As a kid, my brother and I loved cookies. We’d head over to dad’s for the weekend, and down a bunch of Chips Ahoy with a big glass of milk. Not healthy, but delicious.
After a few years, we started to notice that the cookies themselves were shrinking. The package would say “More chips!” but it […]
Packing means we have to go through everything we own. Sounds daunting, but it’s an excellent opportunity to pare down our belongings and get rid of things we don’t want or need anymore.
