It seems crazy that I used to avoid travel so often because it was so expensive. True, depending on where you go and what you do, travel expenses can definitely add up. But the thing is, if you are savvy with your budget and know the right ways to make your money work for you, travel can be crazy affordable! On our recent couple’s getaway to Nashville, we managed to actually slash our expenses in half. Here’s how we stuck to a budget, saved money and still had a flippin’ blast in Nash.
My husband, Tom and I recently took a 3-day trip to Nashville. It was super last-minute which meant we really had to stick to a budget that wouldn’t break the bank. While our food and drinks budget allowed for a little wiggle room, our aim was $100 per day. Some days were more, some days were less and we ultimately stayed under budget and had an amazing time! Now I’m breaking down for you how you and your partner can plan a foodie tour in Nashville even when sticking to a limited budget!
I used to be that mom who spent hours in the kitchen trying to prepare the perfect, healthy meal for my kids. Now, as a work from home, homeschooling family, we often don’t have a ton of time and the last thing I want to do is clean the kitchen after a big meal. That’s why more and more I turn to rotisserie chicken recipes to make for dinner. So, if you are a busy person looking for quick but healthy(ish) meals to make then this is the post for you!
I used to be that mom who spent hours in the kitchen crafting and perfecting recipes and you know what? I loved it. It was great. But, then I started homeschooling and running my own online business and time in the kitchen (plus the dishes) was not on my to-do list anymore. In the last few years I have tried to perfect ways to be lazier…without upping our budget too much. I’m gonna break down for you my sneaky hacks for how I started cooking less while also saving more money. Because, mama, I got your back.
I have always loved stuff that told me more about me. Haha. Personality tests are my favorite. They help me think about my own strengths and weaknesses on a deeper level and allow me to better understand those around me. That’s why I wanted to make this simplicity thing a little more…simple based on your specific enneagram type. Scroll down to find your enneagram and read a little about yourself and get a few ideas about how you can practice minimalism and simplicity for your enneagram.
Trying to keep a house decluttered with kids can almost feel impossible. That’s why I broke down the best 3 times a year to declutter with your kids. We follow these times in our home and it has helped to combat the clutter and keep me a little bit more sane. Hopefully it can do the same for you.
