Frugal Friday: Repurposed Water Jugs

Frugal Friday: Repurposed Water Jugs

We Americans buy containers to hold stuff in the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room, bedrooms, and cars. We even have containers to hold our containers! And the stuff doesn’t come cheap. The container and organizing business is a huge multi-BILLION-dollar industry! I love being organized, but I do not love purchasing all the little ...

Bringing Faith and Money into Harmony

Bringing Faith and Money into Harmony

In both my personal life and my professional life, women have no qualms about sharing lists with me. The first list they share is of all the things they hope and dream and wish for themselves and their families. They want more and they want better. The second list they share is why they cannot ...

Memorial Day Sneaks Up on Me

Memorial Day Sneaks Up on Me

I’ve had such an “off” week. I couldn’t figure out what was going on, why I felt so tired, and WHY THE HECK I kept eating and eating and eating and EATING! Was I scared about entering a new phase of this business? Did I need to reflect on the history of my family of ...

Frugal Friday: Add water to soap

Frugal Friday: Add water to soap

To cut costs on soap refills by 50% to 66% : ~ Take your emptied soap dispenser. ~ Fill 1/3 to 1/2 with soap. ~ Add water. ~ Shake. ~ You’ve got soap. One of the things I like about diluted hand soap is that you can start washing and scrubbing your hands before turning ...

After the “Honey Gold” Moment

After the “Honey Gold” Moment

My daughters, ages 2 and 3, are napping when the eldest of the two wakes up. Being a “good mom”, I drop my involvement in work matters to spend time with her. We cuddle, we giggle, and I teach her math by having her count my sit-ups and push-ups to 5 and then to 10. ...

Frugal Friday: Oatmeal Variety

Frugal Friday: Oatmeal Variety

A typical weekday breakfast at our house is oatmeal. I boil oats, and add cinnamon, diced apples, and raisins. Other times, I add cinnamon and diced peaches. OR I add cinnamon and whatever berry I have. (Yes, always cinnamon. It’s good for your blood vessels: lowers cholesterol and blood sugar!) Oatmeal is so much cheaper ...

Taxes Eve Week

Taxes Eve Week

Guess what I’m doing right now. No, not that. Taxes. Yep, taxes. Actually, I’m not quite doing my taxes, I’m just in the phase of getting information organized for my accountant who will then be burning the midnight oil doing my taxes and those of my fellow procrastinators. “But Adhis, it’s the week before they ...

Frugal Friday: Check Hotel Amenities

Frugal Friday: Check Hotel Amenities

I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels for conventions and trainings. Some establishments ranked as there-may-be-a-dead-body-under-the-bed cheap and others were ooh-la-la luxurious, but it was last Spring when I experienced the perfect hotel for me when a condo is not an option. The only thing missing was my sweetheart who had stayed home to care ...

It’s In There!

It’s In There!

I’ve been getting some interesting comments from friends and women I meet, like what I do is exclusive to me and that I live an unusual life. Here is the truth: Every woman has a message she was sent on this earth to deliver. EVERY WOMAN. Like it or not, you’ve got a mission. You ...
