So with that in mind, I wanted to share some helpful personal finance tips that may give you an AHA! moment and get you on track to financial freedom.
Keep in mind; I by no means am a financial expert. I am just an average woman, wife and mother enduring the some of the same financial conflicts… Continue

If you want to make a little bit of extra money on the side, as well as get some freebies at the same time, you may wish to try mystery/secret shopping.As well as shops I do in town, we ventured out for a few jobs I had in another town- an hour away. It was worth the drive. For one job,( and I can't mention which places I visited), I was given a 10 piece chicken supper with the works plus paid $10. For another job we visited a grocery store-I got to evaluate a few departments, shop for $15… Continue

Are you an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, musician, or writer who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and to use social media to your advantage. His book, Be The Media
, goes into much detail about how you only need 1000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!
Be The Media
is one of those book you want all of your family and… Continue

It seems that we’ve spent our entire marriage saving for something. When we first got engaged we were furiously saving for a wedding in six months. After we got married we began saving for a house for two years. In 23 months we had saved enough for a down payment on our first house and we just celebrated one year in the house.… Continue

Here are some truisms about “starving artists:”
- Most artists will indeed continue to produce work throughout their lives whether or not they ever receive payment, sufficient compensation, or recognition for his or her work, simply because they want to.
- However, most artists like to be paid for their work rather than continuing as a “starving artist.”
- Some artists “go commercial,” attempting to combine their…

I don't know about you, but I have come to believe there is no such thing as "extra" cash. Somehow, just when it looks like I'll actually have something left at the end of the month, a pipe will break, the roof will leak, the basement will flood, or I'll need a root canal. Extra cash? I think not.
I do, however, believe in additional cash. This is money that can be available without having to take on a second job. If you, like me,… Continue

Dear Mom Bloggers,
be aware of SCAMS
. I just received a friend request in my MBC mail box regarding a large sum of money that I could make if I would only send them money for shipping and handling.
I joined this site so that I may develop my Mommy Networking Skills and learn from others that are trying to help other Mommy's. I choose not to post the language that this individual used but if you receive an offer, as such, in your inbox, PLEASE

One of the first things my husband and I always thought of when we had the "baby talk" was how expensive babies are. How many things they need, how much it all cost, and how little money we have to buy all these things. We thought we couldn't "afford" a baby.
Wrong. Besides the basic necessities - clothes, food, car seat, diapers- babies really don't need a whole lot. The baby industry is huge, and many things are completely unnecessary. Having a baby certainly doesn't have the bank,… Continue

New automobile emissions standards
are on the right track. President Obama
is serious when it comes to fighting our global warming dilemma, creating new eco-related jobs and reducing our ongoing dependence on foreign oil. By 2016, all auto makers are required to make new cars and trucks get 30 percent better mileage
. It will be a gradual phasing in process with the 2011 new automobile models. Initially, it will cost the consumers a bit more per vehicle, but these “new… Continue

Stuff. Possessions. Things
. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!) There may be a psychological underlying reason why you hold onto your stuff, but no matter what the reason is, there are ways to help reduce and reuse it.
Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:
Birthday party favors
. When my girls come home from birthday parties, the flood… Continue

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.
First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue

What a great day! (Except for the black ant invasion that greeted me this morning in the kitchen, ugh… Do you think 8 traps will do the trick, fast?) I got so much done, it’s beautiful outside, I had a massage . . .
I made a phone call, finally ordered some new contact lenses, and paid some bills this morning, so I got that out of the way. After playing with the babysitter for two hours, Landon took an extended nap (with the help of more… Continue
