Join the Mommy Fest Blog Party from May 12-16 and meet other moms. I plan on hopping around to other mom blogs and would love you to join me! Click on the Mommy Fest link to see how to participate:

Mommy Fest Blog Party

As an introduction to the Mommy Fest participants, My name is Beth and I am a 37 year old work at home mom of two teens – a 15 year old young man (when he isn’t acting two) and a 13 year old young lady (don’t even think about calling her a kid).

I blog about simplifying, decluttering , finances and discovering what’s important. I started my first web page in 1997 when my kids were little. I have loved interacting with online friends, some whom I’ve had for 10 years.

I’ve been a SAHM, full time working Mom, part time working mom and love working at home right now.

I’m on a spending fast right now, so visiting all these blogs will give me something to do instead of buying things ๐Ÿ™‚

For fun, I write, scrapbook, hike, go to the beach, play the piano, get together with friends and take pictures. I have more hobbies than that but they change and shift with time. I also adore reading and am usually reading 3 or 4 books. Do you have any good book recommendations – non fiction or fiction?

Don’t forget to pick up a free declutter calendar in the side bar.

Also, I am giving away 5 Get Things Done Procrastination eCourses. Post in the comments of this post and I will pick 1 a day at random from comments between May 12th and May 16th.


10 Things about Me

  1. I am a published writer
  2. I didn’t pass my driving test until I was 27
  3. I’ve been to all but 5 states in the US
  4. My house is not perfectly organized
  5. I am only 4 ft 11 (well almost 4 ft 11)
  6. I laugh a lot
  7. I have weekly beach days in July and August with the kids
  8. I did plays in high school and college
  9. I love playing with new technology and my husband knows I would rather have a new tech gizmo than jewelry
  10. I am blessed with having both sets of grandparents whom I learn a lot from

Looking forward to getting to know you.

    Hi there,

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog the past few weeks, and I would love your procrastination ecourse – procrastination is definitely something I struggle with!

    Hi Beth,

    I love your site! I’m a neat freak at home and in church, but in my personal life, everything is CLUTTERED. I’ve been trying to get my outer life to match my inner life, so to speak. I’ve had your declutter calendar for January and every month I try to remind myself to post an updated one, but that has not happened. Sigh. Silly but sadly true… Nevertheless, I am inspired by your website and will continue to take small steps towards neatdom ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi, Beth. It’s nice to meet you. We have several things in common re hobbies, being on a spending fast, campaign for simplified living, etc, but I think the most important is … I’m also 4’11” (technically, 4’11.5″) but ssshh, I often round it up to 5′. ๐Ÿ˜‰
