Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Hey there. . . gosh the coffee tastes good this morning. After a week of low 90s, things cooled down a little here in Northern Idaho so the furnace is on and my coffee is hitting the spot! How is your morning going?

There isn’t much going on here. I have a pile of laundry that is ridiculous. I planned to go to the laundromat yesterday afternoon but ended up working on logistics for the house we’re purchasing. Hoping the house closes in a little over a week – really praying it closes without a hitch before school starts, it would make our lives much easier to be moved in beforehand, even if only a few days. I can’t wait friends. . .can’t wait to start sharing recipes again, to share about refurnishing a house on a budget (remember we sold everything before took off for our travels?), raising chickens, gardening and more. Can’t wait to take you along with me as we enter into this chapter of our lives. You ready!!?

Headed-to-Beach

Good morning! How was your weekend?! I hope it went well. We didn’t go anywhere. Just hung around the trailer and spent all day yesterday at the nearby lake. It was 90 degrees with a perfect breeze – I read a book (a real live, not an e-book, novel – a rare treat for me!). The kids played in the lake and even went fishing (and they caught fish!). It was great family time after what felt like a busy week.

Chicken-Santa-Fe-Recipe-Tortilla

On Saturday I made Santa Fe chicken in my Instant Pot. I make it the same way I would in my slow cooker but instead put it on the meat/protein setting and it’s done cooking in just a couple hours. We served it rice on Saturday night and in tortillas (taco style) on Sunday. Easy, inexpensive, one-pot meal that makes great leftovers!

Today I hope to get lots of blogging done (so many deals happening today) and I have a stack of laundry that is crazy – so a trip to the laundromat is in order – sooner than later. What are your plans today?

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! I’m up extra early this morning. I really need to start transitioning back to the school schedule – including getting the kids to bed by 8ish every night so we all don’t meltdown when school starts in two weeks. I love getting up and working early but got out of the habit on the road because it was so difficult to work without waking everyone up in our small 180-foot home on wheels. Thankfully they are still sleeping this morning, I have a big ole cup of hot coffee and I’m excited to get some deals posted for you this morning!

So yesterday. . .I registered my kids for school here in Coeur d’Alene (Idaho). I don’t know who is more excited – them or me!?! Seems like it’s going to be a great school for transitioning back to reality. Kids are excited to make new friends, I’m excited for some structure and routine and I think we’re all looking forward to life being a bit normal and predictable for awhile, you know!?! I’ve never had BOTH kids in school at the same time (my daughter was in preschool the year before we hit the road) so I’m excited to volunteer in their classrooms, be able to work from home more reliably, have a kitchen to start posting recipes again – and lots of other exciting stuff in the fall – for both this site and our family. You are the best readers I could ask for – so patient with me this last year as we tackled this dream of travel and I look forward to us all growing together this fall as we work to save money and live frugally (but also in a way that fulfills us)!

School-clothes-shopping-August-18

Good morning! How are you today? Yesterday I took the kids school clothes shopping. We always go to Goodwill and Value Village first, then we get things like shoes, socks, underwear and harder to find items at the mall. If you’ve been following my site for any length of time you know I love thrifting and we find some amazing deals at thrift shops. Yesterday was no different! Here are a few of the items we got yesterday:

  • Gap striped sweater $2.99 (half-price)
  • J Crew polka dot cardigan $1.99 (half-price)
  • H&M jeans $3.99
  • Pure Stuff woven plaid button-up shirt $1.99 (half-price) – Nordstrom brand!
  • Striped long sleeve shirt $0.99
  • Levi Strauss Signature Slim Jeans $4.99
  • Gap Khakis $3.99 – still have crease down the front of the legs, look brand new!
  • Abercrombie button up long sleeve shirt $2.99
  • Under Armour sweatshirt $5.99, looks brand new!
  • H&M woven poncho with big buttons $2.99 – so cute!
  • NEW Old Navy glitter, plaid top, with the TAG on still – $1.49 (half-price)
  • NEW Old Navy jeans, with the TAG on still – $1.99 (half-price)
  • Starwars LEGO mini-figure hoodie $5.99 – my son loved this one!

It wasn’t a special sale day, I didn’t have a coupon, I brought the kids and they look for the color tag on sale and pick out items they like. We got 13 items for about $43 plus tax. Can you imagine if we would have bought this all new at the mall?The Under Armour sweatshirt – alone is going for $45-49 online. The GAP khakis are $29.95 online.  My kids are 9 and 6 and they love the hunt of the thrift stores. Plus they usually get a toy or book each place we shop – all for a fraction of what we’d pay new. I love that I buy brand name clothing, that looks brand new AND it’s more environmentally sustainable than buying new, too.

I also found a matted art print, still in the plastic wrap, from one my favorite Alaskan artists – for $0.79! It will be perfect to frame for our new house.  Have you found any good deals at a thrift shop lately?

Good morning! I’m writing Rise and Shine today from Seattle, Washington. We are on our way home from Alaska and have a nearly four hour layover at SeaTac before flying to Spokane, Washington later this morning. Thankfully the kids slept on the first flight (which left Fairbanks at 12:40 a.m. PST) but we’ll see how the rest of the morning goes. We had a wonderful trip visiting my family in Alaska but I’m definitely ready to return to my own bed and routine.

Heather__TakeThatExit_com___takethatexit__•_Instagram_photos_and_videos

Good morning!  I just spent the weekend off the grid at my parent’s cabin near Delta Junction, Alaska. No electricity, running water, toilets, cell service, wifi – just being out in the trees with my family enjoying nature. It was wonderful. I spotted a bull moose (maybe two?), cow moose, Alaskan hare, grouse and owl. Lots of quality time with my mom, dad, sister, brother and brother-in-law. My kids love it out there – they went for four-wheeler rides, went fishing, saw moose and playing in the woods. I took lots of photos, see photos on our Instagram account here!  We fly back to Idaho tonight – it will be a long night, flying out of Alaska around midnight – then we’re back home!

Alaskan-Mittens-logo-550

As I’ve mentioned in previous editions of Rise and Shine I’m up in Alaska visiting family. One of the things I’m doing while I’m up here is I’m helping my mom get her handmade mittens online. My mom is an amazing seamstress, quilter, crafter. . .  she can make anything.

Wool-Mittens-Alaskan-Made

Well she’s been making these 100% wool mittens for the last four years – selling them to friends and family and at craft fairs. They are incredible mittens. Growing up in Alaska she knows a thing or two about warm weather clothing. 🙂 Since I’ve gotten to town I’ve made her a logo, we made her a photo box for photographing her mittens, I created an Etsy shop for her and I’m listing her mittens online. If you live somewhere chilly check out these mittens – every pair is a piece of art! I’ll be adding more inventory today and tomorrow, so check back if you are looking for a specific color or style. Oh, and she’s offering free shipping on all orders.

Smoking-Alaska-Salmon

Good morning! How are you doing today? We are taking it easy this morning after a busy few days. Lots of family time. We finished cold smoking some Copper River Salmon last night. My dad walked my son through the whole smoking process – from the brine to the smoker – it’s quite a process. The salmon skin and carcasses will be used for garden/lawn fertilizer, the salmon roe for fishing bait and the fillets of course will be eaten. Nothing goes to waste and my parents have been smoking salmon like this for years – I love that my kids are getting to see the process behind it.  Yesterday afternoon my sister and nephew joined us at the local fair which is walking distance from my parents house. You can see more photos on Instagram here.

I posted a bunch of Amazon deals last night – I’ve seen an uptick in school supply discounts, but the BEST price drops are only lasting a short time – so you need to be quick if you want to snag them.

I am having a wonderful time in Alaska with my family. Lots of quality family time and eating way too much Alaskan food – fresh Copper River salmon, halibut, king crab and fresh raspberries picked with our cousins. My mom is helping my daughter sew her very first quilt, my dad is teaching my son how to smoke salmon and we’re just all enjoying time together.

Yesterday I posted a lot of new online deals – lots of savings over on Amazon. Plus we shared the best school supply deals available in store this week.

We also shared a round-up of the best Costco – School Supply Deals including pencils, binders, notebooks, backpacks and more. Have you found a good deal at Costco lately?
