Are you stuck with a small basement window - that's up really high? How do you make basement windows look bigger? We came up with a solution using cheap trim and affordable bamboo blinds. Faux windows covered in blinds make this weird basement window make sense. Sage green paneling, white bedding, farmhouse side tables, clear glass lamps and painted faux brick make this guest bedroom airy and cozy. #basement #budgetdecor #farmhouse #cottagedecor #bedroom

We've learned so much getting to debt free - after making so many money mistakes - we will help you learn how pay off that debt faster! #budget #family #debt #finance #familyfinance #frugal

There are so many reasons to love this easy slow cooker chicken meal:
It is kid-pleasing - our kids practically cheer when they know this is for dinner - it tastes that good.
It's got healthy, wholesome ingredients.
Plus, it COULD NOT BE EASIER. (It rivals my Dump and Dash Chili for speed.)

This year off work - while therapeutic - does not come free - or even cheaply. This will mean a drastic cut in our income. At the very least we don't want this year to put us back into debt. We are going to need to cinch our belts even tighter and get even better at living frugally. That's what this post is about - how we're paying for my year off work!

An IKEA hack: how to add faux brick to the back of bookcases. We used Billy's to create a built-in wall of bookcases. We used brick panels to add character to the bland basement space. This DIY project is simple and easy and adds so much charm! #DIY #bookcase #IKEAhack
