My Personal Policies (Life Rules I Follow)

February 20, 2019

Have you ever thought about what your personal policies or 'life rules' are?  You have them, we all do.  They shape your life, in a good way, and generally come from life experiences, because they're the way you protect your time and health.  I think it's important to be aware of what these boundaries are for you, because otherwise your time and energy will just get hijacked by other people and what's important to them.  If you've never sat down and considered what yours are, it's an interesting exercise.  Here are some of mine:


Ways to Organize This Month

I'm hoping February can be as organized as January.  Everyone gets the organizing bug in January, it's usually a new year resolution.  But getting fully organized is a process, it won't happen in a month.  A month isn't enough time, usually, to organize everything in a home but it's also definitely not enough time to change habits that you need to stay organized.  Hopefully these few ideas will help you out this month and into your very organized future.

Reverse Bucket List

February 15, 2019

I love January, when everyone shares what their resolutions are and all their bucket lists for things they want to do in the new year and beyond.  A lot of times those lists include things I'd never do (skydive, have a baby), but other times those lists include a ton of things I've already done.  Which is pretty awesome to realize - I've lived quite a life already!  Here are just a few of the highlights:

Did you watch the Marie Kondo Netflix show and declutter your entire house top to bottom?  I know it lit a fire under pretty much everyone's ass, so I wouldn't be surprised.  That tiny, adorable Japanese woman has wormed her way into American hearts and convinced everyone to tidy their lives.  I like it.

My 5 Minute Makeup Routine

I like getting up early-ish in the mornings.  I find I'm able to get a lot done if I wake up when John does, since he leaves for work over an hour before I need to.  But a full face of makeup is not one of those things I want to spend my productive morning hour on (and I'd also need to spend more time taking it off at the end of the day, which I never feel like doing.)  I'm just not up for the whole entire makeup routine - I save that for evenings out when I feel like playing around.  In the mornings before work, I'd rather just get it done in 5 minutes and get out the door.  I know a lot of people feel the same way, so I thought I would share my routine and products.  And I have timed it!  This does take me just a few minutes:

Ways to Save This Month

I saw a ton of 'no spend January' goals last month.  If that was you, how did it go?  I hope you saved a ton.  But whether you were successful or not, I have more ideas for you for this month to continue saving money in 2019:


February Plan With Me

Is it just me, or did January feel like it had 74 days?  I'm not complaining, I actually like January as a month and it's been negative degrees cold, which I also enjoy, so a long January is fine for me but man, it just seems like New Year's Eve was months ago.
