When it comes to art, it get expensive. I figured it might be a fun experiment if I messed around with creating my own abstract art to hang around the house. I decided to create my own finger painting! Why not, right? I’m an adult and I still want to finger paint. Got a problem, come at me bro!

Home decor can add up really quickly, can’t it? It’s not something that you go and buy on a whim when you’re trying to pay off debt. But, I was able to make a fun, budget friendly, wall hanging that I absolutely love and can’t wait to share with you.

Me, being the crafting connoisseur that I am, couldn’t let that deal pass me up. So, I pick them up in hopes that I would have a project come along. What do you know? This project did!

Relaxing is hard to do when you’re overwhelmed with the debt right at your fingertips. You feel guilty when you buy that extra latte that you didn’t budget for or you don’t feel like you can rest because you feel massive debt guilt every time you take a day. I get it. I’ve been there. Resting is hard to do when you have massive debt on your shoulders, but it’s a necessary part of life.

DIY: Quick & Easy Mouthwash Recipe

When it comes to all things DIY on a dime. I’m there. This was another one of those things that we ran out at the house and I refused to buy at the store because I have perfectly good items to make it around the house.
