• Valentine’s Day..Cutting Through the Commercial

    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. [caption id="attachment_488" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="I Heart You"][/caption] The legend behind Valentine's Day is ...

  • We’re Not “That” Frugal

    [caption id="attachment_462" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Photo by WilliamHartz"][/caption] 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 ...

  • Disappointment with Disney

    [caption id="attachment_443" align="alignleft" width="207" caption="Has Disney Gone Too Far?"][/caption] 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.

  • Best Way to Clean Your Bathroom Mirrors

    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 ...

  • Frugal Fun: Muffins

    [caption id="attachment_373" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Mmmmuffins!"][/caption] 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 ...

  • Money is matters of the brain, not heart

    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 ...

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 […]

Extreme Couponing?

Written by Jennifer On June - 29 - 2011 1 Comment

There is a show on the TV lately called ‘Extreme Couponing’.  I’ve never watched it, although I probably should to see what it’s about.  First of all, I do coupon and will cover couponing in later articles.  Although I’ve never watched the show I think it’s a bad idea and puts couponers in a bad light.  I’ve heard many negative comments since this show has come out. First of all, […]

Cleaning Day!

Written by Jennifer On June - 28 - 2011 0 Comment

Somehow I managed to muster an exclamation point there, but in reality cleaning makes me go my face go all SAD-like.  Have you ever noticed that when you have to clean that social media becomes so much more interesting?  Suddenly you find every thing that is trending super relevant and have to click on all the links.  Maybe it’s just me.  I’ll be on Facebook reading everyone’s statuses, or reading […]

Written by Jennifer On June - 21 - 2011 2 Comments

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 […]
