New Beginings, Old Faves + Kitchen Essentials from

I am what you would call an ‘avid’ online shopper. With four kids, two jobs, and an endless to-do list you can bet your bottom dollar that if I am ordering as much online as I can. We’ve all seen the frazzled mother at the grocery store with 2 carts and a whole slew of children throwing random food into carts…I was that mother.

Plus, the car, the house, the RESPs, the RRSPs and all the bills that come with growing up and we’re officially adulting, right? I think most of us can agree that paying the bills for something that we have used, purchased or plan to use are a part of life.
