Living in a Coupon Cave

Tweet There was a very small window of my life where I was great about using coupons. My mom would show up at my house with a baggie filled with coupons for things like Suave shampoo and Pampers Pull-Ups, and I would proudly march into Target or Walmart armed with my little paper arsenal. My […]

Resourceful Technology – Mozy for Moms

Tweet Where are the pictures you took of your toddler trying to give your baby a bottle? How about that shot of your first child crossing the stage at pre-school graduation? Safely stored on your computer? Safely? Really? If you’re like me you know just enough about computers to be dangerous. The fact of the […]

Gift Organization with Gift Elephant

Tweet In February I threw my daughter a fun Pinakalicious 5th birthday party and really felt like I was organized. I bought the thank you cards at the same time as the invitations, and I actually sat down and wrote each and every thank you at the end of the party. They’re still sitting on […]

Spring arrives, I pull back the curtains, open the windows…and grab my dust cloth! There is nothing to me like the smell of […]

Print and Prosper: Win the Kodak ESP 7 All-in-One Printer

Tweet This contest has ended. Congratulations to Kim! Last October I launched my own at-home business. I knew my start-up costs would be low. After all, my business is primarily conducted online and my office is in my home’s guest room. But one cost that adds up and can overwhelm any family or small business […]
