Monthly beauty boxes are having a moment–scratch that, a few years of moments. From Sephora’s Play to Birchbox (and even food versions, like graze and Bon Appetit!), the idea of getting some new products every month is clearly an idea that appeals to consumers. One particularly successful example of this enterprise? Ipsy’s Glam Bags. Not all beauty box subscriptions begin with a quiz to personalize your product selection, but this one does–and at ten dollars a month, it’s an exciting prospect!
I’ve worked a few years in retail and I can tell you that it does come with cool discounts and great people to work with! Retail workers can work long hours or even small shifts, either way, they are not high paying jobs.

We were lucky enough to go on vacation to Disney World a few weeks ago and I still have Disney on the mind! Since we are on a budget, I shopped online for my Disney needs. Just about every evening, upon returning from the parks, I would search online for any sales at Disney Store. You would be surprised at what you will find on sale!
Ah, summertime. Clothing gets lighter, days get longer, and who can resist a good meal made on the grill? Summer barbecues are notorious for greasy burgers, fattening hot dogs and carb-laden potato chips. While there is nothing wrong with any of these things in moderation, eating these types of foods every time you cook out is likely to have you start feeling lethargic and maybe even packing on the pounds. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have a health summer barbecue.

With my son out of school for the summer, I was thinking about washing his backpack but wasn’t sure how. I wondered if it was safe for me to wash his backpack in the washing machine without ruining it. I knew we had a quality backpack.
Last week, we had the lovely opportunity to visit SeaWorld Orlando! We had no idea what to expect. This was our first visit as a family.

Last month taxes were due. In all, we had to pay the equivalent of two months of rent to taxes! Yes, that is a lot of money to us! Two extra months worth of rent in one month, plus all of our other expenses. After paying so much to Uncle Sam, I feel like we are still trying to recover from spending so much in one month.
