It's been a busy weekend so far! I totally reorganized my Christmas decorations - I went through every box I had (and there were a lot of boxes). I tried to put things together that seemed logical to me like the dining room tree ornaments with the tree I used in there and so on. I also made labels for all my boxes. Oh, and after years of using mainly cardboard boxes we splurged on some more see ... Read More about Monogrammed Pillow
All I can say is Whew!! It was so busy at IKEA today! I really thought nobody would be there today and boy was I wrong. I bought a pine bookcase that has a pull out bin on the bottom to organize some of my craft stuff. My husband thought I'd like the pine especially "because you can paint it" wink wink wink! He likes to tease me about painting stuff since I paint so many things! Of course it has ... Read More about My IKEA Trip Today

I think I washed the kitchen floor ... Read More about That’s not me!
Did anyone besides me go to the thrift store for after Christmas sales? I found these pretty red candle holders for $1.51. I love red all year round, so these will fit into my normal decorating! Some of the online after Christmas sales were better than the brick and mortar sales. I got that beautiful folk art candle online here at 75% off - it was only $3.50. I couldn't believe ...

~Dave Ramsey Hi there! I hope everyone had lovely Christmas - we did! But I'm already thinking about putting all the decorations away - I'm really not a Grinch...really! I just feel claustrophobic with so much stuff in a small space. It feels messy to me. I want to start organizing and getting ready for what will be a fabulous New Year (I always have such hope)! I'm working on tweaking our ... Read More about What Are Your Top 5 Financial Goals for 2009?
