I’ve been having a hard time as of late. Working two jobs money is still tight. A lot of my clothes either don’t fit me (at this moment) or are so old they’re dying.
I found thredUP and found I can sell and buy gently used or even new with tags clothing at a cheaper price. I also avoid the malls since my time is limited between school and two jobs.
They have a great variety of clothes and I even shop for my son at times.
I was worried to post about the mom on a tight budget BUT this is actually smart of me. Currently I have a bag with old items barely worn on consignment and items are selling. I’m taking the money from those and getting myself new clothes. New to me.
So if you’re a mom on a budget check them out. They’re making this transition with weight after my heart attack easier.
*I wasn’t paid by thredUP to do this. Just a FYI they work for me right now.*

You know the jingle. Today though I felt pretty. This doesn’t happen a lot but I’m working on self acceptance. So, I lived in the moment and felt good about me. It’s a nice feeling. It’s growth.
As most who know me my life drastically changed around March 2016. Due to my “event” AKA heart attack I lost a job and well lots of other whatever happened.
Fast forward to today. Single mom (In a relationship with a single dad who’s pretty awesome), working two jobs, and in school full time (did I mention I made the full time Deans Honor List?), with two rare artery conditions and I realize I am in not financially as I once was BUT….
Today I fixed my sons iPad screen, got my daughter her first facial at my favorite Organic Spa, and got us all some boba tea.
I’m tired a lot. I do a lot. Today though felt like a win. I know it’s not about money because money doesn’t buy happiness but both my kids needed things and I was able to take care of it.
We had a great family day out as well. Here’s some images of our adventures. Today was a total mom win.
