Happy Shelf-Cook May, Freebs! Let’s be honest…who doesn’t need more quick and easy breakfast ideas in their life? And how about topping it off with delicious recipes that actually taste as good when they are make-ahead, FREEZER breakfast recipes? Now we’re talkin’. As y’all have been interested in cooking more this month (yay for shelf-cooking!)
The other day on Instagram I gave you a glimpse of our snack drawer, and briefly mentioned our lunch system, not thinking much about it. BOY OH BOY did you want to know more! I became flooded with questions about how we do snacks, how we save money with snacks, how we don’t get eaten

Hi. My name is Jordan, and I’m a phone addict. Hi Jordan. *Kind of joking, kind of not.* This year I have been trying to find better balance with my phone. It’s just so dang hard because it is my EVERYTHING! My journal, my brain, my doctor, my babysitter (not kidding here, watch the video
Aside from frugal living and finance questions, I’d daresay the most common question I get asked is “how do you do all that you do??”, or more commonly worded, “how do you do it all“? Not going to lie, the last one makes me wince a little. While there is no such thing as doing
FREEBS! Big news! You may or may not know that we are surprising our kids with a trip to Disneyland next week. We have been planning this trip for a year now, and we are so excited it’s finally here! With Disney on the brain, I HAD to share an amazing Disneyland sale with you!
In case you missed the sneak-peek announcement on my live Q&A last night, starting today we are running our biggest sale of the year on my popular budgeting program, Budget Boot Camp! Until midnight Sunday (11/5) you can get my program for only $110, the lowest price it’s been in over a year!! (Maybe
