A Few of My Favorite Things
I love finding things that make my life easier, and often those things tend to be something a friend recommended. Friend recommendations are so much better than a random ad on facebook, am I right? So as one friend to another, I want to share some of my favorite things with you!
I do get some kickback for purchases made with some of these links, and I want to be upfront about that. With that said, I care too much about my audience to ever recommend something I don't use thoroughly and love 100%. These are the things I use every day and would tell you about regardless! Being paid to do it just allows me to make some passive income so I can have more time and freedom to keep bringing you the free, quality content you love. Win-win!
Plan to Eat
Meal Planning and Grocery Shopping
I used to DREAD every Monday when it came time to do my meal planning and grocery shopping. I was on a tight budget, and planning my meals was the only way I could eat the kind of quality foods I wanted to be able to eat for my health. And then, one day, I found Plan to Eat.

Easy to Use Graphic Design Software
Canva is an easy to use graphic design software with thousands of professionally designed templates, intuitive tools, and easy file export. If you are looking to manage your own social media, this is a great software to have in your arsenal. I use this software every day, and prefer it to Adobe on simple projects because of how fast it is to create on-brand materials. You can do a lot on the free plan, and the upgrade is only $12.95 a month, which is about half of Adobe's monthly subscription fee.
