How We Save on Everyday Expenses + $18 offer for you!

Here's how we save on everyday expenses like personal care supplies, cleaning supplies and even disposable stuff.

I’ve noticed that the fastest way to spend huge amounts of money on common household items is to run out. If we run out of something, I typically stop at the grocery on the way home and grab it.   Two problems with this method: It’s hard to find an environmentally friendly product we like that is also chemical free. If I do find that product it is quite spendy. How We Save on Everyday Expenses: Our expense plan is […]

Welcome back to another Monday! Yaaah…aaaan 😉 I’m always tired on Mondays and you know why? It’s all my fault. I remember my vitamins and take them well during the week.

First up, cantaloupe. I love that fruit so very much, and right now […]

How to remove the stink from kitchen towels. Here's why your dish towels get a funky smell to them and how to get rid of that smell.

We’ve all been there. You open the cupboard or drawer, pull out a clean dish towel and prepare to dry dishes when you smell it. That clean dish towel you just pulled from the drawer smells horrible. Let’s talk about How to Remove the Stink from Kitchen Towels. First of all, why do they stink? You are probably washing them decently frequent, your laundry soap hasn’t changed, and maybe you even line-dry your towels which is supposed to help with the […]

Avoiding Controversial Subjects – Living Proverbs 31

Does avoiding controversial subjects online make you a coward? Sometimes the internet is a scary place and it needs the peace makers too.

You may have noticed my overall avoidance of controversial subjects here at A Proverbs 31 Wife. I have very strong beliefs on most subjects and yet I constantly find myself carefully Avoiding Controversial Subjects or tip-toeing around most of them. This has bothered me for some time. Am I avoiding speaking truth because I want others to like me? Am I not posting controversial stuff because I’m scared of losing followers? Am I ashamed of the Truth? These questions and many […]

How to make solar powered mason jar lights with with string lighting. Beautiful outdoor mason jar lighting.

With fall coming on, for some reason I got it into my head that I wanted some “warm” outdoor lighting. I knew I wanted to make Mason Jar Lights but wasn’t quite sure how to go about it. Candles seemed neat but also very short-term. That’s when I got the idea to use string lights. It was perfect timing when a company asked me to review their solar-powered string lights on Amazon. I immediately knew I would use them, but had […]

No Bees No Food and What to do About it

No bees no food. Click here for a list of ways bees help us and how we can help the bees.

This Post “No Bees No Food” is sponsored by Friends of the Earth as part of their #BeBold campaign. All opinions are my own. Bees. Those buzzy little things that fly around plants and flowers. Those fuzzy little insects that carry stingers around on their rears. Are bees only good for stinging? Of course not! That was a silly question and we all know that bees make honey and that they have something to do with making plants grow. But what […]

Your Powerful Words

How do you use your powerful words? Did you know your mouth carries the most powerful weapon in the world?

What do you do with your powerful words? Do you use them to encourage? To uplift? To Build up? Or are you using your powerful words to shame, scorn and destroy? It’s amazing how many words the average person speaks, hears, and even reads a day. Words which standing alone, have little meaning, but strung into sentences and paragraphs have the power to make or destroy someone’s day. Words like “love, good, wow, impressive, beautiful, and precious” build up and endear. […]

Hello dear readers! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another Monday. I’m not, but pretty sure that doesn’t matter to “Monday” 😉 Just have a couple features to share with you before moving on to the party. From Meghan Carver, I found a funny little post that reminded me quite well of my own homeschool days. As a homeschooler, things are often rather unconventional and “do what works” and kids learn. That’s what matters? Check […]

Tired of waking to a messy house? Wake up to a clean house every morning by doing this! Just a few minutes in the evening will make a huge difference!

Most evenings I’m exhausted. By the time supper is over and baby in bed I don’t want to do anything but veg on the couch, or better yet, just go to bed. But if I do that, I have to deal with a messy house in the morning before I can even officially start a new day. I wake up to a clean house every morning with these three little tricks. No, I don’t have a cleaning fairy, or friendly […]

If Momma Isn’t Happy, We Have a Problem

It’s an old saying “If Momma Isn’t Happy, then Nobody’s Happy”. I find that statement to be pretty true. As the “queens of our homes” we are largely responsible for the attitudes that are found there. How we feel about order and cleanliness will be reflected in the overall appearance of our homes, and how we feel about life will be reflected in our family’s attitude. If we are short-tempered or easily frustrated, our kids will quickly pick up on that and […]

Hello lovely readers! How are you enjoying the outdoor sauna that much of the country is under? Me, not so much. I try not to complain during the winter, even when it’s bone chilling cold. Why? So I can complain now. I really struggle to breathe when it’s hot and humid and grocery shopping over the weekend was miserable. The good news is, my shopping is now done for another 2 weeks. So, if you are one of those lucky […]

How to Get Rid of Washer Stink – Front Loader Mold

I knew when I bought my front loader washing machine that I would likely have issues with mold and stink. But I love how well they clean huge loads (as long as they don’t stink) so chose one anyway. A front loading washer needs bi-weekly cleanings (or monthly in my case) to keep it clean and mold gone. Not a hard thing to do and typically it completely takes care of the smell. But lately my washer stunk every single […]

Hello dear readers, It is my custom to write a post of inspiration and/or encouragement to start off your week. On occasion that custom gets broken. Occasions like today, when the summer doldrums have struck and I find myself more interested in chilling with the family, than writing. I prayed several times over the past week for a topic, but none ever came to mind. It just seemed more important to love on my little man, and deal with something else […]
