Savings Catcher (No, I don’t work for Walmart…)

Savings Catcher (No, I don’t work for Walmart…)

NON Disclosure I am not affiliated with Walmart in any way, nor am I being compensated for this post. I REALLY want you to know about this cool program because it can earn you money easily, just for shopping at this crazy store! Okay, Walmart. How I loathe shopping at this particular chain of stores…but do every single week … Continue reading

Not Quite a Minimalist…Yet (Movies)

Not Quite a Minimalist…Yet (Movies)

Several years ago, I became so overwhelmed by the amount of “stuff” we had, that I started decluttering. Major decluttering. I’m sure this happens to many people, especially after having children (because we tend to accumulate a lot for them), but it surprised me nevertheless. I did a series of posts on Too Much Stuff, back in 2012, but I have found … Continue reading

Keeping the Home: Fragrance

Keeping the Home: Fragrance

Welcome to another Keeping the Home post! This one is about something I would REALLY like your thoughts on: home fragrance. I have a few techniques, but I would love more!

The theme is Transparency and Authenticity, and the “rules” are quite flexible. :) Basically, share a photo or post that displays something you wouldn’t normally feel too great about showing to the world. In my case, that’s my kitchen. … Continue reading

Keeping the Home: Laundry

Keeping the Home: Laundry

Welcome to a new series of posts meant to encourage us to share how we keep the home, and learn from each other’s methods. Today’s topic is Laundry. With a family of five, you’d be right to assume that I wash a fair amount of clothes; usually one to two loads a day. I would … Continue reading

What’s Your HouseKeeping Style?

What’s Your HouseKeeping Style?

There are many ways to keep a home; from messy to spotless and every variation in between! But the state of our homes isn’t really what this post is about. Instead, I would like to talk about the techniques, cleaning schedules, relaxedness, and all the other ways we make our homes the state that they are. I have … Continue reading

Creating a Guest Room Your Guests Will Love

Creating a Guest Room Your Guests Will Love

Originally posted on Along Came Ollie:
Ever been a guest in someone’s home and felt like an inconvenience? Or worse, been the host of visitors and realized after the fact that you forgot to provide some basic necessity like shampoo? Though I loved the guest room in my old house (posted here last week), I do…

A New Way of Using Pinterest

A New Way of Using Pinterest

I am re-evaluating many things in my life at the moment. I have been thinking a lot about my habits, and how many of them are changing (or soon will be). My online behavior is starting to be different, and once January comes, there will be major differences. I am excited about how they are impacting my days. … Continue reading
