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.

There IS something wrong with Snow White!

Okay, so I don't know exactly what kind of mental psychosis poor Snow White was suffering from, but any woman who happily cleaned up after 7 sloppy men - and whistled while she did it? Now there's someone just not right in the head! ;)

For those of us who aren't so cheerful about the chores, there are other things we can do to help keep our homes clean. First and foremost, decluttering is essential. The more stuff you have, the more stuff you have to clean. And a lot of it - you probably don't use enough to miss it if you got rid of it. I'm not saying you need to live a Spartan existence, but if you own anything that serves its main purpose as "Dust Collector", then it's probably time to ditch it. When you've gotten rid of a lot of the extra junk, cleaning what's left becomes all the more easier. And that's the important thing, because while if you really push yourself and your family, you can get your house sparkling clean from top to bottom, the problem becomes maintaining that cleanliness on a day to day basis.

THIS EBOOK has some hints and tips at getting and keeping your home clean and organized. It was written for people who need real help getting their homes in order, and the author maintains a non-judgmental tone through-out, but it can also help get anyone motivated when needed, even those Snow Whites among us.

Thanks for sharing this, I really appreciate it. It is very much my current struggle - trying to get a hold of my home while dealing with my health & trying to find balance. I don't have it all together yet.
