A Free Life Changing Book

While reading Candy's blog ( which I love ) I decided to click on the link for a free book.  I am in love with this book thus far and wanted to share the link here on my blog.

Cash envelope system and a giveaway

Toni, over at A bowl full of lemons ( LOVE her blog ), has a Cash envelope system and a giveaway... post today ! Head on over and check it out by clicking here The giveaway is currently open and will   end at midnight on 1/16. Good luck.


I have been grocery shopping since I was 13 years old and as long as I can remember have always used coupons. Although my grandmother would send me to the store with a list and any coupons she may have had I never learned the art of couponing. I do cut them from the Sunday paper but I don't use them !

I found a couponing site and am learning the art of couponing from Kitty at coupon divas . I will be journaling about this as I learn. Perhaps we will learn some things together :-) !

My thoughts on a homemaking binder

I have read a lot of blogs about Homemaking Binders and their benefits. I loved the idea so much that I decided to create one myself. I need to work on being organized and so far I really love it even though it is a work in progress. I plan on having some pictures and steps in place this weekend so stay tuned !

Here I go

I have never attempted to blog before but it has been in my heart to try it so here I go!
While I cannot promise that I will be here daily I can promise that I will try very hard to be here !
