Hello! I’m so happy you are here! My name is Angie and I am a wife of 23 years and a mom to two teenage boys. I’ve been a stay at home mom for 10 years and quickly realized at the beginning that I needed to put systems in place so that my home would run more smoothly. Whether it was setting up a budget, learning how to meal plan, finding ways to make our household income stretch or using a cleaning routine.
The plan was to implement simple strategies so that I wouldn’t become overwhelmed with all the things that needed to be done every day. Because let’s face it. It’s a lot. Between budgeting for expenses, working, cleaning the house, thinking about dinner, preparing dinner, paying the bills, making a meal plan, carpooling and everything else. You can feel like you are running in circles.
My point is that in order to live the life that you love you need to find ways to overcome the overwhelm. My goal on Budgeting for Bliss is to help you do just that.
I want to encourage you if you’re struggling to find some kind of routine in this crazy day to day life.
I want to help you save and budget your money, organize your home, set up cleaning routines that work and even earn some extra money in the process. But, most importantly provide motivation and encouragement along the way.
I really hope you decide to join me on this journey. I would love to have you here!
⦁ I’m always on the lookout for a good side hustle. In fact, that’s what I have done for the last 10 years to help my family pay for vacations, Christmas, increase our savings and pay down debt.
⦁ I adore spending time outdoors, whether it’s hiking or having a barbecue with the family.
⦁ I’m obsessed with anything Disney especially Walt Disney World.
⦁ I’m addicted to coffee but have never been known to turn down a nice cup of hot tea.
⦁ I can’t live without my planner and I love making lists. (which is probably why I decided to make this one)
⦁ I’m a huge introvert and despite wanting to start my blog for years I kept talking myself out of it.
⦁ I’m a perfectionist and because of this, I’m really hard on myself. But, I’m working on realizing that I need to give myself grace when things don’t go as planned.
⦁ I lost 50 pounds two years ago and developed a love of fitness in the process. ( this was a huge surprise to me as I have always hated to exercise)
Thank you for visiting my blog!
