Saving More by Doing Without

posted by Andrea | 03/7/2013 | 32 comments

Last month, I blogged about Saving More by Using Less… so along the same lines, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on saving more by doing without.

This is a very simple concept — but in our fast-paced, instant-gratification society, it might not always be something we think about.

Would you like to make MORE time? Join the club!
And what about multi-tasking? Do you love it or hate it? I think I fall somewhere in the middle on that one…

I’ve thought about starting a “Favorite Things” post for a while now… and it looks like today is the day! I’m always getting questions about products I use, items I like, etc. so I’m hoping to do a monthly post to share some of MY favorite things with YOU.

I’ve been reading a lot about pantry organization lately — and seeing loads of glamorous “designer pantries” {as I call them} plastered all over Pinterest. These pantries are fun to look at, but I have to question how functional and practical they really are — especially for busy families with children.
