Save a few bucks.

1. I love a good deal
2. I love coupons
3. I typically only buy things that are on sale 

I'm a stay at home mom, we live off of one income. We live in Southern California where the price of living is out of control. Therefore, I am always looking for ways to save money and cut spending without losing the lifestyle we love.

Here are a few tips and sites that I use to make life a little more comfy:

1. The obvious, cut coupons. I love the Sunday paper and the coupons that come with it. I only snip coupons for items that I need or know I will use. All the other things that seem like a good deal usually end up making me spend more money that I planned on.

2. Social Networking. Uh huh, Twitter and Facebook are actually helpful other than seeing what your long lost BFF is up to. I follow and "like" several stores and companies because they update what's new or on sale and usually always post special coupons that can only be found on their social networking sites. 

3. Websites. Did you know that several stores have their own coupons at the bottom of their websites. My favorite...Target

4. Groupon and Plum District are great sites that send you daily deals for your area. I've saved tons of money on restaurants, shops and more between those two sites. So fun.

5. My new favorite Amazon Mom. Let me just say that you don't have to be a mom to sign up but if you are then you're about to hit the jackpot and save so much $$$$.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🀦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
