Remember Sunday dinner–gathering with loved ones or friends to share a delicious, home-cooked meal that was savored slowly?
Can you hear the conversations–the puns your grandpa would make, the chatter of aunts and grandmas, the antics of your favorite uncle?

Sticking to a budget is hard, especially when you love to shop. I have 8 budget-friendly shopping tips that are sure to help you maintain your financial goal while still indulging a bit!
I am TERRIBLE at budgeting. Terrible with money in general really. It has been an ongoing joke with my family since I was a teenager. When it came to bills, my motto was “out of sight, out of mind.” Savings account? What was that?! Of course, this didn’t mean I didn’t like to SPEND money. I’ve always been one to indulge in the occasional session of retail therapy. Not that I am a big spender, but all those little occasional trips to Target and the mall certainly add up!
Garage Sale, Yard Sale, Rummage Sale, Moving Sale—call it what you want—it is that time of year again.
I consider myself a bit of a yard sale connoisseur, I love rummaging through people’s old treasures. Even when I don’t plan on buying anything, I enjoy sifting through the remnants of history and nostalgia. That, and sometimes I find some really cool stuff.
Having my own garage sale has proven to be almost as much fun—but a lot more work! That said, I have picked up a few tips to help anyone have their best garage sale yet!

I am passionate about many things.
When I was in college, I tried to find a way to fit them all into a single dream job. Teaching seemed to be the thing I was called to do. I loved every minute of lesson planing, I loved the challenge of trying to find new and better ways of presenting the content, I loved building relationships and rapport with my students, I didn’t love grading . . . but who does?
