Blogger Procrastination and Renovation

  • I've not made a habit of updating this blog as ofen as I would've liked.  I think that I'm holding back the mundane aspects of our days, thinking that I'll wait for something exciting to happen and blog about.  I'm considering adding some daily inspirations on here as a minimum to blog about.  We'll see how that goes.  With all of the renovating going on, I've been focusing a lot on our daily routines/living and saving simply.  I'm a huge Dave Ramsey fan and have lately been subscribing to e-mealz and love it !  We do the low-fat Wal-Mart plan.  It truly cost~$75 for 7 nice, well-balanced meals.  After the first week, we had to cut down to buying only 5 of the meals per week due to having too much food!  *Insert reminder here that our kids are 6, 4, and 13 months and do not consume the amount that they will be in their teens, at which point we may need to double this menu!  There is at least one item per meal that I can get my picky eater to try.  My next venture
    is to try out the Southern Savers method on the rest of our grocery, cosmetic, and pharmacy list to see if we can get the knack of this couponing venture once and for all.  So far, I've planned to make a list of all of the items that we buy to see if I can get the hang of picking out when they go on sale every six weeks.  I thought the video tutorials were great at explaining the tricks that these'smart moms' use to beat the system.  Baby steps, people.  Speaking of baby steps, I'm also a fan of fly lady's baby steps and subscribe to the daily e-mails.  I'm by no way accomplishing all that she suggests, but I do receive daily motivation to do a load of laundry and figure out what we're eating for dinner at 8am.  Will share more later, hungry kids interruptamous and must cook e-mealz day five now, tumble a load of laundry, and shine my sink!
