Menu Planning Monday:: Week of October 20

I LOVE Fall and all the tasty soup recipes! 🙂 I’m excited that temperatures are finally cooling off down here in South Alabama for me to add some soups into our menu. They are super easy, filling, and most of the time they are also fairly cheap to make. They also usually produce A LOT of leftovers. I’m hoping to freeze some of the leftovers so we have some “freezer meals” on hand for busy nights during the holiday season.…

31 Days to Clutter Free Challenge:: Day 14–Master Closet

Today’s Clutter Free Challenge is the Master Closet. Our Master Closet will take more than the 30-60 minute allotted time frame to declutter! Our closet was a storage room and was turned into a huge walk-in closet. Well, our bedroom is small and so some things just ended up being pushed into the closet. Our closet serves as a place to hide Christmas presents, the place to just put something that doesn’t have a “home”. . . . . we…

31 Days to Clutter Free Challenge:: Day 9–Dining Room

Besides the Entry Way in my home, the next place we tend to just place things is the Dining Room. Our Dining Room is right off of our Entry Way and it’s just the next feasible place to place items. Although this is a feasible place to put items, it’s not where they belong and it just becomes a cluttered mess {as you can see in my picture below}. This is one area of our home that drives my husband…

31 Days to Clutter Free Challenge:: Day 8–Junk Drawer

Do you have a “junk drawer” in your home?

Then when you need to find that small item, you just can’t find it because of all the “junk”. Today’s assignment is to go through and “declutter” your junk drawer.…
