Life Without A Credit Card

There are some days I am really glad I no longer have credit cards, and there are some days I really wish I could whip one out and charge until the guilt sets in. When the Boden catalog comes, I definitely have mixed feelings.

*Now in US sizes! Love that because the UK sizes always seem to run small to me!



  1. Love Love Love the blue sweater...and the fact that I don't use credit cards either. You go girl!

  2. Oh yes, the love/hate relationship with the credit card. I can't wait to get rid of mine - again. Love the colors in your post!

  3. No CREDIT CARD?!??!?!?! EEEEKKKK!!!!

  4. Good for you not having a credit card! I always look through the Boden catalog, drool, and then realize I really don't "need" anything in there. Then I usually go to Target and find some suitable replacements for 1/4 of the cost! After all, half of the fun is just getting something new!

  5. Being CC Debt Free feels better than any new outfit! :)

    I still keep an emergency CC for smaller expenses, but not seeing those balances every month has been a relief for me too.

    And it's an accomplishment to be paid off too isnt it?

    (I saw on GMA the other morning, the average US family has $10k in CC debt. I almost fell off my chair.... :| be thankful!)

  6. I love Boden but haven't purchased anything from them. Good to know about the sizes. I recently ordered 2 dresses from Mod Cloth and I think they were meant to fit a barbie doll. TINY!

  10. I ordered the blue and green dress last week and it hasn't arrived yet. I am thrilled they not only have US sizes, but also US sizes in TALL.

  11. I am crazy about that dress, but like you I no longer have a credit card--just too much temptation!

  12. I understand!! I am so tempted to shop all the time, thank goodness for no credit cards! I'd go crazy! But I'd have a great closet... ;)

  13. I too have a love hate (I am in the latter stage now) with CC. I hope I never use them again!

  14. You don't understand- I am obessed with Boden. No lie I just ordered 200+ worth of clothes for my 10 month old because they are so cute and stylish. Hubby probably won't like it too much but oh well! ha! Found your blog through another mom blogger and I just love it and your posts are so funny and witty. I just love it! Would love for you to come and visit me if you get the chance. I have a cooking blog with great recipes and I am also doing a Lisa Lenoard jewerly giveaway this week! come and enter!

  15. LOVE LOVE LOVE the blue sweater - I don't charge it either, but some days I wish I did!!

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
