A Giveaway!!

 It's a giveaway, people!
{cheers interjected here}
I have been passionate about lists and organization and things of that nature ever since I started my first business eight years ago.
It is very true that organization is crucial in any kind of business. 
And I personally think it makes life a whole lot more manageable!
So! These first items for the giveaway, I have had on hand for quite a while, just waiting for this post. =)
They are:
*full sized note pad
*receipt/coupon holder
*small spiral bound notebook
*sticky notes
Items like these are SO helpful to me in my quest to stay organized.
The second part of the giveaway is the very inspiring book "The Money Saving Mom", 
I LOVE my copy and would love to give this book to everyone I know if that were possible!
Reading and applying this book to your life honestly has the potential to revolutionize the way you budget, shop, and organize---all of that.
The great part is that it is definitely not just for moms,
but is just as applicable to us single people as it is to a Mrs.
NOW, after all, is the time that we need to start learning and implementing these principles in our lives. Just think how much easier it will be to run our own households someday if we already have the basics of budgeting and spending figured out. =)

Details to Enter:
simply leave a comment with your name! 
{you are welcome to add a little message too if you like, just for my benefit. =) but your name is all that is required for the giveaway}
-if you post about this giveaway on your blog or facebook, and link to this post, you may enter the giveaway a second time! just leave another comment saying that you linked it}
Giveaway ends on Monday, October 21st, at 4pm, and the winner will be announced directly after that.

happy weekend, friends!

    1. Well, I've started several...=) But the one I was referring to was when I started my piano studio. I shut it down 2yrs ago, but before that I taught for 6 years. And I learned {SO} much about organization and dealing with people and managing money and all of that, during those years. It was an awesome experience.

  27. Well, hello! This is honestly the first time I've ever visited your blog. I was just hopping around on your family's site and landed here. I'm a conservative Christian, and my husband and I sing at church and we are always looking for new music!

    This is a great giveaway! I'm a mommy of three little boys four and under, and my husband is in college full time and he has a full time job. Budgeting is definitely important in our family! I adore the other pieces you've put in! Adorbs!!

  65. Hello, Chelsy!

    I would love to be entered! I always enjoy things so much more when they're organized...but I admit, sometimes it is a struggle for me. This book looks like it's packed full of tips and inspiration!

    It's actually been on my list to e-mail you for quite some time (although I'm sure you can relate, it's the *finding* time that's the trouble!). I've gotten so much encouragement and inspiration from your blog for a number of years now, and I hope I have the opportunity to meet you in person one day!

    I hear we have a mutual friend, Tia- she is *such* a sweet friend and she speaks highly of you as well. Whenever I finally make it out to visit her, we must swing by to visit you, too!!

    Many blessings,
    Victoria
