Things We’re Not Doing While We Get Out of Debt

I’m kind of obsessed with being out of debt. I would love to say that we are working hard to be out of debt just for the sake of being responsible, but I have some really crazy financial goals. I want things, and being out of debt means we’ll be able to...

Getting Our Financial Priorities Straight

Tonight, Ian and I had a hard talk. I’ve been trying to follow the Dave Ramsey plan, but while I’ve really been terrible about leaving money in savings. Last month, we had an error with our new property management company that left us really tight for a...

Switching to Reusable Feminine Products

I’ll never forget when I walked into Whole Foods, past the essential oils and into the feminine care products aisle. A younger sister of mine (who shall remain nameless) was getting close to needing “those things.” My mom wondered if she should just...

Credit Score Rehab

Blogging is kind of a terrible job. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love it! But if you’re like me and you’re a little bit of a no-holding-back kind of person then you just can’t but share some of your dirty laundry with your readers, no matter...

Blueberry Muffins for the Freezer

This year I have been learning how to do things completely differently since Logan was born. It’s amazing how much adding another little person into the mix changes the schedule and routines of everyone in the house. One of the things that I have kept as a part...

My Shopping Routine that Maximizes Savings, Rebates & Cash Back

My shopping routine is a little intense, but since I’ve started using it religiously I’ve been earning a lot more rebates, saving a lot more with coupons, lowered my grocery budget by 25% while eating better food, stopped shopping in the grocery store...

Why I Don’t Shop at Multiple Stores to Save Money on Groceries

I don’t particularly enjoy grocery shopping, but I don’t hate it either. I used to spend a lot of time making a grocery list for multiple stores, driving multiple places and doing extreme couponing to get the best deals. I wanted to save money on groceries...

Boba 4g Baby Carrier

I’m a huge fan of baby wearing. When I was pregnant with Autumn, we even put my youngest sister in the Moby Wrap just to see how we could make it work and it was awesome. I loved using the Moby Wrap until Autumn got too big for it and I wished I had something I...

Delicious Baked Salmon

I really like cooking shows. When I get on a cooking show kick, I also usually end up getting inspired to make something different than my usual meals like Red Bean Taco Soup or our Freezer Enchiladas, basically anything I can make in my cast iron or my InstantPot....

Grilled Chicken for the Freezer

Back in January when I was working my booty off to get prepared for baby Logan I had what started off as an amazing week. I made a very ambitious meal plan and got two flats of boneless skinless chicken breasts to make a nice selection of new adventurous meals. Fast...

Our Family’s In-Home Aquaponics System

I’m not great with gardening. I’m not a terribly consistent person, so I struggle with keeping plants alive. People and pets I’m great with! Plants… not my thing. So when I saw the Back to the Roots Water Garden I got really excited. I liked...

SwagBucks Math – How Much Are Your SB Worth?

I really love SwagBucks’ rewards program. I know a lot of bloggers talk about it how much they earn. I haven’t earned a ton, but I don’t really put a lot of effort into it these days. Over my lifetime I’ve only earned just a little over 6,000...

Working from Home with a Toddler & Baby

Working for yourself always has challenged and struggled, but can I just say that working for myself from home with both little people at home has been a huge adjustment! I have been asked more times than I can count recently how I work from home with both a little...

Becoming a Work from Home Mom

My family has always been one who had a business going. At first, it was Homemaking911, which is where I began to learn about WordPress and all of the bloggy stuff. Then we owned a wheat business and eventually I moved out, got married and started my own business. I...

How We’re Using Rebates to Go Debt-Free Faster

I really like shopping online. I love the convenience, the ability to do an instant price check without wasting gas, and I don’t have to time my shopping trip in between naps, feeding children and the dozens of other things I do on a normal day. One of the...

30 Days of Simplifying 10 Items a Day: Week 1

If you’re following along with the series, yesterday I started talking about how I plan to have 30 days of simplifying 10 items a day. Yesterday was my day 1 and I spent it making a list of all the things I wanted to accomplish, including the things I wanted to...

30 Days of Simplifying 10 Items a Day: Introduction

I am overwhelmed. I had all of the best intentions while I was pregnant to pare down and get all of the clutter out of my house before Logan was born, but that just didn’t happen. I know better than to make those assumptions because decluttering isn’t a...

Helping a Toddler Adjust to Life with a New Baby

Having something, or someone there just for them. When Logan was born I had a babysitter lined up to come play with her during the day the week. She has a babysitter that she really loves to spend time with and so I knew it would be a big treat for her to have some...
