I buy everything online because… well who has time to go to the store when you’re juggling a family and a biz, am I right? This store is amazing. They have beautiful, unique clothes in all sizes. And the prices are totally and pleasantly affordable!
Formerly E-Pantry. This is where I purchase all my household cleaners and toiletries. They sell natural, environmentally clean, and affordable household items. Everything you can imagine is in this store. You can check it out here.
So I’ll let you in on a little secret… I color my hair. Have since I was 15. Needless to say, by the time I reached my 30s my hair was a brittle mess. In came Madison Reed, and I couldn’t be happier. It just killed me every time I had to go to the salon. They’d charge me a fortune for something I knew I could do myself. I found Madison Reed a few years ago and loved it right away. They send you everything you need in your personalized kit. It’s totally affordable. And you can feel great about it because it’s free of parabens, ammonia, phthalates, resorcinol, gluten and PPD.
Now this is my favorite money saving tip. We switched to Amazon Fire TV after being sick over the high cost of satellite. With this little device you will get access to thousands of shows and movies for a low one-time fee of $99.99. Seriously, this one little trick has saved us hundreds on our entertainment bill.
Oooh, I love me some essential oils! This is by far my favorite essential oils company. You can read why here. Ultimately, for the purposes of this page, you need to know that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get quality oils. This company delivers quickly, has excellent customer service, and has a Kid Safe line too!
I’ll admit that my daily burn has sometimes turned into my monthly burn, but if you love fitness or just want to squeeze in 15 minutes of movement, this is a no brainer. Daily Burn is a membership site where you can stream unlimited online workouts for only $12.95. This will be perfect for you if you’re like me and you don’t have the time or the child care set up to go to a traditional gym.
This is gold. And if you’ve read any of my blog related posts you know why I love it so much. After only one day of implementing just a few of the strategies, my blog traffic tripled! There is no fluff in this program. It’s filled with actionable strategies that you can use to grow your blog right away. The best part is the spreadsheet of all the best blogs, Pinterest boards, and Facebook groups for your niche. No more guessing where to spend your time.
This is for those of you monetizing or wishing to monetize your blog. It’s a one-stop-shop for affiliate marketing. You can join several affiliate programs and they will all be housed within the Share A Sale framework. Everything in one place makes it super easy to use, and I’m all about simple and easy. You’ll have your links, banners, commission earnings, everything in one spot.
I LOVE this resource! IZEA matches content creators, you, with advertisers. You will be matched with opportunities specifically for your niche. They have sponsored post opportunities, tweets, posts, etc. This is a great source for an extra stream of income.
Pinterest fanatics rejoice! Board Booster will automatically pin to your group boards on a schedule that you specify. Since using this tool, my traffic from Pinterest has grown three-fold. It is easy, effective, and very affordable at only $10 per month! I have found it to be one of the best investments for my blog.
This is web hosting at its finest. I recently switched from another hosting company after having no service on my site for an entire day! I am so happy I made the switch. SiteGround provides excellent service starting at only $3.95 per month. It was super easy to set up and I’ve had no issues. Works great with WordPress!
I’ve made the switch from Mail Chimp to Active Campaign and I couldn’t be happier. When you make the switch, you will increase engagement, convert more customers, and grow your business faster with smart email marketing, intelligent marketing automation, and automated sales pipelines. I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner.
