Sure, if you have a dog that has ever been around you when you are eating something that smells good, you have probably seen him beg for a bite. This is not a good idea – especially when you are eating processed foods. The best thing that you are able to do for your dog is to give him or her organic things. This includes everything from the food that your dog eats every day to the supplements that you need to give. After all, when dogs used to roam around in the wild – they only consumed organic things.… Read more

Data shows the average household owes more than $15,000 in credit card debt, which is just a portion of the debt landscape, and with relatively high interest rates across the board, the situation is unlikely to improve in the short term.… Read more

There is nothing better than having a nice and cold low-fat ice cream when you are out having a picnic with your family. Of course, one of the biggest problems with enjoying this sweet treat during a picnic is that many people have found that their ice cream melts before they ever get the chance to enjoy it. This is simply unacceptable and not something that you have to put up with. Don’t fret just yet – this does not mean that you have to simply give up on the idea of ever enjoying a nice ice cream during the warm weather while out at picnic ever again.… Read more

Learning how to travel the world on a budget is incredibly easy to do once you get the hang of it.
You can experience different cultures and countries all around the world without having to spend thousands of dollars on a 7 day trip. I know this firsthand because I usually spend around $50 a day when I’m abroad, which included accommodations, food, excursions, and anything else I needed.
In the past 2 years, I’ve been an au pair, volunteer for a special needs orphanage, solo traveler, and have found many ways to travel without having to stay in hostels on a regular basis or eat food from the grocery store at every meal. Let’s be real, food is a big deal when traveling to another country and I want to experience it at restaurants or cooking classes.

When you buy exercise clothing, do you go for stylish, or more practical and comfortable?
I try to find a mixture of both because I live in workout clothing around the clock, especially since I work at home.
Workout gear can get expensive, which is why I wanted to list out a few different options. Everyone has a different style, size, and certain workout clothing does better in certain sports (i.e. climbing, weightlifting, yoga).
If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to working out or eating healthy, I recommend checking out 21 Day Fix Extreme. You can check out the results I had from the program here. (This post was from 2 years ago!). I was in college, eating unhealthy, and drinking often, and I ballooned up and was feeling terrible about myself. I completed the program and was feeling completely transformed mentally and physically. Working out at home is a great way to save money, and get you comfortable with certain movements at your own pace.
When it comes to healthy eating, as always, I recommend Hannah’s recipe books. I’m not a fan of most recipe books because I’m looking for easy and cheap, and thankfully, the ebooks comprise of both. I don’t like when recipes have 10+ ingredients for every single meal. It’s not practical, in my opinion, especially for people who live busy lifestyles.
Below is a list of in-person or online stores that will give you good quality clothing for a low to moderate cost.
