Danny and I are so happy to announce that he recently received his green card! We filed for his permanent residency with USCIS back in October of 2015 and received an approval June 22, 2016. So many doors have opened up for us now that Danny has his green card, and the last few weeks have been full of planning. Now that we’re out of limbo we can officially start
On September 15, 2015 I was married to my husband, Danny when I was just seventeen. Not old enough to vote. Not even old enough to have a sip of alcohol on my wedding day. So if I couldn’t even apply for a credit card, how in the heck did I get married so young? When I met Danny I was already working a full time job and attending college.
Maybe when you think of a frugal lifestyle, the show Extreme Couponing comes to your mind. Or a homesteading family with homegrown vegetables in their pantry and livestock out on their land. Maybe you think you can’t be frugal because it takes too much time or you have no idea where to start. The truth is YOU can be frugal, and you don’t have to be extreme to save money!
Recently my husband and I had something terrible happen in our neighborhood, even more so for the people directly affected. Our neighbor just had her apartment broken into, and all her valuables taken. Thankfully someone noticed something was up, and got the license plate down and description of the car before they got away. It seems like these thieves are making their way around town because someone I just met
I started using Fiverr to make money as a seller back in November of 2015. This was right after I quit a job I knew I wasn’t right for and I needed cash fast. I thought to myself Hey, why not? I’ll try anything once. Fiverr’s main marketing strategy is getting people to buy from professionals who sell their services starting at $5. You can get anything from transcription to voice
Coupons are like money to me. When I find an expired coupon in my binder I always kick myself for not using it fast enough. Same goes for the times I throw a bunch of coupons I know I won’t be using in the trash. I’m not wasteful but I am a little lazy so I came up with easy ways to distribute my unused coupons to people who really
Ask anybody who knows me and they’ll tell you I love a good piece of chocolate cake. If I could eat chocolate raspberry truffles everyday I would (the ones I like are hard to find). I’ve always wondered how I can eat healthy while satisfying my sweet tooth, but it’s always a major challenge for me when I start snacking throughout the day. The following are six ways to eat healthy
I use sheet masks because I like how affordable and easy to apply they can be. I was very excited to try these Skinfood sheet masks because they seemed like they contained healthy ingredients for the skin, and I read great reviews on the internet. I purchased a set of ten sheet masks off of Amazon because they were a great price for the ten mask sheets I got. I
I officially said goodbye to disposable pads three months ago. I use reusable cloth pads for a number of reasons. It’s better for the environment, more affordable, and safer for your body. I only used reusable cloth pads for my last three menstrual cycles so I feel comfortable explaining to you a little about I use cloth pads and how I clean and store them. The ones I use are from
I’ve bought and sold items across various platforms for two years now. My current obsession is Mercari, the latest buy and sell app. It’s still in its beta version meaning no seller fees! This can change at any time so I’m taking advantage by choosing to put my items up for sale first on Mercari. If the item doesn’t do well there I’ll take it to another platform. If you’ve
