10 Ways To Have “Enough”

I came across this list of “10 ways to have enough money and stuff”. Although I slightly disagree with numbers 6 and 7 (I think these can be good if you do it responsibly) I agree with most of it, and I especially love the first item….”Redefine enough.” It’s all about perspective and expectations. What do you think of this list?

Week In Review: 7/20-7/26

I got nothing, NOTHING! Seriously. The only thing I have for this week is that my awesome friends got a new gazebo for their deck and gave me their old one! That’s pretty neat…those things aren’t cheap! I’ll post pictures once it’s all assembled…hopefully next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Can you save money with BB Cream?

The BB Cream trend may be so last year, but I was pondering something during my morning routine the other day…can a BB cream save you money?

I don’t wear a ton of makeup, but I currently use a combination of this Maybelline foundation stick over top of my moisturizer.  The foundation is about $5.99 at the cheapest. I’m not terribly picky about my moisturizer brand and usually go with whatever I can find a deal on, so I’ll spend around $9 to $12. So this little combination runs me $15-$18.

Now my only real criteria for moisturizer is that it has some SPF. BB creams come with a variety of magical potions, but finding one with SPF is pretty easy. The different varieties of BB creams really run the price spectrum, but awhile ago I picked up this Garnier BB cream that is about $9.99. It’s lightly tinted just like my foundation stick and has SPF just like I require. I could save $5 to $8 by making the switch next time I run out of foundation and moisturizer….

Foundation and SPF...hmm...

BB cream could be a good multitasking product! Cuts down on expenses and bathroom clutter, plus it’s one less step in the morning. What do you think? Have you made the swap to multitasking products like BB cream?
