How I feel when I stay within my budget

YNABer (Or fun with budgeting, really!)

After my divorce, I decided to be better with my money. The ex and I were never very good savers and planning things very well financially. We tended to live paycheck to paycheck and when we wanted something, we never hesitated to charge it. When it came to the divorce being finalized, we both walked …

Pretty in pink and Oculus

I’ve not done a wants/obsession post for a couple of months, so thought I’d write about that today. A make-up line that I’m obsessed with is Urban Decay. I love so many of their eye-shadows and have more than a few to feed my obsession. However, today I’m going to focus on their lipstick and …

So, I bought a book. It’s supposed to teach this newbie how to crochet. We will have a new grandson in June. Let’s see if this Grammy can make a blanket for him before he’s born! Here’s to trying something new in 2018!

Planner Style

A year ago, I stumbled upon a little known world of planner people – specifically, women who buy planners and then decorate them with all kind of doo-dads and what-nots. I think most of us when we buy a planner, we think to ourselves that we are buying it in order to get more organized …
