Under $100 Linky Party

Summer is flying by for me, you?  And I am feeling a little overwhelmed with everything we "need" to do.  The fact that I have spent several hours in the car this week driving all over the state I am sure has added to that feeling.  Hubby and I talked last night about working smarter not harder.  Not sure what that all entails, but I know we need to work on our time management.  So I am looking for hints and tips on time management and smarter working/life procedures.  I can't wait to hear your ideas in the comments, not as link ups :).  Linkups will be the same as always--fabulous ideas that we can recreate that cost less than $100!

Looking at your links each week is like a mini vacation--I truly do enjoy it and appreciate you taking time out of your busy life to share with us!

Thanks for linking up and for sharing you with us :) !!
Under $100 Linky Guidelines:
1. Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2. Please only post ideas that cost $100 or less--it would be great if you share the cost of your project, but not necessary.
3. Please include a brief description in link up.
4. Grab my Under $100 button on the sidebar and include it in your post or a link to Beyond the Picket Fence so people can find you and more great ideas.
5. Please check and make sure your link works. If it doesn't you can delete it and try again.
6. Please no direct links to sales sites, i.e. ETSY or just a plain ol' commercial site, we are looking for inexpensive ideas we can recreate.


  1. Thanks so much for the feature Becky! Have a fabulous weekend xox

  2. Wow! Thank you for featuring my chicken salad! What a nice surprise.

  3. I know the feeling over being overwhelmed with my 'to do' list. Since I am 'on call' for work I can't seem to have a regular schedule (what I at one time lived by)so I must prioritize and let go of what is not as important as the rest or put it off for another time when life calms down. I also delegate more, if at all possible. Sometimes even blogging has to give, since it is not my income just my enjoyable journal it is easier for me to scale back on it than it is for others but I do know I can get tons more done when the internet is down. I avoid Pinterest and other time wasting sites. It is great for ideas but I already have a list a mile long of things I want to do so adding to it is not healthy and the time spent looking is better spent in doing something on my list. I doubt any of this is helpful but sometimes knowing you are not the only one is encouraging.

  4. Awe, thanks oodles for the feature!!! So sweet of you!

  5. Thanks for hosting, Becky. SO you can just bop on over to Yellowstone? That's a pretty cool place to bop. I hope to go there someday.

  6. Thank you for featuring my bag. Woohoo!!

  7. Good morning and thanks for another link party! I am trying to find cold drinks to make around the house and came up with another-Sweet Iced Coffee-No Calorie (# 97 ). It's an embarrassingly simple recipe, but I'd still like to share it. Hope you like the tutorial. Have a great week!

  8. I hear ya!! My hubby and I both have what we call "side businesses" on top of his full time job and the kiddos, church, summer actvities etc...I agree, it can get overwhelming!! For me 3 things work...lists, setting priorities and scheduled "down time" to re-group. I pray about everything I "commit" too...and say no when I need too. Busy is fun and exciting...but burning out, not so much :) Best wishes to you!! Thanks for hosting, Laurel

  9. One of my favorite things to do is see what you've featured each week from your parties. Thanks so much for hosting all these great ideas.

  10. Hi Becky,

    Recently I've been up-cycling, redo'ing and hacking my way through some fun and inexpensive projects ... finally I have something to share.
