Frugal Feminine Products???

Yep, that's right today we are going to talk about feminine hygiene!

A little while back I was watching a youtube video about how there are harmful chemicals in feminine products which I have been using since starting my menstrual cycle at 12 yrs old. GASP!!!! I am so mad at myself that I never researched this myself instead I just did what every woman does, just go to the store and grab the pads and tampons off the shelf without ever looking at the ingredients. I just assumed that they were safe. If you haven't checked out HeritageWays on youtube I highly recommend you check out her 3 part series on Feminine Hygiene. Anyways after watching those videos I decided to find all-natural reusable products. I first started with cloth pads byTeamoy. I got a multi-pack with different sizes and a wet bag. Let's just say I am in love with them not only are they pretty but they are highly absorbent and they don't give me rashes like the standard disposable pads did. Then because I am a tampon user I decided to find an alternative for that. Well, let's just say that the internet led me to the menstrual cup, I know sounds gross right? Well after much research I decided on the Organi Cup. Why this cup well because its made of 100% medical grade silicone and vegan-friendly which I liked.  How does it work you might ask? Well you insert it similar to a tampon but because its a cup it catches your flow instead of absorbing it in cotton ball that is laden with chemicals, now I know that you can buy all-natural tampons but I figured why not try a cup because if it works I will never have to buy products again because most cups last up to 12 years! Can you believe that! After a few tries with the cup because I will admit it takes some practice I can say that I am in love with the menstrual cup also. I recently have ordered another one that may fit me better because every woman is shaped differently and the height of the cervix differs from woman to woman. You may have to research and figure out what cup will work best for your body. But other than that I have no problem using cloth pads and a menstrual cup, the best part is for a normal flow you can wear a cup for up to 12 hours. So you literally empty it at night and in the morning, and you go all day with no worries of having to change a tampon every 2-4 hours! That's a win for me!! I hope you found this post informative and helpful and I highly recommend trying a different alternative to Feminine Products. Until next time God Bless!

Why I created A Delight Directed Curriculum!!!

Hello everyone!

Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

How To Budget (Envelope System)

Good Morning Everyone!

It is a wonderful morning and I am up and at em!!!! I already did my workout for the day and I am feeling good. Today we are going to focus on how to start a budget that you can stick to. I know for most people this is very hard but I promise if you can get a budget and stick to it you will conquer your finances. Budgeting is the number one way that has allowed me to stay at home with my kids and live on one income. I am strict and budget every dollar my husband brings in. Two years ago my husband was able to take a lower-paying job with less stress making half of what he was making because we budgeted and were frugal. Now that he has a better paying job which we are so blessed that he has, we understand that we can make it on very little and still have a happy healthy lifestyle all because of budgeting. So let's get to it!

First of all, when starting a budget you need to calculate your monthly expenses. I'm talking mortgage, rent, utilities, clothing, …

Do I Dare Talk About This??

Do I dare talk about this????

Well, lets get real and talk about when your child is strong willed and discipline, I know this is a touchy subject but thought I would share my view of it. Speaking from experience I know what its like to lose your mind as a parent when your child is defiant and just refuses to obey. My middle daughter was quiet a character as a toddler and young child, but as a preteen she is growing into a very lovely young lady. She has tried my patience many times and there were times I felt as though I just disciplined her all day long. She was a very stubborn toddler and child but because I am a christian I believe what the word of God says. I would rather give a quick swift spank and be done with the correction then to drag it out by forcing her to sit in time out all day long.

''Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.''
