. . . . and living a frugal life.
Here it is: Stay Home!
Yes, that is it - stay home. If you don't have a job outside of the home and you can stay home, do it.
Staying home means that you spend time on your craft. Yes, you stay home and organize, clean, bake, cook and plan, plan, plan. You have the time to hang laundry on the line and for that matter, make your own laundry soap and do the laundry. There is time for meal planning and not just thrown together meals but actual planned out meals.
Now before anyone thinks that I have lost my mind, I'm not talking about staying home 24/7. In the almost 3 years that I have been home I have been adding too many activities that are taking me away from home. It's getting a little out of hand and time to pull back. I knew it was getting bad when I wanted to sew a dress for Easter and I couldn't even find the time to begin. That was very frustrating.
I also want to research and experiment with some new frugal tips.
Time to get my priorities straight and time to get back to what I have enjoyed and that is being home and doing all the things that I do that helps us save money.
I've already begun - two loaves of whole wheat bread are in the oven. Ahhh - I love being home.
