October 2019 Monthly Favorites, Sneak Peek and Organizing Resources

Happy end of October everyone! We had an amazing no snow October here which is AMAZING. Can’t remember when that ever happened last but I’m here for it. I’ve loved having a fall, so nice. Today to go along with my October 2019 monthly favorites and organizing resources, I’ve got a fun sneak peek to share with you.

Sneak Peek:

This is something I’ve been working on for you to help you (and me!) stay organized this holiday season. I’m so excited about how this year’s free printable Christmas planner turned out and can’t wait for you to get your hands on it. Watch for it coming soon! Make sure you are subscribed to my blog so you don’t miss a post.

Monthly Favorites:

I’ve got a few favorites from the month that I want to share with you next. The first one is a food item that I get from Costco. These Paleo grain-free bars are absolutely delicious. The best bars I’ve had Paleo or otherwise. So good! Have you tried them?

The second item was kindly sent to me from the company. It’s a Milk Frother from Hamilton Beach (affiliate link). I don’t drink milk but use almond milk instead. I was a little skeptical that this frother would work with almond milk as I’ve tried others that didn’t do a great job. But this one worked wonderfully, I highly recommend it. Feels like such a treat on my tea each day. I think this would make a great Christmas gift idea.

October Purge Piles:

Two separate purge piles left my home in October. Woohoo! I always donate to my local thrift store as all profits made go back to support our local hospital. Total win-win. These piles include mostly stuff from my kitchen that I haven’t used in a year and some stuff from our garage. There is always something to purge friends, always! Do it a little bit everyday to stay on top of the clutter creep.

October’s Popular Posts:

Here are a few of my more popular posts in October according to my analytics. My gray hair transition post went through the roof again in October. All these posts on organizing and it’s my hair transition that gets the most traffic, ha! Just goes to show you how many people are interested in doing it as well. I say go for it, I don’t regret it one bit!
