Azure Standard Day (AKA the post where I ramble about produce prices and buy tree bark).

Yesterday we picked up our Azure Standard order from our Drop Point in Rickreall.  It was a more unusual order for us. We desperately needed blueberries and I could not find organic or spray free blueberries for a reasonable price for the life of me.  We had gone through our stash of frozen blueberries that…

Azure Standard Day

Yesterday was our Azure Standard delivery day at the drop point we use.  My friend and I take turns picking it up and it always feels a little like Christmas.  We always seem to stop at Burgerville, so it is good we don’t pick it up every time. We happened to be out of a…

Schedule Time

It is time to try and institute a schedule into our days.  I am sure we will stray from it here and there, but I think it will help our days have more purpose and organization.  I also think my house will thank me for it.  We have been improving in certain areas, but things…

Works For Us-Coffee Filters as Bowls

As much as I love the cheap and colorful Ikea bowls (that are supposedly BPA free), I am quite simply drowning in them.  By the end of the day the sink is FULL and between all 3 kiddos we have gone through a pile of them.  Yesterday we did our coffee filter craft again and…

Laundry Basket Dressers

  The Hubs has been working hard making my dreams come true the past few days.  After a trip to Home Depot he had the supplies to make 3 storage systems for laundry baskets.  I have seen these called “Laundry Basket Dressers” and have not been able to think up a cuter name.  The only…

Planner Love

Last year I asked for a planner for Christmas.  My mom and I both share a love for organization and office supply type things.  She and I decided on the Mom Agenda Desktop planner for me.  Although there were pockets of time I did not keep up with it out of laziness, I still LOVED…

The Big List (of stuff to do before baby comes)

Almost every pregnant person I know makes all sorts of lists.  One of the most important is the list that contains all of the things that need to be done before baby (or babies) arrive.  Some of the things on my list are the fun preparing for baby things, but most are home related.  My…

A P.S.A. for bag owners.

This is a Public Service Announcement! This morning as I was preparing for family pictures I decided to look for that one missing hat I needed to reach Gymboree Matching Bliss (G.M.B.) (don’ t judge me, I used coupons).  I figured I should look in the diaper bag to make sure it had not been…

Start Saving Right Now #2:Reduce Your Consumables

After using coupons for awhile and constantly being on the quest to save ourselves money, I realized that there were many things that we buy that we might be able to do with out (or use much less of).  After I started cloth diapering I was especially aware of paper products that could be replaced…

Messy Monday: Update… The Pantry

Since I am not quite ready to take on a new big project I decided to just save my update photos for today’s Messy Monday post.   Last weeks project was a success!  I am happy to say that I have a much more organized pantry and I love it.  It is so nice to …
