New Merch!

Good morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was wonderful. I got to go to downtown Winnsboro with my family, and I went to a birthday party on Sunday. We had so much fun together!

Over the weekend, I also got some new merch made for Katie’s Koffee.

For this week, my goal is just to stay on track. I’ve got a schedule laid out for my business, and all I need to do is enact it. I plan to make new merch available at least once a week.

So have a fantastic week, and Carpe some Diem!

Weekend and New Merch Coming

Good morning!

I hope y’all are all having a great weekend! I feel like I had so much success this week. I finally had a day (literally yesterday) when I spent much of my time enjoying myself and my family. We went out to see a new coffee shop in town and walked around afterwards, and then we spent the day watching movies, and I was able to work on my phone during any down time and be present at other times. It was lovely! Working at home doesn’t do anything for me if I still have to seclude myself for hours. I don’t want to just work from home. I want to secure my freedom. And I feel like I’m beginning to achieve that. Yay!

I’m looking forward to a fun weekend in Winnsboro, TX. My family and I are planning to spend time in the downtown area – especially in the gaming/nerd shops. It’s been a while since we visited, so that’s on the to-do list.

I’m taking a break from most online things this weekend, and that will leave me with time to both enjoy life and work on new merchandise for Katie’s Koffee. There will be some more mugs (of course), but I am also planning to branch out into shirts as well. If you like coffee, then check out my shop on Etsy. I’m also present on Facebook.

Stay tuned to see some new merch, and keep having a great weekend!

Inspiration and Mug of the Day

Happy Friday!

I’m excited to go get this day! We are going to conquer! (This wasn’t planned, but that’s actually a great introduction for this mug – find it on Etsy)

We are all going to slay this day! It’s the last day of the week, and it’s going to be great!

Piano and Backstage Coffee Lounge


Today I’m working on affiliate products having to do with my coffee business. Unfortunately, there aren’t as many coffee product affiliations as I’d hoped, but then I realized: A LOT of things are associated with coffee shops and drinking coffee. One of those things is art – in this case music.

I think this product is fantastic to share within my coffee shop.

Have you always wanted to play the piano? But you don’t want to spend years on piano lessons with teachers who may or may not be for you. Well, Pianoforall is the solution! It’s an online piano course specially designed to take complete beginners to an intermediate level faster than any other method. YAMAHA even claimed it as the best online course they’ve seen.

Now I want to tell you about Backstage Coffee Lounge in Winnsboro, TX. My husband actually found this place when he was taking a walk the other morning.

It’s small and homey. The people working there are so friendly. It’s not super expensive, and there’s free Wi-Fi. But what really excited me is that they offer some gluten-free baked goods! I nearly fell off the couch when my husband brought me a GF brownie. And it was good. Y’all, I live in Texas in a tiny town of just over 3K. GF options almost don’t exist here. And when they do appear, they’re usually not a baked good, they’re pricey, and they’re not that good. But this brownie was the same price I would expect to pay for any brownie, and it tasted so good!

There are some other gluten-free options there that I want to check out, but also coffee and wifi. If you’re ever in Winnsboro, you should check it out.

What I’m Doing *updated 9-8-22*

Good morning!

Ah. It’s a glorious Thursday. That means tomorrow is Friday. Yay!

But even as I say that, I know that being Friday means nothing to a lot of you. I worked for nearly a year at a job where weekends were the WORST because everyone with any know-how took off, and Monday was a breath of fresh air.

And now, it still doesn’t mean much because I work at home.

I think, after much searching, I have found a game plan for my work. I love tax lien investing, but it only requires an hour or less every few months. For the most part, I am going to be working on this blog (and everything that goes along with that).

On that note, this blog has been about whatever it is I am doing. I began it with the intention of writing about ways to be frugal and help the planet. I still enjoy thinking about those things , but I’ve been moving away from them. And I’m sorry. I do want to keep talking about whatever I am doing, but I do want to get back to my original intentions.

I’ve been talking a lot about passive income lately, and I believe that that is a frugal source of income. It doesn’t save money that you see, but it does save time, and time is money after all. I recently heard someone say that the most productive way to work was 5 hours a day; 2 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 1 hour in the evening to wrap up loose ends and make a plan for the next day. And weekends were mandatory. This was a 25-hour-week schedule. The trick is to work hard at work and completely shut off when you’re not at work. I tried this 5-hour day today, and it worked out well. If I can keep it up, things will go great!

So, now that I’ve figured out what I’m doing, here’s an updated version of “what all I’m doing.”

1. I’m blogging- this is where I can talk about my own life as well as do some affiliate marketing (non-coffee)

2. Katie’s Koffee– this is my coffee merchandise store on Etsy. I have my own merch, but I also use some coffee-related affiliate marketing.

3. I run my house as a SAHM

4. I invest in tax liens (this is a lucrative opportunity that I plan to have become my main focus by 2030)

5. I have an app called Atlas Earth and an app called CashWalk (code:PJNLP) in the background of my phone. These only make a few cents a day, but they also require very little work.

Yes, that’s still a lot, but I only pay attention to the top three things the majority of the time. And I’m so much more organized that it all feels manageable. Be sure to stay tuned for more.
