Only a few more weeks until the kids go back to school. We’ve had a lot of fun this summer, but we’re all looking forward to the start of a new school year.
There’s something about the feeling of a fresh start to get you thinking, you know?
I’ve been stumbling across some great posts lately, and I wanted to share a few with you. I hope they inspire you and make you think. Have a great week!
We’ve had a series of things we’ve wanted to do around our house, and there’s always a tiny part of me that says, “Oh, I’ll just be like everyone else and we’ll borrow the money.” And then I am reminded of why that it is a horrible idea when I read posts like Going Into Debt Gives Away Your Power at Consumerism Commentary. Always grateful for these kind of reminders!

I have struggled with my weight for the last few years as a stay-at-home mom. So I could really relate to The Last 10 Pounds at Mama’s Losin’ It. I think I’ve gained and lost my last 10 pounds about 5 times in as many years.
I love it that people are always figuring out how to do things at home for a fraction of the price of buying things in stores. So I was fascinated when One Good Thing by Jillee shared how to make your own laundry color catchers.
We’ve had our share of zucchini around here, and I thought I’d seen most of the ideas for using it up. That is, until I read Reader Tip: Another Great Use for Zucchini at Money Saving Mom.
Hope you have a great week!
