The girls and I grabbed a few groceries for the next couple days and we got stuck behind some cat fans who were buying ALL the cat food cans... basically, we spent the majority of our shopping trip experience waiting in line. When it was our turn to check out, the cashier was asking me about how many kids I have. We chatted for a while and she couldn't understand how patient and calm I was... especially with having 3 kids and 1 on the way. She explained how she was struggling and only had 2 kids. She asked whay my secrets were and I immediately said "my daily workouts, self help books and church." She smiled and said "huh, I'll have to give all of that a try." OMGEE!! I love sharing with others the things that have helped me become a better mommy and I know that every opportunity to share it with others is God's work!! Totally made my day!
I'm officially declaring my busy season OVER. Yep, it has served it's purpose and not it's time to focus on relaxing and re-energizing myself. It's hard to go from GO GO GO to stopping a little bit longer between projects, to not staying up so late or getting up before 5AM. If you can relate hit that like button 👍 Now that the bsuy season is offically behind us - let's talk about how we can actually start to unwind and starting taking some time for ourselves. On the blog today I'm sharing my favorite tips on how to unwind. http://merelynne.com/busyseasonwinddown/ . . . . . . #motherhoodunited #motherhoodunplugged #meredithrines #merelynne #toddlerboymom #toddlermomlife #businessowner #creativebusinessowner #creativebusiness #smallbusinessowner #motherhoodproblems #toddlermomproblems #budgetingmom #momonabudget #budgetmom #frugalfamily #frugalmom #cfp #certifiedfinancialplanner #hustledaily #seasonoflife #businesstips #refuelyoursoul #merelynneblogs #budgeting #toddlerproblems #momceo #ceomom #workingmomma #workingmomlife
We are a sports family! Soccer on Saturdays and Hockey on Sundays. How is your weekend??
Our parents were friends when we were wee ones. They moved to Micah Creek, we stayed in #squamish . A tragedy hit their family shortly after, and off my mom went to help. Melissa is the second to youngest of four girlies, the youngest was only 8 months old, that lost her dad in a terrible fire. Her mom was badly burned, broken, & hospitalized. Little Melissa came to stay with us for a few months until her mom was out of the hospital. I don’t remember much of this time as were so young, but I know first hand how a tradgedy will form a bond between two families that cannot be broken. Thanks for arriving on our doorstep this week! We absolutely loved having you here @missymalin14
My morning concoction! I drink this every morning to help cleanse my gut, deflate the belly, and get the digestive tract flowing. It's warm water with fresh squeezed lemon juice, organic apple cider vinegar w/the mother, a drop of #honey , a dash of #cinnamon , and a dash of #cayannepepper . Hope your morning is peaceful, productive, and full of thanksgiving! #fitmom #gratefulmom #healthy #drinkwater #applecidervinegar #bellybusting #eatclean #dontrestrict2much #nodiet #lifestylechanges #meetyourgoals #keepsettingthebar #livelife #about2makeagrocerylist #mealplanning #budgetgoals #budgetmom #goodstewardofmoney #tellyourmonrywheretogo #Jesusprovides #Jesusisthereason

#KeianCarter had an amazing day that ended up with some FANTASTIC presents. We are still in the @megablocks phase and this present was a STEAL. He is OBSESSED with @nickjr #blazeandthemonstermachines so when I saw this @ @rossdressforless for $11.99, my #budgetmom heart skipped a beat!

"Is this what we used to do before we had kids...sit at Starbucks and chill? This is kinda boring." 🤣😂🤪 We kinda don't know how to function without the kids...sometimes. Lol! Off to hit up a store or two!
Ever have one of those days where you feel super accomplished? The kid is fed and happy. Laundry is caught up (& folded!). Dishes are done. The house is straight and you're not completely exhausted. Today is one of those days. Some days the amount of work we put on ourselves is unreal. But every once in awhile we have a really good day. . . . . . . #savingmoney #moremoney #spendless #savemore #momonabudget #budgetmom #frugalmom #frugalfamily #frugalliving #meredithrines #merelynne #planning #planyourbudget #debtfree #financialfreedom #personalfinance #womenandmoney #momlife #toddlermom #boymomlife #workingmomma #waystosave #howtosave #savingtips #budgeting #budgettips #budgethelp #budgetinghelp #budgetingtips #moneytips
Motivation for the day
Back to these Saturday morning banking hours! No complaints though, lets get it! If you haven't sat down and made a budget, do so before you start spending for these holidays! Grow yourself out of the paycheck to paycheck lifestyle. #budgetlife #budgetmom #expensestracker #fixedbills #variablebills #coins #money #financialeducation #letsgrowntogether #savings #investing #goodsteward #Jesus #coffee
I thought my workout was over this morning and it was only half over. 🤣😂 Turned up the worship tunes and got it done! Not gonna lie, it helped to have two ladies on with me!!!🤸 Does anyone have a recommendation for maternity workout leggings? I love the ones I bought from Gap, hate the Old Navy ones and need a few more, but I don't want to break the bank. ☺️ xoxo

For those of you who do cash envelopes and use or have used paper envelopes, you know how quickly they get all tattered and torn. I got tired of that so I found these plastic envelopes at Office Max and they have held up really well! The big ones were only a few dollars and the small ones less than that! So just thought I would share in case anyone else is tired of throwing envelopes away because they tear up! ;) Oh, and these aren't sponsored or anything, just sharing a tip! 😊 . . . . . #budgeting #budget #debtfreecommunity #personalfinance #daveramsey #frugalliving #debtfreeliving #momblogger #momsonabudget #savemoney #cash #debtisdumb #financialpeace #budgetmom #moneytips #saving #sidehustle #daveramseybabysteps #farmhousetable #becomingminimalist #minimalistliving #moneymatters #frugallife #cashisking #debtfreegoals #momsinbusiness #financialgoals #livelikenooneelse #inspiration #inspiredbudget
I have to share a secret with y'all...take your littles to the mall to meet Santa on a week night!!!! This has to be my best idea yet!!! We were the only ones there!!! The kids got to chat with Santa for a while and there was zero mom stress!!! Happy mom, happy kids, happy day!! 🎅🤶 Best day we've had in a while!!!
This is hilarious to me 🤣🤣🤣🤣 #Repost @realdlhughley • • • • • 🤷🏾‍♂️ I can’t call it?!

This is a total of $2,200 for the month of November!! We keep outdoing ourselves and I'm so pumped. My husband got a raise in August and instead of giving ourselves more leeway in our budget... Something we could definitely appreciate... We kept chugging along as usual to put ALL of his raise each month into our snowball. The best news is that this is still not counting our #sidehustle . eBay sales are going decently and we are at $200 profit for the month. Our goal is to hit $300 each month and put it toward debt on the last day of the month. $300 shouldn't be a problem (fingers crossed!) So we're looking at $2,500 to debt this MONTH!! On TOP of our minimums. What on Earth?!? Insane. #debtfreecommunity #ebayseller #ebay #reseller #debtfreeliving #studentloans #payingbills #payingoffdebt #budgetmom #onabudget #frugalliving #budget #debtsnowball #daveramseybabysteps #babystep2 #debtfreejourney #killinit #zerobasedbudget #homemaker #sahm #gazelleintense

I'm a perfectionist at heart. I like to go all in or not at all. It's something I've been working on and need to continue to work on. I beat myself up too frequently when I see myself as failing even though the ultimate goal should be to do my best. So..today, I'm doing my best. Getting what I can done. Enjoying the chaos of mom life and feeling thankful, grateful, blessed. ❤️

Dollar Tree frame art. Total $2 for frame and gift bag! Nobody would ever guess how cheap this was to make or that it’s a gift bag. All I did was cut it down enough to fit in the frame! #dollartree #crafts #diychristmascraft #christmas #budgetmom #frugalliving #diy #decoratingdiy #budgetmom #thethriftymomblog
Budgeting for beginners. That’s where I was not too long ago. When we decided to make and achieve financial goals, following a budget was priority. So I used the EveryDollar app to create my budget and practiced following it. It was stretching and painful for me {the spender} but I kept at it, did the best I could and soon fell in love with budgeting and tracking our family’s finances. Take a peek at my story highlights to see the steps I use for creating and following a budget. *I may have just crossed over into “nerd” territory😜 #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #daveramseybabysteps #babystep2 #budgetplanner #budgetingtips #budgetmom
Travel often #FBF : Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show. Everytime I travel I think of what is something I can do that I've never done to mark a new page in my life story. Sometimes its the little something's that make the greatest memory. Like eating sushi rooftop on a beach with your entire family ❤ Traveling doesn't have to be expensive either. We are such a budget finding family. Book your trips in advance by looking for hotel deals, a list of on the road snacks to prevent from purchasing at the gas station. And most importantly when traveling with kids, look for those kids eat free deals ☝️😉 "Its the simple things" 🤘
I’ve been pretty absent on here lately (lots of stalking haha) and that’s because things have been preeetty crazy in our house! . My husband has been picking up quite a few overtime shifts, resulting in a very nice $1500 extra in this fortnight’s pay! ($1545 actually 🙊) . This is HUGE for us, and we put almost $100 toward the car loan, but we did take a few hundred to top up our ‘fun fund’. He has been working so hard, and I don’t want to not be able to do things on the very few days he does have with us! . We are very much on track to have this bad boy gone by the middle of March, and I’m SO excited! 🎉 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #budgetlife #frugalliving #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #frugalmum #frugalmom #frugallife #frugallifestyle #budgetmom #budgetmum #debtisdumb #daveramseybabysteps
Sooo, I can’t eat a lot at one time, so I will often make juices or smoothies to get more vitamins in me. My current favorite juice is celery, lemon and apple. Do you like to juice? I would love some more recipes!!! . . . . . #christianmomma #christianentrepeneurs #christianyoutubers #budgetmom #accutanelife #greenjuicelover #healthymomsinspire
🐐 ANIMAL FARM/ THRIFT STORE 🐇 ik was vandaag bij.mijn vriendin in Amsterdam (vlak bij reigersbos) en zij heeft dus een te leuke kinderboerderij/kringloop bij haar vlak bij zitten. Eerst maak je een kleine boswandeling er na toe, daarna lieve diertjes kijken, ze hebben ook een koe, pauwen, kippen en ze hadden eerst ook n varken, maar die zag ik nu niet, en vervolgens sla je je slag bij de kringloop. Ik heb 2 kinderboeken, e boeken voor Mij zelf, een leuk bomberjasje voor Mij en schoenen voor Evi voor over ongv 2 jaar. Maar die zijn kei leuk en waren maar €2.00 kon ze niet laten liggen! Dat alles voor €6 nou vond dat erg mee vallen. Ook heb ik een hele tas vol met kleren voor Evi en jolijn gekregen van mijn vriendin met wat haar dochter niet meer past. Dus sjouw me een ongeluk met 2 grote volle shoppers! Ook heeft ze de sint cadeaus er bij gedaan voor de meiden. Nu in de bus naar huis. En zo weer de meiden ophalen van het kdv. #friyay #morgenweerwerken #maareerstwijn #goat #bunnies #animalfarm #thriftshop #budgetmom

Do you ever just have this nagging feeling something is off? That’s a good thing, Listen to your intuition if something feels off change it. It’s never to late to make things right or adjust where needed. This shirt is from my 3 Outfits for $100 capsule I love the dainty dot detail. Top from @nectarclothing
#Gratitude30 Day 15: Clothes I’m grateful I have clothes to keep me comfy all year long. The most comfortable clothes I own are leggings and loose fitting shirts. I tend to overspend in this department, (both for me and my kids) so I’ve been selling the clothes I buy and then don’t wear through @mercari since 2016. I feel this is a good practice not only for my wallet, but also for the planet. I like to buy #secondhandclothes too, through this app as well as @thredup . If you’d like to give secondhand clothes a try, check out the link in my bio for a $10 off coupon! #positivelypresent #gratitudechallenge #leggingsfordays #reuse #consciousliving #budgetmom #fashiononabudget #flosoils #secondhandfirst #recycle #thriftshop
H2O.. water is life.. I am trying to be better about my water intake and thanks to my super awesome boyfriend I have a huge pink water bottle with ice cold water. My daily goal right now is to drink all 3 of these water bottles every day. Challenge yourself to drink half you body weight in water or at least double what you normally drink. Tag yourself drinking some fab h2o and use the #reneeswaterchallenge how many people are up for the challenge #thursdaytip * * * * * #bullcitync #visitdurham #northcarolina #iheartdurham #shopdurham #shoplocalnc #shoplocalDurham #shoplocalbullcity #budgetmom #momonamission #findinghappy #momofboys #bandmom #bossladies #blessedmom #funmom #tiredmom #inspirationalwomen #footballmom #soccermom #maketime
#mealplanning gives me peace of mind that even though our fridge looks like this that we still have several meals and some snacks to eat I just have to make them. Tonights dinner was homemade cheesy noodles with leftover chili from the freezer. I used to panic when our fridge would get low so we’d go buy whatever it was we could find to fill it up. nothing ever went together and much of the produce would go bad. Now I keep just enough around that we eat it all up then I restock. Right now I just need some eggs & fruit to last us until Monday when I want to go grocery shop. #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity #pantryfridgecleanout #toshopornot #frugalliving #budgeting #budgetmom #myfridgefood #whatsinmypantry #fridgecleanout Ps: I cannot stand hamburger helper 🤮 so thats always my o shit meals that grandma sends home when we visit.

Ok my free cash envelopes are all spoken for lol groceries this week $250 ( includes diapers, home and food) next week’s groceries $250 (home and food) gas $90 (hubby only had to give me $70 this week because we had $20 that we didn’t spend) kids budget $120 (gifts, pizza and cake) and as always $5 to save on my homeschool jar... this system has been really working for us, depending on the overtime my husband works is how we budget, we leave the money for bills in the bank and take the cash out for our cash envelopes. We don’t do sinking funds, the only time we spend extra is for our kids birthday only (not for our birthdays till we are debt free) and we don’t budget for Christmas. Also we will be budgeting $250 for our kids winter clothes. . . #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtsucks #financialfreedom #daveramsey #daveramseybabysteps #babystep2 #debtsnowball #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #stayathomemomlife #stayathomemom #totalmoneymakeover #financialpeace #debtfreegoals #debtmanagement #debtisdumb #debtisslavery #debtfreeby33 #debtfreedom #debtfreegoals #debtpayoff #budget #budgetshopping #budgetplanning #budgetlife #budgetmom #debtpayoff #planningahead #cashenvelopes #cashenvelopesystem
Maybe tomorrow
If you haven't signed up for Ebates yet, I highly recommend it!! You basically go through the Ebates website to access whatever store you will be shopping from. You click on the stores link and do your shopping and purchasing, and you get a percentage back of whatever you spend! Example, I just bought my dad a meat grinder for Christmas (😂), from Bass Pro Shop and got $3.50 in my Ebates account! So simple, as long as you remember to shop from your store from the Ebates link. Most big stores are on there, including Amazon 🙌 It's getting money from purchases you'll be making anyway. And Christmas time is the BEST time to start it since you'll prob do a lot of online purchases. I'm up $8 so far and I'm not even close to done with Christmas Shopping! 🎄 Use my link... Swipe to see it. It's also in my bio. If you use the link to sign up, then you'll get $10 automatically after you make your first $25 purchase somewhere. (Plus, I'll get a little somethin' somethin' too 😉👌) Who are all my Ebates people out there?? Do you love it??? #debtfreecommunity #debtfreeliving #moneysavingapps #moneytips #christmasshopping #homemaker #sahmlife #ebates #debtfreechristmas #studentloans #debtsnowball #easymoney #budgetmom #referralcode #debtsucks #budgetliving #budget #frugalfamily #budgettips #moneytip #debtfree #daveramsey #babystep2
If seeing this picture is not motivation than I don’t know what is... my husband worked his butt off from Monday to Friday a total of 80 hours and still going to the gym 3 times a week for two hours, not only did he make enough money for this week’s budget but also for next week’s budget (we budget weekly) plus having the money for our bills, and we budget for our kids birthday gifts and a pizza party... next week is mortgage and debt snowball payment. . . . #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtsucks #financialfreedom #daveramsey #daveramseybabysteps #babystep2 #debtsnowball #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #stayathomemomlife #stayathomemom #totalmoneymakeover #financialpeace #debtfreegoals #debtmanagement #debtisdumb #debtisslavery #debtfreeby33 #debtfreedom #debtfreegoals #debtpayoff #budget #budgetshopping #budgetplanning #budgetlife #budgetmom #debtpayoff #planningahead
Yay! 26 today! . My birthday these days is nothing like the extravagant birthday weeks I used to have 😂 . No sleep in, with a sick little girl coughing herself awake at 5:45am, no big, (stupid) gifts, just going to enjoy some cuddles and some time with hubby before he goes to work tonight for 3 night shifts ☺️ . This past year has really flown, and more than ever I am so aware of the importance of living in the moment, and being there 100%. . So, here’s to another hear around the sun! ☀️ . Also, not mad about the fact that Michael Bubles new album is released today 😏 . . . . . . #budgetlife #frugalliving #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #frugalmum #frugalmom #frugallife #frugallifestyle #budgetmom #budgetmum #debtisdumb #daveramseybabysteps
Been hitting this budgeting boat hard with my partner in crime Scott and so far in three weeks we have saved $516 dollars! Plus saved $200 extra for Vacation fund. In the years that Scott and I have been together we have NEVER been able to save money ! So amazing! But the real test comes with surviving the holidays. Follow our saving journey here :) and let me know below if you wanna hear more about what we’re doing and how we’re doing it ❤️ i will start posting more about our journey! #budgetplanner #budget #budgeting #budgetingtips #budgetmom #daveramsey
A few things to keep in mind about this grocery haul: 1) I shopped the ads at 4 different stores to accomplish this! 2 pickups and 2 quick in-and-out stops. 2) I still have groceries in the pantry and freezer to supplement all of this. But that’s where good planning is KEY! 3) I purchased some meat last month when it was on sale, and shopped my cupboards beforehand. 4) I planned meals solely based on what I had and meals only needing 1-2 ingredients I didn’t already have.
No matter how you feel, get up, show up and get your sweat on!

It’s not always easy and definitely not pretty, but if you want it that bad, you will make it happen! ME time as a Mom is so important! It can be exercise, reading, meditating, whatever....Our families have 23 1/2 hours of our day..... can’t we have at least 30 minutes for ourselves? 🤷‍♀️ Well that sounds completely fair, but not always realistic, so we have to fit it in somewhere ANYWHERE! We made it happen today with my girl Angela. I’ve been working out with this amazing Mama virtually for almost a year now and she has been a great support system for me in my journey! 👉🏻scroll to see the action 👏🏻 Huge shout out to Angela for exercising throughout her entire pregnancy🙌🏻 Her doctors gave Angela the 💚light to exercise again and her body is healing faster because she fought so hard to stay healthy and active during her pregnancy! 6 weeks postpartum🙀🙌🏻 Angela -you look amazing and are doing great! It’s a different ball game with 2 now, but I LOVE that you are still “playing!” Thanks for holding me accountable this morning! It was so good to catch up and see Liam❤️❤️❤️ Do you know I would have never known Angela if it wasn’t for finally saying YES to my coach and joining a challenge group?💁🏼‍♀️ I’m so grateful for my fit family! You all Rock! There’s still time to join my Holiday Hustle group and get a jump ahead of all the new year resolution peeps!! Send me a message so I can introduce you to my fit family and we can start working on your New Year goals NOW!! 👉🏻📱
If you are using the @youneedabudget budgeting system make sure to follow this hashtag!! I was seeing so many #debtfreecommunity posts but wanted to see how others BUDGETED, not necessarily paid down debt. So I started this hashtag using my other account (@coordinatingourchaos ) but decided to create an account only for budgeting accountability. It’s inspiring looking through the tag to see how others are using YNAB!
Today is payday! I have been counting down the hours until today so I can start my debt snowball.

Dude, I am in rare form today! Went to bed crazy tired and with a messy kitchen (the worst) and I skipped my workout and devotional time. Now I'm a raging B and if I come across one more cabinet or door, you better bet that I'm slamming the C R A P out of it. Single mommed it yesterday and I should have taken a 5 minute breather break, but kept pushing through. So today I have to pay for that decision. After bus pick up, this house is getting cleaned, I'm working out and getting my prayer on! Dear Lord, help me get out of this funk!!! I hate being in this place.
Good to the last drop. Young Living Thieves dish soap is so concentrated, I use one-third of a bottle in my dispenser and fill the rest with water. It still cuts grease using natural essential oils and botanicals and comes out of the dispenser a bit easier. You can also add your own oils for added scent if you like. When I need it, I order it on my monthly shipment and get 20% back to use toward other products our family needs and keep our budget in check. . . . #thieves #dishsoap #natural #plantpower #botanicals #grease #lemon #orange #momlife #rosemary #yleo #youngliving #younglivingessentialoils #oilymadmama #mompreneur #budgetmom #essentialrewards #goodtothelastdrop #concentrated #livewell #healthymama #oilymama #oilylife #kitchen #reallife

Why is it when we talk about cloth diapering on a budget the only answer is cheapies? There are other ways to cloth diaper and stay on budget. Take this fine pile of @imagine_baby cloth diapers that even offer warranty, customer support, and fine print choices.

One of my @goodwillhouston finds yesterday! This was a “boutique” item and was a pink sticker. Pink stickers go on sale on Saturday’s, but unfortunately I don’t know if I’ll make it back by them so I got it yesterday! Even without the discount it was $14.99!!!!!

I use Synchrony Bank High Yield Savings account for our emergency fund. I know I've seen a lot of good things about Ally bank as well! We switched over a couple of years ago from more local bank. Our interest rate there was .03%!!!! 😵😵 I had no clue how ridiculous that was until I started looking at the numbers and realizing what a waste it was! (This is true for many things we we/weren't doing with our money!) Synchrony bank is online only and FDIC insured. It's super easy to set up and we have it linked to our checking (which is through a more local bank). We do keep a chunk of money in a savings account with our local bank, so we have access to it immediately if need be. Transferring from Synchrony takes a couple of days... So that's the only downside. That being said, we also have a credit card that we can use to cover those few days if something totally major came up. If you're curious what a 2.05% interest rate would look like for your savings amount, visit their website. They have a handy little calculator to show you how much you'd make off of interest in a years time, 2 years time, etc. If you aren't sure what your bank's interest rate is... Look into it! Make sure that your money is making money! #debtfreecommunity #moneytips #budgettips #budgeting #budgetmom #moneylessons #moneytalk #homemaker #homeeconomist #sahmlife #synchronybank #savingmoney #studentloans #debtsnowball #savings #savingsaccount #moneysmart #liveintentionally #moneysaver #personalfinances
Payday is tomorrow, so I wanted to have my budget written down before then. A few things.... . This is just my budget (not including my husbands) We still have separate accounts and won’t be joining them until late December. That’s a whole other story 🙄 . We didn’t have any money set aside for Christmas, so I’m using part of this check to start buying some gifts . I recently paid my car off 😱😱🚙 and will have the lien removed from the title, so I have allotted fees for that . I plan on penny pinching every last category budgeted and using the remainder leftover at the end of Nov to snowball to my student loan principal . Make sure to me to see how well I stick to this two week budget 😬😬 • • • #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtfree #debtsnowball #debtfreeliving #daveramsey #debtfreedom #debtisdumb #debtfreegoals #budget #budgetingtips #budgeting #daveramseybabysteps #babystep2 #financialfreedom #debtsucks #budgetmom #debtpayoff #totalmoneymakeover
