Favorite Things: Tina Steinberg Designs

On Christmas Eve, I was waiting in the car with my sleeping child before heading in to Mass. I was playing around on my iPhone and noticed that the amazing Tina Steinberg had just posted a $50 gift certificate giveaway for the first ten people to leave a comment on her Facebook page. I was stunned and rushed to make a comment since I adore her charms and necklaces. I was the second person to comment (yippee!) and I am eagerly awaiting two charms. A little Christmas gift for me and I chose a charm to give to my mom. You might find something amazing here too -- Happy Shopping!

Happy New Year!

December and January are expensive months. After the flurry of spending, what are you planning for your financial well being in 2011?

I've got a few ideas on my mind.

1. Save for more long term fun! For example, set aside more money for summer camps, weekend trips, and surprise getaways.

2. Invest in our infrastructure. Make plans for those needed window coverings, think ahead to replacing furniture, and rearrange existing furniture and household items to make the house feel new and fresh.

3. Keep focused on quality. One great pair of jeans is almost always better than two just average pairs. Gather together some nice items that will last for a few years. Look for super sales on super stuff.
