Hello readers, When I started this journey one year ago, I wasn’t sure I would ever get to this point. The worries were there and tugged at the back of my mind.

It’s time to reveal my 30 Day Challenge for July. So, this month I am going to complete four do-it-myself projects around the house that need to get done. My goal is one project a week, but as long as all four get done by the end of the month, I consider my goal met.… Continue reading It is here! 30 Day Challenge July Goal Revealed
June was all about sending love, affirmation, and well wishes to others. 30 letters in 30 days. These could be in the form of an email or handwritten letter. I bought some brightly colored, fun cards from Target and was eager to get to work. Did I meet my goal? Sun Mon Tue Wed Thurs… Continue reading 30 Day Challenge June Results!
While listening to the radio this morning, I heard the DJs mention that June 1st is “Say Something Nice Day.” Many listeners were calling in to thank the radio station for their program and sent warm wishes to others they had thought about like grandparents, parents, spouses, co-workers, etc. After thinking about it, it seems silly that… Continue reading June’s 30 Day Challenge Revealed

One Swagbuck is equivalent to $0.01, but as most… Continue reading A Website that Allows you to Earn Cash By Searching, Surveying, and Shopping

Each month I have chosen a task to challenge myself in some way for the better. In January, it was to blog every day–fail. In February, it was to declutter eliminating one item a day from my life–success. In fact, I’m still getting rid of things frequently. A week ago I went through my closet and… Continue reading March’s Results and April’s Plan – 30 Day Challenge Revealed
Late Saturday night–as I was laying in bed–I realized I never made it to Target as planned. Bummed that I wouldn’t be able to utilize the $15 off a $50 cleaning product promotion since the store closed 10 minutes prior and sale cycles end on Saturdays, I went online to see if I could order the items… Continue reading If you are not using this free Target service, you should! It’s the perfect solution for anyone with a busy life.
Since my husband and I have been married, we’ve kept a tradition of making pancakes on Sundays. Our kids wake us up Sunday mornings and ask to make pancakes. Excitedly, they run to the kitchen and both fight over who will get to sit on the counter and stir the mix. After pouring each child a… Continue reading Pancake Sunday: A family tradition.
