About the Blog

Are you on a budget, have a gazillion things to do, and still dreaming of a lifestyle you truly want?

Then, you’re in the right place.

This blog isn’t about eating ramen every night or sharing a toothbrush to save – like why?!

Instead, it’s about:

Saving money – so that we can afford the luxuries without worry. Wouldn’t it feel super awesome to go to Whole Foods and pay for stuff without checking the price?

Managing money isn’t taught in school but it’s part of #adulting! I share tips on how to save and manage your money so that you’ll no longer have #adultingstruggles and have more time living.

Earning money – side hustles we all can pursue so that we can save more money and live the lifestyle we want.

This digital age provides many avenues to create businesses and money-making opportunities. So, why not take advantage?

Living simply – living a life you truly love.

Here, I share ideas and tips on how to be more productive, simplify your life, cultivate a life with intention and practice self-care.

We need to care for ourselves first to be able to care for others.

About the Author

Hello, I’m Glenda and I’m really glad you’re here!

             

I live in Northern California with my husband and two kids. I love deals and Target! You, too? Ok, let’s be friends!

I was a freelance graphic designer, Etsy shop owner, part-time teller, and an engineering student before I became a mom. I loved this season of life. My goals were clear and my inner-artist heart was fulfilled.

I became a stay-at-home mom when we had our first baby in 2009. The first time I met my daughter I thought to myself, “There was no way I’m leaving her with a babysitter.” It was a decision my husband fully gave his support. No regrets.

Motherhood was a league of its own! I suffered from sleep deprivation and postpartum depression. It was difficult and even more so with the arrival of our son 21 months later. Being a mom demanded much, much more from me – mentally, physically and spiritually. At the same time, I’ve lost who I was. Have you ever felt that way? I think it’s because I put myself last on the priority list; I didn’t take care of me.

This was the time I started to look for answers in books, turned to meditation and also learned couponing.

Ohhh yes, COUPONING! I saw it on the news one evening and the rest was history.

Being a stay-at-home mom gave me an opportunity to learn and grow as a person. I reflected a lot on where I was in my life and how I wanted to live it. I learned about mindfulness and minimalism. I’m not a minimalist but I do incorporate a lot of minimalism philosophies in all aspects of my life.

I am grateful to be able to stay home with my children. I am grateful for couponing which became part of my lifestyle.

I’m grateful to you for visiting and reading my blog.
