Holiday Acorn Ball A holiday acorn ball makes a great hanging decoration or table top ornament.

The bad news is I don't get to shop as much as I would like too and I do so enjoy shopping. It wasn't that long ago that I thought I had to chase every deal every week then it hit me. I don't. Seriously, how many tubes of toothpaste or bottles of body wash does my home really need and how much more would I save if I stopped chasing deals? To be honest with you, I cannot remember … [Read more...]
