Good Reads: An Autumn Snowman

We got our first snow of the year this week. We got about an inch or so of heavy, wet snow – perfect for the first snow balls and snowman of the year! Then funny part is that it’s still Autumn here and I haven’t raked the yard yet so it was covered in leaves, making our snowman more of a snow-leafman. The girls ate their first snow of the year and remembered how cold it is to sit in snow without wearing snow pants. I, on the other hand, realized I better get some boots for Chloe quick. Winter doesn’t wait for anyone around here!

Here are a few things I enjoyed reading this week. Be sure to check back (or subscribe!) next week because I have some great things lined up – Chloe’s free princess costume and a giveaway!

Check out what Mandi’s written so far in her series Organizing Your Way To A Simple Christmas. Face it – it’s just around the corner.

The best personal finance tip is to Spend Less Than You Earn according to J.D. at Get Rich Slowly. I couldn’t agree more.

Have you ever Checked Out The Oops Paint Section at your local home improvement store? Courtney did and she got a great deal.

I’m holding my breath because all of my utility bills increase during the winter – yours too? Check out David’s 27 Ways To Save Money On Your Utility Bills at My Two Dollars.

Sometimes it’s tough to Find A Little Piece Of Quiet. It’s good to know I’m not alone on that one. Lisa shares it perfectly at (In)Courage.

In the Autumn mood? Me too. Kitchen Stewardship has One-Bowl Pumpkin Bread/Muffins.

Tsh posted How To Clean Your Face Naturally: The Oil Cleansing Method. I am so intrigued. Have you ever tried this?

Interested in knowing How Much It Costs To Raise Children? Craig shares his real-life expenses and gives you 10 ways to cut costs at ChristianPF.

Why I do what I do ~ The same day it snowed, it melted. The next day Chloe was looking out the window and said, “Mom, look it’s melting!” I asked her what was melting. She said, “The grass! And then there will be snow.” To sum things up … The snow melts and there’s grass underneath. When the grass melts, there’s snow again.Have you liked Domestic Cents on Facebook yet?

I use the oil cleansing method and I will tell you – IT WORKS! I have had problems with acne all my life. MANY trips to the dermatologist and MANY different prescriptions (creams, pills, washes, and more!) later, I STILL have acne, and it has never gotten any better. I was at my wits-end, so when I heard about the oil cleansing method I figured I’d try it. The day after my first “session” – I had a TON of white heads. They were “sucked” to the surface of my skin. I took care of them, and I haven’t had many since. I just love how it is NATURAL and WORKS! Duh! I definitely recommend at least trying it to anyone who has skin issues.

Thanks again for the link, Nicki! That snowman is the cutest thing!!! And I’ve got castor oil on my shopping list for this week so I can try out the oil-cleansing method too — LOL!

My daughter was talking about eating snow today because it was cold — 50 degrees. I told her not to hold her breath.

The first snow is the best!
