10 Gym Bag Essentials

It's the time of year when everyone heads back to the gym. In my experience, there's nothing worse than getting to the gym only to realize you've forgotten an important item. Here are the items I would be lost without at the gym.

Is it cheating to include the gym bag in my list? For me, the right bag makes everything better. As much as I love the sporty bags like the Adidas holdall bag, I just can't give up my backpack. I'm still rocking the one I bought from my college bookstore. It takes a lot of abuse and it may not be so cute anymore, but it's durable and if my gear starts to make it stinky I know I can just throw it in the washer.

Extreme Couponing and the Understocked Stockpile

I am dependent upon lists to keep me moving and help me get things done. I have daily lists, work related lists, book lists, and monthly lists, and I share these monthly lists every month in the BlogHer List Lovers group. If you click a few of the monthly lists, you'll notice that for the last several months I've had things like "clean the cold room" or "reorganize the stockpile room" on those lists and they haven't been crossed off. Yea, it's been a rough year.   Read more >

OMG! Onesies Are a Gateway Drug for Grandmas

Something weird has happened now that I'm going to be, OMG, a grandmother -- I've started shopping. Or feeling compelled to shop. It's kind of scary because I do not like to shop.

Apparently Johnny Mac Pippin needs them all. And a whole lot more, to boot.   Read more >

Extreme Couponing for Babies

Children are expensive. Raising one child, from birth through college, (a public college, at that), will probably cost you somewhere around $500,000. Baby's first year could cost you around $5,000 (if you don't have to pay for childcare), and you'll probably spend about $2,000 before you ever bring the baby home. That's why baby showers are such an awesome thing, they can help reduce the amount of money spent by new parents before baby comes home. That's also why you should seriously consider using coupons to help take some pressure off of your budget.   Read more >
