Are you a Target shopper? Target is one of my favorite places to shop because you can get everything you need in one stop. Plus, Target offers great prices compared to many other retail stores. You might be surprised to learn that you can save even more money while shopping there just by using a few extra tricks and tips.
When you’re a new blogger, you might be wondering how to make this whole blogging thing work to turn your brand-new blog into a successful and profitable one. You have to brainstorm blog posts, write and promote those posts, start an email list, write to your subscribers, try to increase your pageviews, etc. It can all be very overwhelming.
Have you been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo? This new Netflix show is all the rage right now. Organization guru Marie Kondo uses her KonMari method to help people declutter their homes, bringing increased order and happiness into their lives. My husband and I watched a few episodes together when it first came out earlier this month.
In 2018, after months of frustration trying to use Pinterest to grow From Pennies to Plenty, I decided to learn how to use it strategically. I’m happy to say that my Pinterest numbers and blog traffic have been going up. There are several reasons for this. Besides being more strategic with my pinning, I’ve been making pins that appeal to viewers.
This week I’m taking a step back from writing about the usual topics of personal finance and reselling thrifted clothes to introduce a new topic to From Pennies to Plenty, specifically blogging. Over the past 1-2 years, I’ve been growing FP2P from a hobby blog into a profitable business. This is consistent with my ever-growing love of side hustles and entrepreneurship.
Pinterest. As a blogger, just hearing that word conjures up strong emotions. Some bloggers love Pinterest while others hate it. Most bloggers know that Pinterest can drive insane amounts of traffic to your site. What blogger wouldn't want that? But getting yourself established on Pinterest to the point that you're bringing in those big numbers, well, that can be maddening.
Hello again! Valentine’s Day is only about a month away. I’ve been thinking about what to get the man in my life. Is it just me or are guys hard to shop for? Maybe the men I know don’t need or ask for a lot, but every holiday, I’m left scratching my head over what to get them. I’ve done a lot of brainstorming to come up with some budget-friendly ideas for this holiday.
Hi friends! I’ve got Valentine’s Day on my mind. What to do? What to wear? What to give? When you think about your honey, you may want to give him or her the moon and stars. Those may be hard to reach, however, and more earthly things have to substitute. Here’s a guide to some of the best budget-friendly gifts to help you pick that perfect gift for your special someone.
With the new year here, you might be motivated to improve your financial situation. Last year I had some serious plans to do the same come January 1st. I was going to plan my meals, cut back on eating out, put more money into savings, and so forth. I’m happy to say that I made some improvements in a few areas, although it’s overall still a work in progress.
Now that we’re well into January, you might be tired of hearing about New Year’s resolutions. I like making resolutions for myself at the start of the year, but hearing about them and seeing articles about them everywhere can be overwhelming. It’s a lot of the same advice too: how to get to the gym more, eat healthier, save more money, pay off debt, and so forth.
Hi friends! It’s already the middle of January and Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away. Can I say how much I enjoy Valentine’s Day? I’m a sucker for everything romantic. Sappy movies and sweet love stories. I love them all. One of the most exciting things about planning for Valentine’s Day is deciding what to do with your special someone.
Welcome to the new year! I have lots to share with you this year. I’m excited to get started by showing you my recent sales Poshmark and eBay. You might know by now that I’m a thrift shopping and reseller addict. It’s a fun and profitable side hustle that I pursue in my free time. After a slowdown in sales over last summer, which is typical for the season, I was happy to see my sales pick up in the fall. I ended the year with a great fourth quarter in sales!
Earlier this week I woke up from a dream that it was early 2019 and my blog was growing. I remember how happy I felt that I had a system in place for growth and was seeing my blog-related numbers rise all around. Honestly though, I’m not sure if I dreamed it or I imagined it to be true using the power of positive thinking. Whatever it was, I take it as inspiration and a positive premonition for the coming year.
The best shopping experience I know is when I walk into a store teeming with tons of great stuff on sale for low, low prices. I want to raise my arms and shout, “Yaaaay!” It’s a gold mine for a frugal shopper like me. This doesn’t happen often though. One of the rare times it does it during after-Christmas sales, when bargains pop up everywhere. It’s like Black Friday, but you don’t have to leave Thanksgiving dinner early for it.
With the new year coming just a few weeks away, you might be doing a year-end review of your finances and resolutions. My goals for next year are to make more money with my side hustles and to save more money for life’s expected and unexpected expenses. My goals probably sound a lot like those of a good majority of people out there. When it comes to saving money, a common piece of advice I hear is to cut out your unnecessary expenses. But what if you have an expensive hobby that you love?
2019 is on the horizon. There’s nothing like a new year to get people excited about change, challenges, and goals. One popular goal is to save more money. It can be really tough to save money. You have necessary expenses like housing and food and sometimes unexpected ones like medical care or a car problem. Or you might just enjoy spending money. Whatever your reasons for spending, you know it’s a good idea to save and you’re motivated to do it now.
Since I started reselling clothes and accessories a few years ago, it’s transformed from a hobby into a profitable side hustle. I love being able to make money from home doing something fun that I love. I know a lot of women who feel the same way. They’ve recently started selling online and are encouraged to become more successful at it. Other women I know want to start selling online but don’t know where to begin.
