What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

When we started our KonMari/Decluttering journey, the first thing to go was clothing. Barry and I both thinned out our closets...me dramatically, and him less so because of the different types of clothing he has to wear for work. I even switched to a minimalist wardrobe for the kids - how freeing! Less laundry. Less ironing. Less mess and less clutter. More closet space!I began reading some on Capsule Wardrobes because I saw them mentioned several times on Pinterest when doing research on … [Read more...]



Salads My Husband Will Eat

Salads My Husband Will Eat

Guest post by Diana from Life on Olive StreetSalads have not always appeared on our meal plan. My husband will eat any roasted vegetable I put in front of him - beets, kohlrabi, brussels sprouts - he’s digging in. But raw veggies have been a tougher sell. Through trial and a few errors, I've found some man-pleasing salads to get some greens into the whole family. ...and don't worry - these will work for most any of your picky veggie eaters. ;)I'm a no-recipe kind of girl, so I like the … [Read more...]

Guest post by The Former Mrs. JonesIt was 11:30 at night when I swiped my Discover card through the credit card slot at the gas pump. I remember feeling nervous because I wasn't sure if little screen would read back "card declined" or "see attendant." I was pretty sure there was at least $80 of credit left on the almost maxed out $5,000 credit card, and all I needed was $20 in gas so my husband could get to work the next day.

When Eating Crap Makes You Feel Like…Crap

Maybe you're not like me. Maybe you don't use excuses. Maybe you don't fall into ruts. Maybe you don't get lazy. Maybe you don't forget to brush your teeth. Maybe you don't go half-naked to church. But I do.I've long since confessed to you guys that I don't consider myself a Crunchy Mom or a Whole Foods Blogger. I'm not even sure what I consider myself....except just a mom trying to do her best with what she has.But, see...I let myself fall into a trap. "Well, I'm not a crunchy mom - and … [Read more...]
