I don’t blog about blogging. So how can I make money blogging?

“I don’t blog about blogging.  So how can I make money blogging?”  How many times have we heard other bloggers say this or even said it to ourselves?  In the world of blogging, it is a truth that we all know: the big, well-known bloggers out there making five and six-figure incomes each month are blogging about blogging!  And selling books, and e-courses, and access to mastermind private groups—all to teach the little blogger how to make money blogging.

How to make Money as a Blogger. If you are a blogger who doesn't blog about blogging, but want to monetize your blog, you need to do this! #bloggingtips #blogger

So why doesn’t everyone that buys these items turn into a millionaire blogger?  I can’t honestly say, because, well, I’ve never actually paid for any of these books, e-courses, or private groups.  But I have taken a bunch of free webinars and courses and found quite a bit of good in those.  Now, I’m definitely not bashing anyone who makes money from teaching others how to be successful in this industry—that’s the beauty of a free market!

But sometimes, it just seems that the only way to make money as a blogger is to sell blogging resources.  I can’t be alone in this feeling, can I?

How to make money blogging:

So can a small blog or a medium-sized blog make money?

The answer is: Absolutely, YES!  Okay, great…. But how?

Ads

I’m going to go ahead and get the most obvious one out of the way first.  If you’ve been blogging for even five minutes, you have probably figured out how to set up Adsense.  Keep in mind, until you have a lot of people visiting your blog, ads won’t bring in much revenue.  Of course, there are other ad networks to join, like Mediavine or AdThrive.  As you may notice, I don’t have a ton of ads on my blog just because I think it detracts from the user experience I don’t like trying to read an article and having ads popping-up or slowing down the page when I am the user, so I try to think of that when formatting my own blog…

Affiliate Links

You can sign up as an affiliate through several Networks to partner up with several companies:

This is only a few, but it’s a good start…  With affiliate programs, you can embed links to products that you have an affiliate relationship with and get paid a commission when someone clicks through to purchase.  The good news is that it doesn’t cost the buyer any extra than if they were just shopping on their own, but you get paid a fee for sending over the referral.

Or you may just come across products that you love and they ask for you to refer other people to them and they will give you a “thank you” for referring new customers (you don’t even need to have a blog to find these, but if you are a blogger, you can incorporate these types of links into posts as well!)… one of my favorites is Home Chef.

Of course, if you’ve been blogging long enough, you know there are affiliate links for blogging tools as well.  Such as Tailwind for boosting Pinterest engagement, Milotree to gain social media followers, and Bluehost for website hosting.

Sponsored Posts

Once you have been blogging for a little while and have built up your audience, you can actually apply for paid opportunities to write sponsored content.  These are product and campaign specific, you need to make sure that you are applying for campaigns that fit into your blog niche.

Yes, you want to make money, but every post you write should also be building your blog’s brand.

There are several places that you can go to get sponsored posts.  A few of my favorites are:

Working with Brands

Of course, once you have been publishing content online long enough, you may get contacted by various companies looking for freelance work or sponsored content for specific clients or projects.  Most companies that reach out to you will probably be within your niche of writing because they are looking for bloggers and freelance writers with an audience to help spread the word about a product or service that they are looking to sponsor content about.  Obviously, not everyone that reaches out to you will be a fit, so don’t feel bad about turning down a sponsored post opportunity.  You are much better off to stay true to your personal brand and your blog’s brand rather than feeling like you are “selling out” just to make a few bucks.

Become an Affiliate for a Specific Product

You can take the time and energy to create your own product, but you certainly don’t have to!  There are a ton of great products already out there and you can sign up to be an affiliate with them.  I would suggest becoming an affiliate for products that you have used and love and can somehow incorporate into your blog posts or a newsletter easily.

Here are some examples of products that I have signed up to be an affiliate for:

Social Warfare plugin—this is for social media sharing on your blog.  I found out that I needed this because it is one of the only plugins out there that can actually recover your social share counts on blog posts after implementing an SSL certificate on your website.  It’s something that I use and have found useful, so I am confident recommending it to others.

Pinteresting Strategies by Carly Campbell—Carly has used Pinterest to drive so much traffic to her blog and I can say that she has truly mastered Pinterest (or at least in my opinion!).  Regardless, this book is a great resource for bloggers and is relatively inexpensive, so it really is worth the investment to help you grow your blog.

Bloggers Tell All Facebook group—this group has lots of resources.  There are lots of tips, tricks, and advice from some very successful bloggers, so it is a paid group.  But, you can also make a bit of money as an affiliate for referring other people to the group.  Check it out and see if your blog grows. Okay, I know I said I never paid for any of these things—and that was true until I decided to try this group.  I had lots of blogger friends recommend it, so I’ve been a part of it for two weeks now and really like it (but the good news is that you can cancel at any time if you decide to…)

Promote Your Own Business

I decided a few years ago that starting my own side business was something that I wanted to do.  Of course, I realized that it wouldn’t make me rich overnight, but it is something that I can build over the years to help make my retirement a bit more comfortable.  I also like that fact that building my own business is actually something that I can pass on to my kids someday… so I started two businesses—both are completely done online.  So my initial investment was extremely low and so are the on-going costs.  First, I found companies that I already loved the products.  If you personally like something and can personally recommend it to others, then you may as well get paid for it, right?! Then I decided to partner with them directly to earn money.

My first business is Juice Plus+ .  I absolutely love these whole food supplements and plant-based protein shakes!  Not only do I take them, but my entire family does—even the kids love them because they have chewable gummies that really tasty!  If your kids are like mine, you will have to cut them off from eating too many at once!  This is something I believe in because I have seen and felt the changes in my own body (migraine free for over 2½ years now!!) and I just know that this helps bridge the gap in our diets of not getting enough fruits and vegetables.

My second business is Rodan+Fields.  Again, I use and love these products—especially the ones for anti-aging!  They work for my skin and I have had great results, so I am able to share them very honestly with others.  Of course, they have several product lines to help with all types of skincare needs.  And again, I am able to grow my own business this way.

I definitely think that everyone should have a their own business on the side… you may want to check out these Side Hustles that will Actually Give You a Full Time Income for more great ideas on how to start your own business with very little start-up costs…

Referral Links

The reason that I love referral links is because you don’t even have to be a bloggers to take advantage of these!  But the nice thing is that with a blog, you can probably incorporate them into posts for further reach.  These are links that you can get from companies that you already buy from and love, so you can get account credit or money off on future purchases every time you refer someone to them who makes a purchase.  Some of my personal favorites are:

I love a good cookout, don’t you?  But a cookout is way more than just grilling up some burgers and opening a bag of chips.  So, for my next cookout, I’m making these fresh fruit kabobs with a lowfat yogurt dip as a light, refreshing and healthy dessert!  And now, Giant Eagle has made hosting a get together even better by slashing prices on so many of the items that I need for a cookout, but also on the items that my family already uses every day!Fresh Fruit Kabobs with Healthy Coconut Yogurt Dip // Money Savvy Living #fruitkabobs #yogurtdip #GiantEagleSlashedPrices

 

Spring is here, the weather is starting to warm up, and I am getting ready for all the fun cookouts that we will have this spring and summer!  One of the things that I enjoy the most about spring and summer is that there is so much fresh fruit that is in-season, and it makes a wonderful dessertespecially when paired with a delicious fruit dip!

I made the kabobs using strawberries, blueberries, melon, mango, grapes, marshmallows, prunes, and yogurt covered cranberries.  But, of course, you can use any fruits that you like…

Wash and cut all fruit.  Make sure to cut fruit into approximately 1 inch chunks so they are bite-size, yet large enough to not break when put on the skewer. Alternate ingredients on skewers.

 

Enjoy!

These 2 ingredient, cake mix and soda cupcakes couldn’t be any easier to make just get a box of orange cake mix and a can of orange soda and you will have a decadent dessert!  This recipe also adds a cream cheese center and is topped with an easy marshmallow frosting.  Easy and tasty the perfect dessert!

I like to think of these cupcakes as a semi-homemade recipe.  They aren’t made from scratch, but they are way more than just buying a box of cake mix and a can of icing!

What I like about this cake mix and soda concept is that you could use so many different combinations and flavors of cake mix and soda… or even juice.  For this recipe, a healthier alternative than using the orange soda would be to use an orange flavored sparkling water, such as La Croix Orange Sparkling Water.

5 Ways You Need to get Prepared for a Road Trip

5 Ways You Need to get Prepared for a Road Trip

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EarthDayDriveAway #CollectiveBias #ad

Going on a road trip can be a lot of fun! Being able to drive to your vacation destination rather than flying can save quite a bit of money too.  But before you pull out of your driveway, there are five ways that you need to get prepared for a road trip.

5 Ways You Need to Get Prepared for a Road Trip // Money Savvy Living

Give your car an oil change and check-up

Any time that you plan on taking a road trip, you should make sure that your car is in tip-top shape.  The last thing that you want is to be hundreds of miles from home and have a breakdown.  One of the easiest ways to make sure that your car is prepared for a road trip is to take it to the Walmart Auto Care Center.

5 Things You Need to do to Prepare for a Road Trip // Money Savvy LivingRecently, our family went to Niagara Falls over spring break, and before going, I took the car to the Walmart Auto Care Center.  For only $44.88, I was able to get an oil change with Mobil 1™ synthetic oil—which is made to protect more than my car’s engine; this synthetic oil reduces the amount of oil changes needed, and reduces oil consumption leading to less waste overall.  Included with the oil change, the technicians at the Walmart Auto Care Center also check the power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid, air filter, tire pressure, battery, and tire tread (upon request).  No appointment necessary, and it only took about 25 minutes—and the car was all set for our little road trip!

I love the fact that Mobil 1 ™ has a smaller carbon footprint than conventional motor oils**  So it feels good to know that I am able to make a choice that is better for the environment…

5 Ways You Need to Get Prepared for a Road Trip // Money Savvy Living

If you want to change your oil and do the check-up on your own, you can also buy the oil off the shelf at Walmart as well.  There are several options to choose from, so if you aren’t exactly sure which type of oil your car needs, you can use this Oil Selector Tool at Walmart.com.

And now, through April 30, 2018, you can also enter the Earth Day Drive Away for a chance to win a Chevy Equinox!  There are two ways to enter for a chance to win:

  1. By purchasing 5 quarts of Mobil 1™ in the store or a Mobil 1™ oil change at the Auto Care Center
  2. By recycling any used oil at an Auto Care Center

As a bonus, if you purchase 5 quarts of Mobil 1™ synthetic oil or a Mobil 1™ synthetic oil change at the Auto Care Center, you are also eligible to receive a $10 Select Certificate valid on a future Mobil 1™ purchase at Walmart.  Obviously, it is very important to make sure the used oil is adequately disposed of. You can bring the oil to Walmart for proper recycling while getting another chance to enter to win the sweepstakes.

5 Ways You Need to Get Prepared for a Road Trip // Money Savvy Living

Once shoppers have made a qualifying Mobil 1™ purchase or recycled any used oil at Walmart, they can enter to win the Chevy Equinox and receive their $10 Walmart Select Certificate at Earth Day Drive Away.

*Limit 2 entries in the sweepstakes per customer (1 for purchasing and 1 for recycling).

*Receipt required to receive $10 Walmart Select Certificate.

 

Pack a first-aid kit

I like to keep a first aid kit in my car at all times anyways, but I always check to make sure it is fully stocked with a variety of bandage sizes, antiseptic pads, and ointment before leaving on a road trip.  As a mother, this is a must with three boys—scratches are inevitable, so I want to be ready for them.   Plus, the last thing that I want is my little guy to be crying with a cut on his finger and be in need of a bandage and I have no idea where the nearest store is to buy any.  Having these items on-hand not only is a time-saver, but makes the trip less stressful because we can easily fix the little bumps and scratches in life…

 

Map it

Even though almost everyone has access to GPS or a map app on their smartphone, it is still a good idea to have paper maps of your vacation route.  You just never know when your internet access will be limited or not available, so make sure that you are prepared by having maps printed out ahead of time so that you can still navigate to your destination if your GPS isn’t working.  Also have addresses and phone numbers of hotels and attractions written down—you can always stop and ask for directions if all else fails.

 

Snacks and Entertainment

You can save a lot of time and money by packing snacks and water, instead of stopping every time someone is thirsty or hungry.  Also make sure to bring movies, electronic devices, and music—especially to entertain your little ones.  Of course, you could try the good, old-fashioned spot the different states license plate game to help pass the time…

 

Prepare for the “what if”

Lastly, you need to bring a bag that pretty much prepares you for any circumstance that might arise while you are away from home.  Be sure to pack: rain ponchos, ibuprofen, cough drops, mosquito repellent, sunglasses, sunscreen, and even a small roadside emergency kit.  Preparing for the “what if” isn’t stuff that you will necessarily need… but might need, so you want to be prepared.  This can save you money too, because having to buy sunglasses or medicine at a convenience store or at a resort will cost you a premium.

Spring is in the air… and baseball season is here! What better way to kick off baseball season than with a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY?! Of course, the main attraction for us was the Baseball Hall of Fame, but this quaint little town has a lot more to offer… here are a few tips to help you when planning your trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Our middle son turned 10 years old this year. And it just so happened that his birthday fell over Spring Break. So he had asked if we could go to the Baseball Hall of Fame for his birthday. Well, you gotta do something special to celebrating reaching double-digits, right? So, we planned our Spring Break around his birthday wish… and it was a great, family friendly vacation!

Of course it was fun to just browse through all of the memorabilia, but kids were given a fact finding sheet to fill out as we went through the exhibits. It was fun for the kids to hunt for the specific answers, but if they filled it out, they also got to turn it in at the end for a pack of baseball cards– which is a fun (and free) souvenir!

Ticket prices were very reasonable, but a good money-saving tip for you is that **Veterans get to take advantage of a half-price ticket and children 6 and under get in for FREE!

 

Hotel Accommodations: Railroad Inn

Cooperstown, NY, is a charming little town. Just being there gives you the small-town-America feeling; it just feels like the perfect spot to celebrate America’s iconic pastime of baseball.

You won’t find any huge chain hotels here, but are met with bed-and-breakfasts, and small, quaint hotels.Planning Your Trip to Cooperstown, NY and the Baseball Hall of Fame // Money Savvy Living #thisisCooperstown #CNY

We stayed at the Railroad Inn, which is a recently-renovated, old train station. This historic building, originally built in 1890 has a nostalgic charm and character from the outside, but is a state-of-the-art boutique hotel on the inside. The room we stayed in had a loft, which the kids absolutely loved! The rooms were very clean and furnished with what I would call modern farmhouse décor. It was very spacious, comfortable, and felt like being at home…

We did a walk-through of our room on Facebook LIVE, so you can click right here to check that out!

When we got in to town, we were a bit hungry, so we decided to check out the local scene. We didn’t get very far from our hotel and found New York Pizzeria. Since we were visiting New York, we definitely wanted to get some authentic New York style pizza!

Fly Creek Cider Mill

Our last stop was at the Fly Creek Cider Mill, just a few miles away from Cooperstown in the neighboring town of Fly Creek. Since we were here in March, we definitely missed peak season, which, of course, would be in the summer and fall. However, the mill was recently renovated and now is open year-round. The mill is family owned and operated, and offers a huge array of their own Fly Creek Cider Mill brand foods… from homemade apple pies, apple salsa, and apple frost wine, to their family’s own recipe for molasses cookies! You can taste samples of several items throughout the store on your visit there as well.

When our family decided to visit Niagara Falls over spring break, I thought it’d be the perfect mini-vacation for our family.  My husband and boys have never seen the falls and I remember my parents taking my sister and I as kids, and I was absolutely mystified by the falls—especially when they were illuminated at night!  So seeing the beauty of Mother Nature was really my only expectation when I started planning, but soon after I contacted Niagara Falls Tourism, I realized that there was so much more to do in Niagara Falls than just looking at the falls!

 

We had a great time on our visit to Niagara Falls!  As a mom, I want to find activities for the whole family to enjoy, but also that won’t break my budget.  But before I share all of the great things to do with you, I want to tell you about a GIVEAWAY worth over $300 in restaurant gift cards and activities passes for Niagara Falls!  I have teamed up with Niagara Falls Tourism and some local attractions to be able to offer you a chance to win the following:

  • $200 gift certificates to Ruby Tuesday (valid at the Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, Ontario location only)
  • 5 Fun by the Falls complimentary admission passes (over $100 value):

Okay, now on to all the family friendly things that we did in Niagara Falls.  Obviously, many of these things can be enjoyed year-round, but a lot of what we did can also be enjoyed even when it’s a bit cold or rainy— which was good for us, because it ended up being both cold and rainy while we were there!

 

Waterpark Resort

We stayed at the Americana Conference Resort Spa & Waterpark.  One of the main things we liked about this resort was that it had a waterpark.  The kids were very excited about it!  It also had a nice spa, game room, and restaurant at the resort.  We literally could have just spent the entire day at the resort and had lots of fun.

It was only three miles from the falls, so it was close and convenient to everything—especially with a WEGO stop right at the resort.  The WEGO is a bussing system in Niagara Falls that connects tourist attractions with resorts in the area.  Buses run every 30 minutes (and we found that the schedule is very reliable!), so you don’t have to wait very long to catch a bus to get to your next destination.  It also is a bit of a money-saver.  Some of the attractions are a few miles apart, so unless you have your walking shoes on, you probably wouldn’t want to have to drive and pay parking at each area that you visit.  (**You can also get a WEGO ticket as part of the Wonder Pass for Niagara Parks instead of purchasing it separately to save a bit of money too… we’ll be talking about the Wonder Pass a bit later…)

Horseshoe Falls

Obviously, the falls are the main attraction—and probably what you think of when you picture Niagara Falls.  And they are definitely worth seeing!  While they are beautiful during the day, you also won’t want to miss seeing that falls when they are illuminated each night.

We were able to get a few pictures later in the day after the fog lifted!

We did get to see the falls illuminated from the SkyWheel… awesome view of the falls and the city!  It was hard to get a good picture because the SkyWheel is enclosed, so taking a picture through the window of the passenger cabin didn’t turn out so well, but the view in person is beautiful!

Niagara Parks

Most all of the Niagara Parks attractions are along the 7 kilometer stretch of the Niagara Parkway, which runs along the Niagara River.  Make sure that you check out the Wonder Pass or Adventure Pass (depending on the time of year you visit) to save anywhere from 40-60% off attractions at Niagara Parks.  You can also buy tickets online or at the Table Rock Welcome Centre, where you can buy souvenirs, grab a bite to eat, and start visiting the attractions.

Niagara’s Fury

We started out at Niagara’s Fury, and this is where I would suggest that any visitor start.  First of all, it is an interactive attraction with a 360 degree movie screen that creatively recounts the history of the formation of Niagara Falls—trust me, even your kids will love this!  And secondly, because it is interactive, you might get a little damp, so they hand out ponchos for experiencing the attraction.  For us, these came in handy all day because it was raining outside.  If you don’t need it, you can turn it in to be recycled after the ride, or you can do like we did, and keep it so you stay dry all day.

Journey Behind the Falls

The next stop we made was Journey Behind the Falls.  If you are like me, you probably had no idea that you could actually go behind the falls!  Believe it or not, there are tunnels that go behind the falls in a couple of spots and for an up-close view at the side of Horseshoe Falls.  You won’t want to miss this experience!

Butterfly Conservatory

There is way more to see than just the falls though.  The Butterfly Conservatory is open year-round and will delight you with all of the 45 species of butterflies floating around!

Bird Kingdom is also a great family-friendly activity. It is the world’s largest free-flying indoor aviary.  We were scheduled to go here on our last day, unfortunately, we had to cut our final day activities short due to a trip to the ER… not a major emergency, however, we learned some good lessons about how to deal with an emergency while on vacation…

 

Clifton Hill

The Clifton Hill area provides entertainment for the whole family.  There is so much to do, but don’t just start going through the attractions individually—you can save a lot of money by purchasing a Fun Pass, a Ripley’s Combo Ticket, or Fun at the Falls Combo Ticket.  I have listed the activities that are associated with each pass so you can get an idea of what might be of interest to your family…

ENTERTAINMENT:

Fun Pass

SkyWheel—another must-see attraction!  We rode in the SkyWheel after dark so we could see the falls while they were illuminated.  It was also a really cool view of the Skylon Tower and local casinos…

Zombie Attack

Movieland Wax Museum

Dinosaur Adventure Golf

Midway—the combo ticket includes 5 coins for the Midway, which is an arcade.  This is also where you can ride the Wild West Coaster and the Ghost Blaster Dark Ride.  This place is huge and definitely has games that the parents can enjoy too!  **Just a side note from a mother’s perspective here… this was a very nice and clean arcade (even the bathrooms were clean!).

 

Ripley’s Combo Ticket

Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks—as you can see, my kids and husband had fun posing with the wax figures…

GREAT FOOD:

Kelsey’s Original Roadhouse—Kelsey’s was casual, modern steakhouse dining.  The food was good and the service was good!  It was a great family friendly and budget friendly restaurant!

Ruby Tuesday—this restaurant is located right in the middle of all the action on Clifton Hill… much like Kelsey’s, it’s great food and very family friendly and budget friendly.

Greg Frewin Theatre

There is really no other way to describe this other than an awesome experience!

About an hour before the show, we arrived and had plenty of time to enjoy the delicious buffet.  Normally, I am not interested in going to a buffet, but this was a private buffet that went along with the show, so it had the feel of a buffet that you get at a wedding or your company Christmas party.  The food was flavorful and high quality.  Drinks were not included, but there was an option to buy a pitcher of a beverage for the entire table, which was a nice, budget friendly option!

Now for the magic show.  You. Will. Be. AMAZED.  It really should be no surprise that a world-renowned magician would put on a mesmerizing show, nonetheless, we were absolutely impressed with how good the show actually was.  If you’ve ever seen illusions like this on TV, it is very easy to think that there must be editing or something that is “hiding” the secret.  But actually sitting there and seeing his show in person, I am still confounded at how he did many of the feats.  This is a definite must-see attraction when in Niagara Falls!

Oh, and my son Braylon actually got to be a part of the show… so it is interactive with the audience as well!

Skylon Tower

What can I say?  You definitely must visit the Skylon Tower when you are in Niagara Falls.  This is an experience that you won’t get anywhere else in the city.  First of all, the Skylon Tower has an observation deck that allows you to get a bird’s eye view of the Falls.  You can ride the elevator, which has glass so you can see the city as you ride to the top, as you go up to the observation deck or the restaurant.

Family Friendly Things to do in Niagara Falls // Money Savvy Living #NiagaraFalls #exploreniagara #visitniagara #SkylonTower

This is one part of our trip that we were the most disappointed about— the weather wasn’t working with us at all, it was terribly rainy and the fog was so thick, we literally couldn’t see anything on our visit to the Skylon Tower.  Super disappointing, but a great reminder that we could still have an awesome time, even when things don’t go according to plan!

Here’s a picture of our view that day from the Skylon Tower:

Mother Nature definitely wasn’t working with us, but we were able to still have an absolutely wonderful lunch in the Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room.  I guess on the positive side, it felt like we were dining in a cloud with all of that fog surrounding the tower!  I imagine that being able to look out over the falls and the city—day or night—would have been an epic experience.  This is definitely on the list for the next time we go back—hopefully the weather will cooperate!

Family Friendly Things to do in Niagara Falls // Money Savvy Living #NiagaraFalls #exploreniagara #visitniagara #SkylonTower

We went for lunch, and had delicious food.  Now, this is a pretty fancy restaurant—and I have to say, we definitely felt under-dressed—but because it was during the day, other guests seemed to be dressed more casual like we were.  I imagine, people dress a bit more formal for evening.  Menu items were a bit pricey, but the food is worth it, and, I’m sure, so is the view.  It really was a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

We packed a lot into the three days that we were there, and definitely could have stayed longer because there was so much to do!

7 Foods to Use as Natural Dye for Easter Eggs

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

I have been trying to remove processed foods, preservatives, and artificial flavors from the foods that I buy and from the meals that I make for my family. That is why I was so excited to see the article posted on eMeals that uses natural products, that you probably already have in your kitchen pantry, to dye Easter eggs!

Usually, I just let the kids color the eggs and then we throw them out because the chemicals and dye soak through the egg shell and into the egg white. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to eat that and I certainly don’t want my kids eating that! This year, we won’t have to waste those beautifully colored eggs because we will be using fruits, vegetables, and juices to color our eggs.

7 Foods to Use as Natural Dye for Easter Eggs // Money Savvy Living #Easter #eastereggs #naturalfoodcoloring

Red:
Use pomegranate juice or canned cherries with syrup.

Blue:
Boil 4 cups of water. Cut 1/4 of a head of red cabbage into chunks and add to water. Stir in 2 Tablespoons vinegar. Let cool to room temperature and remove cabbage with a slotted spoon.

Pink:
Boil 4 cups of water. Chop 1 medium beet and add to water. Stir in 2 Tablespoons vinegar and let cool to room temperature; remove beets. OR if you have cranberry juice on hand, you can use it.

Yellow:
Boil 1 cup of water. Stir 2 Tablespoons turmeric and add 2 teaspoons white vinegar.

Lavender:
Mix 1 cup grape juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar.

Orange:
Take the skin of 6 yellow onions and simmer in 2 cups water for 15 minutes; strain. Add 3 teaspoons white vinegar.

Green:
Peel the skin from 6 red onions and simmer in 2 cups water for 15 minutes; strain. Add 3 teaspoons white vinegar. OR if you have spinach on hand you could use spinach in boiled water.

 

*You should note that using all natural dyes tends to yield lighter colored eggs. If you would like darker colors, you may want to let them set overnight in the refrigerator.

 

 

If you are looking for colorful cookies, without using food coloring or dyes, check out my Easter Drop Sugar Cookies.  I use blackberries, strawberries, lemons, and limes for color and flavor!  And they are so pretty too!

Copycat Orange Julius Smoothie

Copycat Orange Julius

Copycat Orange Julius // Money Savvy Living #smoothie #orangejulius

 

A smoothie from Orange Julius is one of my favorite treats! I remember the taste of an Orange Julius as a kid and thinking that it tasted like a creamsicle in the form of a drink—so good! And my kids and their cousins absolutely love this Orange Julius copycat recipe!

Even though these smoothies are a relatively healthy treat, it can get pretty expensive to buy them very often for the kids.  But there’s no reason to go out for them when you can make one that tastes so similar at home!

 

 

Copycat Orange Julius Smoothie

In a blender, add the following:

  • ¾ cup orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ice, add a few cubes at a time until desired consistency
  • ¼ cup Vanilla Juice Plus+ Complete protein** (optional to add a little protein boost!)

 

Blend until smooth…and enjoy!

5 Steps You Need to Take to Repair Your Credit

5 Steps You Need to Take to Repair Your Credit

This post has been sponsored by Lexington Law.  All opinions are honestly conveyed and are mine alone.

Have you ever applied for a credit card and only qualified for one with an extremely high interest rate?  Or applied for a loan to finance the purchase of a new car and been turned down?  If so, there may be items showing up on your credit report that are dragging your score down.  But don’t worry, there are steps that you can take to clean up your credit report and repair your credit score.

5 Steps You Need to Take to Repair Your Credit // Money Savvy Living #creditrepair

 

So what all goes into your credit score?

A credit score is a number ranging from 300-850.  Creditors use this compilation number to evaluate the risk of extending credit to you.  But your credit score isn’t just one number—you actually have three credit scores.  There are three different credit bureaus: Transunion, Experian, and Equifax. These agencies receive information about you from your current creditors and assemble that information into a credit risk score. Some creditors send and receive information from only one credit bureau, some use all three. Each credit bureau only uses the information—both good and bad—that is supplied to it by the creditors that utilize that particular bureau.

Your credit score is decided by several factors, including:

  • Number of accounts that you have open
  • Type of accounts
  • Level of debt, as compared to available credit
  • Length of credit history
  • Payment history
  • Number of recent credit inquiries

5 Steps You Need to Take to Repair Your Credit // Money Savvy Living #creditrepair

It is important to regularly review your credit report to make sure that the information reporting on you is accurate and up-to-date.  If old accounts are showing up or negative items have not been cleared, they may be damaging your score.  It is also critical to review your credit to make sure that no fraudulent activity is taking place.

How do I fix my credit?

If you find that your credit is less than perfect, don’t worry.  There are some steps that you can take to resolve credit disputes, fix your credit, and increase your score.

  1. Request a copy of your credit report. In order to know what you need to fix, you need to know what is showing up on your credit report.  You can request a copy of your credit report by contacting each credit bureau individually, or you can use a credit repair service to get a free copy of your credit report and a free credit repair consultation.
  2. Start making on-time payments. If you have accounts that you are making late payments on, try to get those caught up.  Remember, a payment is not actually reported late to the credit bureau unless it is 30 days (or more) late.  It can be really hard to catch up when you are in a cycle of making late payments, but moving that timeline up so that the creditors are reporting on-time payments will really boost your credit score.
  3. Only apply for credit cards that you need.  It may be tempting to apply for a store card to take advantage of a special discount or free gift.  However, you should only apply for and open credit cards that you need.  Having too many open accounts might actually be tempting you to use credit more oftencausing you to spend more than you would otherwise.
  4. Pay off or settle any bad debts. Old collection accounts can be truly detrimental to your credit score.  If you currently have any accounts that are in collections, see if you can negotiate a settlement amount with the creditor or collection company.  While the creditor would ideally like to collect the entire amount, including late fees and interest, they may be willing to settle and consider your account paid in full for a lower amount.  Trying to negotiate a payoff or settlement amount can be overwhelming on your own, so you may want to consider consulting a credit repair company to help walk you through the process.
  5. Get old or inaccurate items updated. Just because you paid off an old account or a collection account doesn’t mean that it was properly reported to the credit bureau.  So, if you have any accounts still showing up as outstanding, get a letter from the creditor showing that the account has been paid in full and that you are requesting that the account be closed.  Once you have this letter, you can send it in to the credit bureau to update.

Even when you know the steps to take to help repair your credit, it may be that you need some help to navigate through the entire credit repair process.  That is where Lexington Law credit repair service can help.  Working with professionals who know exactly what to do and how to follow up will get your credit report cleared up quickly and accurately.
