The State of My Back Yard

April 22, 2015

That photo is not my back yard, but mine is equally as much of a disaster, if not more. When I bought my house in October 2012, both the front and back yards were a total disaster. Prior to me purchasing the house, it had been a construction site as the house that stood before … Continued

Confessing to my Family

One of my extended family members has had some serious financial issues in the past. I won’t go into too many details here, but they all came to bite her in the a$$ the week before Christmas. Her family can’t pay their bills. They are SEVERAL months behind in rent, utilities, and more, and yet they … Continued

Shoeaholic No More Turns 1!

December 23, 2014

Wow! Not to sound cliche, but time sure has flown since I first started my blog December 23, 2013.

Hi all! It’s the eve of Thanksgiving and I’m getting really excited about all the delicious food I’m going to consume and the fun I’m going to have whooping butt playing games with my family.

Weekend Recap: I met a Blogger!

October 8, 2014

I’m well aware of the fact that it is now Wednesday and it’s been several days since my fabulous weekend, but I’m still on a high from it!

Paleo Challenge

August 29, 2014

When the summer first started, my capris were so loose that I had to pull them up constantly (but they don’t have belt-loops so what’s a girl to do?). Which I was excited about, but I didn’t want to rush out and buy new ones because I’m still on a strict budget to try to dig … Continued

There are several different tactics and ways to help avoid buying unnecessary things, aka “wants” or even “impulse purchases”. Since I’m trying to get out of debt and simultaneously unclutter my life, I really have to avoid these things like the plague.
