Whether you are married or dating, there are a ton of ways to be a cheap date without staying home. Come on people, we have to put in a little more effort than that, am I right? Yeah, maybe we live in the days of Netflix and chill but I’m also a firm believer in trying a little harder than that. Here are some practical tips anyone can use to save money on a night out.
If you are trying to be frugal and more sustainable and still have a full functioning kitchen that you can use, I’ve got it all for you. I spend most of my day in the kitchen. Meal prepping is a must-do in our house and it’s very rare for me not to make an entire meal from scratch. Not only am I a big cook, but I work from home and the kids are homeschooled. This means I need a kitchen with all the essentials that doesn’t take up a ton of space or dwindle our family’s budget. So, I decided to share all the little ways I have made a smaller, less expensive kitchen work for me. Not only that but, I aim to keep things more environmentally friendly as well. Here are some of my personal choices for a more frugal and sustainable kitchen.
Chances are most of us have known our talents and our likes since we were kids. Personally I have known that I’m a “good” artist since I was 5. Winning coloring contests told me so. In high school I excelled in my interior design class, art, speech class, writing and poetry courses and basically all things artistic. Except drama. I was terrible at drama. I didn’t do well when people were watching but you put me in front of my bathroom mirror with a hair brush and I can sing you show tunes until the cows come home. (Don’t know where that super old reference came from?) Even though I knew all these things, I still didn’t have a whole lot of direction as to how to make it work in terms of a career. I’ve spent most of my life feeling aimless until one book opened my eyes like crazy. For the first time in forever I was able to see my talents and they were SO OBVIOUS. I knew these things about myself, but I didn’t know they were my strengths. When people ask, “What are your strengths?” Answers are generally something like: “I’m a people person.” “I’m a hard worker.” Well, one book flipped those boring answers on their behinds and got real. I want to share this awesome self help book with any aspiring entrepreneur or even just a person who has felt like they have spent too many years just wandering.
For the majority of my life I had a negative mindset about money, making money and saving money. But I had no idea how to change it or that it was even wrong. I wanted money, that’s for sure. Money was the cause of most of my stress, but I just couldn’t seem to get a handle on it. I know I wasn’t alone. In fact, America has hit an all time high in credit card debt; around 1 trillion dollars of debt to be exact. How can something we think about so often, something we want so badly have this negative affect on us? The truth is, like most workings of our mind, we just have to change the way we think about it. Finally, I feel like I’m at point where I finally have a healthy money mindset and it is not at all what I imagined it to be. There are steps and understandings I had to take to finally get a grip on my out of control money habits. So let’s talk about creating a healthy money mindset.
