Yup, we did it again, we took a family road trip from Minnesota to California…and back. Like I do about most things, I’ve taken some time to really reflect on every event that transpired during our 14-day excursion and I realized there were a lot of life lessons I took from our road trip. Life lessons that apply to all of us. Some funny, some not-so-funny…because, that’s kinda how like operates, after all.
For too long I spent my life believing that we would always be living paycheck to paycheck. After all, I was a stay at home mom. Life was supposed to be a struggle and money was meant to be tight, right? Wrong. Wrong, folks. While it’s not the case for everyone, for us, there was something that was standing in our way. Us. We weren’t managing our money the way we should and therefore weren’t accessing all that we could. Then, we finally discovered the top method for getting more money in our lives and the crazy part is you can get more money without working more! Tom and I have managed to get over $20,000 back in our pockets per year and I want to tell you exactly how.
I told Tom today, “I feel like my body is working but my brain isn’t there with it.” Life has been…a lot lately. But, the funny thing is, I have been handling all of the ups and downs a lot better than I used to which got me to thinking, what tips do I have for others who are in the midst of stressful times? What can you do in times of grief or chaos? There are actually quite a few ways to practice simplicity during stressful times and naturally…they are pretty simple…
For those of you following along, you may know our family of 5 just returned from a 2-week cross-country vacation. If you are following on YouTube you will have seen
As some of you may know we just took off on a 2-week long road trip through cold states like Wyoming and through warmer states like Nevada and California. Since the KonMari Method was such a huge success in our closet, Tom and I both wanted to use the same folding technique to pack our suitcases. Check out my KonMari Method suitcase for 2 weeks worth of clothes and get the update on how it went after the trip ended!
