One of my thrifty obsessions is to walk through the local Goodwill shop on the weekends, particularly because of the half off sale.  Throughout the day, they announce a color and the price tags labeled in that color are half off.  It never fails, each time the make the announcement they assure you that you […]

I cannot tell a lie.  Sometimes I purchase items because of the container it comes in.  There.  I said it.  In particular, candles are a splurge for me because they are often “expensive”, so I have to wait until they go on sale.  One thing I CAN count on is that I KNOW I will […]

Lucky for me, I get to spend at least two times a week with my best friends and their kids.  We try to schedule play dates every Tuesday and Thursday.  Our little ones have become so close they treat each other like sisters (AKA, an occasional hit or raised voice).  Often times we try to […]
