How do I create a blog? If you’re looking for ideas for making money from home, creating a blog isn’t as hard as you think. Find out if you have what it takes to make a successful blog.
We Moms are a scrappy bunch. We’re often in charge of the family budget. So when we see that the outgo is greater than the income, we do what we can to make up for it.
And since you clearly like to read blogs (thanks for checking out Medium Sized Family, by the way!) you’ve probably wondered at one time or another, “How do I create a blog?”
Since this blog focuses on the best ways to save and earn money, I don’t want to overlook the way I’m bringing in money for my family these days. But I’m not going to promise you the moon about blogging like some people do.
This Decluttr review will explain the process, how you can earn money, and why Decluttr is a great alternative to driving a bag of donations in your car for months.
Why does clutter seem to multiply overnight? You open a closet that you just organized only to find it stuffed full again.
You know that it’s important to keep up with it. Too much stuff is stressful for everyone. And we all have the best intentions. So you pull out the keep/trash/donate boxes and get to work.
Once you’re done, you look at your closet with pride. It feels good to tackle that job!
Now, before you turn around to face those boxes of stuff, you need to read this Decluttr review. Because it’s going to change the way you deal with all of that clutter!
Ok, so the trash box is easy enough. The keep box takes a little more effort, but you manage to find a home for everything.
Then there’s the donate box. You might take it straight to the donation bin in town. Or you might drop it in the corner of the garage or the back of your car. And it’ll stay there for months.

When I first decided to become a blogger, like most people I wanted to know what I was getting myself into. Blogging is one of those things that looks simple from the outside, but is actually more complicated than other businesses.
Have you ever stopped to consider how many different ways you’ve made money over the years? Even if you got as little as $1, it counts as a money making scheme.
You probably have a wealth of ideas for making money at your fingertips and you didn’t even realize it!
Before we dig into today’s post, this is the final day of the 30 day money challenge I call Secure Your Savings and Find Peace in the New Year! If you didn’t keep up with the series, there’s no reason you can’t read this post on its own. But if you like the idea of having extra money, I suggest you check out this post for a whole list of money saving tips and ideas for bringing in extra cash.
On my first secret shop, I was so nervous. I was convinced that when I walked in the door, a giant blinking arrow would flash above my head. “Alert! Alert! Secret shopper approaching!”
Well, that didn’t happen. (Thankfully!) I managed to get through the secret shop without any major blunders, and I even got my money. The company also reimbursed me for the purchase I made, so I got a tube of caulk for free, too. (If I were a DIYer that might have been a bit more exciting.)
If you enjoy shopping and are pretty observant, you can do well with secret shops. Today, let’s talk about where to find this kind of work and what to expect from this “job”.
Getting a college scholarship was amazing. They covered four years of my schooling, and I can’t put into words how grateful I was for that.
However, I wanted a degree in music education. That’s a five year degree. But I was determined I could fit it into 4 years instead. I didn’t want to pay more out of pocket than I had to.
And I nearly made it! I fit that five year degree into 4 1/2 years. But here’s the trouble with graduating in December with a music education degree…no one is hiring teachers in December.
As it turns out, there was a great solution. Not only did it pay, but it also helped me learn more about teaching kids before I got my first job.
I decided to become a substitute teacher.
