My Favorite Products for Making Life Easier
This whole product line offers an inexpensive way to update your cabinets, and make your space more usable. I have these in my kitchen, and my bathrooms, plus I installed them at my mom’s house. They make a huge difference in how you’re able to use your existing space.
This product revolutionized the way I pack for travel. I hang it in my closet and pack in the things I want to take on the trip, and then drop the whole thing into my suitcase. When I get where I’m going, I lift it out and hang it up again for easy access to everything. No more digging through my luggage to find what I need.
This stuff is magical. It took a few applications, but it made my 30-year old kitchen and bathroom cabinets look great. It covered over worn areas in the finish, and added color to faded spots. It worked better than I expected, and looks great.

My Favorite Books on Money and Life Topics
I’ve mentioned this book in several posts. Author Jean Chatzky offers some great insight about attitude changes and habits that can be practiced in order to thrive and prosper, even in tough times.
When I first read this book by Dorie Clark, I was looking for some ideas about how to make a business successful. But there was so much more information than I expected, about how to stand out in life in general, and be noticed in your career. Great read.
For anyone facing a change, or turning point in life, this book by Jenny Blake is a great guide. It provides a method to build on your existing knowledge and experience to take the next step, rather than starting from scratch.
Smart Women Finish Rich
This book by David Bach is a great primer for gaining confidence with money management. It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s just a good guide on how to get your finances under control. I’ve read multiple books of this type, and I found this one to be well written, easy to understand. He also has a version for couples.
The Investment Answer
This book was recommended to me by my accountant, who is also a financial advisor. It is a short, easy read covering the basics of investing. Perfect for beginners.
