How To Plan And Keep A Christmas Budget

December 3, 2015

If you want to be able to afford gifts for every holiday and still all yours bills all year long it's important to plan a budget for christmas, let me help!

If you’re like me yesterday you wrote out the date and realized oh, December, I need to go Christmas shopping! In the past I’ve blamed my lack of timely Christmas shopping on the fact that I was usually still finishing classes the first two weeks of December which left me and every other college student with absolutely no extra curricular activities.

However, seeing how I’ve been graduated for a couple years now I can’t really use that excuse anymore. I’ll have to think of a new one. Perhaps something about saving kittens, everyone loves kittens.

Either way, if you are just now starting, or are just now scrambling to finish up before the crowds really start flocking to the stores, I’ve got a few tips to help you stay in budget this year without sacrificing people’s feelings. continue reading

I’ve always been somewhat of a morning person. But I’ve noticed that as I got older it got a lot harder to get up in the morning. Mostly because I wasn’t happy with what I was doing. I was getting up to jobs I didn’t like, or too early of classes and I just wasn’t satisfied. Never enough time to sleep, to eat, to get ready, you know the drill. Ever since I’ve been blogging full time I’ve forced myself to get up at that alarm of six am.

There are a few things that I’ve realized really helped this whole new process of starting your day early. Since I know a lot of others are not morning people I thought I would share some of the things I do to help get you started in the dreary “am”. continue reading
