I have a new blog!

I’m avoiding homework today. No particular reason. Just trying to clear my head a bit, I guess.

Anyway, what do I do for fun or to clear my mind? Well, if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know the answer to that question:  I make blogs.

To keep a long story fairly short, I’ve decided to start a completely new blog which has no particular point other than to share current life events and other random things that have no place else to go: Photos, flash fiction, poetry, rants. Whatever.

So, to all of you — my long-time faithful followers and any newbies — please feel free join me on my newest blogging adventure!  I honestly have no idea where this journey may take us.  That’s why it’s an adventure.

The Simple Times ezine is BACK!

After being on haitus for nearly a year, Simple Times is back … and better than ever!  Now in an easy-to-read online magazine format with more great content and weekly updates.

Get the latest news from all around the web on saving money, living simply, homemaking, parenting, education, cooking, and more!

You’ll find a subscription form on the page … be sure to enter your email address so you won’t miss any future issues!

The Simple Times Newsletter is dedicated to the pursuit of simple living.  The purpose of Simple Times is to provide inspiration, encouragement, motivation and practical help for those who (for whatever reasons) are choosing to simplify their lives.

This free publication — which began in 1995 — will appeal to people from a wide array of backgrounds and lifestyles: working parents, single folks, stay-at-home moms (and dads, too!), homeschooling families, voluntary simplicity adherents, “involuntary” simplicity (due to corporate lay-offs, stagnant wages, etc.), or anyone else who would like their life to be less busy, less cluttered, less complicated, or less expensive.

Whether your personal definition of simple living focuses on saving money for your regular family expenses (food, clothing, utilities, etc.); saving time and energy through easier housekeeping and cooking techniques; or moving to the country to homestead your own little piece of heaven, Simple Times should prove to be fun and helpful.

Regular topics will include:

  • Frugality
  • Simplified housekeeping
  • Decluttering tips
  • Enriching (and inexpensive!) educational ideas for children
  • Using leftovers
  • Freezer meals (recipes, tips, questions and answers)
  • Inexpensive, creative and simple recipes
  • Food prep and storage
  • Shopping tips
  • Craft projects (for kids and adults)
  • Interviews
  • Recommended resources
  • Book reviews
  • and lots more!

To sign up, just visit the Simple Times page and enter your preferred email address into the subscription box.  Easy peasy!

I’m NOT Susie Homemaker!

I realized my focus right now is digging myself back out of my messy house.  So the idea for “I’m NOT Susie Homemaker” was born.

We’ll see how it goes.

I’ll be posting there this summer rather than here (for the most part) so if you want to keep up on current updates, come by and follow me there, too.  :-)

Hope to see you all there!  Onward and upward.

I have a new Facebook page!

Stop by and “Like” me.  Hope to see you there!  https://www.facebook.com/debitaylorhough

Here are four things to know about my Facebook fan page:

It’s Directly from Me!

Some authors hire other folks to do their social networking for them. Well, not me!  Even if I could afford to hire someone, I’d still want to keep tabs on what’s happening there, myself.  You’ll find assorted information about freezer cooking, saving money, simple living, parenting, and anything else that happens to cross my mind as I’m going about my day.

It’s a Glimpse into My Real Life!

Ever wonder what I do during the day?  Well, other than directly asking my kids, my cats, or my neighbors, you can follow me on Facebook and get a glimpse into the “real” me as I try to stay ahead of the dirty laundry, mossy lawn, messy storage shed, gunky microwave, and all!

It’s a Two-Way Conversation!

Social media is all about connections and conversations, and I really do watch what you say on my Fan Page.  And I usually respond — if I’m not swamped with homework, that is (I’ve gone back to college full-time).  Feel free to post a question or a comment — and if I don’t respond, someone else probably will. We’re a friendly bunch.  :-)

It’s Easy to Sign Up!

If you don’t have a Facebook account already, it just takes a minute or two to set it up. Just go to http://www.facebook.com, fill out the little form, click the “sign up” button, and you’re set. Next, visit my Facebook Fan Page at http://www.facebook.com/debitaylorhough  and then click on the “Like” button. Now when you log in to your Facebook account, you’ll see my most recent posts on your News Feed.

Hope to see you there.  Or as we said back in the day, “Be there or be square!”

by Jodi Moore

What is an Emergency Binder?

When thinking about emergency preparedness, each family should have a disaster kit put together which includes things like first aid items, 72 hour food kits, extra outfits, etc. An emergency binder is an integral part of this kit. Continue reading
