Preschool Homeschool Curriculum for 3 Year Olds


Looking for a preschool homeschool curriculum for 3 year olds? This is the one we are using for our family along with how we are organizing it to help keep us sane.

One of our goals this year is to homeschool Conner for 3 Year Pre-K. The truth is, I have zero desire to homeschool my kids but since we do not have the room in our budget to send Conner to private pre-k, we decided that homeschooling him was the best option. We do not want Conner to be behind when he enters Georgia Pre-K (that is, if we get approved for him to go into Georgia Pre-K) and as such, the hubs and I put together our own homeschool curriculum. This was not as easy as we thought it

Are You an Imposter? Here’s How You Might Be One.

Are you an imposter? Have you spending money that does not align with your goals? If so, you might be an imposter with your money buying a lifestyle that doesn't fit you.

Are you an imposter? I know, my question is dramatic, but many of us are in fact imposters. I do not mean that we are imposters in the sense that we have a whole another family living in another state or lead a completely different life on the side. I mean we are imposters with our money. I discovered that I had been being an imposter with my money when I was going through financial hell. After crying into my dog’s fur because I literally had no money and was facing eviction, I decided that

How to Have a Great Marriage. My Favorite Marriage Habits.

How to have a great marriage? Marriage isn't easy, in fact it is the hardest thing that you'll ever work for. Love requires honestly, realness, and a depth that can't be found anywhere else.

If you ever meet my hubs and I in real life, you will discover that we have a strong commitment to this thing called marriage. We have the most imperfect marriage ever and we like it that way. After my hubs and I got married during our $500 wedding ceremony, I called my Grandmama to tell her that I had gotten married. She offered up this advice to me: “Marriage is the hardest thing that you will ever work for in your life. There will be days when you are sitting across from each other at the

Should I Take Elite Blog Academy?

Should I take Elite Blog Academy, the blog course offered by Ruth of LivingWellSpendingLess.com? This will give you an in depth look at why and why NOT to take the course.

The quick, easy answer is yes, Elite Blog Academy* is 100% worth it in my opinion, but let’s get down to the nitty-gritty details of why I think it’s worth your hard-earned money and why it may not be right for you. I joined EBA in the fall of 2014 because after I read Ruth’s book, How to Blog for Profit without Selling Your Soul * my blog’s traffic improved and I started to bring in an income. It was not much, only about $100 every couple of months but it was better than the pennies I was

Is an Emergency Fund Necessary? How Ours Saved Us from Financial Ruin

Is an emergency fund necessary? This our story of how our emergency fund saved our one-income family from financial ruin and from sinking into more debt.

I have been preaching about an emergency fund for years now, and if you do not have one, you need to establish one - today preferably. However, I have never shared all the details of the day our emergency fund saved us and since I believe the emergency fund is one of the most important things you can establish for your finances, I am finally sharing our story to help you decide, is an emergency fund necessary? My hubs and I were in our first year of parenthood and our first year of living on

Should I Help Someone Financially?

Should I help someone financially? This is such a difficult question to answer because it is not easy to watch someone you love struggle, but sometimes that is the only answer.

Y’all will have to forgive me with this post. I am usually super transparent on here and share every gory detail, but this post will be slightly more vague. Not because I do not think you do not deserve to know the whole story, but because this story involves someone else and I am not okay with sharing their name or their relationship to me without their permission. This post is all about one of the most challenging decisions I have ever had to make. This post is about someone that I love

What You Should Spend Your Money On

What you should spend your money on instead of purchasing the next generation iPhone? This one thing will last you a lifetime and bring you hours of happiness.

It is no secret that I believe in saving money and managing your money with intention, but there is one thing that I believe you should always spend your money on. I do not believe in spending your hard-earned money on junk, or items that will need to be replaced in a few months. I do not believe in debt and believe in having a fully funded emergency fund, but I do believe that you should always make room in the budget for experiences. What you should spend your money on instead of blowing it

How to Calculate Net Worth & Why You Should

Do you know how to calculate net worth and why it's important? If not, this worksheet will help you calculate your net worth and give you a money snapshot.

Ever wondered how to calculate net worth? When my hubs and I first calculated our net worth it was right after we made the decision to go debt-free. Seeing how much more net worth we could have by not having debt, really propelled us down this debt-freedom road. Because I know some folks prefer a worksheet they can print off, you can download the editable .pdf document here that literally contains the same information as this post. :) Here's how you calculate your net worth: The greater your
