Learning to Save Money with #GrouponCoupons!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine. I am frugal. Really frugal. I can’t imagine paying full price for anything. I search, research, get the best deal possible at every turn. One of my favorite places to shop is Groupon. From the comforts of my bed, I can scroll and search for great items...

Reuse and Conserve for #EarthDay

Over the last month, I have taken full advantage of my new Amazon Prime account (2-day free shipping, amaaazing!) and loving not paying shipping fees. What I’m not loving is the amount of waste (the boxes, oh the boxes) with each of the products if they don’t come packaged together. So, in honor of upcoming Earth...

Make Your Business Pop with Screen Printing

My timeline has been flooded with my friends starting businesses… and looking to add a t-shirt to sell to support their endeavors. They love the idea of t-shirts because they’re something that their customers can actually use. Plus, every time they wear t-shirts, they become walking billboards for the business. We aren’t talking about shirts...

3 Reasons You Should Consult with a Professional Before Investing

When it comes to investing, the losses caused due to small mistakes are very real. The effects of those losses can have a significant impact on your life and sometimes, it’s difficult to bounce back. Consulting with a professional before you invest, therefore, makes sense especially if you are investing for the first time or...

Big News: Introducing Modernish Mommas

Last year, I read a lot of blogs. I saw the gambit from complaining about parenthood to wildly inventive (but time-consuming and extensive) DIY projects. I enjoyed reading them all. What was noticeably absent was the tie between motherhood and work. Up to 19% of mothers are likely to develop postpartum depression and 10% of mothers...

3 Steps to Effective Crowdfunding

Over the summer, my friend and I attempted to fund a summer camp through crowdfunding. It was an epic fail. I don’t say that to discourage you in your desires, but I say that to say that I’ve given it a try. We didn’t do it right, we didn’t use our resources or our friends...

How to Repair Hardwood Floors Yourself

Once upon a time, my husband and I moved in to this gigantic house (for us) which was cheap, but had a lot of issues. Even though we were working long hours and exhausted, the flooring was in complete disrepair and something needed to be done. The wood was chipped, nails had become unhinged and the...

OfferUp: An Easy App to Sell Your Stuff

Although there are a lot of positive things about Craigslist and I still use it regularly, I’ve never been much of a fan to sell my stuff. I don’t want to create one ad for each item and I know I get annoyed when the price says one thing, but it’s meant to represent the...

6 Tips to Better Financial Health

A few weeks ago, I went to a financial literacy program. Let me rephrase. I helped organize and run the National Coalition of 100 Black Women’s Inaugural My Sister’s Keeper Economic Empowerment Luncheon. That’s a mouthful. The program informed attendees of various tidbits of information, many that I was not aware of. The event seemed to be...

I’m Not Supermom ~ Removing the Cape

Blogging has opened my eyes to a lot of new experiences and people. Most of all, I felt inadequate. I know this was my own insecurity, but I’m a stay at home of three and could barely put in an hour on my blog, if I was lucky. The question I have always asked these other people...

Make a Rukkus on Saturday Night {$250 #Giveaway}

I sit in the glow of the television watching the season premiere of Suits. My back hurts and I’m in desperate need of a date night with my husband. What to do? Go see Maroon 5? Go laugh with Jerry Seinfeld? Head out to see the Cleveland Cavaliers play Miami Heat at the American Airlines Arena? There’s...
