I love a good thunderstorm, don’t you? Not one that does a lot of damage and hurts people of course but one that gives some good thunder boomers and rain is simply a joy for this Kansas girl’s heart.

That said, growing up in Kansas and then living in Oklahoma and now Arkansas I’ve seen my fair share of really dangerous weather and know how vital it is to be prepared. I think that living in our country’s heartland has also shown me how important God’s creation is and I think it’s important to protect that. How cool is it that we now have ways to be prepared but also be a little bit more environmentally conscious at the same time?

Being prepared for storms isn’t just a mental state of mind. It’s about having the plans and supplies you might need in place so you don’t have to worry as much when the storm clouds start rolling in.

Get tired in the afternoon? Take a break and enjoy new Stouffer's Mac Cups and Nestle Pure Life water.  What other ways do I replenish my resources in the afternoon? Find out.

 

I’m the first to admit that the schedule in the Smith household is a little “nontraditional.” With John working second shift (and lots of overtime lately) and me working from home and able to match my schedule to his, we often don’t find ourselves going to bed until 3 or 4 a.m. and getting up mid-morning. With us both working long hours, add to it the slightly oddness of those hours, and it can be easy to get worn down. I’ve learned to take better care of myself and try to take a break before I get too overworked. I recently got the opportunity through #CollectiveBias and #Walmart to talk about ways that I replenish in the afternoons and keep up #MyGoodLife in part using Nestle Pure Life water and Stouffer’s new Mac Cups.

It’s no secret that about four years ago, I was laid off from my job and that makes finances tight under any circumstances. But we both came into the marriage with high medical bills that we were paying off and we both have incurred more in the nearly six years we’ve been married. We’ve been blessed, however, to be able to continue making payments on those bills because we found ways to save money where we could. With new technology like the ability to “clip” paperless coupons from Walgreens, saving money is even more achievable.

Here’s the top ways we’ve been able to save money to get out of debt from medical bills. I share this because I know that with rising medical costs, more and more people are going to find themselves in this situation. Read More
