Decluttering Life and Mind

Decluttering Life and Mind

Lately I have been doing a lot of decluttering at home. As I alluded to in Monday’s post, I have been noticing things. The more cluttered I am in mind, the worse the stress seems. If my house is really messy and very disorganized, I feel disorganized and sort of lost with what I need to do. If I go through a pile of papers and deal with them, I feel better.

Monday Update

Hello everyone again! This week is a new week. At least, that is what I keep telling myself. I am tired and I did not sleep so well last night. Sometimes I think sleep and I could be better friends, but we both have different agendas so what is the point? Saving money has been an unusual experience these last few weeks.

Monday Update

What a last week (or two? I have no idea anymore.) this has been! I logged more miles in five days than I have in a long time. Some of those miles were happy miles, sad miles, and contemplative miles. I would not trade them for anything, but this girl did not know what end was up for a few days after. I started out on the 1st of February driving to Dubuque for the state speech contest courtesy of…

Frugal Tip Friday: Pasta Leftovers

Frugal Tip Friday: Pasta Leftovers

This week’s frugal tip is an off-shoot of yesterday’s post about Corn Casserole. In the tips and suggestions, I have listed one about using up the ends of pasta that are in boxes. I don’t let these gems go to waste! This is still food and money spent. I have actually helped people clean out their food pantries and kitchens and they will throw these away. What?!?! Don’t do that! Let me help you! Invest in one of these: I…
