Gift giving can be stressful and expensive. And the last thing you want is to spend money on a gift that your loved one won’t really use.
I always try to give my family gift ideas that I will get a lot of use out of. That’s why I’m filling my wish list this Christmas with crafting supplies that I can’t afford or just won’t get around to buying for myself.
If you have a crafter in your life… or if you’re the crafter looking for a way to treat yourself… here’s my ultimate list of Cricut accessories, supplies, and vinyl that all crafters would love. (more…)
I’m obviously a big fan of saving money. But I’ve never liked the idea of having to buy something you didn’t already want, to get a discount or money back. In my opinion, that’s not a good deal.
But that’s why I love the offer this week at Publix! (9/13/18-9/18/18) (more…)
Chances are, if you know about Pusheen, you’re obsessed with Pusheen. And if you don’t know about Pusheen, prepare to become obsessed. My daughter absolutely loves the pudgy little cat and she got me hooked too.
This cat loves food, being fancy and being lazy. So it’s pretty much my spirit animal.
Here are some must-have gifts for the Pusheen lover on your list, including yourself, and they’re all super affordable. (more…)
You can have great intentions to spend less money. Then enter children. And boredom. And whining. Next thing you know, you’ve shelled out hundreds of dollars to entertain the family and not have much to show for it after.
Here are some ideas to get you through any weekend, no matter if you’re trying to save lots of money or a little money. And if you’re attempting a no-spend weekend with that wallet completely on lockdown? You can do that too.
But first thing’s first. You have to plan ahead to avoid some basic pitfalls. All good plans can implode the minute the first person (kid or adult) gets hangry. (more…)
Debt can make you like awake at night feeling like you have a weight on your chest.
It can be hard to breathe.
It can wreck your health and your marriage.

Long before we moved to the Gulf Coast, I had a deep love for the ocean. Every vacation, every spare weekend we had, we tried to spend it at the beach and in the water. But the home to so many incredible and majestic creatures is being choked by our use of plastics. (more…)
I take money very seriously. I also take fitness very seriously. And because I work out 5-6 days a week, I need a lot of workout clothes because I DO NOT want to do laundry any more than I have to. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for good quality fitness gear at great prices. I NEVER pay full price for any item, not even the essentials like a great sports bra.
Below you’ll see some of the awesome outfits I’ve put together for just about any type of exercise.. running, weight training, tennis, etc.. and each outfit is under $40, some are way under $40. (more…)

I did something crazy the other day. Something I don’t do very often. I washed and fixed my hair.
