Coconut oil has received a lot of hype for a few years now... almost to the point where I have become skeptical about the many celebrated "magical powers" that coconut oil supposedly has.

I decided to put these magical claims to the test. While a lot of the suggested use cases for coconut oil certainly did improve my life, there were a few that still make me scratch my head.

I wrote all about my positive and less positive experiences testing a large handful of household uses for coconut oil - feel free to check it out if you're curious!

The half-way point in the year is a great time to buckle down and clean up our finances! June is a great time to re-evaluate savings goals, celebrate progress, and make plans for the future. I do this every month using a budget tracking spreadsheet.

Each month I input & categorize my income and expenditures, then the spreadsheet automatically organizes that information in a way that helps me visualize whether or not I am on track with my budget.

If you're curious to see what it looks like and how it works, then definitely check out this post - there is a link for you to access your own copy of the spreadsheet plus a video tutorial to help you get started!
