When my finances are not in order - I really feel out of control.
It is so easy to get behind on paperwork, isn't it? A trip to the dentist is probably more pleasant than sitting down to pay bills (no offense to all the dentists out there 😉 ).
Financial stress can come from so many places - not enough money, not enough time, too much spending ... it's a vicious cycle.
So, let's explore some ways that we can
- make more money (yes!)
- budget the money that we have, and
- make informed spending decisions on things we need or love.
How to Make More Money
That is the big question - because there never seems to be enough.
If you have a computer, then you really do have the power at your fingertips to create a side income and build your marketable skills at the same time.
I do this by blogging.
You can learn about how to start a blog here.
I started a blog because I wanted to create a business as a stay at home mom (you can read my story here).
But now I blog because it is a passion of mine - I truly love it.
If blogging isn't your thing - there are still ways that you can earn money online. Here are just a few:

How to Save Money When You Have To Spend It
As much as we would like to save all the money that we have, the thing is that we do spend money, some of us more than others.
So, when you spend money - it's a good idea to find ways to save on what you spend.
That is why we shop sales, use coupons, and send in rebates. Right?
We want to get money back.
Here are some ways that you can "save" while you spend.
- Ebates - get cash back on what you spend
- Ibotta - save on groceries and more
