In a world of instant gratification, we are finding ourselves at a level of personal debt never, ever seen before in this country. But why? I think this idea of defining your needs vs. wants in your budget and with your spending is becoming more and more important. Even though you CAN have an item show up at your door in 2 days or less for $6 cheaper than a competitor doesn’t make the purchase that much better if you can’t afford it in the first place. Let’s talk about your financial goals and how defining an absolute need vs. a want, or nice to have, can save your family budget! 

Hello friends! We are kicking off this month with a little challenge for our family and would love for you guys to join on in with us!

Up on the docket today are these quick and easy (and healthy!) baked eggplant parmesan bites! They are so simple to make and require some ingredients you may even have on hand. This recipe is great for families who do meatless Monday or are just looking for a healthy veggie alternative! We made these healthier over the years by baking the breaded eggplant instead of frying them. Make these eggplant parmesan bites your go-to recipe just as we have over the years! Your toddlers may even love them as well! *gasp!*

This past weekend was amazingly sunny and in the mid 80’s here in NC! It brought me right back to our time camping at the lake last year and made me miss it so bad! But!…this time has given us a few moments to go through our RV, clean it out and figure out all the stuff we’ll be bringing along with us for our first trip out. These custom cornhole boards we got last year from All American Tailgate were pretty much first on the list of needing to come with us! Come along and check them out!

We are massive coffee lovers in this house. After getting so tired of constantly buying K-cups and only making 1 cup at a time, we decided to ditch our Keurig and go back to the days of a carafe. We had no idea how much money we were saving ourselves by making the switch! Simple math shows that we have saved ourselves $638 a year….AT A MINIMUM! Come along and let’s do some coffee math together, shall we?

Once the camper is clean, we can start to organize it again to get it ready for another camping season! Whoohoo!

Anyways, as we have been going through some of our organizational bins and storage items that we bought last year, it made me want share some of our awesome finds with you guys! We rounded up 21 unique Container Store finds for your home and RV! Check them out!
