*coming soon I will be updating this for fall 2018, so check back soon*
Wannabe minimalist, saver of money, simplifier, culinary concoctor, and single mom. My goal in life is to save money on all the little things so I can afford to splurge on the big stuff (like traveling and buying the farmhouse I’ve always wanted). That’s me in a nutshell…but there’s more!
I started this blog as a coping mechanism when I was going through a really hard time. I needed something constructive to throw myself into to keep my mind off of things, but still wanted to help others make their lives better while I was at it and so lifeshouldcostless.com was born.
Why is it called lifeshouldcostless.com you may ask? Frankly, that is because gettingmycraptogetherandsavingmoneywhiledoingso.com is a little too long ;). That’s really what this site is. It keeps me motivated to get stuff done and share easier, cheaper, or more organized ways of what I do. I do write about whatever I want, so I guess you could say that this is a lifestyle blog.
I’ve been working on this site since July 2011! It has been quite the journey too. I very nearly gave up about a thousand times but I’m so glad that I kept at it and am dedicated to continually improving both the site and myself.
I am riddled with flaws (two left feet, sugar addict, major worry wart…to name a few), so please don’t think that I think that I am anywhere near perfect. The last thing that I want is for someone to come to my blog and leave feeling totally inadequate. Just so you know, realistically, when a mommy blogger spends the day working on a blog post…the kids usually have spent a good amount of time in front of the tv that day and the house is totally trashed. I know that that you may see a picture that looks just gorgeous, but just remember that right beyond that view-able shot is a sink piled high with dishes and several laundry baskets that need attention…or I had to hire someone to help me that day because I just can’t do it all.
Random things about me:
Some of my most popular posts, that you just can’t miss, are:
Chocolate Cherry Dr. Pepper Cobbler In The CrockPot…it’s SO GOOD and only take two hours to cook!
I’m super tired, as I am burning the midnight oil after all, so hopefully I was able to convey what I meant to…without too many typo’s. 😉
If I didn’t, scare you off, stop back soon! Or, you know, subscribe so that you never miss a post. ~Sarah
