If you need help sticking to your budget the Envelope System works wonders. I first heard of the envelope sytem at my local church, then also after attending Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. It is a proven statistic that people spend more money when paying with credit cards and debit cards verses paying with cash. When you are paying with cash you are more likely to think about what you are purchasing.
How does it work?

When trying to save money or make your money go farther a great place to start is calling your current providers of cable, auto insurance, cell phone carriers, internet provider, etc.
Especially if your contract is up for renewal or close to renewal it’s the perfect time to call around for other quotes. If you are pleased with your current provider and do not want to change do not be afraid to mention other competitors prices or promotions, most companies will… Continue

I used to spend around $400 a month on groceries and another $200 a month on household products (toiletries, diapers, laundry detergent, etc.) Since I began couponing I spend $300 a month on both groceries and household items together and some months I only spend $200 for our family of 5.
Four years ago a group of my friends at church started couponing and telling me how much money they were saving on groceries. I was excited to get involved and give it a go. I… Continue

When thinking of living on a budget or putting a budget together many people dread the thought, the process and think of only restrictions.
Budgeting brings you freedom to live intentionally, and accomplish things you desire to achieve. Be that a family vacation you’ve been dreaming about, purchasing that piece of furniture you have been eyeing, living debt free and so much more.
This post is to encourage you that you can budget and stick… Continue

There are tons of ways to earn an income from your blog, if that is one of your goals. For me, my blog started out as a fun way for me to share all of my tips on getting daily freebies, finding sweet deals, and winning giveaways. But when I lost my job, I decided to focus on the blog as a business, and see if it could help me stay home longer with my new baby girl while still paying the bills.

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

I thought that maybe on this Toddler Tuesday, I would travel off the beaten path of cute baby pics and
videos, to bring you a few tips regarding making your own baby food at
home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I
would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard
how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food
really is. Also, I…

I have to get this off my chest, my two cents about why I understand the whole point behind claiming product reviews, but why I think it’s going to cause an issue when it comes to claiming them as “income“. As a blogger we are required to claim the products we receive for free as income because reality is the product is our payment to write a post sharing our honest opinion about the product.
I get it, the IRS wants to get their part in the tax area, totally understand that. The big… Continue

Most modern synthetic cleaning products are based on age-old formulas using natural ingredients that were passed down through the generations because the chemistry was right. Going back to the original naturally derived ingredients is a way to make cleaning products that work, don’t pollute and save you money. Most are found in your kitchen cupboards. Mix and match with well-chosen and environmentally friendly green cleaning products found in health food stores, and… Continue
