Focus on Life - Week 28

Week 28: Celebrate the Season

Summer is in full swing now. The local, seasonal fruits and vegetables are landing on the supermarket shelves. I like to follow the 'Eat Within 100 Miles' program when I can but during the winter months, that is pretty tough.

Focus on Life - Week 27

Week 27: Celebration
There are so many little celebrations that occur
everyday and you may not realize that they happen.

Everyone is trying to accomplish something big,
not realizing that life is made up of little things.
~~ Frank A. Clark ~~

Yes, it's the little things that make life worth living. Sharing time with friends and family, celebrating the milestones along the way. A simple 'thank you' can brighten any day. A smile in passing can lift your mood from downcast to sunny.

Let's not lose sight of all these little things as we move busily about our days. Stop for a moment and savour them.

De-Clutter Project - Week 27

I've been doing really well here this week. A lot of stuff has been donated to the local thrift store...glassware, books, clothing, etc. My local Value Village has a program where you can get stamps on a coupon card every time you bring something in to them.

One whole card was filled up, giving me 30% off my next purchase. I know, I know...I'm not supposed to be bringing stuff into the house while trying to get rid of stuff. BUT, I did need a few new tops for work and I actually was able to find some that fit me properly. Having a classic pear shape makes it difficult to find things that work for me and I was able to find four of them.

Well, then I went down the aisle where the dishes are. I always look for Fiestaware at the thrift stores but have never found any. In truth, I never expected to find any...ever. To my amazement, there on the top shelf was six dinner plates, four luncheon plates and three soup bowls!! I had to get them.

And I did get 30% off of everything with the coupon card. Saving money is good, right?

What area do you intend to tackle this week? What do you think you will find? More importantly, what will you do with it?
