One of the things I love most about this time of year is gardening. I am no green-thumb, but I do enjoy the fruit of my labor! This year my garden includes tomatoes, red peppers, zucinni, yellow squash, green beans, and several types of herbs.
Start up costs for gardening is not cheap. Each plant was around $3.50 at Lowes Home Improvement and I purchased 2 large bags of Garden Soil at BJ's for about $5.99 each. The result however will be… Continue

Most of you probably already know this, but for those rare few who, like me, didn’t know, here’s some information. Many bloggers out there want to make money. I know I do. I like to write so I thought I might be able to make a little change through writing. The problem is that now I want to get paid. Don’t we all? Yeah, really. There are many mom bloggers who will tell you not to work for free. So I get it. But how do you get paid by a reputable company? Well, you get a federal tax id… Continue

In an effort to not only conserve energy, but to save money, I encourage you to give some thought into doing some (if not all) of the following things:
- Wash clothes in cold water. I have been doing this for the past year & my clothes are just as clean as they were when I used hot water.
- Turn down your water heater. While it is nice to take steamy showers in the winter, you will find that your body will…

I have previously written about how important it is to prepare our
children, especially once they become teens, to money management
Since schools don't teach this, we must. I recently tried out a new
program called FamZoo
and think it is a wonderful way for parents
and their children, tweens or teens to work… Continue

One way to save money is by eliminating or cutting down on dining out. My family of four has put a limit on dining out to once a week and even with that, we almost always use a gift card, a coupon, or dine at a place where kids eat free.
Where do the gift cards come from?

Yes, there is. In this economy many families have to make that decision. I personally had to file for bankruptcy 7 years ago. This was due to a car accident and separation with my now ex-husband. During the Continue
separation he wanted our new car. The car was only a year old. Since he took
the car I assumed he would pay for the insurance. The car was in both our
names. He did not keep up…

In today's difficult economic times, saving money has become a necessary way of life. Parents (and adults) are packing their lunch everyday to help reduce extra food expenses. For parents of multiples, packing lunches means also having to buy more supplies, which is costly. A creative and efficient way to transport lunches is using the Easylunchbox system.
The Easylunchbox system has been created by mother of three and actress Kelly Lester.… Continue

Well, we did it! My DH and I stuck to our "financial fast" and this weekend, it will officially come to an end. Good thing too, because I only have a few dollars left and we need groceries :)
I did learn something rather interesting about our family during this credit/debit-card free experiment. We eat a lot of fresh food. My fridge is nearly cleaned out but my pantry is still filled with rice mixes, tinned veg and soups. Before I really got into cooking, we use to eat a lot more… Continue

The very second the newspaper hit my kitchen table my children caught a glimpse of the horrifying cover photo of a man's outstretched arm from underneath a pile of rubble, their day and the lives of millions, would be changed forever. Like a punch to the gut, we noticed the victims ring finger was adored with a gold band eluding to the fact that he had a wife and family. My nine-year old stood speechless for a moment and than finally uttered, "Will an earthquake like that happen where we live?"… Continue

January 15th is synonymous with two things: the birth of the great Martin Luther King and the birth of MyWorkButterfly.com. Exactly one year ago on January 15th, 2009, Terry and I stood proudly in the home of Malaak and Chris Rock, who embrace Butterfly's mission, and stated the following in front of Butterfly's amazingly talented contributors, family and dear friends. Here is what we said:
