Blitz-It Friday # 34: new shoes



Have you guys ever noticed how hard it is to “do stuff” in bad shoes? I was trying to “run” this past weekend, and I couldn’t even make it 25 yards without my shins hurting. And then I realized… I need new shoes!


So, I bought them AND a package of beef jerky. Why beef jerky? I was starving and needed to get home and eat lunch. (you had to know that, didn’t you?) But the exciting thing is: I did not come home with ANYTHING else! No pretty sweater, no cool dishes, nothing, nada, nope.

And whilst I am humbling myself and telling the WORLD how hard it is for me to even be in retail stores, I can honestly say it is probably the only thing that has “saved us” this semester from going into debt. God promises to provide for our needs, but he doesn’t always allow for a bunch of “extras”. And it is this mindset that has forced my creativity to combine itself with frugality to produce the cool slippers, hats, and other stuff out of recycled things that we bought very cheaply or already had on hand.

Am I saying that YOU should not go into retail stores? No. Go! Especially if you can afford it, go. Our economy needs help. But if you really can’t, then stay home and make stuff out of recycled sweaters, OK? Being financially stressed out is not having an organized mind. Then you have to PUT IT ALL AWAY when you get home and FIND NEW PLACES for everything, and that does not lend itself to being uncluttered either.

And you’ll have less to BLITZ when you have less stuff. Which reminds me, are you enjoying the blitz posts? I mean really.. just kind of skip these if they are LAME and you do not want someone to tell you to clean up your house each week, OK? My feelings are not going to be hurt. But, if you want to keep at it for another week, I think I will also.

For the weekend, I plan to:

1) do the laundry and put it away

2) iron 10 things (or more)

3) make homemade peanut butter

4) work on slippers for gifts

5) clean up the craft room (again)

Do you have a plan for the weekend? If so, would you like to share it with us, link up. You can link up a plan or the result of a plan or both. I’m flexible.

Also, blitzing with kids is a blast if you are an airchair general.

Glad you could join us! Now you have MANY choices about using the blitz. You are welcome to do/ try any or all of them…. and so many photos to choose from!

And for you guys who like to move slowly, try plodding.
