Frugal Friday: Changing your Heart, Changing your Mind

Frugal Friday: Changing your Heart, Changing your Mind

I had this open all day yesterday and only had one line written. The content was all up here, however! I’m still going to count it as a Frugal Friday. Faith and Frugality Merge I think one of the biggest challenges in taking control of any aspect of your live is adopting the proper mindset. In January, I was invited to join a Buy Nothing group organized by a member of my Mommy Tribe. I had moderate success but I…

Money Monday: When Disaster Strikes…

Money Monday: When Disaster Strikes…

Remember this gem of a post? It’s haunting me a little right now. We’re still absolutely fine, just minus one finished basement. Picture this. It was an extremely wet weekend in Greenacresland, but we’d managed to have a chill weekend nonetheless. If I rely on the camera roll on my phone, we’d had a fish fry at the community hall on Friday night. Fish and chips! #cumberlandlions A post shared by mme d (@madamegreenacres) on Oct 27, 2017 at 2:27pm PDT I…

Featured Friday: The Reigning King and Queen of the Side Hustle

Featured Friday: The Reigning King and Queen of the Side Hustle

I originally reached out to these guys last year, when I was still all gung-ho – and on mat leave with lots of spare time! They were incredibly kind to respond right away to my questions, and like I often do, I totally dropped the ball. :/ (Like I told Éric, not long after they sent this, I ended up going back to work, and at the time we only had a desktop. Which was located in the basement. Away…

Status Saturday!

Status Saturday!

… is totally not a thing. But it’s only fair! I have been itching to get back into the swing of things for a few reasons. It seems like we take one step forward and two steps back. Story of our lives. You see, last time we spoke was in July. We were stuck in stasis for a while with our jobs, but Fall 2017 will be known as the season when things finally got moving for us!

Money Monday – And a little mish-mash of other stuff too!

Money Monday – And a little mish-mash of other stuff too!

Hey guys! It’s the last day of July, so it must be the middle of the summer! You can’t blame me for taking the time to enjoy the nice weather while we have it, right? Summer is so short around these parts, and this has been a beautiful summer, without the usual suffocating humidity. Before we get down to it, allow me to share with you one of the summer’s hottest tunes! Share the love! 0

Werk It! Wednesday – Life Lessons

Werk It! Wednesday – Life Lessons

Hi! Don’t you just hate it when you’re promised all of this great stuff and the person promising you stuff doesn’t follow through? Yeah, me too. Sorry about that. Today’s posting is less about the tips and tricks to help you out in the here and now, and more about big-picture philosophies that will not only help you in your money matters but across the board. But first… Since I’ve been gone I shouldn’t really be making excuses, but since…

Miscellaneous mardi – May 2-4 edition

Miscellaneous mardi – May 2-4 edition

Hi everyone! I hope all of y’all had a splendid long weekend, and took some well-deserved time to recharge. We had a couple of beauty days out there, including one where the Green Acres clan took in a pretty awesome baseball game with our Ottawa Champions. I like cheap thrills! Bet you that’s going to get stuck in your head, now, isn’t it? You’re welcome. The two oldest little bears just started tee ball last week, and it was Little League…

And now, for something a little different

And now, for something a little different

I don’t even know where to begin with this one, but I feel like it needs to come out. I just had an awful night’s sleep, and yet, I am here, awake at 5:30AM on a Saturday, feeling more refreshed than I have felt all week. I’d say these nights happen at least once a month. I typically fall asleep like usual, for a couple of hours, and then wake up with my chest feeling super tight and my mind…

Flooded

Flooded

That is what is on my mind at the moment. Before you get all worried, we’re fine. We’re just hurting for people not even five minutes away who lost everything. This is the scene about ten minutes away that we drive past to get to the Y for my Aquafit and the kids’ activities. 12 hrs of working in a flood zone today.

$$$ Mardi: Consumables – Gas & Groceries

$$$ Mardi: Consumables – Gas & Groceries

Today’s post is timely as I’m about to go grocery shopping. So you’ve whittled down your fixed expenses as much as you can. The next thing you can do is try to pare down the cost of your consumables. Transportation Again, there are a few options to consider. If we were going full frugal, the obvious answer would be to move close to where you work/play, so that you can walk/bike everywhere and have no need for a car. The…
