This year over 1.75 million college students walked across the stage to pick up their diplomas. Seniors everywhere were excited to graduate as parents were thinking about words of wisdom to impart.

Personal Economy (By Sarah Senst)

Our country continues to be in a strained economy. These past few years have been a humbling experience for me and my children. And while it has been a stressful time, many good things have come of it. We have found ways to do without, redefined our true needs and have a better understanding of what are our priorities. For example, in our family, we value time together now more than ever. And through difficult times we have grown closer and work much better as a team.

It is important,…

This is my blog about my recent experiences looking for a job in my new town. 

 

It's not just the economy, stupid!

You know that saying, "It's the economy, stupid" that we always here as an excuse for everything when the economy is not so great?  It is really over-used, and…

Trend - Minimalist Wardrobe

The sad state of our economy and our increased willingness to be good to Mother Earth has motivated us to think in new ways about our wardrobes. It’s a case of less is more. It’s a little bit of a scary notion for some of us, to think that maybe only one pair of shoes and less than a dozen garment pieces and and handful of accessories would suffice, but the merits of a minimalist wardrobe need to be considered.…

The Most Important Things in Life and Saving Money

I was in a shop a few months back and it had a cute little collection of hand-painted inspirational plaques. One of them caught my eye because it firmly invoked a belief I have. It said:



The most important things in life are not things.


Turns out it's a quote from Anthony J. D'Angelo who is the founder of The Collegiate Empowerment Company.



While I used to collect a lot of things, I've discovered in recent years that some things are not only… Continue

Misplaced Mom

I have been misplaced by a weak economy – trapped in a small house with three children, stripped of my self-worth and blind folded to any clear direction. Though I have been a stay-at-home mom for nine years, five of them have been spent trying to build a career. Unlike most moms I didn’t choose to be a stay-at-homer; I was cast into the role when the $800 a month daycare bill was pushing us toward the poorhouse. Since landing this role I have been fighting to eke out a…

Earth Promise: New Green Mileage Standards

New automobile emissions standards are on the right track. President Obama is serious when it comes to fighting our global warming dilemma, creating new eco-related jobs and reducing our ongoing dependence on foreign oil. By 2016, all auto makers are required to make new cars and trucks get 30 percent better mileage. It will be a gradual phasing in process with the 2011 new automobile models. Initially, it will cost the consumers a bit more per vehicle, but these “new… Continue

Earth Promise: Reduce and Reuse: It Helps the Environment

Stuff. Possessions. Things. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!) There may be a psychological underlying reason why you hold onto your stuff, but no matter what the reason is, there are ways to help reduce and reuse it.



Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:



Birthday party favors. When my girls come home from birthday parties, the flood… Continue

My Stimulus Plan -- Being Grateful

What makes you feel grateful for everything you have in your life? For me it is hearing the wind howl in the trees outside. I’ll explain…



Last night, I crawled into bed at 1 a.m. after finishing an editing project, and as I sighed and got all cozy and warm next to Landon, I heard the wind howl outside. There is something about that noise that instantly makes me appreciate that I have a roof over my head. Sure, most people do, but it’s not just about having a roof over my head. It… Continue

Purple is the New Green When it Comes to Shopping

Online shopping: I know I couldn’t live without it. It’s one of the most convenient tools the Internet has to offer. Every search engine or guide plugs that they make it the easiest, fastest or have the largest selection available.

Meal for family of 4 on a Budget!

hello & welcome to my first blog post from Australia......the US economy and rising oil prices, along with our own depressed economy have had an effect on our pockets over here in Australia. Thankfully, just before Christmas, our gas prices dropped slightly and we had two small consecutive interest rate cuts. That put some extra jangle in our pockets for Christmas craziness (yay to shopping)!

Anyway, being a familY of fouR + puppy we've been… Continue
