I tried to post yesterday about some of my plans for this blog and my life and it seems the only thing that didn’t get lost in cyber space was the title.
For me personally this year is going to be about organizing, I feel that if I’m more organized I can save more money. We are also headed into declutter mode, we have lots of stuff and it’s just too much I’m overwhelmed so it’s time to clean out a bunch of stuff and organize what is staying. As a friend of mine said “A place for everything and everything in it’s place”
As for the blog Precious has renewed her money saving challenge and I’m on board again. With the cost of everything going up, up, up I’m going to be figuring out ways to keep my money in my account, I’ll be pinching every penny until it bleeds. I’ll be starting up everyone’s favorite again and will be posting my Freebie Friday posts again the more samples we request the less full size product we’ll use. I will also be posting once a week on how we are doing to save and I’m hoping that you will chime in with how you save. I will also be posting about deals I see and how some of my shopping trips have gone, I’ve never done match-ups before but I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction if you are looking for match-ups, just let me know. Plus you’ll be seeing product reviews and giveaways from me, I occasionally post links and I really appreciate your clicks they allow me to do more and better giveaways for you.
I’ve slowly been growing my craft business and will be continuing that this year. In keeping spending in check I’ll be challenging myself to use up alot of my supplies before I buy new items. There are things I will have to keep replacing as I sell things but I think it will be fun to force myself to use up some of the odds and ends before buying more stuff. Make sure you check out my Etsy page to see what I currently have for sale!! This year I’ll also be posting a few tutorials/ideas for gifts, one easy way to help with spending around the holidays or birthdays is to give handmade gifts and I’ve never given a handmade item that wasn’t well received.
So be sure to check back, it may take a few weeks to get the blog organized but you can look forward to Freebie Fridays coming soon and a How We’ve Saved post probably over the weekends. And don’t forget about the giveaways, I maybe working on one right now for you.
