Welcome to the Minimalist[ish] Coffee Mom.This has been a thought in my mind since September of last year.

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.
I decided to pack my entire wardrobe. If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know I'm pretty minimal when it comes to my wardrobe as is.

This week I made the hard decision to stop doing YouTube videos. With finding out that work is going to be closed until next year and just trying to navigate my thoughts, I just have not had the energy to make a video. It's time consuming to not only make a video but edit one … Continue reading Decisions.
A few weeks ago it seemed as if the "stay at home" order in my state was going to be extended. But then all of a sudden, New Hampshire was [pretty much] going to reopen on June 15th. That's just how it's been; things can turn a complete 180 the next week or even the … Continue reading NH Reopens.
Hello friends, we are back on [blog] track. 🙂 I've been trying to find little joys in some "not so common" things for myself. I decided to place a Grove Collaborative order (I haven't since we moved to the house) and get a few Mrs. Meyers products to make cleaning more "fun."Now if you know … Continue reading Lately.
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.
