The Pre-Move Day Checklist

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy)

So, the big day is finally here! Yep, after months of planning and a LOT of stress, you are finally moving out of your old house and into your shiny new one. With the process being as difficult as it often is, you are probably breathing a sigh of relief that the whole thing is coming to a close. But remember that it's not over until the fat lady sings - you still have a day to go before you turn the key in your new place, and this day is more important than you might think. There are plenty of specific things you need to go the day before you move - and even if you think you're the most organized you've ever been in your life, you are bound to forget something! Here's a foolproof checklist for that all important last day before you move.

Packing- Yep, it goes without saying, but make sure you have everything packed and organized within an inch of its life. The golden rule is to leave any 'essentials' until last - so phone chargers, your children's favorite toys, toiletries, etc. Ensure that you have plenty of boxes - more than you need, in fact. The last thing you need on moving day is being caught short and having to carry the last of your possessions into the van one by one! Make a point of hiring moving companies who will be able to help you dismantle certain pieces of furniture - if you don't, you're on your own with that one. Don't forget any other fixtures such as curtains or lamps, if you intend to take them with you. Disconnecting your electronics before you leave is also very important, and you will need to defrost the fridge freezer too.

Create a 'moving day' package- When the big day arrives, you are going to need to have certain items to hand. Once everything is packed up there's no going back. So make sure you have all the things you need within easy reach to make the day go as smoothly as possible. These could be toys for your children, as they will get easily bored or even emotional on moving day. You may also need high-energy snacks available - after all, moving day doesn't tend to leave much time for meals!

Planning the route- If you are moving towns or even states, you need to be fully prepared for a lengthy journey. Make sure your removal company knows exactly where they're going - you may decide that you drive together, one following the other, so you guarantee that you end up with everything you need all at once. Check your satellite navigation system the night before and make sure it's fully charged up, and the same goes for your cell phone. You never know what can happen on move day, so you will need to be contactable at all times. With any luck the day should go without a hitch, but it is always better to be prepared.

Product Review: Ardenne Farm Gluten-Free Baking Mixes

Disclosure: I was provided with the products in this post to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Please see my disclosure policy

It can sometimes be challenging to find great tasting gluten-free boxed baking mixes. I have tried several different brands but the ones from Ardenne Farm are my absolute favorite! I have tried their chocolate chip cookie mix, pancake & waffle mix and brownie mix and all of the products were phenomenal! Recently, I was given the opportunity to review their Oatmeal Cookie mix and Cinnamon Crunch Muffin and Crumb Cake. I cannot begin to tell you how delicious that these products are. Even my boys and husband (who are not gluten-free) devoured every last bit of the items! They are so delicious! Make the products for your family and friends and don't tell that they are gluten-free. They will never know! Ardenne Farm is now my go-to company for baking mixes! You will be hooked too, I promise! 

The Ardenne Farm Cinnamon Crunch Muffin and Crumb Cake is to die for! This mix makes delicate and tender cinnamon muffins or crumb cake with crunchy cinnamon streusel topping made from turbinado sugar. I chose to make the muffins and we thought that they were some of the best muffins ever! From the photo above you can see just how beautiful they bake in the oven!

I also loved the Oatmeal Cookie Mix and it is one of Ardenne Farms most popular items. This mix makes an old-fashioned thick and chewy cookie made with gluten free oats and brown sugar. I added chocolate chips to half of the batch. Yum! So chewy and delicious just like an oatmeall cookie should be!

Are you ready to dive into these delicious gluten-free goodies for yourself? Check out the Ardenne Farm site for a list of all their products. You can also follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date on all the latest news and products.

Looking And Feeling Your Best On A Shoestring Budget

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

If you’re on a shoestring budget, then you might be wondering just how you’re supposed to look and feel good about yourself. Don’t worry! The tips here will help you to look and feel your best regardless of your budget. You don’t need a lot of money to be the best version of you!

Make Or Upcycle Your Own Clothes

OK, so you don’t have much money, and clothes are really expensive these days. What can you do? How about making or upcycling your own clothes? Making your clothes is a little harder. Probably a little more expensive at first too, as you’ll need a sewing machine and supplies to get started. However, once you have those things, you can start changing up your current pieces. Whether you change the length, the fit, or simply add badges and patches, you can create a whole new piece of clothing.

If you’ve been staring at something in your wardrobe for a while but you haven’t worn it, don’t give it away or throw it in the bin. Try to create something new with it first. With a tutorial and a few pieces of equipment, you might just be surprised at what you can make.

Make Some Of Your Own Products

Why not make some of your own products too? You can make natural face masks with things like honey and yoghurt. You can even make body scrubs using honey and brown sugar. Natural ingredients are great for the body, and can be used for many different purposes around the house too. You can also be smug when you tell yourself that your beauty routine is all natural and homemade!

Find Bargain Makeup Stores

Don’t worry when it comes to buying makeup, either. Makeup can be really expensive, that is, until you find bargain makeup stores. You can find bargain makeup stores that sell all kinds, like Anastasia makeup and even NARS. If you do have the money to splash out on a product, make sure you look for one of these stores first. Just be sure to make sure they are legitimate. You don’t want to end up buying fake products, and potentially putting dangerous chemicals on your face in the process.

Treat Your Body and Mind Right

In order to look and feel your best, you need to treat your body and mind right. This means doing a bunch of different things to feel great in general. Exercise can be done outside and with minimal equipment; you really don’t need a gym membership. Doing this 3 times a week will make a huge difference to how you look and feel. Eating healthy may seem difficult, but when you grow your own veg and buy from local sources, you can get the best ingredients and save money at the same time.

Meditating is also a practice that is totally free and really valuable. It can help you to feel happier, more alert, more creative, and so much more! Doing it for just 5 minutes a day can make a difference!

Dead Simple Ways To Save Money Around The House

(All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

You probably don’t realize it right now, but there’s a ton of ways you can save money around the house. It’s all the little things: things you wouldn’t ordinarily think are costing you a fortune, but are.

Here’s a list of some of the ways that you could save money around the house. Hopefully, you’ll be impressed.

Rent A Steam Cleaner

Carpets can sometimes get really dirty, especially if you’ve got little ones running around all day. But actually getting the carpet clean can be expensive. You need more than a vacuum. Steam cleaners are complicated pieces of equipment and can set you back a lot of money. Don’t worry, though. Now you can rent steam cleaners from local hardware and grocery stores, meaning you don’t have to pay a fortune buying your own. Get rid of all that mud and dirt from your carpet as soon as possible and extend its life.

Learn To Sew

Image result for sewing machine

Sewing used to be something that most women could do. Fortunately, progress happened, and women found better uses for their time. But it turns out that the skill of sewing is actually a lot more important than most people think. All those ripped jackets and broken off buttons can get expensive if you’re replacing entire items of clothing every time. But if you can sew, suddenly the cost of clothing comes crashing down. Most stuff is repairable if you know what you’re doing.

Don’t Put Home Maintenance Off

Home maintenance can get extremely expensive, especially if you leave it until you have a real problem. If you notice mold climbing up your wall, call in a mold removal company. They’ll be able to get rid of the mold and give you a heads up as to whether you’ve got more serious problems with your foundations. Remember, the quicker you get the problem sorted, the more money you’ll save long term.

Build Up Your Barter Network

Paying for stuff using cash is convenient, but if your supply of money is limited, you could run into financial trouble. Instead of using cash for everything, consider building up a barter network with your friends. Trade your skills for one of their skills directly. For instance, you could offer haircuts in exchange for financial advice.

Invest In Blankets

Heating bills keep going up, thanks to gas and electric companies jacking up prices. But that doesn’t mean that you have to shell out even more money. Instead of putting your money into heating bills, put it into space heaters and thick warm blankets to keep everybody warm. Then, make sure that you and your family hang out together in the same room and share the warmth.

Use Neighbour’s Plants

Image result for plants sale

Food Credit

If you’re landscaping, don’t head off to the nursery and pay high commercial prices for your shrubs. Instead, canvas your neighbors and ask them if there are any plants that they wouldn’t mind you transplanting to a new location. Usually, you’ll find something to your taste. What’s more, it’s free. Perennials and bulbs can be easily shared.
