Putting words to paper, is a personal expe rience between your thoughts and feelings.

life and sometimes find solutions or answers to a specific problem or concern.

Journaling also help you to keep organize.  Do reward yourself of all  you have accomplished for the day, week or month.

Keeping up with your life by journaling can reward you financially ,if you write down how you are spending your money and what you can do to save more.

The other day, I was at the Hobby Lobby Shop with my granddaughter. She is an awesome artist and works in many mediums.  I had bought her some very special art pens, her art teacher had uses in their art class,  that was a bit pricey and some other art supplies that I needed for myself.   I’ve just started going to this store and just love that they have a lot of products to inspire the creative mind.   I asked the lady  at the register if I needed a membership to get saving or could I check to see if they have coupons. She said, no they don’t have memberships but, yes, that she wait for me to google their store and get their coupon.  My granddaughter got it right away and we used it as well letting the lady I let go ahead of us,  use the coupon as well. We both saved $10.00 on our purchases.  It was amazing! This is an example of  why writing and journaling  what is important to you and to have those notes as a reminder.

You can make a special section of your journal a section just for the coupons you should use for the day and plan how to use coupons for future shopping.

I was impressed to hear Al Roker  of the Today show mention this morning, how he is going to make  journaling a part of his  New Year resolution .  Writing can be a joy to not only you but to others.  We all need to write more and to write letters to others.  I love the concept of those love notes you would place somewhere for your husband or cute inspirational notes you would put in you child’s lunch box.  Believe me, that is where the real love is. It’s in the Pen and paper, ya’ll.   (my southern instincts are starting to come back).  Maybe, we got this whole love thing wrong-to know that words can paint a beautiful picture of deep emotion, is a WOW!

I remember the day when pen pals was so popular.  Now, what Happened to that!

Happy New Year to everyone and Happy Journaling!  Write somebody!  Write Me!  And put some of that coupon savings in a little coin bank!

Starting A Journaling Club

Welcome To My Journal Club
Hello Readers,

      I find keeping a personal care journal fun and keeps me focus about what I need to do for myself. If you are keeping a personal care journal, I’m sure you know just what I mean.
You can make it even more enjoyable by sharing tips and resources not only help you, but with others. You might want to encourage your teens to start a personal journal.
Self-improvement starts with the will to want to change your life. We all have room for improvement.
I came up with the idea to start an online journaling Club. I welcome your comments as a start to make this idea exciting and rewarding. I know that many people lack being a part of a group that they are interested in and here is an opportunity to be a part of what we all need to do for ourselves. Mind you, this don’t exclude men and children. Every human being should journal because it really help in more ways then one.
Your comments to this article will be the beginning of the start of the journaling Club. No fees involved and you can start with a comment.
You can comment about anything relevant to the subject or to bring an idea to the table.
If you are just starting, you might want to know how to start.
You can start with a tablet and ink pens or pencils.
One large 5 subject notebook to last a long time.
    Sticker notes are a great idea to have around you to write notes when your tablet is not around or index cards. You can paste or tape into your notebook later. Keep a note book in your car to write down your thoughts or record it on your cell phone to remind you to add in later.
Your Journal book is yours and so you can do what ever you want with it.
I love making the smiley faces when something is accomplishes or there is something I’ve used when I want to stand out.
So,  have fun with your journaling and see how much your life has improved.
Explore how others are journaling. Pinterest at pinterest.com  have pages of samplies of the various styles of journaling.
