    Tiny Adventures Solo Holiday Party

    Yup, that’s right, I hosted/attended my very own staff party for Tiny Adventures. Max was busy, so I was unable to insert a joke about Shania Twain, but it was a fun event nevertheless. A solo holiday party for my side-hustle. I knew I had to make this first staff party pretty special, so I decided to go all out. But then came my first big dilemma… I needed to go out for supplies but I was stuck at home by myself with only the standard car in the drive way. Oh Dear. I stood at the entrance of the house for a good 20 minutes debating if I should…

    Tiny Tips – How To Relax During The Holidays

    A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail entitled A Gentle Warrior’s Guide To Embracing The Holidays. It felt like a sign, it was exactly what I needed. To sum it up, it talks about how stressful the holidays are and how we can change that. It spoke to me particularly because I’ve been trying to make self-care a priority, and taking it easy is exactly what we need during this busy time of year. We need to learn how to relax during the holidays. I know the holidays will look different for lots of different people, but I thought I would still take the time to share my best tips…

    Christmas Traditions

    Everyone I know has at least one Christmas Tradition. When Max started mentioning all the things we absolutely had to do when we visit his family next week, I started to wonder what kind of things I usually do with my family. And all of a sudden I began to feel very envious of people and their beautiful Christmas Traditions, and even more so, all the memories associated with them. It’s not to say I’ve never had any Christmas Traditions. Growing up, we would always – and I mean ALWAYS – have Christmas Eve supper at my grandma’s house down the street. When we arrived, everyone would make a HUGE scene,…

    Tiny Tips – Gift Ideas For Her

    I know that some people – ahem, men – sometimes have a hard time figuring out what to buy the women in their lives, be it a girlfriend, a sister or a mother. So I thought it would be a great time to give them some gift ideas since they may not have started shopping yet… and that’s OK, because all these gifts are still available for you to get before the holidays roll around! For the Stylista LEGGINGS Last week, I decided to make a trip to the CF Champlain mall, to browse through a few stores, look for some Christmas Gifts, possibly spoil myself a tiny bit. And…

    On Splurging

    As much as I love saving money – and it’s absolutely necessary if we want to make this Tiny House project a reality – I know that it’s also important to splurge a little sometimes. Sometimes it’s important to treat yourself (in moderation) for different situations, to celebrate milestones, and sometimes just because. It doesn’t have to be something big, but it should definitely be something that makes you happy. And that is tip number one. Let It Bring You Joy This should be the first thing you think of when you are going to make a purchase for yourself. Will it make you happy? Is this something that will…

    Tiny Tips – How to Budget For Christmas Gifts

    Budgeting for Christmas is never an easy thing to do. A lot of people have a strict budget to begin with, and Christmas gifts are an added expenditure which can easily get out of hand. That’s why it is very important to look at creating a budget specifically for Christmas presents and figure out how to make it work for you. Make a List I always start by making a list of who I need to purchase gifts for. This year is the first year we are only buying for those closest to us, so it will definitely save more money than in previous years when we bought for everyone.…

    How Buying Groceries In Bulk Saves You Money

    Last week, I took the time to write out a blog post about how you can save money by meal planning, and I included one of our small grocery lists. This week, I’m going to show you the importance of stock piling and you’ll be able to see what our bigger grocery lists look like! If you’ve never heard of stock piling, check out my first blog post about home organization to learn more. To make it brief, it consists of buying a large quantity of non-perishable products that you use frequently so you have them handy when you need them. And the reason you save money by doing this…
