Apps to Earn a Little Cash Back – Ibotta

(This post contains affiliate links. Please refer to our policy page for details.) Continuing my series on cash back apps that I use, the app I’ve used the longest is Ibotta. I would compare it to online coupons in a way. So far I would say it is the most lucrative app I use. (Again, I’m not getting rich. Every…

My New Blogging Assistant

Nearly a year ago, a precious little baby girl changed my whole world when she made me a momma. Since she is nearly a toddler, I think she is old enough to become my new blogging assistant! I’ve been back and forth about whether to include my daughter in my blog. It really was a tough decision for me, considering…

2017, Where Have You Gone??

As probably all of you know, tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  A day devoted to food, family, and football.  But it is really so much more than that.  While we should be thankful all year round, it is easy to get caught up in life and forget.  And when I say “we,” I can really only speak for myself. I have always…

Realizing the Natural Beauty Around Us

This is slightly different from my other posts, but I thought something new might be a nice change of pace! The other day, I was driving home from grocery shopping. Since we do not live extremely close to any kind of grocery store, I only go shopping maybe once per week, sometimes even less. It forces me to really compile…

My First Yard Sale Attempt

This year, I decided to venture into the fun world of yard sales! Each July, our “town” has two days of community yard sales. I knew I had some clothes and cleaning products that I no longer had use for, so I decided to try to have a yard sale. My first very own yard sale! When I was young,…
