The blog is back!
I am excited to pick up on this again, in no small part because as my second child grows up I'm really ready to purge those awful-but-worth-their-weight-in-gold-when-they-entertain-babies Big Things (gently used jumparoo anyone?). But also because I can use the extra kick in the pants to get rid of the crap that clutters my life.
This year (and we're talking 2012 here) I'm thinking about Accidental Income. I'm curious to try to monetize all those little extras this year and see where it gets me. For example: that jar of change I collect from pockets when I do laundry (finders keepers bitches - if I leave $20 in my pocket and you do the laundry that Andrew Jackson is yours); those maternity clothes I'm bringing to the resale shop in January; how much do I save over a month with coupons? And so on.
I've also decided to expand the blog a bit to include more of my "lifestyle" (yeah, that sounds obnoxious) and things I like that keep my world un-cluttered - not just Things I'm Getting Rid Of. [can we talk about Hoarders and Hoarders: Buried Alive at some point please? Ugh - love.]
So let's start with a link! Here is something fantastic I read today about the "5 Things to do 10 Minutes Before Bed". Brilliant. I already do numbers 1 and 2, and ready to add 3-5. Let's get our shit together in 2012! [personal note: must find something that rhymes with twelve other than 'delve']
