Reflections of a Recovering Good Girl

Get More Out of Life by Ditching Your Inner Good Girl

Hi, my name is Portia and I am a recovering good girl. I think as the oldest of three children I came to my good girl tendencies naturally. At school I studied hard, tried really hard, got good grades and helped my teachers after school. I was such a good girl that during the planning of my high school’s (unsanctioned) senior skip day I was asked to collect my classmate’s money…

Washing Dishes...Again

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.



I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:

1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…

Make email management easy by viewing all of your email accounts via the  feature on the iPhone or iTouch.  

These days many of us have multiple email accounts.  At the minimum we have one for work and one for personal use.  Most likely you have many for personal use and maybe even a couple for work.  It is easy to waste a lot of time logging in and going through email in each of these different accounts.…

Motivation to get out of bed

Yesterday I was so tired and lacking motivation to get out of bed, I decided to stay in bed instead of getting up early and taking a shower before my little monster woke up.  Boy, did I pay the price for that decision.  Instead of the nice, relaxing shower I usually take while she is sleeping I had a really hot and then really…

The All-Purpose Cloth Napkin

2010-06-13 - Simple Sunday - The All-Purpose Cloth Napkin



Years ago, when I moved out on my own, I didn’t have much money. As I began figuring it all out with limited funds–simple, frugal living happened naturally.



Paper towels cost money, so I began to use them with more thought (completely opposite of how…

So Many Books...So Many Colors

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)



I’d seen this long ago on some blog and thought, “Now that would really improve our bookshelf.” I’m always searching for ways to simplify things in our home since clutter and mess really…

5 Simple Ways to Teach Children to Clean

Call me old-fashioned, but a clean home does wonders for me. And not for just me, for my family.



At this stage in our lives, a time when four out of five of us are at home nearly all hours of every day, a clean home keeps us sane. Daily cleaning provides us with a sense of peace, routine and respect for our home and ourselves.



If your children are still under the age of five, you’ll find their natural instincts to be involved in most clean up is…

Another Way to Go Green: Freecycle.com

It’s spring cleaning time, and between the nesting and the mad-rush to get things into a comfy place before my husband returned to work, our house is feeling pretty “clean” at this moment. That is if you can look beyond the disassembled couch, sea of blocks, piles of books and dress-up strewn about the house. So, when I think of spring cleaning I think of not just cleaning, but getting rid of things, starting fresh for the year. And on that note…



I still remember the day…

Dining Out on a Budget

One way to save money is by eliminating or cutting down on dining out. My family of four has put a limit on dining out to once a week and even with that, we almost always use a gift card, a coupon, or dine at a place where kids eat free.



Where do the gift cards come from?



  • Mostly from doing…

Stress-Free Strategy #11

When you have an appointment or firm commitment, allot 15 extra minutes to get where you need to be.

Traffic snarls and unexpected events happen all the time. Don't let them throw off your plans and cause unnecessary stress.



If you're traveling by air, plan to arrive at the airport one hour before domestic departures.



And ALWAYS carry reading material...if you spend… Continue

All the time in the world - just like everyone else

Entrepreneurial Quote of the Day:



“Don’t say that you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Theresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.” -- H. Jackson Brown, JR.





Hello Fabulous Women!



How many times a day do you say – or think – “I don’t have the time,” or “There’s not enough time!” ?



When I ask women entrepreneurs what their… Continue
