If you look up ways to build your savings on the internet, you'll get an abundance of articles that suggest making extreme lifestyle changes.

Healing Thoughts Blankets for Those Battling Cancer + Giveaway

Healing Thoughts Blankets for Those Battling Cancer + Giveaway

When I lost my mother almost 2 years ago. Everyone kept telling me, “Time heals all wounds.” That may be true, however, there is NOTHING that will heal the wound of losing a parent. I recently had hysterectomy surgery. It's something that my husband and I talked about quite often since we lost my mom. She was supposed to get one at my age, but she was “too busy raising kids” and she didn't want to have to take time off work in order to heal. There was one problem with her thinking. 25yrs later, we found out she had Endometrial Cancer. That cancer (if you're not...
How to Start a Successful Home-Based Business

How to Start a Successful Home-Based Business

Ever since I was probably about 19-20 yrs old, I’ve attempted to start several home-based businesses! I’ve sold makeup, leggings, and now I sell decals, shirts, mugs, and more. Something that I have learned over the years is that you have to WORK at your business, in order to succeed, which is why I haven’t been very successful prior to the decals and such. Budding business people are always on the hunt for useful tips that they can use for their home-based business. More and more people now are interested in creating a home-based business because of the endless opportunities available...
7 Easy Things You Need to Think About Before Purchasing a Home

7 Easy Things You Need to Think About Before Purchasing a Home

When my husband and I started getting serious about purchasing a home we had a lot of things to consider. When we sat down, we calculated what our current income was, what bills we currently have and worse case scenarios (job loss, injury, etc). Getting a mortgage is a very important decision, so you have to make sure that you get the best mortgage for your needs. Despite this, many people simply opt for the first deal that looks attractive without really shopping around. If you really want to find the best mortgage for your needs, then you need to carry out a number of checks at each...
Correctly Budgeting Your Grocery Bill Can Save You Hundreds a Month

Correctly Budgeting Your Grocery Bill Can Save You Hundreds a Month

Your grocery bill is the most flexible area of your household budget. A few of the first things I do, whenever we're in a crunch for money, is look at how much we're spending on food, crazy items that we don't need or use, and how much we're spending at the grocery store.  It's usually around birthdays, holidays, or a party when I really start to freak because those times are usually when we're spending the most. That's when we (myself actually) starts working on budgeting our grocery bill. I usually go over our budget MONTHLY, but there are times I slack off a little and think, “Yo, I...

Who Would Have Thought This Safety Device Could Help with Anxiety

Who Would Have Thought This Safety Device Could Help with Anxiety

I already have anxiety, so going out ANYWHERE without my husband or at least one of my kids, is horribly frustrating and throws my anxiety through the atmosphere! I recently had a blogger event about an hour away from home and it was just for me. I couldn't take my husband or a kid. JUST ME! Sure, I could go into “work mode” and sometimes that works, but what am I going to do BEFORE “work mode” sets in? I knew I was going to be at least 30 minutes early, so I wanted to walk around town a little. I was an anxious mess. I was looking around me like crazy, making sure...
How We Acquired an USDA Home Loan for Our First Home

How We Acquired an USDA Home Loan for Our First Home

Do you have the credit, but not the funds to purchase your first home? Do you want to get out of the rental rut? I’ve talked a few times in previous posts about how my husband and I have been working really hard on our credit, how we’ve been working REALLY hard towards purchasing our first home. In May, we applied for a USDA loan through our realtor and we didn't have “high” hopes, but we were surprised and got approved. It was a relief but at the same time, kinda scary. Were we actually going to do this? Actually, OWN Our First home? Will we be able to do this? Well, we started...
Fins Up For a Fun Experience at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium

Fins Up For a Fun Experience at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium

This past weekend, the family and I had such a fun experience at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium which is located on the West Bank of the Flats right in Downtown Cleveland in the historical Powerhouse building. Before we even stepped for into the Aquarium, we were able to admire the beautiful West Bank of the Cuyahoga River. I couldn't get a great shot, but we saw a plane take off from one of the buildings, observed folks board the Nautica Queen and checked out artwork from local artists on buildings. If you've never been down to at least the flats, you'll need to check it out solely for the...
