If you are a homeschooling family like we are, chances are you know the stress that comes with making the decision to homeschool. I worried about not being smart enough to teach my kids, social awkwardness (for me and them), and especially money. Money always seems to be an issue no matter what leaps you want to take in life. However, it shouldn’t be something that holds you back from schooling your children from home. Our family has been homeschooling for 2 years and have managed not only to continue to make money homeschooling but to also make enough to pay off all our debt. I want to spread the word and share with other families how it’s possible to make money while you homeschool. No one way fits all, of course, so I’ll do my best to cover all the bases!
If you’ve been following my journey, you probably know by now that I would never be an advocate for digging yourself deeper into debt. While this is true, I’m still a realist and I understand that life doesn’t always give you the time to get right with your finances before you find yourself neck-deep in a big, fat, financial emergency. These emergencies are a big part of why financial institutions offer small loans; to help get through those hurdles life throws at you. If you are struggling to get ahead and think you might benefit from taking out a loan let me tell you how you can take out a personal loan even with bad credit.
There is a huge movement happening around the idea of no longer letting our possessions possess us and it’s amazing. As with most things, there are different “branches” of minimalism. One type is having a highly modern, chic, clean home design. The other kind, The “Fun Sized” kind, is where you clear all the clutter from your life that no longer serves you. It’s living with intention and purpose. That’s my kind of minimalism. If you’re on the same page as me and just want to have more of the things in life that bring you joy, I want to share with you some different ways you can actually make money with minimalism. Easy ways that your passion could become purpose. Let’s look at how.
Right now in America people are dying with an average of $62,000 worth of debt. Literally dying. Just learning that makes it hard for me to breathe.

spent wasted each year. I’m going to walk you through how to save money. There are 7 simple changes you can make to save over $10,000 per year.
When we downsized our house 2 years ago, we knew we wanted to create a house that instantly felt like a home. We didn’t want to fill our new home with a ton of store purchased items that are in thousands of other homes. Ours should be unique to us and our story. The same goes for our children’s bedrooms. Just like we want our living room and kitchen to speak to us and make a statement, we wanted to allow our kids that chance in their bedrooms too. I thought we would have an easily clutter-free way of life with the shelving in our daughter’s closet. As it turns out, those shelves just turned into more places to shove junk and toss unfolded clothes. We had to do something. So I set out on a mission to start a DIY modern, minimalist kids bedroom on a budget.
