April was a very busy month. I spent weeks in Tennessee to help with my mother’s recovery. As you can see, this impacted my “empties”. I wasn’t home to use up products. Products, in general, weren’t on my mind.
When I stay with my family, I usually buy cheap products when I’m there instead of packing stuff. Overall, I was doing really well this month not buying things. At the end of the month, I went to Home Goods/Marshalls because David keeps breaking every… Continue reading | 16 Comments
Boxwalla is a new box subscription service. Or you can buy them one-time. What makes Boxwalla different than a lot of other services is that there are four themes or interests: Beauty, Book, Food and Film. The boxes are available every two months and you can choose which type of box you’d like.

I’ve decided in July that I need to “tackle” some of these samples… Continue reading | 12 Comments
March was one of the busiest months that I’ve had in many, many years. I’m going to take a break from unpacking and get my March Empties post together. I’ll give you a full update in my “Favorites” post, but I thought I’d let you know that we’ve officially moved. We have an address in New Jersey now. David started work and seems to like the new company a lot. I hang around this drafty, empty place trying to figure out what we need to… Continue reading | 12 Comments
