saving time // grocery shopping tip

One simple step I’ve been trying to take lately is to bag the items I buy at the grocery store according to where I need to store it when I get home. Since cloth bags are *the thing* these days, it makes it so much easier. I’ve found this saves me time when I’m unpacking and shelving and storing everything when I get home.

Not that I will rehash the last six months in detail, but generally, I’ve been doing much thinking and praying about this site and where God would use me and the time He’s provided. So in addition to dusting off these pages, I’m also inching toward the goal of applying my life coaching certificate to helping people reach their healthy …
