Week 6: Whole House Organization: Trash and Recycling

I have been dreading this week. Trash and recycling. I absolutely cannot stand – intensely dislike – our trash/recycling situation where we currently live. Though Taylor from Home Storage Solutions 101 offers up a plethora of tips relating to this week’s organization challenge…ugh. And when I say intensely dislike, I rather mean “hate”. But since I was a little girl, ‘we don’t use that word’. Which is fine. It’s an ugly word and I shouldn’t be this vengeful on the trash and recycling situation OR my lack of (whatever) … Read more…

Amazing Love and Support

Amazing Love and Support

Today, I want to remark about the amazing love and support that’s been happening since this September Month of Giving began. Here we are with only 6 days left in the month and boy HOWDY what a crazy ride of a roller coaster… But the love and support of so many has been simply amazing. You may not know about any of it other than having to read me go on and on all month long but there has been an outpouring happening all over the place for … Read more…


My Husband is Right, You Know…

My Husband is Right, You Know…

I don’t often mind it when that happens. When my husband is right, you know? But in this case, I’m rather disappointed, a little sad, and on some days throughout this September Month of Giving I’ve been downright ticked off. Oh, not at him. He’s just stating the facts. And he’s right. I said. I should probably explain just what I mean here before we all get a little more lost… When I began this September fundraising effort, 30 days to raise 400, I naively thought it might … Read more…


Hitting Goal for 3 Young Soccer Giants

Hitting Goal for 3 Young Soccer Giants

You can’t just be good to get in with La Roca Soccer Club; you have to be really good, even great at playing soccer. And these three young boys are soccer giants. Of course I might be slightly biased; they are my nephews, after all. But I also know how hard each of them worked to get there and the amount of time and effort the whole family put in to making it into this prestigious club in Layton, Utah. It wasn’t easy. And it’s not cheap. But … Read more…


What a Roller Coaster – Meet Briana

What a Roller Coaster – Meet Briana

This WHOLE THING began because of Briana. This September Month of Giving. And what a roller coaster it has been. Up and down and all around – the stress alone is enough to… …perhaps I had better start at the beginning. Briana is another dear friend of mine who recently found herself (along with her husband, cat, and bird) in a situation beyond their control. Seriously beyond their control. To the point where they were looking at possibly being without a home or having to move to another … Read more…


To ALL the Haters Out There – Meet Lyn

To ALL the Haters Out There – Meet Lyn

It’s been really hard to contain my anger in regard to what I’m about to address. To all the haters out there, and I really dislike intensely the use of the word hate; however, you all seem to be intent on spewing it… Hmmm…this is already not going well. All month long here at Informed Sharing, we’ve been trying to bring awareness to a group of folks who need a helping hand. Each family has a Go Fund Me campaign and they are – separately – asking for … Read more…


Four Fundraisers – Why Not Just One?

Four Fundraisers – Why Not Just One?

It’s overwhelming isn’t it? Four fundraisers. Why not just one? Because there are so many folks out there who need help and who aren’t getting it for whatever reason. How could I choose just one? I want to help them all – ALL the people in the world who need a helping hand. Now that would be overwhelming. So here’s what I did for this September Month of Giving… I looked around – and I didn’t have to look far – and saw that a few (or four) … Read more…


It’s NOT All or Nothing

It’s NOT All or Nothing

GOOD Morning to you and You and YOU way over there. Just a quick post to let you know that I’m still talking about it. The 30 days to raise 400. And I wanted to make sure you understand that it’s not all or nothing in this September Month of Giving, either. No matter how many subscribers we gather here at Informed Sharing, this will be the number that is divided among the four Go Fund Me campaigns we are supporting this month. Though, if you read this … Read more…

Don’t Want to Subscribe? Fine!

I don’t blame you. Who wants another email every day, clogging up their box, filling up their already busy life with probably (you don’t know, can’t be sure since you haven’t taken the time to check exactly…) something you’re not interested in, anyway… Right. Don’t want to subscribe? Fine! And thank you. Sincerely. By NOT SUBSCRIBING to Informed Sharing this month, you are SAVING ME MONEY. 🙂 Really. I thank you, my husband thanks you, my kid thanks you. We’ll probably just blow it on food or field … Read more…
