Not Gonna Take It Laying Down

While at WalMart the other day, I decided that the economy can do what it's going to do - I still have to feed my family and I still plan on feeding my family.

I will cut back in other ways on my budget in order to buy fruits and vegetables for my family. While we all love some 'junk food', I refuse to buy just junk food in order to meet my budget.

I shop sales. I use coupons. I have not reached the level of Coupon Mom or Money Saving Mom, nor do I have a year's supply of food as some religions suggest. Even still, I make due as best as I know how.

I pray that everyone reading this does the same for their family - to the best of their ability.

I know it's tough. But I don't think it's going to last forever. Furthermore, I believe that it's only during the times of struggle that we truly learn how to live.

This is what I'm doing. Won't you do the same?

Until next time...

  3. Oh I am happy to know that I am not the only mom out there that is not great with the coupons. I try... but I am so not very good at it.
    My girlfriends always tell me how much they save going here and there with their packet of coupons and rebates. I just don't have it in me to drive around to different places and keep track of it all. I suck.
    But I feed my family very healthy... and don't buy junk food much either.
    All the coupons seem to be for stuff I don't use or a brand I refuse to use.
    Well, here's to you... and all of us that are doing the best that we can for our families however we can!!

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here.)

Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great.

That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.)

{Planners for the Rest of Us} 2016 Uncalendar End-of-Year-Review

It has been just about a year since I started using the Uncalendar my mother gifted me last year. I received another one this year (this time, from The Man Beast). I thought it would be an excellent time to update readers on my usage of the Uncalendar this past year - what worked and what didn't.

If you have fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to click on the link below in order to see the video version of this post.





The Uncalendar Lifestyles Pro is a three-ring binder undated planner that comes in red, blue, or black. I received the full-size version, but the company also provides a half-size version of both the Pro and the regular Lifestyles version. The Uncalendar website has pictures of their products as well as upclose screen shots of the pages. The company also provides a skills center meant to help Uncalendar users get the most out of their planner.

After watching just a handful of Uncalendar videos (seriously, there aren't a whole lot available - at least when you co…
