I LOVE garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales Mom 2 Mom sales - anywhere I can find a deal. I might be an old lady trapped in a 27-year-old body, but I can't help myself...I'd much prefer repurpose something than buy it new.

One thing I have learned as a new mom: the crazier I act, the more Little K will laugh. And believe me, I act crazy...from making toys out … Continue Reading..
I am a gal who loves to be on the go. Living on a budget can sometimes hinder my ability to just do as I please. I always like to say if I can help my family save money in one place, we can spend the leftovers doing things we love to do like eating out, going to local attractions or maybe, one day, … Continue Reading..

This past Saturday was great. It was one of those days the hubby and I decided to not make plans for because we just don’t get a ton of free weekends these days between events with friends and family. So we decided to let the day lead us where it wanted to go… In the morning, I drove around to … Continue Reading..
For this week’s VlogTalk, I’m talking about three of my favorite outfits...because I couldn’t just choose one.
