Welcome to my new series, Q&A Tuesday! Each Tuesday throughout the summer I’m going to take a money/budget/frugal living question from my blog, YouTube, or social media, and answer it live on Facebook! Then I will post it on YouTube and blog sometime later in the week…which sure makes the “Tuesday” part of Q&A Tuesday
Don’t miss anything!
Happy Thursday, Freebs! If the carrier pigeon never delivered the message, I’m posting new videos every Thursday over on the ol’ YouTube.

Lately, one of my most common requests is for posts/videos about our favorite quick and easy meals. I’m certainly no Rachael Ray but I do believe in cooking for your family (whether you dread it like I do or not…) and believe you can eat GOOD food, on a budget, without spending hours preparing it!

If you’ve known me for more than two seconds, you have probably noticed that I have an obsession with cute/cheeky/clever trucker hats. I wear them (probably way too) often, and every time I do, I get bombarded with questions asking where I got them, and how YOU can nab them too. Well, Freebs, I

Their little brains are bored without school to keep them occupied, no matter how many time we swim in a day. However, with 5 kids I don’t have the time to do intricate, completed activities like I
