Etsy shop!

Well, I joined the bandwagon and started an Etsy shop!  I’ve loved Etsy for a long time, but didn’t really like the idea of having to ship things to someone else across the country so I never considered starting a shop.  Well, I recently realized that I could sell FILES – no shipping required!  Since … Continue reading

Blog updates!

You may have noticed already that I’ve done a little updating to the blog.  I added some photos down the side, added my twitter feed (would love for you to follow me!), and added a “follow my blog” section.  If you feel so inclined, I’d love for you to follow me and get updates whenever … Continue reading


My goal with couponing has always been to save us money.  I’ll admit that didn’t work so well at first because everything looks like a good deal.  Now that I’ve been doing it for a while, I’m a lot better at figuring out what a good deal is and how to manage my couponing. I … Continue reading

Harris Teeter & Aldi weekly trip

I tried something new this week and it didn’t work, so I didn’t get as many deals as I usually do, but here it is anyway.  I usually go to a store on the day they start their deals and for HT, that’s on Wednesday.  But, we’ve had a busy week so I didn’t get … Continue reading

Update on our office built-ins

Well, our built-in project isn’t going quite as quickly as I would have liked.  I guess we didn’t realize how much work this was going to be or how busy we would be the last few weeks.  But it’s coming along.  Here are just a few pictures of our progress. Remember the original plan? And … Continue reading
