One of the best experiences is trying food from a different area of the world. There are a variety of subscription boxes that allow you to try food from around the world. Bokksu is one of those boxes. It brings traditional snacks from Japan to your doorstep. I have been getting the Bokksu subscription for a few months now and really enjoy the chance to try all of the foods. The  February 2020 Bokksu had a Valentine Day theme with lots of pink packaging and fruit flavors. Want to give Bokksu a try? Sign up today! Use this referral link to get $10 off yourRead More →

Just like that February has arrived. January was quite a month, and I’m sure many people will agree that it felt significantly longer than it actually was. The start of the year either goes by super fast or drags on. This was one of those slower times, but it’s over now. One of the things I look forward to with the arrival of each month of reviewing the previous month’s goals and setting new ones for the current month. Before we take a look at my February 2020 goals, I’d like to take a moment to share how I did with January’s goals. January GoalsRead More →

How many times have you seen a notebook in the store and thought “Oh, I need this!” Only to discover 30 unused notebooks at home?

Now you have two and you still aren’t using them! Even after decluttering the home, there may still be items in it that probably could go. What about those items you still want to use? After months or years of owning it, is there any hope of actually usingRead More →
