17 Smoothie Recipes You Can Make in a $10 Blender

17 Smoothie Recipes You Can Make in a $10 Blender

Back when we were working to get out of debt, our blender broke, (along with our crock pot and coffee maker!) We saved up whatever was left over from our small household budget and finally bought a $10 blender on a Black Friday sale. We still haven’t replaced our cheap little blender, because we’ve found a way to make it do almost everything we need in it for only a tiny fraction of the price of the other high end blenders.

Work Life Balance for Work at Home Moms

Not too long ago, I had a particularly busy time for work. I was constantly feeling guilty for taking time in the evenings and weekends to get work done. I had no time with my husband. I could see that this was not sustainable or healthy for our family if we let it continue. Practically though, I need to work for us to make ends meet.
