I always see the start of a new year as a new start for a lot of things. This is the time I clear out some clutter, make new goals and freshen things up.
I like fancy, don’t get me wrong. But I don’t like paying fancy prices for it. Holiday cards are expensive enough without adding on the personalized service of printing your addresses on the envelopes.
But you can still have fancy holiday card envelopes and gift tags by doing them yourself with your Cricut.(more…)
This year I’m completely changing the way I give Christmas gifts.
It’s important to me to give gifts that don’t contribute waste or harm to the planet. And buying from companies that help make life better for people and creatures around the world is an even bigger win.
Here are a few ways I’m trying to give more eco-friendly gifts this year. (more…)
Things can get super stressful around the holidays. But two things that can help make things a little better are (1) home essentials that are easy to find all in one place and, of course, (2) some extra cash!
And you can get both of those things right now at Publix. (Through 11/27/18) (more…)
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 lie 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.
And it snowballs. Not the good, Dave Ramsey kind of snowball, where you pay off one little debt, then a bigger one and a bigger one. It’s the one where your debt gets bigger and bigger until it rolls right over you.(more…)
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…)
