Saving Money on a Home Pilates Reformer

Hubby and I hike the local mountains. But last Summer I ran into some physical issues that despite my activity were getting worse. Several old dance injuries had come back to haunt me. Muscles that had been injured decades ago were now, suddenly weak causing imbalance and stride problems.

A Thoughtful Valentines Day

The word for Valentines Day is thoughtfulness. You don’t have to spend a gazillion bucks make your special someone feel special.

So here are some frugal ideas!

For All Romantics:
- Instead of giving flowers, give a “live” plant they can plant in their garden.
- Deliver one long stemmed, red rose everyday to their office for a week. Labor intensive… but a great way to get your point across!

Sticking to Your Resolutions

About this time in January, most of us have had missteps in our News Years Resolutions. This year I stuck to mine, mostly cause I made them 4 months ago.

Last Summer I promised myself to eat better with less Sugar and Carbs. I also promised myself to get my body strong again.  This wasn’t about weight loss, cause I’m slim. It was about health.

The New Year always has me busy with both business and household projects. After getting my home and office re-organized for the new year, I’m once again reminded of the projects I need to start.

When to Hit the Malls

Big stores are closing and gloom & doom predictions of retail are rampant. Most of the media and experts believe that retail store closures are caused by more people shopping on the web instead of in–store

The Best Vacuum Ever

So my family considers me a clean freak. Personally, I think they use the term to get out of doing their fair share of household cleaning. This term came into use when back in 2000 we lived in an apartment with deep, cream long pile shag carpeting.  What a nightmare!

Holiday Decorating

I love Holiday decorating and entertaining. But, do to the heavy workload Fall brings, rarely get it all done or get to enjoy it. Feeling a bit deprived last year,  I made a plan to get ahead of the Holidays and keep the expense down.

The Problem with New Appliances

New is not usually better, in large appliances.

Back in 2009, after doing extensive research we purchase a refurbished 1980’s Maytag Washer and Dryer set. We purchased used do to the fact that old appliance models are more reliable and last longer.
