Last week I mentioned my new found love of frugality.  (In case you missed it, you can check it out here.)  Today, I am back at it with some ideas that focus on inexpensive family fun. Continue reading

Legacy Box Review – Part One {+ a promo code!!}


Last year during my move I found some 8mm tapes in a desk drawer.  It took a few seconds to realize what they were but when I remembered it brought a HUGE smile to my face.  Back in the Summer/Fall of 2001 I had a video camera.  I was 18, I bought it on a whim (and a credit card) and took it with me EVERYWHERE.  This was back before reality TV was a thing and way before it was an obnoxious thing.  I think the only TV show like that that even existed at this point was the Real World and it was probably early days.

Adventures In Frugality

Adventures In Frugality

For all (or most) of the years of my adult life I was in a relationship with my Husband and we shared finances.  In some ways that was a great thing – two salaries!  Woo Hoo!  In other ways it was a struggle.  We were two people with different financial goals and when one of us would go over budget it would totally impact the other.  When we separated I was scared to be on my own financially.   Continue reading
