I have been thinking a lot about how I want to do the blog in 2018. I do know for certain I want to do more & more personal posts…..that was always an ambition of mine for this website from the very beginning. My motto is all things “frugal fashion finances & fun.”

So this is the beginning of a tradition I want to work hard to maintain…..Fun Five (things) on Fridays. Things I did. Things I saw. Deals I got. OOTD. Anything for you.

So I hope you have some fun too! Here we go!


Easter weekend I visited 3 homes that are for sale (none of them are the right home for me!) (I’m confident the right one will come along!) & me & Red Wing visited my parents. I haven’t seen them since early January because we all were traveling & my parents were also ill for much of the winter. Sunday we attended church & visited Red Wing’s family. A pretty relaxing Easter weekend.


I want to share this Stella & Dot signing special that is going on now. If you are wanting a fun & flexible & fashionable job that you work during the hours that YOU want to work from home, this could be the opportunity for you. Just click on the picture to learn more & get started. This goes through 4/30.

A very easy & needed sale I got this week at CVS ends tomorrow. Hop on to stock up!

My favorite stockpile price for these is $2 per package, so this is a decent sale to begin a small learning trip on with only a coupon from this past week! & is a decent time to buy up if you need to replenish your established stockpile.
