Day 4 ~ Disneyland when you’re broke

Today we kicked off the holiday season with a trip to Disneyland. This moms hours were cut at work so instead of spending a ton on food or toys that never get used I packed us all lunches and we had a great morning and afternoon at the magic kingdom. We are pass holders and there’s no way around that so we can find ways to save and believe it or not, packing your own meals is a huge money saver.

Below some images of our fun filled and no money spent day:

Fashion on a budget??

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.*
