Forget Resolutions! Free 2019 Goals & Priorities Planner

Forget Resolutions! Free 2016 Goals and Priorities Planner

I’m a strong believer in making goals but statistics show that only 8% of people are successful in achieving their New Year’s Resolutions and that a whopping 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. On the other hand you are much more likely to be successful if you have written down specific, measurable goals that you regularly review. That doesn’t sound too difficult does it?

Expressions From Hallmark Now Available at Dollar Tree

I’m a card person – I love to give them and I love to receive them! Greeting cards seem to be getting more and more expensive all the time though and it’s hard to justify $6-$8 per card in the budget. That’s why I was super excited to find out that as of today, August 30th, Dollar Tree will be carrying Expressions From Hallmark for $1 each and Heartline a Hallmark company cards at 2 for $1. There are so many occasions and styles to choose from and I’m especially loving the character cards for kids’ birthdays and parties.

Free Christmas Gift & Holiday Planner!

Okay, some of you may be thinking it’s a little early in the year for this, but with my small budget and my large gift list it’s never too early to get started on holiday planning! Between my five kiddos, my parents, my best friend and gift exchange parties at work I have a lot of people to buy Christmas gifts for. That’s not even considering the neighbors, the mail lady, the kids’ teachers, and all the other people I can’t remember right now! If I don’t start thinking about this stuff early then my entire budget is blown for months. That’s why I REALLY need a Christmas Planner and I thought it’d be awesome to share these super holiday strategies with you.

10 Ways to Decorate a Pumpkin Without Carving It

10 Ways to Decorate a Pumpkin Without Carving It

I love Halloween but with small kids, taking out pumpkin guts and carving a pumpkin is messy and time consuming and I can never get the design to look quite the way I envisioned it in my head. So, we started looking for out of the box ways to decorate our pumpkins and over the years have used several on this list and have bookmarked the others to use in the years to come.

Inexpensive Halloween & Fall Decorations

Although my five kiddos are getting a little too old for trick or treating, they still really enjoy decorating the house and the yard for the season so we always hit our local Dollar Tree first to pick up all our Halloween and Fall Decor needs. Everything is always just $1 so you certainly can’t beat the prices, but they’ve also got lots of great stuff to choose from like these scarecrows and fall signs. I love the “Home Sweet Home” sign for the flower bed beside our front door and the hanging “Harvest” sign would look great nestled inside a wreath on the front door. Some of my favorite finds that I always hit Dollar Tree first to pick up are seasonal place mats like the leaf shaped ones above and craft items so the kids can make some of their own decorations.
