In case you didn’t see the hints on Instagram…we are headed to MEXICO! This is our first “big” trip as a family in a really really long time. In fact, this will be Mory’s first time ever on a plane, which is so exciting! As I’m rushing around packing and getting everything ready to go,
Don’t miss anything!
Truth: I am NOT a morning person. My kids are naturally early risers…I would love to sleep until noon and party all night. Alas, adulthood isn’t exactly conducive to that routine, so I’ve had to learn to conquer my morning, and make it incredibly productive and efficient (…even though I walk around like a zombie).
I’m sure many of you have heard of or read my original “The 7 Bank Accounts Every Family Should Have” post. It was from a LONG time ago and was in need of some updating, and when I launched our new site, it messed up the formatting. Here is the newest version, perfect for
Freebs…pause the DVR, text your mama, and grab a snack… A trend is coming. Over the last few years, I have had an overwhelming amount of people ask for more and more details on how I shop for, cook for, and feed my family (of 7) on a budget. For a long time I’ve wondered
Holy smokes, two blog posts in a row? I’m on FIRE, Freebs! I should be in bed, but I had a stroke of inspiration so I’m going to run with it for a sec. Tonight I spoke to a church group about budgeting and frugal living, as I often do. We covered many things, stopping
Hey Freebs! It’s the Fun Cheap or Free Team here and we are celebrating one of the best days of the year…Amazon Prime Day! This is a special event where Amazon Prime members can get killer deals on all sorts of products including clothes, electronics, baby gear, even food! With hundreds of
Happy Monday Freebs! As we are now approaching May (wait, what?). I wanted to check in and see how your resolutions are going?… …That good huh? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! But this time of year, almost 100% of people have given up on their resolutions entirely, or have fallen off the wagon and
Hello, Snappers! Here are the graphics and printables I promised you. PS remember, do NOT JUDGE MY BLOG. It’s horrible. And old. And outdated. And ugly. And clunky. Basically, she’s got a sweet spirit. So hopefully you see that I mean what I say when I emphasize that something is better than nothing, and perfectionism
It’s 2:04 am. I should be in bed, as I have a group of 4 year olds coming over to celebrate Beck’s birthday bright and early tomorrow morning (*update: I wrote this on Friday night). Yet, here I am. Mind racing, leg bouncing up and down as I try to channel my thoughts and energy
One of the questions I seem to get most this time of year falls along the lines of, “How do I know I am picking the right healthcare plan for my family?”. Healthcare can be expensive, especially if you don’t know what the different options are! Have no fear, Mama J has heard your call,
One of the most common questions I get asked (aside from “are they ALL yours??“) is, “how do you get so much done in a day?”. Initially that was a tough question to answer. Then, over the last few years I’ve realized my most productive days can ultimately be boiled down to one main thing…
FunCheapOrFree.com started somewhat on accident. Wanting to make my family blog private, I started blogging about frugal ideas on a separate blog as a hobby in 2011. For the first 1.5 years I fought tooth and nail to keep it low-key and remain in the “hobby” zone. I quickly realized Freebs were everywhere and
