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

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.
First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue

What a great day! (Except for the black ant invasion that greeted me this morning in the kitchen, ugh… Do you think 8 traps will do the trick, fast?) I got so much done, it’s beautiful outside, I had a massage . . .
I made a phone call, finally ordered some new contact lenses, and paid some bills this morning, so I got that out of the way. After playing with the babysitter for two hours, Landon took an extended nap (with the help of more… Continue

Unless you are someone like Bill Gates or Donald Trump, you have to live on a budget all the time. In these troublesome economic times, many of us are tightening our spending habits even more. I've been a penny-pincher ever since I was a newlywed living in family student housing in college; after seventeen years it's become a lifestyle rather than something I have to do for economic necessity, even though I do
still have to do so for economic… Continue

Since I want to reach as many readers as possible, I am always glad when I find something free that I can use to promote my blog. When I learned about Entrecard a couple of months ago, I was exited to join. As everyone in the blog word knows, they recently changed their format and are now featuring paid ads, which will be displayed on your blog if you approve them. A lot of mom blog writers I follow are really upset about these changes and are stopping to participate. Maybe they have been with… Continue

I emailed Fox News and told them that I was sorry but I had to decline their request to document my family. At first I was all over it. What a great idea to use our victimization from Madoff to attract readers. I still think I'm on to something but perhaps having a film crew follow me around for the day and translate our lives into a sappy, pitiful story of a family on the decline is not the best way to bring myself fame.
The irony of my blog is that my husband and I are very private… Continue

Today was a great day, and even better — a frugal day. We got up after 9 a.m. (somehow Landon seems to know that it’s the weekend, during the week he gets up around 7:30 a.m. I needed that sleep, I had been up until 2 a.m. again blogging!) and ate a healthy breakfast. I made oatmeal because Landon asked for it (ot meow). I spend a little time on my computer marketing my blog (Twitter and Facebook updates, an e-mail to my friends) and got ready to head out. I wanted to check out the rummage sale… Continue

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

Things are kind of crazy around here. Don is sick with aches and a cough and a headache, so I am trying to get him better, emphasis on trying
because he doesn’t want to take anything. Why do men have to be so difficult when they have a cold? Take two Advil and some cough medicine already instead of groaning so much! I think he’ll live…
And then I got a message today that the deadline for my latest proofreading project—the most tedious one I have worked on in a long time—got… Continue

I know we've all seen the "free" credit report advertisements. Usually you get it free for a month, and if you don't cancel, you find a charge of $14.95 on your credit card. I just came across this neat website that offers you a chance to see your credit score for free without even having to post a credit card or debit card! It's called Credit Karma.… Continue

Fundraising and school are inevitable. But that doesn't mean you have to dole out your hard-earned money on products that end up in the garbage, or on the hips. The company I recently started working with has fortunately been able to combine two of the inevitable issues facing parents today- school fundraising and preserving the earth for our children.
Green Students Fundraising
was started by a group of University students who wanted to… Continue

Do you believe in the powers above? I have been reading quite alot about asking from help from the powers above and yesterday before the fair I looked up in the sky and asked for it to be a wonderful day.
The candles were selling great, got a possible recruit and then they offered a karaoke contest.
