The new documentary film Less is Now, is finally out on Netflix. If you would have told me that I'd be outside for a hike in January, I would have laughed in your face. No really, I would have.I was one to take the kids to the library, indoor park and so forth. But you'd … Continue reading Less Is NOW.
In 2019, I did a "no spend month" or ["NSM" for short] in November. I decided to bring it back. I've wanted to take a better look at my spending now that it's been a few months that my kiddos dad moved out post "quarantine." One of the key points I learned last NSM was … Continue reading No Spend January.
So I failed the 30 day decluttering game. Okay, not really, but I got your attention didn't I? 😉 The goal of the game was to declutter almost 500 items in 30 days. I honestly would have met this had I not gone to Goodwill the month before and dropped off like 4 giant bags … Continue reading The Minimalists Game Results.
One night a few weeks ago when I was putting my oldest to bed and I started rubbing her back. It just hit me that her back was "massive." She no longer was the little 22 month old when she first asked me to rub her back. At that time, my hand could cover most … Continue reading Mom Guilt.
I put "day off" in quotations because let's be real, a mom's brain never just shuts off. On these days, you'll find me spending a good chunk of the time cleaning the kids room, doing laundry and just trying to do things that just take too long with the kiddos around. Each "day off" varies, … Continue reading Day In The Life: Mom “Day Off.”
Well just about 500 items. I stumbled across THIS video a few days ago and thought this 30-Day Minimalism game would be fun to give it a shot. Granted we were already a few days into the month, but you can [realistically] start it any time. Right now I am at 81 items, which almost … Continue reading Declutter 500 in 30 Days.
When my husband and I first separated officially last year, I went through our wedding box and got rid of 80% of any "memories." I ended up saving some items in case we got back together. There were some items I saved for our children, as no matter what we are both still their parents. … Continue reading Past Memories.
My daughter started Kindergarten (hybrid model) on September 10th.It's been a few weeks since she's started her A.M session and only two since she started her "remote learning" sessions. The in school portion is two and a half hours. She is going five days a week unless she happens to be off on that particular … Continue reading Kindergarten, COVID Style.
My first born just turn FIVE this past week. I honestly cannot believe she is five. The cliche is true; they grow up too fast.As of right now, our town [re-voted] will have a hybrid and fully remote learning option. We plan to have our oldest do the hybrid option. This wouldn't be so new … Continue reading Minimalist Homeschool “Room” [Pre-K & K]
We got a new table and chair set after a couple of chairs had broken from our kitchen set. It was from Pat's grandmother and I believe it was almost 50 years old. It's definitely served it's purpose. During quarantine, the kitchen table had become the hot spot for a million activities, including homeschooling.It was … Continue reading New Addition.
