Baseball season is under way and with our boys being on different teams we are spending a lot of time outdoors. This past weekend had a triple header. The first game started at 1 pm and the last one didn’t end until about 8:30 pm. Spending that much time outdoors, I want to spoil myself and enjoy some little luxuries that will make my life easier and bit more comfortable.
Renovating a Bedroom can be costly. However living on one income we don’t have that luxury to spend a lot. We have to do the work ourselves and spend our money wisely. We recently renovated one of our bedrooms. We also added new flooring and did this all on a small budget.
Dr. Seuss week is quickly approaching. If you’re like me, you’ve been unprepared in the past. My kids come home with information from school to dress up like a Dr. Seuss character. They normally go without dressing up, but this year I’m planning on being prepared.
Make money at home, using your computer. Yes, you heard me right. You can make money online and it’s quite easy to do.

We went through ours and instead of buying new ones I decided it would be best to create and print our own. Especially since we use our cash envelopes for so many different things such as groceries, gas, clothing and so on.
It’s time for New Years Resolution Goals. The year flew by fast and now I’m thinking about the goals I want to accomplish for the new year. If you’re like me many of the goals you are setting are likely a repeat of goals you set for the previous year. That got me thinking that I really needed to do things differently in order to accomplish my goals for this year.
Let’s be honest here, I stink at accomplishing goals. I give up way too easy or somehow find a way or excuse out. I start off all gung ho and then I lose interest or it becomes too hard to continue with and I just stop.
