pantry storage and organization

Before we started our spending freeze, I knew I needed to take stock of everything we had and meal plan! Since we have quite a crew to feed now, I thought I would share some super quick tips on how we try to save time and money on food and meal prep…

Today’s post is written by Gabe

We are hoping to break down the process of our fireplace design to answer any questions you may have if you want to give this a try in your own home! When looking into revamping a fireplace surround, it is really important to research, and make sure you check out both national fire code and local fire code before you begin! We consulted multiple fireplace/chimney companies in the area, and spoke with a member of our local fire department just to make sure we were on track. Below is the process, materials, and total cost!


January Spending Freeze!

January 7, 2020

Happy New Year! We have been unplugged since Christmas to allow time for a good reset! I don’t tend to do a word of the year, resolutions, or a list of goals in January. However, I do feel the urge to de-clutter and organize my life in every area! Anyone else? Gabe and I sat down to think through what we want to continue to share with you readers this year. I always appreciate concrete resources! So we will be sending out a series of helpful tools in life, family, and home categories. If you missed, here is our Life Projection Plan printable.

We have more on organization coming soon, but decided to start our year with a SPENDING FREEZE! Have you tried one before? This is a really great challenge for getting in the right headspace to save towards a goal. I created a basic outline download you can print to have as a visual guide!

Added a new face to our annual front door pic!

I am still adding decor around our home as this year I had to embrace the concept of a slow advent. We did get a few rooms prepared to share our annual Christmas time home tour though! Come on in!


The result of our Mattress Search!

December 10, 2019

The last time we bought a mattress was right before Gabe and I got married….which was over 10 years ago. Needless to say, we were overdue for a new one since it was well worn and sinking fast. Both of us were waking up with achy backs, so we started to research best options for a new mattress. There are SO many on the market that we didn’t know where to begin. After reading about the engineering and science behind Current Mattress, we were very intrigued. We’re so excited to partner with them and share what we discovered about the connection with mattresses and how we wake up feeling each day!

Since we only bring out these books in December, it’s like pouring through old familiar friends. My kids will spend hours looking through these, and I thought it would be helpful to list out some favorites!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
