NO Spending January - Unsubscribing!


Before January starts - there are a few house cleaning items that should happen to help you be successful in your NO SPEND JANUARY. 




Today's topic is: UNSUBSCRIBE

I will totally lay it out there for you. Last year when I unsubscribed to a dozen or more "shopping/deal" websites, I again subscribed again a few months later. It was a bad thing to do and I fell for all the idols and wants in my sin nature. I will attempt to unsubscribe AGAIN and stick to it for 2015! 

What I mean by Unsubscribe: you know all those websites that you bought things from at the holidays or the "deal sites" that send you daily updates on what great deals they are offering?  (I do love these sites) I encourage you to click UNSUBSCRIBE (usually at the bottom of the email they send there is a spot to do this) to those sites for the month. Keep a short list of the ones you might want to check in with next month, but for January, out of sight, out of mind!


Since we moved to our home, 8 years ago, I have never really worried about money or my spending habits. My husband provides for his family very well and moderate spending has never been a problem for us. (we live credit debt free, thank God)

Up until last November, I was one who always found a great deal on "stuff". Those deal sites that had those 60% off, clearance, had to have it "stuff". 

Looking back, "stuff" we did not need but "stuff" I thought would improve our lives, lol,well not so much.  

Are you picking up what I am laying down here?


This is your encouragement for the day. I encourage you to UNSUBSCRIBE to these sites.   Trust me, if you decide to go back and subscribe again, they will be there with more "stuff" of offer you. 


Until next time when I talk about ways to save around the house that have helped - Be Blessed and spend Less!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
