New-Roof-April-2015

Good morning! TGIF! I hope you’re having a great morning.  Yesterday I stayed home with a sick kiddo, while a team of roofers put a new roof on our home. The new roof looks amazing – especially compared to what we had before. The company we hired, United Roofing Solutions, did a fantastic job, worked fast and left our yard/driveway cleaner than when they started! This is just another step toward listing our house for sale. We want to make sure she’s ready for the next family who will make memories here. :) This weekend will be our last big push of yard work (weeding, mowing, trimming, bark, planting) and painting/cleaning the inside. Hope to have her listed by May 1st and I just hope that the process is as painless as it can be. What are your plans for this weekend?

Pink-Clouds-Sunset-April-21

Good morning! Welcome to Wednesday. How are you doing today? Did you see the sunset last night? This was my view from my room last night – what a sight! Happy Earth Day! Some days it’s just a matter of slowing down and seeing the beauty around us, right!? #nofilter

Yesterday I took a big load of items to the local thrift shop. Felt good to donate the items and it feels good to get the items out of my house! I did get a tax deductible receipt for my donations – don’t forget to do that if you’re donating items to a local place.

For dinner last night we had taco salads. I know you’re not surprised – we seem to have it at least once a week. I took some marked down ground turkey out of the freezer the night before – and cooked that up. To help stretch the meat, the last few times I’ve also sautéed sliced peppers, onions and mushrooms – with taco seasoning. It’s like making a batch of vegetarian fajita mix AND topping your taco meat with it – a taco/fajita salad. :) You get lots of a veggies, don’t use as much taco meat, and the liquid from the veggies almost serves like a dressing – it’s delightful and so simple. Fresh avocados and tomatoes top it off.  It also makes great leftovers. What’s for dinner at your place?

Garden-June22

Do you have plans for this weekend? I am *thinking* I might get around to planting my garden. Even though we plan to sell the house – I’d love to see some veggies growing in the back and I think it would be a great gift for the new family that will hopefully buy our house (soon after we list, in my perfect world). :) So I’m gearing up for that.

BIking-Barbecue-April-20-2015

Good morning! How is your day going so far? Last night was GORGEOUS here in the Pacific Northwest. Sunshine and warm temps made if feel like a mid-summer day. The kids, who were so patient this weekend during our garage sale, were eager to get out and ride their bikes.

I grilled up a bunch of veggies that I picked up last week from QFC on markdown – yes, they were still good! We had diced butternut squash, brussels sprouts (halved) and mushrooms – all grilled up and served with chicken sausage. It was inexpensive and hit the spot. The last few times I’ve roasted brussels sprouts in the oven the smell seemed to linger for a couple days – so I really prefer grilling them – I think it tastes better, too. We are out of bread and milk and bananas – and a lot of other staples so I’ll be headed to the grocery store today.

Garage-sale-clothing-2

Yesterday I shared another downsizing update – sharing the details of our EPIC garage sale this weekend. We made a whopping $3,280.88. It was crazy good and I’m so grateful! Garage sales are a lot of work, but they can be worth it – especially if you need to create an emergency fund or pay off some debt – downsizing can be a great way to earn extra cash!

Garage-Sale-Weekend

Good morning! My exhaustion level this weekend could not be described in words. I fell into bed by 8:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday AND Sunday night – after very LONG days running a garage sale every day this weekend. We could not have asked for more beautiful weather – SUNSHINE and warm temps – and we had a ton of traffic. It went as great as I could have expected and I’m grateful to have cleared our garage and earned a substantial chunk-a-change to help with our upcoming move and adventures. I’ll provide an official downsizing update later today – but it was an intense weekend. How was your weekend?

Olympia-weather-April-17

Do you have any fun plans this weekend? The weather here in the Pacific Northwest is supposed to be MAGNIFICENT! Please tell me if you plan to get outside and enjoy it! And if you live somewhere else in the country, I’d love to hear from you, too.

Last night for dinner we picked up a rotisserie chicken and had salads – fancy stuff. :) So easy! If you’re going to buy a convenience food I think rotisserie chickens might rank as one of the best in terms of offering a solid protein that can be used in a variety of meals, plus you can make chicken broth with the carcass! I prefer Costco’s rotisserie chickens – but sometimes it’s just easier to get one from the neighborhood grocery store. What’s your favorite recipe with rotisserie chickens?

Puffins-cereal-markdown

Yesterday I stopped into my neighborhood QFC and found two shopping carts FULL of marked down Barbara’s Puffins cereal – SCORE! Just $0.99 a box, no coupons needed. My son loves the original flavor and I picked up four boxes for the same price of one! I didn’t find much for other markdowns – a few bags of lettuce for $0.99 and a few yogurts, but it was slim pickins yesterday for markdowns – some days are like that!

For dinner last night we had leftover tacos – served on the lettuce I found at QFC – so taco salads! It seems like we eat a LOT of tacos and taco salads. I’m sort of tired of them and need to change things up. :) But it’s an easy meal, makes great leftovers, is healthy (we use lean meats like ground turkey, chicken breasts or moose) and it is frugal. What’s your go-to meal?

Garage-Sale-labels

Good morning! Hello sweet friend. Hope your coffee is hot and your morning going well. Last night we spent a few hours going through my daughter’s room – pricing toys for the garage sale this weekend.  For small toys – consider putting all similar toys in gallon (or 2-gallon) bags together. Then you can price them in small “lots” and don’t have quite the mess you’d have if everything was separate. For example, you’d get a few quarters for a few random My Little Ponies – but put five of them in a bag and put a couple dollars on it! Not only does it keep things better organized – but it’s more likely to sell grouped together.

Rise and Shine April 13 – Spring break is over! Downsizing update, Eggplant Parmesan recipe, lots of new Amazon deals


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! It’s Monday and our first day back into our normal routine after a week of conferences and then a week of Spring Break. THANK YOU for your patience these past two weeks – I know the deals weren’t up to snuff, but I was offline soaking up time with my family. We are back in the swing of things this morning, though, and ready to rock and roll. ;)

Grayland-State-Park-April-2015

The highlight from our Spring Break was a trip to Grayland State Park. What a gorgeous campground and just about 90 miles from our house. We camped two nights and the kids spent hours playing on the beach, flying kites, building forts, roasting marshmallows and playing with other kids in the campground – being spring break, there were lots of them! I actually didn’t have any cell phone reception (read: internet access) unless I was on the beach – so I didn’t actually blog for a couple days (gasp!). I ended up sending my Rise and Shines via text message to Annaliese and she held down the fort for me – it was a long overdue (unexpected) break! We slept well every night after all the fresh air and activity and it was good for our souls.

Project-Downsize-550

Yesterday I provided an update on our downsizing efforts. It was a two-week update and during that time I earned $715 by selling items around my house. This downsizing project is not for wimps – I’m clearing out a lot. Closets are starting to look starkly empty, I’m selling storage organizers – that previously stored STUFF, and my house is less cluttered than it’s been in years. This whole process has been eye-opening for me – the amount of stuff a family of four can collect when living in a 2,000 square foot house is actually embarrassing. Nearly everything I’ve sold I’m certain I bought on super sale (or acquired for free), but it’s not the “deal” that matters – it’s whether or not those items provide value and joy to your life. And I think many of us could say that we have items in our house not filling this need.

Goodwill-Trip-April-12-2015

Being so intentional about downsizing has kept me from hitting up the thrift shops as often. When I’m working so hard to simplify, going shopping for new treasures – no matter what they may be, doesn’t sound as appealing. :) But I know my kids do need summer clothes – so I stopped into Goodwill yesterday. I picked up two pairs of Under Armour shorts and a pair of Hannah Andersson swim trunks for under $10! I love finding such high-quality brands for as low as $1.99 an item!

Eggplant-Parmesan-Recipe

Eggplant is on sale this week at Fred Meyer (check your local Kroger store) and I love making this healthy version of Eggplant Parmesan – it’s baked and is actually a Weight Watchers recipe. The photo isn’t beautiful, but it’s a delicious recipe!

Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Thank you for all the feedback yesterday on grocery highlights - we hope to bring the highlights back. I apologize that while trying to simply things, I actually made them less user-friendly. I always love hearing from you if you find something not ideal. :)

Today I’m making up a batch of this Southwest Quinoa Salad. It’s one of my favorites – especially great for potlucks or gatherings. What’s on your menu plan this week?
