5 Ways to Save Money on Your Energy Bill

5 Ways to Save Money on Your Energy Bill

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in collaboration with CopyPress.   Several years ago, we moved into our huge new house, which features 5,000 square feet of space that gives us room to grow. However, I quickly realized a house that large is difficult to keep clean and presents some surprises on the energy bill. Some research led me to ideas on how to save money on our energy bill by making simple changes to our routine and maintenance plan. Change Your Air Filters Regularly Our HVAC systems use filters to keep the air we breathe free of allergens, dust, […]

Organizing for Your Lifestyle, Bust Clutter Once and for All

Organizing for Your Lifestyle, Bust Clutter Once and for All

Organizing and decluttering – that’s been on my goals list for a while, and yet life keeps coming at me and making that goal slip on the priorities list. I’m sure you’re in the same boat, because if we were all super organized with decluttered, magazine-quality homes, there wouldn’t be so many books about organizing and decluttering. Organizing for your Lifestyle Review I was given the opportunity to receive a free copy of and share my honest review with my lovely readers, so here we go, all honesty. The book has a lot of golden nuggets, but they are not […]

5 Tips for an Easier {Military} Move

5 Tips for an Easier {Military} Move

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Moving house is always a complicated process, full of big emotions and sometimes difficult decisions. Some people are pros at moving and others, like me, find it a very stressful life event. In the past decade, I have moved three times, and one of those moves was halfway across the country. My husband and I have also had several situations where he had to temporarily live away, whether for an extended Army school, mobilization, or a new civilian job opportunity. These […]

How to Declutter Like a Boss

How to Declutter Like a Boss

How does one small family accumulate so much stuff? I bet you’ve been asking yourself that question, ‘cause I know I have! We moved into this house about two years ago, and it felt like we got rid of a lot of stuff before we moved. But here we are, with a bigger house full of things and stuff we don’t even use on a regular basis. Of course, when we had the baby the house became full of his stuff, and oh man do babies cause a house to look cluttered. At least, the baby uses his stuff all […]

Our DIY Swing set project

Our DIY Swing set project

Baby H got a lovely toddler swing for his first birthday, but hadn’t been able to use it too much. See, it is meant to be hanging from something, and that something is typically a tree. But it has been raining so much here lately, and our yard stays wet for days and days after a big storm. So we really didn’t get to swing him much since no one wants to wade through  mud to swing a little boy. Hubby to the rescue with a DIY idea to build a swing set out of lumber that can stand on […]

‘A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization’ Review

Raise your hand if one of your new years resolutions (every year) is to declutter and organize your home? Well, me too. As I’m working on a review of my goals post, I realize how little I got done this year (being a new mom who works full time will do that to you) so I was thrilled to have a chance to read and review a book on home organization. I received the book in exchange for my honest review. What I liked about : This book contains some practical ideas that are simple to implement but would really […]

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Are you getting ready to move into a new home? When we moved into our new house, wow almost 2 years ago now, we stayed with our former providers since we were under contract and were still happy with our services. But it would have been nice to have a chance to shop around and see if we were able to get a good deal. One thing that is great about being a new customer is you can get the new customer deal. This usually lasts about a year, but then the rates tend to go up once that promotional […]
