Yarn Wrapped Wreath







If you follow me on pinterest, you've probably seen all the pins I've been posting of wreaths.
Grapevine wreaths, holiday wreaths, yarn wreaths ....
I like wreaths, they are an easy decoration. Just switch one out for another as the seasons/holidays/weather changes. My kind of decorating. And, they are pretty easy to make.

Target Beauty Bag


As a bargain hunter, I love to find good deals for my family, and use coupons to save.
I also love free samples. Love them. LOVE THEM!!
Seriously.
I'm not going to show you my sample stash,
because it's a disorganized mess embarrassing.
But, I will request samples of most anything; hey, ya never know. 

So, I was super excited when Target posted their free beauty bag of samples for the winter. 
{This is the 3rd sample bag I've gotten from them this year}





This pack came with the usual booklet of coupons,
and a bunch of small sample packets, as well as a leopard print cosmetic bag.
Samples included:
 Jergens daily moisture lotion,
Pixi beauty primer,
Fekkai shea butter shampoo and conditioner,
Clear scalp and hair therapy shampoo and conditioner,
and
L`Oreal EverCreme 3 step shampoo, conditioner, and nourishing masque.

So, several shampoo samples.
Which, I like.
Whenever we travel, the samples go with us.
They are light weight and travel well,
once we've used them, they get thrown away,
and we get to try new things.
(Plus, I get to feel a bit pampered while away from home. Which is always nice.) 

And that is the winter samples bag.

Calendar Pages for the Bills & Budget Binder


Remember the bills and budget binder I had posted about a while back?
Well, if you remember, I said I would make up the calendar pages for the rest of the months.
So, I've done that. 
They are blank calendar templates, so you will need to write (or type) in the dates, but you can use them year after year. 

You can find the printables here.

Grocery List


Ok, I know everyone and their brother has a grocery printable list. 
However, I made this because it works for me, and what I need when I go shopping. 
I have several of the lists that have every item in the store listed, and you check what you need, but it just doesn't work for me. They are a great reference for me though, when thinking about what I need to stock up on when, and where to stock up from.
