Among many other things, I am an Army Wife. For a long time I have wanted to put together a website like I hope this one turns out to be. Every day on Facebook I see posts from other Army folks looking for ideas. “What are some creative and inexpensive ways to decorate tables at formal events?” “Where can you order pins?” “What are some good volunteer appreciation gifts?”
You get the idea.
I want to collect all of those ideas and share them here. I plan to review products and companies, compile resources, and hopefully provide some interesting “how-to” posts and ideas that I have seen over the years that work.
I don’t intend to exclude non-military-related readers…I think a lot of the stuff that I want to do will be interesting to the general public as well. So if you can wade through the occasional use of lingo and my skewed perspective, I welcome you to jump right in and translate what you see here into something that will work in your life!
And now, I provide you with my first informational offering! I realize that this infograph is focused for a very narrow group of folks, but I think it is something important to share. I honestly would have loved to have something like this before my husband became a Battalion Commander. I run the budget in our house, and if I had just had some time to plan ahead, to stockpile items, to buy things before we needed to pay rush shipping fees….it would have spared me a lot of grief, and saved our family some cash. So I hope this will help some of you avoid the money/time crunch that we seemed to be facing in our house for that crazy two years.
Thanks for stopping by! If you like what you see, please feel free to share, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Comments are welcome and appreciated as well. Hope to see you back here soon!
