With the price of gas through the roof and the cost of goods rising as a result, maybe it is time for a "retail fast". After a weekend in the mountains and a much needed "technology fast" I think a "retail fast" is a good follow-up. So how do we avoid those impulse purchases that we really don't need? Here are a few tips: Ask yourself the following 3 questions before a purchase 1. Do I really need it? 2. Do I really love it? 3. Is it functional for me and my home? Another great tip is to keep a running list of items you run out of or do need to purchase and stick to it! Remember when one item comes in another must depart. Finally wait, wait, wait. Take a few days to think about a purchase before you buy, you just might change your mind.
"How can we discover our Sacred Space? Shouldn't our home be a place of peace and tranquility? How can we find balance amongst the chaos of kids, jobs, cooking, and cleaning without taking time away from our family. Sacred Spaces is a holistic approach to organizing through clearing clutter, creating an earth friendly environment, and discovering your Sacred Space. Through my business, I share with others ways I have found balance while raising 3 children, teaching yoga, keeping house, and starting a business. We will work together in your home to decide what is useful & or celebrates you and what is holding you back ie. clutter. I hope creating this blog will provide a forum so we all can find our Sacred Space and simplify our lives so we spend more time living!"
