Keeping Kids Crafts Organized


This was one of Audrey's favorite Christmas gifts a few months ago and I wanted to share it with you. I got her this Craftsman tool bag at Kmart for $12. This bag really takes a beating too!

Why I Rarely Use Coupons


I used to use coupons and stockpile a few years back. It’s funny how things and habits change. It’s not that I won’t use coupons or don’t like them. I don’t mind them. If they actually are for something I plan to buy before they expire and was planning on buying anyway. I know a […]


How I Organize Under my Sink


The spring cleaning and organizing bug has already begun to hit me. I just want everything cleaned and organized and I have a big to-do list I am working through. Today I cleaned under our sink. It was pretty gross. I am so relieved to get this project out of the way! Seriously. How does […]

Books I’m reading {February 2015 Edition}

How I Organize my Taxes


I’ve had my own Shaklee Business for 4 years now this month. And that has many perks. But nothing prepared me for what tax season would be like as a business owner. The first two years I was so unorganized. I didn’t document expenses very well and I was so stressed about it all come […]
