Finances are a difficult thing to talk about for me right now. It’s not that our current situation is embarrassing. I’m not super secretive about money.  I understand the basics of budgeting, interest rates, how to buy a stock, and other money related topics. We haven’t been avoiding paying taxes on some secret income either. … Continue reading "Budgeting While Building A Home" The post Budgeting While Building A Home appeared ...

The numbers are finally in. After some careful crunching and only 1 or 2 start-overs, my first February Expense Sheet is completed. Notice I’m not calling it a budget because we most certainly did not budget anything this month. As our first foray into the world of tracking our money, we spared no expense in … Continue reading "February Expense Sheet" The post February Expense Sheet appeared first on . ...

Reselling on eBay is my main side hustle, mostly because of the flexibility it offers this busy stay at home momma. And I actually enjoy doing it too–bonus! If you’re looking for a legitimate and flexible way to make extra money on the side, eBay may just be your jam. Of course, to get started, … Continue reading "Seven of The Best Places to Find eBay Inventory" The post Seven of ...

My husband says I’m always scheming. No, I’m not a super-villian–what he means is that I am always looking for a new and better way to make extra money. I’ve tried a lot of different methods to pull in cash over the years and some have worked, but many have failed. Today I’d like to … Continue reading "Four Tested and Failed Side Hustles" The post Four Tested and Failed Side ...

Back in 2012, a class action lawsuit was filed against a former employer of mine (we’ll call them Rob Blevins, or RB) claiming that they were guilty of “wage theft”. The action went on to specify that RB had incorrectly classified their assistant managers as exempt from state and federal overtime laws under the Fair … Continue reading "Would You Sue for Wage Theft'" The post Would You Sue for Wage ...

I’m not going to claim to be a chef. I’m not even going to claim to be a home chef. I’m just a person who cooks for their family most days. I try to focus on money saving meals, and I’d say I use a recipe about 50% of the time. The other 50% of the time, … Continue reading "Money Saving Meals #1: Pasta & Beans with Chicken" The post Money Saving ...
