Please join us for FREE Frugalista Ladies Night Out on Fri, May 20th at 6:30pm-8:30pm at The Pointe Outreach Center, Crystal Lake for another detailed organizing presentation with Nancy Borchert!
Last time Nancy presented her organizing tips, she discussed getting started on BIG organizing projects and how to effectively tackle them, as well as some useful websites, technology, and advice on organizing. (No worries if you missed it, you can still get the handouts at this next presentation.)
During this presentation, Nancy will focus on small/quick organizing tasks, rethinking & customizing your space with your learning style & your habits (and those of the people in your household) in mind, showing us how to identify our own “kryptonite” that causes disorganization/chaos, easy tips & tools for getting organized, fun DIY ideas and cheap fixes for combatting clutter, and more!
There will be giveaways and informational handouts…perfect for your spring cleaning! Bring a friend! Please RSVP on form to left.
Eating well is the baseline for everything else: better rest, healthier heart, clearer thinking and a prosperous life.
Nature is so smart; it put medicine in the food we eat. Healthy food provides us an opportunity to nourish our bodies and minds. The problem is, with this fast-paced world, we are not eating real food any more. We eat food-like products which promotes dis-ease.
According to a 2009 World Health Organization report, 80 percent of all cases of premature heart disease and Type 2 diabetes and 40 percent of all cancers can be prevented by simple lifestyle choices that include following a healthy diet, engaging in sufficient physical activity, and avoiding tobacco products.
And there are some serious financial gains to be made by living healthier. Less medication and healthcare costs means more money in your pocket. Being healthy ensures your ability to earn a full living all the way up to your retirement age. If you can’t retire early, you want to take advantage of these years so you’ll have enough money before and during retirement. And as a healthier person, wouldn’t it be great to be able to enjoy your retirement more fully?
Join us on Friday, March 11th – 6:30pm-8:30pm to learn how making better food choices to heal and promote health, happiness and prosperity for your family can begin as soon as your next meal!
Event is FREE! Appetizers and beverages to be served PLUS Raffle prizes. Bring a friend for an extra chance to win a prize!

Heather's Frugal Living classes have taught me new ways to save money. Even my husband is impressed with all the new ways our family has found to buy groceries for less. For the first time we actually have a vacation budget and a way to save for a family vacation this year thanks to Heather and all of her great ideas!" - Patti H.
"I was super excited when Heather introduced the financial binder concept to me. It is a perfect tool to keep bills and payments organized for my household." ~Tiffany G.
"I have been attending Heather's Frugal Living class for over a year. I always benefit from the "hot deals" discussion at the grocery store, retail stores and outlets as well as organization tips.Heather has taught me how to change my mindset and truly live a frugal but rewarding life. If you are looking to find ways to save on your necessary expenses you have come to the right spot.
One of the main lessons I have incorporated from class is the importance of creating and sticking to a budget and planning for major events including holidays to avoid last minute costly expenses.
If you are willing to be creative you can learn how to make your own cleaning products which is good for the environment as well as your wallet." - Sharon W. current Frugal Living attendee
“I just finished making my DIY laundry detergent and wanted to let her know...and thank her for the (list of) ingredients! She really is a great presenter with lots of good info!” – Comment from 'Savvy Spring Cleaning' participant.
"Heather has a wealth of knowledge on how to live a frugal life. All her tips are practical and easy for anyone to use. I believe one of the best aspects of these tips is that you don't have to sacrifice your lifestyle to achieve your goal. I especially liked Heather's DIY cleaning product recipes. They are green, effective, and inexpensive. Not only were the frugal living classes educational but I also enjoyed the fellowship with everyone involved. I looked forward to each meeting and can't wait for the next session to begin." - Frugal Living attendee
