13 Quick & Easy Family Meals

There have been times where I have gone to the grocery store to shop late in the day and while I’m there I plan to grab something for dinner.  Too often I was wandering around the store like I was lost because I had no idea what I was going to serve for dinner. I couldn’t justify spending so much on a frozen meal and I didn’t want to pick up take out...again, I also didn’t have time to make anything from scratch. I had to come up with a fail proof plan for feeding my family on the fly.

Simple Jewelry Organization

Personally, I like most things orderly and tucked away, but I also like to be able to see some things at a glance; jewelry is one of those things I like to see.

Simple organization for jewelry. 

As usual I browsed Pinterest for ideas, but I needed solutions that didn’t require a new piece of furniture or a big budget. I also wanted to utilize vertical space as much as possible.

None of these 7 ideas are new ideas, but they are working well for me. They were inexpensive (or required items I already owned), easy to put together, and they display everything nicely.

Work From Home With Park Lane

I chose this company because I loved the product, the pay structure and I loved how it made me feel. I felt like I had a whole new wardrobe just by adding a few new jewelry pieces. I could take my regular jeans and t-shirt and dress it up with jewelry to go out without having to find something a little dressier to wear. As a full-time stay at home mom, I don’t have a ton of different types of clothes. The jewelry makes my wardrobe feel more versatile.

Oops, I Did It Again! Why I Joined Direct Sales After Multiple Failed Attempts.

Earlier in this series I mentioned that I was pretty skeptical about Direct Sales. This was mostly based on the fact that I had had multiple unsuccessful attempts at it over the years.

I gradually warmed up to the idea of attending parties and purchasing products from people who operated a direct sales company. I really loved all the products, but I was still skeptical about the business model and whether it actually worked or not. Little did I know my mind was about to be changed.

Simple and Inexpensive Under Sink Organization

Another great place to start other than the declutter challenge, is by starting with one small area at a time. Don’t underestimate the impact a small organized area can have.

Recently I did a revamp on my cabinets, under the bathroom and kitchen sinks. Oh man do I love how it turned out!!

Work At Home With Tupperware

Tupperware has been around since 1946, so I had heard about it and was aware that they were a kitchenware company. There were a few items I was aware of, but they were items my grandmother had owned, so they were dated.

After interviewing Heather, I asked if I could look at some of the products.

I may have gotten slightly excited!! One of the first things she pulled out was a set of mixing bowls…in purples and pinks!! Um, hello, you had me at purple!! Ha!! so obviously that was my first Tupperware purchase.

I feel like I had finally arrived at adulthood ;)

Work At Home With Thirty-One Gifts

As an organization fanatic, I fell in love with all things Thirty-One.

Seriously, I get giddy over their products. The beautiful designs and practical function of the products made them (at least in my mind), the perfect solution for so many areas of my home. I want pretty much at least one of everything, buuuut…have to show some restraint.

My first exposure to the products was through a friend who had worked as a consultant. She had it throughout her home, but the thing that really caught my attention was her wallet. I love a wallet that opens up all the way and has a lot of space for organizing.

After seeing her wallet, I decided to check everything out online.

You guys, I’ve been hooked ever since.

Work At Home With Arbonne

My first interview was with my friend Angela.

Angela asked me if I wanted to try the Arbonne skincare products and I thought, why not?

After using them for the first time, I could not stop touching my face. It was so soft! 

The next day I was visiting with a friend and she mentioned that my skin looked amazing, which was a miracle seeing as it was that time of the month when my skin looked its worse. 

I knew it was the Arbonne! My skin not only felt incredible, but it looked great too!

I wanted to know more about the company and Angela's business, so I asked if I could interview her.

There are so many work at home opportunities available for those that want to make some extra income. BUT as great as they sound, my question is, do they actually work?
