Decluttering Your Life With 13 Easy Tips

Decluttering Your Life With 13 Easy Tips


Decluttering your life?  Seems as though lots of folks are thinking about decluttering these days.  But in the context of organizing a life’s-worth-of-stuff in your senior years, ‘curating’ would also be a totally applicable word to use wouldn’t it?  It’s a great word, eh?  It makes me think of museums with huge collections of artifacts and symbols of past lives.   Shelves of things collected, all gathering dust where they lie.   Colours gradually losing their brightness  because of that silken, powdery grey shroud.  Gosh, sounds like my place before I’ve gotten around to the annual ‘dust-fest’.

The Blogging Routine for Beginner Bloggers!

Blogging Routine for beginners is the system that makes it easier for beginner bloggers

This will be my 32nd post on this blog which I started about a year ago.  Massive learning curve!  As I’ve been doing all the research and reading, the one thing that has eluded me is any kind of a blogging routine.  Haphazard, flying by the seat of my pants, hit or miss….all phrases that describe my process – in the beginning.

Amazing Value in a Vegan Belt, 3 Reasons Its Better Than Leather

Amazing value in a vegan belt, strong, good looking,

A couple or three years ago, my husband started mentioning how ratty his belt was starting to look.  He’d had it for enough years that he could say he got his money’s worth.  Naturally I noticed and after hearing it a couple times I was starting to feel good because somebody’s birthday was coming up you know!   And the answer to that age old question, “what can I get him?” had just presented itself!  It was time for the old to go and a new vegan belt take to it’s place!

Do You Have Trouble Accepting Gifts? 11 Reasons Why…

Why You Have Trouble Accepting Gifts: when we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed maya angelou

I decided to write this post for the sake of all of you who have trouble accepting gifts.  Just on the face of it, that seems like kind of a ‘non-problem’ doesn’t it?  

Yesterday though, as I began researching this project, which necessitated reading a few other posts about the psychology of gift giving and receiving, I was amazed to notice how triggered I was about a lot of the things that I was reading.  Half the battle is knowing what you’re dealing with.  So let’s work our way through some of them and see where we come out shall we?

The Healthy Easy Lunch Idea You Need Now!

illustrations of cooking utensils, Recipes For Success!

I’ve always loved a healthy easy lunch idea because I’ve got so many other things on the go.   I don’t want ‘fuss’ at lunch.  Who’s got time for that right?  The dog needs walking, I need walking, there’s laundry, coffee later with a friend, picking someone up for a trip to the doctor!  Let’s face it, there are a million and one obligations that get in the way of intensive lunch prep.  So what do you do?  You look for tasty and supremely easy ideas for a bite to eat at lunch time.

Building a Wardrobe is Easy! Free Checklist Here!

Building a Wardrobe is easy when you get your free checklist


I’m probably the last person that you’d expect to write about building a wardrobe, on a budget or otherwise.  It’s not that I don’t wear clothes obviously, but I’ve just never been too interested in the whole shopping process.  So the possibility that I may have wasted a lot of money by following my non-shopping method is a given.

But about three years ago, I went through a major purge of my closet.  It was pretty obvious that I hadn’t been following any guidelines for building a wardrobe.  All I can say is, “Oh my goodness, ‘if only I’d known…”! Continue Reading →

Find a Hobby: 5 Important Reasons to Do It Now

Find a Hobby: 5 Important Reasons to do it now.

When my kids were young, I had to find a hobby time in the nooks and crannies of my day to day routine.  It was incredibly frustrating!   Do you remember that?

In my case,  I’d have my easel sitting at one end of the kitchen.  That way at least I could see my latest painting and think about the changes that I was going to make if I could ever get to it.  Some days, I’d manage to carve out an hour to just play with my paint and brushes.  But it seemed like mostly the kids needed to be picked up from school or it was time to make supper or a thousand other must-do’s that were screaming for their share of my time.  So very often, the painting just sat there and hobby time had to wait for another time.

GDPR Compliance Made Easy!

But I Just Want to Write on a caution sign.

Are you a blogger who’s beginning to get night sweats just thinking about GDPR compliance (otherwise known as General Data Protection Regulation)?  I totally feel your pain!  Having only started setting up my blog about a year ago,  I’ve been working on it for a while.  Before that, my computer expertise basically amounted to reading entertaining posts, following Huffington Post for my daily dose of news and saving pretty pictures on Pinterest.  But then I got the blogging bug.
