In the last 3 months, our grocery buying and meal prep has undergone a drastic change. We needed a reset of our food buying habits and a new plan for getting meals on the table! I never thought that how I’ve always bought groceries and planned our meals would need an remodel but it did and I’m excited to tell you about it.
Finances. Money. Budget. Sigh. This topic falls closest to a resolution as I’m going to get this year. Honestly we fell down on the job of keeping track of our finances and we needed a reboot for this year. Can I get an amen? Surely we weren’t the only ones.
The crazy busyness of December and all the fun of the holidays really makes me tired every year. Can I get an amen? January and February have become my recovery months and they are perfect for resetting my Bible reading plan for the new year and I’m adding a hospitality habit this year.
Our family LOVES to make gifts for others at Christmas. It’s economical and it makes it extra special when it’s handmade! We also have a tradition of a new ornament each year for everyone so these DIY Jenga Ornaments are perfect as they are handmade and cost very little to make!
As with many of my crafts I started with the items in my home and then went to the Dollar Tree for the rest of my supplies. I’m always surprised what I find there! What doesn’t surprise me is the great bargains!
Tomorrow is a hard day. In the past we've had so many Thanksgiving meals with my parents and siblings. That tradition has not occurred for several years since my mom passed away and now my dad is gone as well. Suddenly the holidays are a something that make me sad.
