Stuff-It-Pink_detailWe’re working on a move out of state, so we have decided that moving into an RV is the way to go. Sound odd?

  • It will reduce our expenses, allowing us to save up for the cost of the move.
  • It will reduce expenses, allowing us to pay off the last of our debts and get our financial house in order.
  • It will reduce the cost of the move, since we will not need a huge truck or a storage unit.
  • It will make us mobile, in case the new job requires Wolf to attend military training in one or more other locations before our final destination.
  • It will free us of the clutter monster, and give our minimizing efforts a huge push forward.

CollageSo we have begun the purge, selling off the furniture, clearing out trash, and donating boxes and bags full of stuff to the Airman’s Attic.

I’ve also been on the hunt for some solutions for keeping the small spaces organized in the RV.

I found a company that had so many great organizing items for home, car, and travel… that I decided to join up!

Take a peek at my new Clever Container website, and see for yourself.  I even put up a Facebook Page!

And to top it off, I’m kicking off my new business with a Mystery Hostess Online LAUNCH Party!

If you are on Facebook, you can visit the Party Page.  But if you’re not, that’s okay, too!

Here’s how it works:

Help kick off my new business venture, and you may be the one selected (randomly) to be the party “Hostess” and earn free products and more!

** Every $50 order earns a free set of clever Car Hooks (a $12 value)!

** Earn 1 entry into the Mystery Hostess drawing just for placing an order. PLUS earn an additional entry for every $25 you spend. (A total of 1 entry for a $10 order, 2 entries for a $25 order, 3 for a $50 order, etc.). You must place an order to earn any other entries into the drawing.

** Earn 1 entry into the Mystery Hostess drawing for booking an online / catalog party of your own!

** Earn entries for inviting your friends to the party! 1 entry for inviting 1-15 friends, or “Sharing” on your wall; 2 entries for 16-30 friends; and so on!

** Earn another entry for each and every friend you invite who places an order. Make sure they comment on the Event page (or email me) with, “YourName invited me, and I ordered!”

Just visit: https://www.mycleverbiz.com/tiffanyh/shop/

Browse the products, or flip through the online catalog. As you complete your purchase online, the very bottom right corner will ask you to “Select Party”. Just select “Mystery Hostess online LAUNCH Party!” and you will be entered in the Mystery Hostess drawing.

SHOPPING IS OPEN NOW! This party will *end* at midnight on March 12th, so get your order in…

hooksI’m so excited to begin using the items that I received in my New Consultant Kit!  And I’m going to be placing an order with this party, myself, because there are a few more things that will really help out my organizing efforts.

If you’d like a paper catalog, feel free to request one through my Clever Container website (HERE).

And if you don’t win the Mystery Hostess drawing?  You can host a party of your own — entirely online and/or with catalogs — and earn free gifts all for yourself!

milli3Well, sometimes things work out better than you could have imagined. That was definitely the case after I wrote my post on Securing Headcoverings!

I discovered a lovely online store called the Millinery Shop.

Like many places, they offer a wig grip product:

Slipproofit! This SLIP-NOT WIG GRIP band is worn directly on your head under a hat pretied, scarf or wig. The crushed velour material holds everything in place. No more will your WIG -HAT – SCARF – PRETIED BANDANA slide back. This Velour item is extremely comfortable to wear with an adjustable velcro closure in the back.

But they have several wonderful differences from “many places.”

If you’re inclined, they offer fantastic wholesale discounts for volume purchases. Since their prices are already quite low, I imagine this would be a terrific business opportunity.

But more important for the rest of us: They produce their own merchandise, so they can make it however they need to!

This means that their products – including the wig grip – are offered in a fantastic variety of sizes. It also means that they can offer customization if needed.

Wow!

The Slip-Not Wig Grip, for example, has options for fabric (velour or cotton/velour), color (black, brown, champagne), and size (S, M , L, XL).

And look at all the other stuff they offer: from their array of pre-tied bandannas, snoods, hats, and other headcoverings, to gloves, iron-on accessories, and more.
hair
As you know from my prior post, size is a problem for me. However with this variety, I found myself with an overabundance of choices! At 24″ head circumference, it looked like I could easily use either a Large or an Extra Large!

They were kind enough to send me both – and they are, in fact, both comfortably usable! And even doing a crazy hybrid of wearing a tichel and having it back off my forehead a bit, they held the slippery scarf in place solidly.

I will definitely be shopping more for myself at the Millinery Shop, and I recommend it to you enthusiastically.

Want to try it out?

When I think of the times I’ve sewn a big ruffle onto the bottom of Jewel’s skirts…

Or passed on a skirt that might have been good for me “if only it was a little longer”.

Whew!

As a tall family, that is a constant battle.

I knew genius the moment I discovered Make Me Modest. :)

A mother and daughter team designed and created these amazing little numbers, which are thin and lightweight in the top portion, then add length in a great variety of colors and styles.

They’ve even got some new things working, like sleeve extenders!

Make Me Modest sent me an extender to review, made to my specifications. They were amazingly helpful and patient in figuring out how to accommodate all of my various questions and special requests.

The extender is amazing! The design is clever, the workmanship is excellent… Even the packaging was a treat to receive.

I did decide, after trying it on, that I had picked entirely the wrong extender for the skirt I wanted to extend. Ah, well. I’m definitely ordering a different one, and one for Jewel as well!

The good news for you is that I’m going to give away the extender I received!

Sadly, the lovely packaging is gone, but you will receive a like-new (tried on but never worn or washed), white, Eliza style extender, Size XL, made extra long to 36″, with extra coverage upwards (to account for a slit or kick-pleats in your skirt).

I received the above-referenced product free from Make Me Modest for the purpose of a possible review on this blog. I will ship the prize directly to the winner at my own expense.

Winner will be contacted by email. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.

We don’t go swimming much… Public beaches and water-parks are just too immodest for any of us to feel comfortable.

But I do want the children to learn to swim… For safety when they may be near water (fishing, boating, etc.), or even the occasional time we may want to go swimming – in a quiet “swimming hole,” at a friend’s house, who knows?

Read the rest of my Swim Headcovering Review from seasons past… Then come on back for a brand new giveaway!

What, back so soon? :)

I was delighted to discover Princess Modest Swimwear back at that time. An Israeli company, they provide modest swimwear with an eye towards traditional Jewish modesty requirements – including headcoverings.

I purchased one of their fabulous swimsuits in Aqua and Black, and ordered the headcovering to match. Basically, it’s an ordinary lycra swim cap with a black triangle “bandanna” of peachskin microfiber (the quick-drying stuff that men’s swim suits are often made of) sewn along one edge. You can then wrap and tie it in a variety of ways.

My only concern was one that is, while of course not “unique,” certainly one that most of you needn’t worry about – it’s One Size Fits All.

As I explained to someone recently (someone else who sold clothing items, who should have known better!), being tall makes a lot of difference in everything. Someone who is six feet tall is simply proportionately bigger in every respect than someone who is five feet tall. So, while of course everyone is shaped differently, overall the taller person will tend to have a bigger shoe size, a bigger wrist measurement for bracelets, and – yeah – a bigger hat size. (And on top of that I do have quite a bit of hair).

As I described in my original review, I decided to purchase it, with the clearly stated intention that I would take the chance, give the owner feedback on the fit either way, and pass it on to bless someone else if it turned out not to fit.

That’s where you come in. :)

BUY IT!

Order your own stylish Swim Head Covering directly from Princess Modest Swimwear.

At the moment they are on sale for $8 (normally $14), with Free Shipping in Israel, or $5 Shipping anywhere else in the world.

WIN IT!

One lucky As For My House reader will win their own Aqua/Black Swim Head Covering

This is the one that I ordered to check out. It has only been tried on, never worn out of the house or around water…

The winner will be contacted by email, and must respond within 48 hours, or a new winner will be selected. I will ship to your U.S. mailing address only. You may choose to pay the difference if you would like insurance, or shipping to anywhere else – Canada, Costa Rica, or wherever!

I purchased this item of my own initiative; I was not compensated in any way for this review. This review has not been approved or edited by anyone.
I was “disclosing” before it was cool. See my Review Policy for the full scoop.

One of the long-time listings on our Modest Clothing Resources page is the Modest Mom. (That’s her photo) She has lots of lovely skirts, and now other modest clothing, for women (including maternity) and girls.

Of course there’s still my pet peeve: Why don’t more skirts have pockets? But I digress.

Things are changing over there! Business has been good, and she’s expanding and revamping on an entirely new website:

Deborah & Co.
“Fashion Without Compromise”

To celebrate, she’s holding a HUGE giveaway, with over $250 in lovely prizes – all going to a single winner! The package includes a $50 Gift Card to Deborah & Co., plus prizes from Scentsy, Lilah Rose, and many others.

Stop by the Modest Mom blog for easy Rafflecopter entry.

Then head over to Deborah & Co. and check out the lovely new website, and the wonderful modest clothing she has to offer!
