I am dedicated to providing information that will engage and educate both myself and others. As a mother of two who has tried to juggle work, school and life in general, I have seen how difficult it can be to hold your sanity. I will provide legitimate ways to make extra money from home or on the side. I will also provide blogs about Gardening, Home Life, Relationships and Friendships, Money, Community Actions and Involvements, Inspiring Stories, Product Reviews, Travel and Culture! Be sure to check back often for updates and new stories.
My name is Jennifer. I was born in Clearwater, Florida but was raised in a small country town outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I have a wonderful “Domestic Partner” as any survey would typically put it. We have been together for 12 years now and have 2 beautiful children. When I had my first child, I decided to go to college because I wanted to be able to provide a better life for my family. After years of juggling night classes, a baby and normal life tasks, I finally graduated with an Associates Degree in General Studies and a major focus in Anthropology. I decided to return to the workplace after graduation and it was not long until I became pregnant with my second child. I had a very difficult pregnancy. I had to leave work to focus on my health. After I had my second child, I once again tried to return to work. It was then, I realized that the ungodly cost of daycare was leaving me with between $50-$100 after daycare cost every two weeks. With all the extra stress that came from coming home from work and picking kids up from the bus, quickly getting dinner started, homework, making sure everyone was fed, bathed, put to bed, then cleaning up from dinner (and everything else I needed to clean) then I could rest (sort of). It was not worth it. I started to try to find ways to stay involved in my community, earn some extra money to put toward bills etc..
This is the purpose of this blog. I want to help others understand that you are NOT alone. I want connect people and help provide information on how to find great deals, earn money, relationship/home/kids/life, crafting, gardening and community/global topics.
