Making a List = Organizing Your Thoughts

I’m a list person.  If I don’t have a list, I can’t seem to get things done properly.  If I go to the grocery shop without a list, I buy about 20 things I didn’t really need.  With my budget, it’s just something that I can’t afford to do anymore.  During the day as a…

Analysis Paralysis – Getting things done!

So tonight is the last night I am home with my own thoughts, and I’m thinking about how I can save even more in the next few months.  We have to build a fence for the dog, move the swing set to accommodate for the fence, work on a drainage solution for water undermining our…

Missing Daddy…

I quickly pack up the children in the minivan at 7:15 am to take Daddy and his friend to the airport.  The children are still in pajamas cuddled up with blankets, stuffed animals and a Kindle Tablet.  As we drive to the airport, eyes absorbed into the tablets, they don’t really realize quite what is…

Grocery Bill Reduction – Counting Pennies to $200.00

Groundhog Day!  The Groundhog saw his shadow.  We supposedly have six more weeks of a long cold winter.  Considering where I am, we haven’t had much of a winter as of yet, I’m not too bothered.  But I would rather have spring come, so I can focus on what I love most; Gardening.  This month…

Not your every day blog…

Today is January 31st, 2017.  We are 1/12th into 2017.  Has your new year goals kicked off with a bang or has it gone bust? For our family, it is 8 weeks left until our new arrival.  Our family workout goals ended up a bust as my husband went up instead of down in weight…

Preparing Four for Mini Vacation!

Most would say that preparing for a small trip is fun and exciting.  For me, while exciting and fun, it is a lot of hard work.  It usually starts out with someone getting sick before we leave and then I’m stressing if the trip is truly going to happen for all of us.  We are…

Saving on Storage Solutions

With baby on the way and starting my third trimester, saving money is constantly on my mind.  We desperately needed storage in our small baby room but we didn’t want to spend the several hundred dollars on a storage solution.  And we also didn’t want it to look like we went for the latest Walmart…

Cold Winter Days and Keeping Hot Goals

We all have those cold winter days, where we refuse to go outside.  This am I woke and it was -4 degrees.  It’s the first dash outside that when your lungs take in air, it takes your breath away.  I had to go out to take our daughter to school, but it’s somewhat forgiving when…
