5 Practices That Help Me Save Money as a Homemaker

There are advantages to working from home, one of which is that I don't have to commute to work every day or sit through rush hour traffic just to get to my office. Since my husband and I both work from home, we're able to save on certain expenses. However, you can never save too much, right? So here's how I save, in my own little way, as a mom, a wife and a homemaker.



1. Less trips to the grocery: My contribution to the family income goes towards all our food. We used to do… Continue

Day 2 of my first craft show

So Mom and I show up again on Sunday morning. I'm anxious and wondering if I will sell more today....and I'm guessing all the other vendors are wondering the same thing. Since I managed to make enough on Saturday to pay for my booth I'm not as obsessed today with calculations, mostly just optimistic and excited. Continue Reading

Where are all the people?

So it is day 1 of my very first craft show and my booth is all set up....only 15 minutes past start time. A few people start walking by and looking at my items. It takes awhile before my mom and I realize these are all fellow vendors. Hmmm....will people who came here to MAKE money SPEND money too? Well, if they're anything like us, it's a definite YES. My mom is already scoping it out, Continue…

Confessions of a former blog hater

Before I go any further I need to admit something - I used to make fun of people who blog. I apologize if this explanation offends any of my fellow bloggers ;).

     I just didn't get the point of blogging. My thought was, why do people think anyone cares about what they have to say? Talk about being full of it! I mean, it's one thing if you're sharing new data, known facts, you know, useful information.....it's another if you're just spouting out randomness.

     I was really…

Can I work from home?

I had a bright idea one day.....since I have a few things to sew anyway AND there is a craft show coming up.....why not sew a few more and try to start a business? 4 months and hours upon hours of work later I'm realizing a little bit of talent and creativity does not a booming business make. 

I managed to secure a booth last minute at my very first craft show the week of Thanksgiving. The 2-day show was scheduled for the second week of December. Even though I knew I had a lot of work to…

Playing on Facebook Can Get You a Job

Playing on Facebook can get you a job - I'm not talking about Farmville, though I'm sure there must be something for which those skills can be used.  While Facebook is thought of by many as a way to pass the time, the social network has broad business applications if you use it right.  And it's only one of many networking, aggregating, blogging and mini-blogging sites out there, all of which can be used to pad your resume.…

Social Media and Moms - An Introduction

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother.  Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.



One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

Staying Fab as a Stay-at-Home/Work-at-Home Mom

I make no claims about being a fabulous mommy. I am new to the job, and I am loving it, but it is damn hard to fill the mommy shoes!  Working from home, although much more flexible than an office job, has proven to be quite the challenge. Sure, I am getting the hang of it, and loving the fact that I can spend most of my day with my husband and son. The challenge I refer to is in terms of maintaining some "flair" in the day-to-day; after all, we work-at-home moms are superwomen, right? So we…

I Fired My Boss...

When I walked out those doors I said I wasn't going back and I meant it. I didn't know how it was going to happen and apart of me feared facing the reality of what would happen if it didn't but THANK YOU GOD for hearing my prayers... and I mean I PRAYED! I still can't believe it's real!



I just couldn't do it anymore. If I said that part of me wasn't… Continue

Healthy Changes in Our Home: Raw Honey, Gluten-Free Foods, and Natural Skin Care

I wanted to mention a few things I have changed in our home: I started to use raw honey, gluten-free products, and non-toxic, natural sunblock and deodorant.

Raw honey:

After learning about the amazing properties of raw, local honey, that’s all I use now for my tea and when one of us has a soar throat. Honey has been proven to work just as well as cough medicine, so I always have it in the house.

Happy End of Holidays

Tonight The Bear and I went out to do some last minute shopping for some friends. MISTAKE! Big mistake. It was raining and crowded and absolutely ridiculous. Baby Bear was awful, which is pretty typical this

month. Probably because her nap schedule, that I worked so hard to

enforce the first 15 months of her life, has been totally up in the air

while we run errands and I give into her fits of clingy not wanting to

nap-ness. So, let me say, I cannot wait for Christmas to…

The Fake Career Woman

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.)  She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."



But, then, I thought, what the heck, self?  SAHM is a career.



She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…

New Beginning!

I am so excited! My job was eliminated on November 17th! To some this

may come as devastating news. For me, it was music to my ears. Besides

giving me the opportunity to leave a job I didn't like and was

miserable in for the last 4 years, now my dream of becoming a

work-at-home mom is a reality. I simply love my new schedule. I get to

take the kids to school. Then I come home and start working at about

9:00... feet up, tv on, jammies on, laptop on lap. I take… Continue

Becoming a stay at home mom part four....

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.





We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.

Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…

Dueling Personas

With all the kids tucked into their beds, I make one last round to ensure their slumber is real and not just a ploy to get me to let my guard down. With eyes closed on all three accounts, I head toward my bedroom to meet an old friend. A confidant that existed in a time when wearing tight jeans was by choice, shaved legs were a priority and life was fueled by a plethora of energy. I climb into bed with my laptop, engross myself in an episode of Sex and the City while plunking my eyebrows and…

How to Easily Teach Your Kids to Save, Spend, and Share Money

By Anne Carr 

The other day we were in Target and an automated piggy bank made by a big brand caught our eye. Our youngest daughter really wanted it! The piggy bank would count all of the money automatically as your child put more and more money into it. On one hand we thought it was…
