Fun Fact Lowdown vol 5

Happiness to brighten up their day sometimes.

Today has been one of those very lazy days for me.  I've been stuck inside with two antsy kids all day because of a snowstorm. Watching any kind of animated movie my kids fancy because.. why not have a movie day when it's too cold to go outside?  
Although I love spending this time snuggling my kids, cats like these feel a little dreary to me,  so I always look for something to help me smile to keep my day positive.  I figured today would be a perfect day to continue their Fun Fact Lowdown with a few fun facts that would put a smile on anyone's face.

I hope these fun facts have helped put a smile on your face like it has mine!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
