Hey Everyone! We are halfway though the month and still battling the summer heat. I bet many a reader is ready for fall and some cooler weather, amiright? 😉
I have been getting rid of clothes. I went though my closet and really looked at each item and really asked myself if I actually do wear the item and if not, it went into the donation pile. Also anything that had holes or was ripped, came off the hanger and into a pile as well. I am someone who hangs onto clothes until they literally shred into pieces people… Like, seriously, that’s how I roll, so some of the things were hard to let go of, but I know it really is for the best. I did end up filling several bags, so that’s a good thing right? Now, all I have in my closet are pieces that I absolutely and truly wear, and there is no more standing in front of my closet, staring at my clothes, wondering what I am going to wear. Now I know!
The school my daughter will be attending for kindergarten sent out a list of all the things I need to get for her, so I will be officially joining the throngs of parents who have to back-to-school shop for their kids. I am now part of the club 😉 By the way, if you are looking to save money on this particular task, check out my friend Shannon’s post over at The Heavy Purse.
A book I just finished reading that I really loved was Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider, the creator of The Art of Simple. Absolutely great book for anyone to read but especially as a mom, I really enjoyed the parts of the book where she talks about having a homemaking/household binder (which I do) and how to streamline and simplify your life when you have young kiddos. I give the book two thumbs up!
Anyone else counting the days till Trader Joe’s has this in stock? I know I am not the only one!! 😉
My friend Tonya over at Budget and the Beach made a hilarious video about what it is REALLY LIKE to be a freelancer. It is not full of martini lunches and long days at the beach, if that’s what you thought! Go check out her post, I swear you’ll love it!
What’s been going on in your world? I want to know!
