Motherhood and Identity

Over the past week I've been mulling over my state of affairs. No writing. Thinking. Reflecting. Considering.
I've been thinking about my day-to-day activities and long-term plans. As a stay-at-home mom, I've got a pretty good gig. I can't get fired, I don't get performance reviews (most of the time), and I get to spend time with my kids, volunteer at school and care for my…

January and February mean white sales. You can take advantage of deep discounts on both sheets, comforters, blankets, bedding, towels and more. I love the idea of huge savings on goods, but keep in mind that prices may have been inflated from the… Continue

10 Ways to Cut Down on Energy Costs this Spring

In an effort to not only conserve energy, but to save money, I encourage you to give some thought into doing some (if not all) of the following things:






  • Wash clothes in cold water. I have been doing this for the past year & my clothes are just as clean as they were when I used hot water.

  • Turn down your water heater. While it is nice to take steamy showers in the winter, you will find that your body will…

The Many Uses of Dish Liquid

While I was throwing a load of laundry in the other day, my mind had a flash back to times when I didn't always use laundry soap for every wash. Back in my pre-divorce days, we had little money at times for groceries so I had to come up with other ways for other things.When I ran out of laundry soap, I would use dish liquid, and at times add some baking soda to the wash.
