When money is tight, I NEED a clean kitchen. I need to see the simplicity that a space can have. I need it to look good empty- so that maybe my bank account will look good empty. I almost appreciate the comfort of appreciating what I have, as opposed to what I need. Sure, I need a wedding band, my air conditioning fixed, an outfit that I haven't work 15,423,472 times, the latest gadget, and maybe a new car. But now that I can't have all that right now, the weight of decision making is lifted off my shoulders. Now I need to bake, to invent a dinner from the things in my cupboard, to watch my favorite movie, to finish my knitting project.

You'll find me using vinegar to wash my counters and prettying the things I have instead of buying something new. Which is how it should be.


  1. Frugality makes you appreciate abundance so much more and brings out your creative side...there's a silver lining to everything if you look hard enough for it. :)

  2. WHERE ARE YOU!!!!??? facebook says you don't exist...
    i was going to ask you when a good time for me to visit would be. We could take some engagement photos... PS. start thinking of some places you would want to take them. we can look around also, but it helps if you already have some pretty or memorable places in mind. :)
