Money Saving Monday

Caroline Renae

There are infinite ways to save on your favorite fashion finds. Most people suddenly think coupons, or online promotional codes. However, my methods are a bit unconventional. I’m sure you’re all familiar with eBay, but have you ever heard of Poshmark? Poshmark is an app that operates very similarly to eBay, however its comprised strictly of fashion related items.

My favorite recent purchase from Poshmark were my two pairs of Nike Roshe Runs. They were both brand new, and retailed for $80.00 per pair. I managed to get both pairs for $80.00. The woman was selling them because she received them as a gift and merely didn’t care for them. I was happy to take these off of her hands at an incredible price.

Dementia Mind

Every single day is different with my mom.  Today when we went to visit she was pretty sad and crying.  It took us a little bit of time to bring her out of it but after about 1/2 an hour of affirming how beautiful and wonderful she is mom put on her happy face.

Trout Tea Towel $15.00

Trout Tea Towel $15.00

So stay tuned.

Calling All Crafters

A friend and I have been brainstorming about our blogs the past couple of days.  We would like to post other crafter’s blogs with a link at my sidebar titled “My Creative Friends.”  All we ask is that you do the same for us with a link on your blog sidebar.  The goal is to create a network of blogs.

You may notice that I changed my profile picture. It is my lovely dog, Lily, and me after her first day home with me.  She was a rescue on death row.  She was to be euthanized the next morning because her time at the shelter ran out.  She was pulled out of the shelter in San Bernardino, California and somehow made it to Power of the Paw group in Big Fork, Montana.
