How To Stop Being Embarrassed By Household Clutter

Read it here: http://snailpacetransformations.com/how-to-stop-being-embarrassed-by-household-clutter/

Dear cluttered friend, I have been there too. In the past I have looked around my home and thought, “No way am I inviting so-and-so over! This place is too much of a mess and I can’t possibly get it looking good enough for visitors by….”

But I am happy to say that those words hardly ever come out of my mouth now. Please don’t get me wrong, I am still dealing with clutter, but it no longer stops me from inviting people over.

How To Give Acts Of Service Gifts People Will Really Use: No More Coupon Books

Read it here: http://snailpacetransformations.com/how-to-give-acts-of-service-gifts-people-will-really-use-no-more-coupon-books/

Have you ever gotten a printable coupon for a free night of babysitting from your neighbors, but you can see that they live really busy lives so surely you shouldn’t bother them by asking to cash it in next week. Or perhaps your spouse gave you a pack of coupons for back rubs, but the mood never seems right to cash it in–I mean seriously, if my husband is not in the mood to give a back rub I don’t want him anywhere near my back.

Don’t get me wrong–I love the whole idea of printable act of service coupons, so much so that I even have a Pinterest board devoted to them. However, when it comes to actually giving or receiving them it seems either like I am too thrifty if I am the giver or that I am being demanding if I am cashing them in.

Luckily there is a much better way to give the gift of service as a Christmas gift.

12 Months To An Exceptionally Brighter Financial Future

Read the steps here: http://snailpacetransformations.com/12-months-to-an-exceptionally-brighter-financial-future/

You are staring at a pile of bills. You want to get out from under them, but you don’t know how. You know you need to track spending, make a budget, get out of debt, get an emergency fund and on and on and on. It seems like improving your finances is just as overwhelming as living with a mound of bills.

It isn’t! At least not when you break down each step that you need to take to a brighter financial future into a small goal, taking time to make that one goal a habit before moving on to the next one.

How To Read More Than A Book A Week Despite Being Crazy Busy: Plus 10 Great Reads

Read it here: http://snailpacetransformations.com/how-to-read-more-than-a-book-a-week-despite-being-crazy-busy/

This year is quickly coming to an end and with it the tally of how many books I read in the past 52 weeks is also ending.

This year the number is just shy of 70. A good reading year for me. I actually read more this year than last year despite being crazy busy during some months.

Before I give you my list of my top 10 reads for 2016, let me answer the question many of you are thinking–how on earth do you read that many books in one year?
