December’s Monday Madness
December’s Monday Madness brought some fantastic posts that I want to share with you. As usual, I will break them down into categories making it easier to group them together.
- Saving money is an important occupation of mine! This is one reason this post caught my eye, the other is the wealth of information stored! If you like to save money then this article is one that you must read.
- Budgeting is the only way that you should deal with your income; it is the key to a successful financial future. I think this is why I like to look at how other people create their budgets and work their personal finance. What I love about this budget is it’s zero budget, this is the principal that I use and many people I speak to have never even heard of this system.
- Another financial area that you should look at regularly is your credit rating. This tells you what you need to do to improve your score and ability to get good credit further down the line.
- Getting your home clean and ready for the changing season is not something new but there are some areas that are easier than others; one area I hate; upholstered chairs, they are a nightmare to keep clean but this article goes into cleaning upholstered chairs and how it isn’t that difficult to clean, after all!
- Getting our homes clean is a challenge in itself and having a dishwasher for many is just one less task to perform, I had a choice between a tumble dryer or dishwasher and I chose the tumble dryer! I do wonder the chemicals it takes to get a dishwasher to clean the pots and pans if you are looking for a greener option to dishwasher tablets then this recipe for dishwasher soap might fit the bill!
- If you have yet to put away your decorations then knowing how to store them is important, there is nothing worse than thinking you have some beautiful decorations only to find that the way you stored them last year has meant they are now only worth going in the bin! This article talks about the different options open to you, it will also tell you why you need to use your camera for before taking down the decorations!
How can I move forward without acknowledging those Star Wars fans and the options open to them for decorating and making items based on these films?

- Parenting is one of the hardest jobs you will ever have to do, and it never gets any easier. However, there are tips out there that can help you reduce that frustration and find that happy baby once again! Here are some great tips for finding that happy baby!
- Listening to our children is important, it lets them know their voice and opinions matter and sometimes it is hard to do when you have one that can talk all day long! However, it is an important thing to do!
- Let’s not forget the father-to-be, they are going through a tough time too and they also need advice as to what to do with their child, it is so good when dads are a part of their child’s lives!
