the most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us! thanksgiving truly snuck up on me this year, it’s so hard to fathom that it’s next week! but I know a lot of us are looking forward to black friday shopping, too. I didn’t start utilizing black friday deals until the last few years but I will tell you it is the best way to save on your christmas shopping! obviously there are too many black friday deals to count (let alone post!) so I am sharing items from my christmas list with you and where you can find the best deals!
I’m the first to admit I know the benefits of healthy eating – but man, oh man, do I know how hard it is to do when you’re on a budget! some weeks I can allot more money towards groceries and it doesn’t feel so bad, but there are other weeks I feel like I’m going to turn into a Ramen noodle if I don’t chill.
I’m not always the best with my money, but the one thing I always have people asking me is how I manage to spend so little on groceries. on average, I spend about $100 a month on my groceries. granted, my big meal of the day is lunch and I tend to snack around it – breakfast and dinner are generally small. but, for those of you that are looking how to make healthier choices and save a little extra money, here’s how I meal plan + prep around a tight budget.Continue reading “healthier eating on a budget”

But when close friends started getting involved with network marketing structured companies and explained the process to me, I realized that I’d be crazy to not take the opportunity. You usually pay a fee in order to “start your business,” and after that, the process can be as active or as passive as you want. However, be prepared that if you yourself are going to be very passive with the business, you can expect your income to mirror that. But if you’re passionate about the products and what the company has to offer, I promise, the distribution aspect of the job will come naturally (but the bulk of your success truly depends on how well you build your team).Continue reading “21 reasons why I chose to get involved with network marketing”
