Hello all you wonderful people! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was wonderfully restful (well, Sunday was restful). It’s nice to have those every once in awhile.
I love seeing all your projects! You all are very inspiring. I do pin your projects on my Favorite’s Board.
For those that love parties, especially Pinterest Parties, please link up to my Spring is Here Pinterest Party (the linky will close on the 22nd)!!
I am in need of guest posts! I want to feature a guest post every Saturday, or at least every other [...]
I’ve been mentioning in several posts about how we’ve taken on the task of going through each room in our house and decluttering. (I’ve gotten this idea from Money Saving Mom’s book.)
We first gathered boxes together and labeled them as:
- Sell/Give away
- Put away
- Upcycle (or this could be called craft/DIY supplies)
- Trash (in a bag)
- File (tray)
Then, we had two scratch pieces of paper to list out:
- Big Projects to Tackle
- Furniture to sell
- Things to do
- Organizational things to [...]

The Money $aving Mom’s Budget
I have been a follower of the blog Money Saving Mom, by Crystal Paine for a little over a year. Her blog was one of the first blogs I started reading. It was after reading Crystal’s blog and others that I first wanted to blog more myself. I have been so inspired by her over this last year.
So it came as no surprise to my husband when I [...]
Yesterday I posted my goals for the year (better late than never – right?) and soon I’ll post goals for the month of March. Also, each week I will plan on blogging about my 10 Weekly Goals. By breaking down my goals to manageable bit size pieces, I’m more likely to follow through. Here are my goals for this week:
(Side note: Normally I post my Menu Plan for the week on Mondays. This week I’m getting my kitchen put back together, so I don’t have a menu plan ready.)
1. Ask my husband daily: “Is [...]
I know it’s already the end of February and not New Year’s day, when we are supposed to making resolutions. But, better late than never – right? Tomorrow (Monday) and each week I will be posting Weekly Goals – this will help me accomplish these broader goals.
**Stay tuned for a Pinterest Party I will be hosting each Sunday for the month of March!! Here’s a hint**
- Go on a planning weekend (overnight trip with hubby for planning, talking, goal accountability) – Have monthly date nights – Read at least two books on marriage [...]
I have followed Money Saving Mom® almost a year now and have learned much. Crystal’s articles on Time Management have been in inspiration to me, but it’s still one of those things that takes time, putting it into practice and sometimes learning the hard way.
Even though I know that “I can’t do it all”, sometimes I plan like I can do it all. I am over ambitious and it takes me longer than the average person to figure out what I can or can’t do with my time. It is VERY important to determine your priorities, so you don’t [...]
My last post about goals was for the Month of October. I don’t know how November got away from me so fast!! I DID write done goals for November, just never posted them.
This list of goals I will try to prioritize, because most of the time they are not time sensitive, but still very important.
I think I often confuse goals with what’s on my to-do list (which I always have a million and one things I want to do)!!
I sat down this morning and came up with goals for the month of October. Then, as each week approaches I will set goals for that week that link up with my monthly goal.
***As you will notice this list does not include anything for my blog. My blog has been more my hobby/obsession lately. I WILL get things done for my blog (i.e. my 31 Day series) and I consider that list to-do’s.
