About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

The Fly Lady.

I have several friends who *swear* by this site, so I figured I'd give it a plug. If you're the type of person who has trouble keeping your household clean and organized, THE FLYLADY can help you.

To be perfectly honest, in perusing the site, I found it a bit too "boot camp" for my tastes, especially the concept of how you MUST put on your shoes every morning and wear them around the house all day. Uh, no. I am not ever going to walk on my carpet in the same shoes that I cross the gas station parking lot in and wear into a Wal-Mart bathroom. Not a chance.

Still, I like the zone concepts the FlyLady promotes. We do something quite similar in our house. And if you are truly living in what she calls CHAOS - "Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome" - then this site might prove to be a big blessing for you.

I think flylady makes a lot of sense ... if you can adapt her methods to your life.

For example, I DO now wear shoes in the house. But I can't 'boogie' as freely as she does.
