When you’re expecting a baby, the nursery quickly becomes one of your favorite places in your home. It’s a place to prepare for your little one, to decorate, to dream. Will she want it painted pink someday? Will he fill the bookshelves with cars and robots? It’s such a special place, the room where your little one will grow. I want our nursery to be special for our baby girl, but I’d also like to be able to afford our mortgage. 😉 Let’s look together at some tips for decorating a nursery: on a budget! (And get a peek at OUR nursery!)

If you’re needing some tips on how to vacation without going broke, scroll on down to see how to plan an AWESOME family vacation: on a budget!

I like myself the way I am, and unless God makes it clear as day, I don’t see a need for big changes in my life. So why did I go 365 days without buying clothes? How did I do it? What did I learn? Keep reading for those answers!

I love Christmas! There are not enough songs and emojis and happy words to describe the joy in my heart during this sweet season. Christ has come to redeem us, and my heart is so full. Though I love literally everything about Christmastime, one of my favorite things is decorating! Lights on the house, ornaments on the tree, nativities everywhere you turn; it is just simply magical. But many of you are like me, which means you’re on a budget and can’t go spend hundreds of dollars at Hobby Lobby to deck out your house for the holiday season. But as the angel said to Joseph, “Fear not!” 😉 It is absolutely possible to transform your home for the holidays, even when you’re on a budget!
