What Is Your Joy?

I received compensation for my work on this post about what brings me joy. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

It’s the season of joy. The season of thankfulness, of love, of happiness, of appreciation. The best season of the year! :) Which is why I’m going to share what makes me full of joy, and ask you to share the same with me. Why? Because joy needs to be shared. And because I always love hearing from you guys.

Win a NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo Coffee Brewer – Value $99!

One thing I can’t live without to get my morning started everyday (and sometimes afternoon), is a hot cup of coffee. With a crazy busy schedule, brewing a whole pot is sometimes out of the question, and really a waste since I’ll be jetting out of the house after my first cup anyway. If you’re in the same boat, you want something that satisfies that craving, but that isn’t wasteful or expensive. Do we have a solution for you!

DIY Pencil or Marker Holder

This post to share cool new ways to use Palmolive is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own. As always :) #PalmoliveWM

I love being crafty. I love being frugal. I love when I can be frugally crafty. Which is why, ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a big fan of “junk crafting” – taking things you would normally just throw away, and creating something nifty with them. Which also explains why I can’t throw away a jar to save my life. I’m a jar-aholic. True story. But seriously… Think about our grandparents. My grandma lived by the saying, “Use it upwear it out, make it do, or do without.” You didn’t just buy new pants every season – you patched up last seasons. Let out the hem to make them longer. Or hemmed them shorter to hand down to the next kid. You know? So, in that spirit, I have a fun little DIY project for ya today. Super simple, perfect for back to school, and will cost you almost nothing. Perfect, right? :)
