Ah! Valentine’s Day – the time of the year that has the world divided.  Everyone has an opinion. Some people hate it and some people love it and everyone will tell you their opinion on it. I like it as a concept, but hate how expensive it has become. The legend behind Valentine’s Day is quite beautiful, although probably not 100%  true.  The story goes that St. Valentine (probably not […]

Me and my husband were driving last weekend when I saw a billboard for a ‘Gentleman’s Club’ where you get a FREE lunch.  I told my dear hubby, “No matter how much we are trying to save money we are not THAT frugal.”  Of course it was a joke, my hubby wouldn’t go to a place like that, but it got me thinking about being frugal and being reputable. For […]

Those of you who know me will know that I am the biggest Disney freak!  I love going to Disney World so much, and I love the movies.  I hate to say it, but I am very disappointed with Disney now. My beef with Disney is about the Disney Channel and the questionable morals that I see on the channel more and more frequently.  I am not saying that television […]

I have developed a way of keeping my bathroom mirrors clean all the time that is easy and you can do in a couple of minutes.  I think this way is good because you don’t have to run for paper towels and Windex (by the way vinegar works great for windows as an alternative!).  You only need things you would usually find in your bathroom anyway: a squeegee, a loofah, […]

One thing I found you can do, even if you don’t have much money, is baking.  In fact, it can save you money!  It’s a good way to entertain the kids, too, if you get them involved.  With my 18 month old I just give him a bowl and spoon, but a little flour in a bowl and let him imitate Mommy.  If you have older kids you can sit […]

It needs to be said: you should think with your head and avoid thinking with your heart.  You might be saying…”it is impossible to think with your heart, your heart is the organ that pumps blood to the brain” and that might be true.  But then again not true because people think with their heart all the time and it usually gets them into trouble…money trouble!

Many of you know that this is not my day job (well technically it is my day job, but then I have a night job, too).  I am not working 24 hours a day, but sometimes it feels like it. Being a MOM is a 24/7 job.  At 5pm though I pack up and go to work.  This is my schedule because The Scotsman (dear hubby) works in the daytime […]

With a growing number of choices for cell phone plans, it is time to think critically about your cell phone plan.  Do you really need the one you have or could you find something better somewhere else.  A lot of new cellular providers on the block have shaken up the market with some heavy competition.

Some of these are no-brainers, some of these tips you are probably already doing, and some just won’t factor into your lifestyle.  I get sick of seeing lists of things you can do to save money that say to stop drinking your fancy cappuccino and don’t get your nails done.   This is the list for people who don’t have a morning coffee habit and aren’t spending the cash on their nails!

About two weeks ago I went to one of my favorite deal hang-outs, Aldi.  (And if you haven’t been to Aldi yet, you should go, although that’s a post for another day!) Aldi has some incredible deals on every variety of food, with no frills but amazing prices.  I got a little caught up in my Aldi attack this day. Going into summer is the time when obviously fresh fruit […]
