3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

Hot and sunny weather most of the week here in Indiana and I am LOVING it!

pool reading

First thing I am LOVING lately…..

Reading time on my pool lounger

I got my favorite inexpensive floating pool lounger out and have used it twice this week. This baby has a cup holder for my favorite insulated cup ( this cup keeps beverages cool for hours on end) and keeps me out of the water so I can read my book without getting wet while letting my feet dangle in the water through its cut out (hard to explain but you can see it here).

I get into it without getting my book wet by dragging it up near the pool ladder and placing two kick boards under it to help it float just a bit higher off the water.

Of course I never take a chance reading a library book in the pool, instead I stick to books I own from inexpensive or free sources such as  Tyndale Rewards.

homeschooling books

Second thing I am LOVING lately…

More stuff out of my home…

Okay so the picture actually shows the stuff that came home with me but I did sell quite a bit at the secondhand homeschooling curriculum sale this week.

Here are my resale totals for June so far :

  • Yard Sale: $302
  • Secondhand Curriculum sale: $454.50

That is a total of $756.50 for the month of June from items our family won’t miss.

hair accessories

Third Thing I am LOVING Lately…

Some beautiful hair accessories to try

After talking about my new hairdo styling problems in my weekly newsletter a while back a reader and Lilla Rose consultant asked me if it was okay to mail me some hair accessories to try out.

I said sure and was so thrilled when they arrived and I found out she had sent me not one, not two, but three different pieces to try. My daughter and I are looking forward to trying them out.

3 Things I Am LOVING Lately: June 8th

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

The crazy days of summer have hit our home. This summer seems even more busy than usual, but we have exciting reasons for it to be. We are busy with preparations for our 5 to 6 month long RV trip planned for late this year or early next year. Part of that prep is having our two teenagers finish as much of their homeschooling as possible before we leave. Another part of it is reselling as much as possible to help raise money for the trip and leave our home in great shape for the home sitter while we are gone.

yard sale

First Thing  I am LOVING Lately….

A successful yard sale

We kicked off our reselling efforts with a yard sale. I brought in $302 between the hours of 8 and 3 last Friday. I thought that was pretty good. In the end I had one truck load to send to the thrift store and a smaller truck load to resell through eBay, Craigslist or Facebook.

If you are planning a yard sale soon here is a list of my yard sale articles..

curriculum

Second Thing I am LOVING Lately ….

More stuff about to leave my home!

This upcoming week a city near me is having a homeschooling secondhand curriculum sale. I am preparing to take part. I have gathered all the school books we no longer need into one area of my home and plan to spend sometime figuring out fair market value for them.

My hopes is to raise just as much money as I did from our yard sale.

root beer floats

Third Thing I am LOVING This Week…

A family round of root beer floats!

The grocery store had root beer and ice cream on sale so naturally that lead to a round of root beer floats for the family.

We are pretty particular about how we prepare our root beer floats around here.

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

Due to the 2 day Ultimate Homemaking Bundle sale starting yesterday I decided to change this weeks 3 Things I am LOVING Lately from Wednesday to Thursday for this week.

Just many of the advantages of being your own boss–you can switch things up when necessary.

Since the sale is still on today I thought I would highlight 3 resources from the bundle that I read and LOVED.

cozy

Cozy Minimalist Moms

This is a video driven course made up of 20 videos. It was so good I stayed up past my bedtime and watched every last video in one evening.

This course put gas in my decluttering tank and help me get rid of 4 truck loads of stuff in the last 3 weeks! And I think I can get rid of at least one more truck load before the yard sale we are having later this week.

Normally this course is $29 but it come as one of 97 resources available in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle which is $29.97 but only until midnight tonight (June 2nd)

 

framework

Building A Framework: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook

Even though I am 4 1/2 years into blogging I still picked up several new tips for generating more blog traffic ,and income that I am already starting to use and see results from.

New bloggers though will get even more out of this book than I did. Abby has done a great job of keeping the information inside this massive eBook up to date and simple to understand.

Building A Framework is normally $25 meaning your paying just $3 more to receive the other 96 resources in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle plus the bonus package.

gift box

Thinking Outside The Gift Box

Thinking Outside The Gift Box is cram packed with meaningful gift ideas and many of them are very inexpensive.

These are not your typical make a book of coupons type of ideas either, there are some really unique gift ideas to be found in this eBook.

It retails at $9.99 which means if you just wanted this eBook and nothing else from the bundle then the bundle would not be worth it but I am going to guess that if you take some time to explore all the resources offered in the Ultimate Homemaking bundle you are going to find several more eBooks and eCourses you want to explore and the bundle will become more than worth the $29.97 price tag.

Remember though the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is only available until tonight June 2 and since this is the flash sale that means this years version won’t be back again! Grab your copy today!
