The Great Toy Decluttering #DonateStuffCreateJobs

Is There a Time When Ice Cream Doesn’t Hit the Spot? #seizingfamilytime

We’re a family of 5. Always flying in different directions. To work, Cub Scouts, soccer, school events, swimming, volleyball, and more.

I met up with two mom friends for coffee a few weeks ago. We had planned to see each other in May, but end-of-the-school mayhem and madness put a dampener on our plans. We could not find a time when we were all free. Then summer rolled in with swim team, home building projects,...

Do You Have What It Takes To Be a #PersonalShopper?

Sponsored: This is a sponsored post. I am a Sears/Shop Your Way blogger, though all opinions are my own. I’m a pack rat. A hoarder. I’m content to let stuff pile up. Tables, chairs, and my basement storage room are stacked with papers, boxes, and bags of stuff. Boxes and boxes of stuff line...

Talking To Your Kids About How They Act Online #digifam

When I’m not online, I’m in the car driving kids from sports practice to Cub Scouts to swimming before heading back home....
