 News and Updates:

(Updated November 5, 2023)

About this section:

I wanted to add this section to keep you updated of any news or activity that is going on behind the scenes. It is also the place where I can answer reader questions, announce upcoming plans, etc. 

This type of news would normally be sent out in some kind of email newsletter. However, such services cost money and at this time, we are not prepared to set up this feature. I know an email newsletter would be a wonderful benefit and we hope to add this service at some point. In the meantime, I will add news here when available. 

There are 2 news items - as of November 5, 2023.

Latest news:

- Missing pictures on old posts. 

A reader has left a recent comment about the archives of this blog.  Yes, you may have noticed missing pictures on older posts.  Here is the reason:  The older files have broken links and need repairs.  I have been trying to fix them, one by one, over the last few years but have not been able to make much progress. Originally, I was fixing the coding on the posts, and then replacing the "broken" pictures that had stopped working.  Finding new pictures for each post was time consuming. Recently I decided to simply remove the pictures so I could quickly clean up the coding and broken links and then move on to the next posts as I had time.   The plan is to eventually go back into the archives and slowly put replacement pictures into those old posts. This will take quite a bit of time.


- Missing posts.

Some of the older posts need some kind of attention.  It may have something to do with family privacy issues, or it may be some old reviews from companies that are no longer in existence.  Some of these posts need to be reorganized or have some things added to them. These have been taken down to evaluate later. This is also time consuming, but the work is planned to fix them and restore as many of them as possible.

I appreciate your patience.

Here is what you will also find on this post:

1. The Blog's content.
2. Information about Reviews.
3. About my "commercial breaks."
4. Copyright information.

This blog is authored by Mrs. (Sharon) White.

 I write about family, home life, cooking, baking, cleaning, thrift, poverty, finances, health, fitness, homemaking, homeschooling, and godly motherhood. The blog is designed to encourage mothers, wives, and homemakers in their daily lives at home.

In the past, I have also posted reviews of products, trips, movies, curriculum, food, cleaning products, books and more. I received these items in order to share my opinion.

Product Reviews

(Updated: October 27, 2023) - Since August of 2019, I rarely do reviews here on this blog.

Some of my previous work:

- From September of 2010 to July 2012, I was on Erin Chase's contributor team at $5 dinners. I wrote a frugal recipe each month, costing $10 or less, with a focus on feeding teenagers.  I resigned from this in July 2012.

- I was a Crew member for the Old Schoolhouse Magazine review team, from April 2009 through August 2011. This was an excellent program and you can see the many homeschool related items I reviewed for them in my Homeschool Parlour.

Affiliate work:

I used to do some affiliate work with Amazon, but am no longer doing this. I am in the process of going through the archives and removing those links.  I am also in the process of removing all  affiliate pictures/ links from "all-posters." I am no longer working with them.   Thank you for your patience!

Commercial Breaks You will see in some of the Archives -

I regularly post about my family and home life. These were interrupted, on occasion, by “Commercial Breaks,” which were notices and reviews.

Have you ever watched old episodes of "Burns and Allen?" Gracie and George are filmed doing a scene of normal family life. In the middle of their show, they would always stop and talk about their sponsor, “Carnation Milk.” This was so charming! For example: Gracie would make a special food and say to her guest, “I used Carnation Milk in the recipe.” I love how they incorporated this into the scene, as if it were normal. Please consider my Commercial Breaks, as something similar to what Gracie and George did in their shows.

Hello Mrs White.
I am thinking of you and your family and wondering how you are all doing.
Here in New Zealand life seems pretty normal though we cannot travel overseas of course which is very hard when you have a child and grandchildren living in another country but i am VERY grateful for everything that has happened here.
I do so hope you and your family have managed to avoid getting Covid and i actually enjoyed being in lockdown here as there was very little traffic and one could hear the birds singing and life was much more peaceful

God bless you
Karen NZ

Mrs. White,
I am humbled and excited by your house account journal documenting the flow of money. I am relieved to have a different way of thinking of the finances. This feels so doable thank you so much for this idea. I truly feel it will ease the burden of "where has all the money gone?"
God bless you and yours!
