Well, it’s that time of year again. I don’t know how time flies so quickly – but it truly does. I feel like the years are getting shorter the older I get. It simply teaches me to appreciate the small things and really be thankful for everything that I’ve been blessed with in my life. I wanted to jot down a couple of things that I’m thankful for this year, and I also wanted to remind you that I’m having a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale in my Etsy shop where you can find affordable printable home decor! (Plus, a lot of budgeting tips, workbooks, tools, and worksheets too!)
Do you feel like your bank account is constantly at zero? At the end of the month, do you constantly think – "where the heck did all my money go?" What about – "aw crap, it's my mom's birthday next week – I guess I'll just put dinner on my credit card...again" You're not alone in this. Budgeting baffles hundreds of thousands of people across the nation. How do I know this? Because according to a recent study, only 1/3 of Americans budget. That means 214.3 million (MILLION) people who don't create a budget and don't know what happens to their money at the end of the month. 214.3 million is a lot of people. So, you're REALLY not alone.

Here’s some Ted Talks that will inspire you to live a more frugal lifestyle.
