Do you feel busier or more involved than other people in your church community? Watch out! Be careful not to use yourself as a barometer to measure others.
Is the husband exempt from engaging in it because he’s supposed to be providing? Is the wife expected to do it, just because it’s her turf?
Hey everyone! Here’s another tip on what hubby and I scrimped on for our wedding: Printed wedding invites. Some couples may feel that this is something you can’t skip; again your wedding, your rules. I’m just happy that Dave and I agreed that we can do e-invites and allot the wedding budget elsewhere. It was easier for us to monitor our guestlist and it was also more convenient for our guests to confirm or decline.
After making a list of our essentials and nice-to-haves, it was easier for us to assess which ones we’d allot more money for in our budget. When you’re planning your wedding, it’s important to remember that:
1) advice from experienced wedding professionals is valuable but be discerning as well. There are some that I have worked with who put the welfare of their clients and fellow suppliers above all, and then there are those who have a different agenda.
2) seeking inspiration is good but ultimately, it’s still YOUR WEDDING, so your rules and preferences will take precedence. Don’t allow popular trends and peer/family pressure to dictate how you’re supposed to wed.

Aside from saving us lots of time and money, we are able to choose our ingredients well so we can create healthy and tasty meals. Our staples include tofu, sweet potato, veggie meat and grains. We season them with spices, herbs and broth.

With all the year-end sales happening, I had to remind myself to DECLUTTER FIRST before adding new items to my wardrobe. Here are some of my wardrobe decluttering tips that I’ve used through the years. Hope this helps you as you start fresh for the new year.
Looking polished and professional doesn’t mean you always have to be decked in designer goods from head to toe. Sometimes, it’s the simple things like making sure your clothes are pressed, there are no loose threads and you wear styles that are apt for your body type and proportions. See what little habits you may be guilty of that give off the impression of being unkempt and unprofessional.
