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.
Mother’s Day is celebrated once a year. Every May, we are reminded to think about our Moms. This year, I wanted to do something nice for my own mom! It’s been a rough couple of years for our family.
We all love the enjoyable things our money does for us: Eating out at nice restaurants, getting a fresh manicure or finally buying that designer purse we’ve been coveting for weeks. But how many of us can say we’re truly informed and savvy about how our money can work for us?
Earlier this month, I decided to cut down on my coffee intake! I literally have stopped drinking coffee throughout the day. Since then, I have had a few of the blended ice coffee drinks from a fast food place but that is about it. When I did drink coffee, I found myself having on average 2-3 cups of coffee a day! I was drinking more and more because I kept feeling tired, exhausted and needed that boost.
Last year around this time, my family and I made a big shift. I was working full time while my husband was working part time and going to school full time. I had just switched jobs and ended up quitting that job. I went back to being a full time stay at home mom, wife and blogger. My husband was able to get full time hours at his job. This was a huge shift for us because I was working full time for over two years while my husband was working part time.

Do you communicate more with people online or offline?
A few weeks ago, the cold was too much! I was sitting in the living room trying to work and my fingers and toes were so cold! I was bundled up in two or three layers of clothing and under two blankets. My fingers could barely move from the cold. Our heater/thermostat only works when the weather is warm. If it is warm outside, the thermostat works perfectly. However, when the weather is super cold outside, the thermostat doesn’t want to reach the temperature we set it to.
My online and offline world collide in so many ways. I use my online world to blog about my offline world, check emails, social media and anything else that is happening in the world. As for my offline world, I do like to blog about it, especially if something interesting happened. They are different in that when I am not connected to the online world, I take the opportunity to enjoy the quiet time.
