Well, Freebs, #Shelftember is officially over. (How’d it go, by the way??) Now that it’s October, it’s time to whip our wallets into shape! Christmas is only 84 days away if you can believe it (*breathes into paper bag), which means we are in the thick of the most expensive time of the year for most
Don’t miss anything!
Alrighty Freebs! Say TA-TA to disorganization, no routine, and a flustered structure (or lack thereof, ha!). TODAY is the day our Back to Productivity month challenge begins! If you read THIS post then you know exactly what I’m talking about. But if not, here’s a quick refresher… After having a very lax schedule this summer,
Holy smokes, Freebs, where the heck did summer go?? I don’t know about you, but the months flew by! (Well, the months were short, but the days were sure long though…still not sure how that works…) As mentioned on Instagram the other day, while I have thoroughly enjoyed the carefree, fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants schedule that summer brings,
Before I recap how my “Say No To 3” week has been going, I want to introduce you all to next week’s Focus on Finances challenge. This week we are saying NO to eating out…of any kind. Coffee, drive-throughs, gas station drinks, lunch money for your kids, ordering a pizza, even bottled water…you name it.
Does anyone feel like they just finished the Boston Marathon? Or just finished reading The Iliad? However grueling it was for you, I hope you are all undeniably proud of yourselves for making it an entire week spending ZERO DINERO! For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, we just completed our first
Oh boy. Does anyone else’s budget need a clean sweep? Summer is over, our flowers are wilting, the school papers are piling up, and our wallets are in shock from all the fun we’ve had over the summer! #AmIright?? If you’re anything like me, you look at Fall as a time to reboot, recover from a
FREEBS! I have the most EXCITING project for all of us! We are going to hunker down and focus on our finances in November, to make way for the BEST year of Holidays we’ve ever had. In just a few short weeks of working hard we will have Christmas completely paid for, have a stress-free
It’s time! It’s time! The time has come! I’m terrified and can’t stop using exclamation points all at the same time! I explained the other day all about why I’m doing a Fit For Summer 10 Pound Challenge. Whether you want to lose 10 pounds (like I did last summer), or whether you want a serious kick-start to eating
I interrupt my oh-so-lovely-and-lazy trip back home to Oregon to bring you an important announcement: *UPDATE: Registration for the challenge is now open!! Click HERE for all the info and to join by June 7!* You are probably aware of a few things…1) Summer is right around the corner, and pools are opening left and
With Spring in the air and Summer around the corner, it seems like everything is turning a new leaf this time of year. As we all probably know all too well, embracing change can be hard (as I rant about HERE). To help us stay Focused in ’14 this year, I have decided to make
For those of you following along with Focus on Fitness Month, you all know (and are lamenting) the challenge for this week…NO SUGAR WEEK. It’s known among friends and family that I’m a sugar addict. In fact, at church my friends all fight to sit near me because they know I have several bags of
I know I’m a few days late on this because I just got back from vacation last night, but I wanted to pop in quickly to remind you of this week’s Focus on Fitness challenge. If you’ve been following along on the calendar, you know that this is WATER ONLY WEEK! For 7 days straight, challenge
