Shock of all shocks, I actually had a few spare minutes to read blogs this week. It was the first time in months. Seriously.

Here were some of my finds:

Fix The Top 6 Causes of Clutter :: Real Simple on CNN, via Unclutterer

Tote Bag pattern :: J. Caroline Creative, via How About Orange

• The Crisis of Credit, part 1 and part 2 :: sent by Nicole of Burning Bushes (and I agree with her – the characterization of an irresponsible family is a bit much)

5 Lovely Ideas for Adding Ambience and Cheer Into Your Life :: The Inspired Room (that post title just puts me in a good mood!)

Quality Time: How To Find More and Some Ideas on How To Use It :: Simple Marriage

• How To Tablescape With What You Already Have :: Nesting Place

Good To Own: Useful Tools :: Small Notebook

How To Make Homemade Peanut Butter :: Joy The Baker

How I Cut My Television Bill In Half :: Get Rich Slowly

Paying Off Credit Card Debt in 6 Simple Steps :: Frugal Dad (if you haven’t done this in your life yet, please – do so)

Have a good, relaxing weekend – be sure to look through more of my finds up top (click on the “finds” tab).  And look for a new free PDF from me on Monday!

  1. Hi Tsh,
    I know the feeling of not having 10 spare minutes! With 3 small children, a household to run & a blog to write, there’s barely time to tinkle! :)

    I just discovered your blog & I love it–thank you for the great articles!

    Here’s an article from my blog that might help you in your quest to carve out a few minutes of free time. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks for the links, I had read some of them but others were new gems this morning. Good luck with packing and the move, I know that can be exhausting. My daughter has lived in three cities so far, and she’s just in first grade!

  3. I saw Joy’s recipe about making peanut butter and bookmarked it, too. A part of me is nervous with the peanut scare still fresh in my mind, but the other part of me thinks HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER? Yes. Yes. Yes.
