Today’s guest post is from Brynn of The Mama on the Rocks. She shares her family’s personal reasons for choosing the RV life and how they make it work for them.
Creating a minimalist home is truly a dream come true for me and my family. We love being surrounded only by things that bring us joy. But, don’t be fooled, the stress-free life with less, didn’t happen overnight.
Many posts will tell you that you can create a minimalist, clutter free home in a weekend. While this is an appealing idea, creating a quality, peaceful space isn’t quite that simple.
My biggest suggestion, especially if you have a lot of clutter to work through, is to take it one room at a time. Trying to run through an entire house in a few short days will probably leave you with a big mess and a defeated attitude. In this post I’m going to walk you through how to start minimalist living by declutter your home one room at a time.
I have seen huge success from my blog in a short amount of time and all it took was getting seriously organized when it came to scheduling my time and social shares. If you are hoping to get organized in your day to day life, I highly recommend the Simplify + Planner and you can read my full review on it here: Organize Your Life for the New Year. If you want to know what it takes to get seriously organized when it comes to your blog’s content, then read on. This post has all the best things to consider when creating your blog as well as how to organize your blogging schedule itself.
When you are in a relationship, you probably know how crucial it is to take the time to be with just one another. There are so many things that can get in our way; jobs, family, friends, commitments. It is not easy juggling life and still giving your significant other undivided attention. It’s not easy, but it is absolutely crucial to keeping a relationship or marriage on the right track. It’s great to take time together at home (if you live together) but getting away can really make a huge difference in allowing you to connect. If you are are raising a family, like I am, you know just how easy it is to get distracted or tired when you try to do a date night by staying in. Things can quickly fall into routine and that can really put a big damper on things. But, how do you plan a night (or even a vacation) away without totally breaking the bank? Justifying a hotel stay or a fancy restaurant is hard when you’ve got a broken washing machine, daycare and only one income. Yes, yes it is. First of all, you are not investing in food or a hotel, you are investing in one another and there is nothing more important to the foundation of a marriage or relationship than that. So let’s talk about how to stick to your budget and work at your relationship. Basically, let me show you how to be a cheap date without staying home.
If you are trying to save money, think smaller and still have a full functioning kitchen that you can use, I’ve got it all for you. I spend most of my day in the kitchen. Meal prepping is a must-do in our house and it’s very rare for me not to make an entire meal from scratch. Not only am I a big cook, but I work from home and the kids are homeschooled. This means I need a kitchen with all the essentials that doesn’t take up a ton of space or dwindle our family’s budget. So, I decided to share all the little ways I have made a smaller, less expensive kitchen work for me. Not only that but, I aim to keep things more environmentally friendly as well. Here are some of my personal choices for a frugal kitchen makeover.
