An appaholic is someone who has at least 3 screens worth of apps (not including the pre-installed ones) on his/her phone and/or tablet at any given time. You ever heard that saying, "They have an app for that!"? Well, an appaholic takes that to heart.…Continue

I am not sure if our son will ever want to go to college. He's a long way off from that day, and by the time he is old enough for higher learning, college may or may not still be seen as necessary for a successful career. Additionally, he has announced that he is building a transporter in our loft, and if that works out I see no reason why he should need college learning for a career. What I am saying is: You never know.…Continue

I know when summer is here it is easy to get caught up in vacation mode, relaxing, and spending more time with family and friends. It is easy to see others posting on social media pictures of where they are visiting and it stirs you to want to go away too. I want to encourage you to stick to your budget even though it is summer time. Stay on track with your financial goals if that…Continue

When I meet with people about their budget, many times people think there is no where else they can find money to help pay off debt, or save for a vacation.

So many diapers, wipes, and diaper cream in our future. It is a bit daunting when you look at how many diapers babies need between birth and potty training... which happens around month 4 right :)
If you consider that babies use an average of 10 diapers a day for the first 5 months and 6 diapers a day for months 6-12, in the first year of his life Oliver will use around 2,912 diapers... I just peed a little bit.
I decided to start early on…

On Sunday morning, my son greeted me by saying, "Good morning! I get my allowance today, right?" After his morning routine, I handed him his cash for the week and he went to distribute it into his three jars. He then starting telling me what he was going to use his spend money on (a Batman action figure of some kind) and what he was going to use his save money on (a…Continue

Am I the only one disgusted by the whole idea of Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving?
For the past few years, I've listened to stories of people waiting on long lines and camping out to save a hundred dollars on electronics. You see them on the news, right? Reporters interviewing someone standing alone days before a sale even…

When I hear the word Campbell’s my mind goes back to a simpler time. A time when the biggest decision of the day was what type of cereal I should have for breakfast. When my day would consist of play and not coming home till the street light came on, when there were no iPhones, emails to check, or bills to pay. When I hear the word Campbell’s I think of childhood and warm tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, warm cheesy chicken casseroles, etc. Campbell’s was definitely a…Continue

I can’t believe that summer is almost over with and my kids will be heading back to school in less than a month. It seems like this summer has flown by. I have enjoyed having my kids at home with me so that I could spend some extra time with them. A few weeks ago, I noticed that the stores were already stocking the aisles with…Continue

I tend to start hobbies that get neglected when life gets in the way. Some of the hobbies I picked up last year were very beneficial to my family and our bank account. Last year I started to coupon. This "hobby" saved my family huge amounts of money that I meant to keep up. As most of my hobbies I keep putting it off and off again until I wasn't sure where to pick up again.

Although this might not sound very succulent, I was once an avid coupon clipper. But, quite frankly, I got tired of having coupons pile up at the bottom of my purse and getting all ripped and soiled and the whole thing just became too much of a hassle.
Now, before you mention that there are accessories to organize coupons, you should know that I also had a coupon folder to help organize but when I changed purses, it did not always find its way into the one I was using. By the time the…Continue

Okay I'm going to totally gush on this post so if you ever thought about ways to save money keep on reading. Here's my check list: I'm a stay at home mom, we just moved to a different state and we just bought a house. All three of those things could probably tell you that we recently spend a HUGE bulk of our savings and we need to save every new penny that comes in our doors.continue
