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...

Avoid This ONE Thing That Causes More Problems In Marriages + Printable

What's One Of the Biggest Causes More Problems In Marriages? Cheating? Lying? Working too Much or Not Enough? Or Financial Stability? Did you know that over 50% of divorces are not at all related to sexual unfaithfulness but rather financial unfaithfulness? In today's debt-ridden society, financial unfaithfulness causes more problems in marriages as a result of financial secrets that have been found out. Unfortunately, ladies, it's mostly our faults on the financial problems in marriages (trust me, I don't want to admit that, but it's true). It's just written in our beautiful little DNA that...
Who Would Have Thought A Ripple Safety Device Could Help with Anxiety + Giveaway

Who Would Have Thought A Ripple Safety Device Could Help with Anxiety + Giveaway

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...

I Love Being a Blogger, But I’m Not FREE Exposure for Your Company

I Love Being a Blogger, But I’m Not FREE Exposure for Your Company

I've been a blogger (or even a half-assed blogger) for about 3 years now, and I love being a blogger! This year I made it my goal to start EARNING money on the blog, so that means no FREE exposure for your company. Some of my awesome readers may think it's easy to be a blogger, but I'm telling you it's really not! I don't have hours (despite what my facebook page says). I literally work from the moment I wake up in the morning until 4 hrs past the time I should have gone to sleep. I get 50 emails daily BEFORE 10 am, and that's on a GREAT day! I've woken up and had 150 emails before 8 am...

Remembering Our Special Day with a Custom Star Map + Giveaway

My husband and I have been together for just over 7 years and married for almost 5 years now. WOW, saying that just sounds crazy… MY HUSBAND! Anyway, we’ve always been lovers of the stars, sky, and everything that our beautiful universe gives us every day. Over the past several years, we've been through a lot of deaths in the family, my mom, his grandparents, my grandmother, a miscarriage, and now we're purchasing our first home. I wanted to get something special for my husband to show him how he literally is everything to me, from the stars to the moon, and back. This post may contain...

How Often Do You Monitor Electronic Devices That Your Child Uses?

Have you ever thought of needing to monitor electronic devices that your children use? What websites did your child visit this week?

Did anyone approach your child about sex in an Internet chat room this week? Did someone invite them to run away from home or to secretly...
What We Need To Understand  &  Learn About Mental Health and Suicides

What We Need To Understand & Learn About Mental Health and Suicides

In just 2-3 short days we lost 2 very well known, iconic celebs to suicide. Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain Over the past couple days, I've been reeling in the reality of their deaths. Their tragic life-altering deaths. Not for us, as their admirers, but their families.  This made me really start thinking even more about mental health and suicides, and how we need to help more. Sure we're going to miss watching them on TV or using their products, however, those are just “things”. Their families are going to miss them as their spouse, parent, sister/brother, child, best friend,...
