A Year in Review: Blog Style

Since it's the last day of 2009, I thought I would recap the year...blog style. I am posting the first sentence of the first post of each month. Some posts are just deal posts...some are a little more than that, but it will give you a good sampling of what life has been like here at Simplified Saving.

January

Every year as December comes to an end, I start taking inventory of my life and all the areas I want to improve in.

Not only is this my first post of the year, it's also the first post of my blog!

February

I love eBay.

I love selling on eBay and buying on eBay. Both are helpful when you're trying to get out of debt. This post was a link to a free copy of The Stay at Home Mom's Guide to Successful eBay Selling.

March

I totally enjoyed my weekend of mall freebies!

I scored a ton of free stuff that weekend...although this post is actually about a free tank top from Aeropostale that was available the following week. My daughter still regularly wears that free tank top!

April

Today is April 1st and if you're like me, you have tons of coupons that expired on March 31, 2009.

This post is about Coupons for Troops, a program that provides expired and non-expired coupons to military families stationed overseas.

May

This month's Free Download from Christian Audio is Foxe's Book of Martyrs.

Each month, ChristianAudio.com offers a free download of an audiobook. There have been some phenomenal ones this year!

June

Tonight is Free Root Beer Float night at Sonic from 8 pm to close.

July

So it is currently 2:23 and I am awake and anxiously awaiting the refreshing of the Old Navy Weekly Site.

I'm pretty sure that was the first and last time I stayed up for that. Although the Old Navy Weekly site has awesome coupons, it's not worth losing sleep over.

August

I can't believe my time in New Hampshire is coming to an end.

Although we spent our entire summer at our cottage in New Hampshire, this isn't a post waxing eloquent about our wonderful time with friends and family. It's actually a Menu Planning post about using what you have in your pantry.

September

I love Coach purses and shoes!

That pretty much sums things up. Surprisingly enough, this isn't a lengthy post on my love of fabulous shoes and handbags, it's actually a link to a printable coupon for the Coach Factory Store.

October

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Redefining Beautiful by Jenna Lucado.

November

Join Beth Moore every Monday for a free online Bible study!

December

I talk a lot about my husband and kids, but I've never really told you much about them.

This post is the beginning in a series of posts (which still need to be written and posted) about how my family came to be.


I hope you've enjoyed a quick look at my year. I'm excited about what 2010 holds. Thanks so much for being a part of this journey!

A Little Poem to Brighten Your Wednesday

Twas The Month After Christmas

Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.


The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.


When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).


I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,


The pies and the pastries, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."


As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt---


I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"


So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip


Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.


I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.


I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.


I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore---
But isn't that what January is for?


Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

The Bible in 90 Days: I Can't Wait to Begin

Bible in 90 Days

The Bible in 90 Days Challenge (hosted by Mom's Toolbox) is beginning in only 4 days. When I read Amy's post, I knew I wanted to be involved. I'm thrilled to be joining a great group of bloggers in digging into God's Word!

As I've thought about the time commitment and the already hectic pace of my life, I have come up with a plan. I will get out of bed 30 minutes earlier each day in order to start my day off right. I know there will be days when I won't finish it all in one setting and where I will have to read in bits and pieces throughout the day, but I know that the time I invest will be worth it. I was really excited to discover that Amazon offers The Bible in 90 Days for Kindle. This will make it easier to accomplish my goal...especially while I'm traveling.

I hope you'll prayerfully consider joining us! To sign up, visit Mom's Toolbox (and please leave a comment here as well). Also, if you're on Twitter, look for the #B90Days hashtag.

Making the Most of After Christmas Sales

If you've been out and about today, you've most likely seen the throngs of shoppers gathered round marked down Christmas items. For some of you this may seem like a ridiculous waste of time, however, I'd like to give you a few ideas that will help you make the most of these sales.

  • Christmas Candy - Now is the time to snag candy for a fraction of the price. Inexpensive bags of chocolate, chocolate bars, and chocolate Santas can be used in place of chocolate chips for baking. Also, I try to stock up on Hershey's Kisses to be used for Valentines and St. Patricks day. I use red and gold kisses for Valentines day and I use green kisses for St. Patricks day. It sure beats paying full price in February!
  • Wrapping Paper - Christmas wrapping paper isn't just for Christmas! You can find solid and foiled red, gold, silver, green, and white paper that can be used throughout the year. Also, look for pastel colored paper with snowflakes to be used on gifts given during the wintry months.
  • Gift Sets - I love holiday gift sets. Many of these get marked down to a fraction of the price because the packaging is Chistmas-y. I've often purchased giftsets made up of lotions and body washes at 50-80% off just because of the wrapping. What's even better is that these gift sets can be dismantled and the individual bottles of lotions can be put in other gifts throughout the year. I often turn these gift sets into birthday gifts or thinking of you gifts!
  • Baking supplies and cookware - After Christmas is a great time to purchase cookware and baking supplies. I found multiple sets of pots and pans marked at 50% off at Wal-Mart this morning and I also found nice cookie sheets. I'm not sure why they choose to mark so many of these items down in their "holiday" section, but I definitely won't complain. If you need pots and pans, waffle irons, tea kettles, etc., make sure to take a look at the holiday markdowns.
  • Christmas decorations and lights - Most of my Christmas decorations and lights have been purchased after Christmas. Each year, I try to add a few piece ornaments to my collection. I love that I can buy 3 or 4 ornaments for the price I would usually pay for 1. This is also a great time to buy an artificial tree to use next year. Also, if you are planning a wedding or party in which you may want to use white lights, stock up now. You'll be able to find them and the price on them will be unbeatable!
  • Candles - I love candles! I love the way they make my house smell and the ambiance they create. Candles are often included in the post Christmas sales...and not just the red and green ones. I was amazed to find so many white candles in a variety of scents marked down to a fraction of their costs!
I hope this will give you a few ideas to help make the most of after Christmas sales. Please remember that it's never a good deal if you don't have the money to pay for it. It's easy to get caught up in the thrill of a bargain, but it's not worth the stress that it brings when you realize you have no money and no place to store all your "bargains". With that disclaimer out of the way, I'm heading to the mall! Have a great day!

Why I'm Reading The Bible in 90 Days

I'm busy. I'm tired. I have a chronic illness. I work outside our home. I work inside our home. My kids need help with homework. We need to eat dinner together as a family. I want to spend time talking with my husband. I want to spend time laughing with my kids. I really should be exercising. I have commitments at the church. I need to post to my blog. Just typing these things makes me want to curl up in bed and take a nap. However, I know that the most important thing I can do is to spend time in the Word of God.

Unfortunately, in my busyness, God's Word doesn't always take priority. That is why I have committed along with many other lovely bloggers to read through the Bible in 90 days. Beginning on January 1st and continuing through March 31st, I will be reading through the entire Bible. I am excited to make this commitment and to see how God will work during this time! I hope you will consider joining me. If you're planning on participating, please leave me a comment or send me an email.

Top Ten Tuesday: New Year's Resolutions

Photobucket
It's Top Ten Tuesday over at OhAmanda (and if you don't read her blog already, you really need to. And just a little FYI, she's a Disney Mom, which I totally want to be when I grow up). Ok...now on to the important things (not that OhAmanda and being a Disney Mom aren't important, but really, this is my blog and today I've decided to post about what I want).

I know it's not even Christmas yet, but I've been thinking about my New Year's Resolutions quite a bit lately and this is the year that I am going to accomplish them. I've tried to make these goals all SMART...Specific, Measurable Attainable, Realistic, and Timely, so here they are (in no particular order)

1. Lose weight (average at least one pound/week for the year)
2. Exercise at least 10,950 minutes
3. Stick to our budget...every single month!
4. Track all of our income and spending.
5. Read through the entire Bible.
6. Take a trip with the kids to Disney World or Disney Land
7. Post at least 5 times/week on my blog
8. Try 2 new recipes per month
9. Read 1 book or listen to 1 audiobook each week.
10. Take a creative writing or public speaking class.

{BONUS} I'd like to get more organized too, but I don't have a good plan for that yet...

Giving Up On My Idea of a Perfect Christmas


I had such high hopes for my Christmas this year...and it started with my tree.

Last year I purchased fun and funky ornaments on sale after Christmas. I immediately put them on the tree and they were perfect. It didn't even bother me that it was after Christmas. I still enjoyed those ornaments on that tree.

In March of this year our small town experienced a flood.
Yep, that's our house and the street we live on!

We lost most of the belongings we had in our basement, including our pre-lit Christmas tree. My parents graciously gave us a beautiful tree they had so we wouldn't be without a tree.

On November 1st, we put up our new tree. I wanted to be able to stretch out my perfect Christmas for two months. Unfortunately, our new tree wasn't pre-lit (and we had no lights), so we just left it sitting there undecorated. By November 10th, I had purchased lights and we had a wonderful time decorating our tree...and it looked great. I wish I had taken a picture... I even wrapped tons of presents and put them under the tree.

Although the tree looked great, the rest of my house wasn't looking so impressive. We live in a fixer-upper that still needs a lot of fixin-up. We'd love to get the inside painted, but unfortunately that meant we needed to get the drywall repaired. We scheduled the drywall repair people to come the Monday after Thanksgiving. He quoted that he would only need"8-10" hours of work to get the job done.

So, we undecorated the tree and put most of the presents in the upstairs closet. We moved the tree to a different spot so that it was out of the way of the drywall workers and I told the family we could decorate as soon as the drywall guys finished up.
Look at the beautifully wrapped gifts under the tarp!

Unfortunately, that 8-10 hours that he quoted us is still going on. There have been lots of days they've been unable to come for one reason or another. They've been sick or busy with other jobs. Plus, my hubby was out of town for a few days so they couldn't come then. And the days they are here, they leave more dust than you could possibly imagine. With one week til Christmas, my home looks like this!

This isn't the ideal situation at Christmas time. I want a warm, welcoming home. I want my family to be surrounded by beautiful things, not tarps and drywall dust.

I'm sure that's what Mary wanted on that very first Christmas too. I'm sure that bringing her baby into the world in a dirty cold stable wasn't the ideal situation for her. I'm sure she envisioned things differently. She probably imagined a perfect Christmas. Christ coming into the world in a comfortable room surrounded by beautiful things. Instead, the Messiah was born in a dirty smelly animal enclosure.

And although Christ was born in a dirty place, I don't want him to live in a dirty place.

I want my home to be a place where Jesus would feel welcomed. I want Him to see that my life is not overwhelmed by busyness and the unimportant. I want a heart that is overflowing with love. I want the dirt in me to be scrubbed away by my repentant attitude and the cleansing blood of Jesus. I want the words that flow from my lips to be words seasoned with grace and hope.

I want to remember that the only perfect Christmas was in a stable when Emmanuel came to dwell with us...in us. God with us...Emmanuel...the perfect Christmas!

Join Mary and those who are "Giving Up On a Perfect Christmas" over at Giving Up On Perfect.

This post is linked to Finer Things Friday because there is nothing finer than Emmanuel...God with Us and Photo Story Friday.

Free Lip Product from Bath & Body Works

I was so excited today when I opened my inbox to find a new coupon from Bath & Body Works.

FREE Lip Item (up to $8) with ANY purchase

This is one of my favorite coupons because I love their lip products and it works with any purchase...even on clearance and inexpensive items. If you don't have anything particular in mind, try the foaming hand soap for only $3, the shea infused socks for only $5, or look for a small hand sanitizer or nail file for only a buck or two!

I used my coupon today and purchased a pair of their super cozy socks with shea butter* for only $5. The socks and lip gloss will be a great addition to one of my daughters' Christmas stocking.

*These Bath & Body works shea infused socks are my all time favorite cozy socks! A lip gloss and a pair of these socks for only $5 is a steal and would make a great gift for any woman on your list!
