Planning for a Peaceful Christmas

Did you know that Christmas is just 60 days away?

Many of us have visions of a peaceful, holy season spent with family & friends.

Too often, it turns into a hectic mess of chaos and you are left feeling empty and exhausted.

Several bloggers want to help you start planning your holiday now to avoid all of that last minute busy-ness!

Life As Mom has you Planning for a Simpler Season.

12 bloggers are joining together for the 12 Ways of Christmas.

Sheri Graham brings you Homemade for the Holidays.

Sew Mama Sew has a creative Holiday Sew-Along.

We had a Joy-filled Christmas last year with our December Advent Countdown Box. It was a last-minute idea and not as organized as I would like. I will be fine-tuning it for this year and sharing it here with you in November!

All Tricks, No Treats

As you have probably figured out, my computer is still on the fritz.

I hijacked borrowed my daughters netbook and hope to peck out a few posts this week. (Have you used one of these? Its weensy!)

The Upside: the part we think we need to repair my laptop is cheap.

The Downside: most of my Internet Goodies are on the laptop.

I might be able to get a few lists out on the toy computer netbook, but it is slower & might just drive me batty!  ~^^~

Hopefully Ill be back soon!

{31 Days} Interrupted

Did everyone have a great weekend? We had a cold front move in today and it finally feels like Fall in Texas!!

My laptop decided to go ba-zonkers a few days ago, but thankfully hubby straightened it out.

{Days 15-17} are just going to have to sit empty for the time being.

Be back soon with {Day 18}!

{31 Days} Fun & Funky Nails

I spent the evening transforming little girl nails into jack o lanterns, candy corn & spooky eyes for our trip to the pumpkin patch tomorrow.

Have fun with these fun & funky ideas!

{Some of these sites are inappropriate (IMO), so click through the pics at your own risk. I save nail ideas on Pinterest for a handy visual reference - all of these ideas (& many more!) were found there.}

{31 Days} Thanksgiving Planners

I know it is not even Halloween yet, so why a Thanksgiving planner?

If you already  have a plan in place, it is easy to take advantage of sales and stock up a little at a time (its less painful that way :) ).

You would be surprised at how many generic Fall items you can find in the after-Halloween clearance sales!

{31 Days} Homeschool for Free

I am going to call this  {Day 12 & a half}. Yesterday just got away from me!

How about an Internet (oldie)(but) Goodie from my archives since I am playing catch-up!

I have a collection of  links to FREE curriculum.

Now these aren’t crafts, or random worksheets, or practice drills.

Nope, they are complete lesson plans or workbooks.

I would guesstimate that at least half of our subjects this year are freebies.

{My Homeschool for Free binder link is always available in the first column to the right.}

{31 Days} Grocery Shopping Helper

I came across a very helpful site today called Food on the Table.

It combines a menu plan with your local store sales and creates a customized grocery list. For free!!

Here is how it works:

  • Create an account.
  • Choose a local grocery store from the list.
  • Select your food preferences (low-carb, kid friendly, Italian, etc).
  • You will then be given a list of meats – ones that are on sale that week & also regular price- choose the ones you like. (Or do like I did & also choose stuff you have on hand so it will give you recipes for it.)
  • The website will give you a bunch of recipes based on all of your choices. (You can narrow the recipes by Cheap, Quick, Healthy, or Simple) Choose the ones you want included in your meal plan.
  • Once you have picked your recipes, you will be given a grocery shopping list that you can print out or add to your phone as an app.

Making a menu plan based on weekly sales is a great way to save money as food prices climb higher each week. Combine Food on the Table with the Coupon Mom database and save even more!
