It’s tough getting by on one income. Like tight with a capital T. I quit working full time when I was pregnant with my second child, the week after I finished my MBA. Great timing? We thought we were in pretty good shape. No debt, except the mortgage. A little savings. A budget. Boy, were […]
I love books. Almost any kind of book. Fiction. Non-fiction. Biography. Historical. Classical. Mystery. Most self-improvement (there are some wackos out there, though). Funny. Adventurous.

Anytime I’m looking at making a change in an area, such as healthy habits or decluttering or self-sufficiency, I often find myself spiraling down into an anxiety attack as I try to do too much at once.

Has anyone ever wondered about the people who pin perfectly decorated cupcakes, amazingly delicious cookies, totally cute craft projects, or ingenious DIY renovations? Are they really people or alien life forms sent to make us normal humans look like total losers? You think I jest, but have you ever really come close to copying one […]
Most moms are always looking for a way to help generate a little extra money, if it’s only to be able to finance another purchase. An odd job here or there stretches the budget. One project I have done off and on for several years is sell our outgrown clothes and toys. There are several options […]
The cleaning aisle is filled with lemon-scented products, from dusting to soaps. Lemon is the rage. Why? Well, because lemon is great. It rocks the cleaning world. Ever notice that lemon wedge on your glass of water at the restaurant? It’s for more than decoration. Lemonade on a hot summer day. Refreshing. If you don’t […]
