    Confessions of a Shopaholic on a Non-Shopaholic Budget

    Hi y’all, My name is Lindsey and I’m a shopaholic. Shocker? Not exactly. However, I definitely do not make the money or have the savings to be a shopaholic. Now it is time to start saving my money instead of spending it. As an adult, I definitely have some “major” purchases coming up in the future that I will need savings in order to afford without a struggle. We all just saw how bloggers posted left and right about the #nsale. I shopped it to. However, I will say over 3/4 of my purchases are going to be returned. I shop at Lilly Pulitzer, granted my shopping habits for there…

I also bought some stuff for flexible seating. What really took the longest was I ended up buying Airpods, and I struggled…

    Teacher Tuesday: 5 Must Haves for the Classroom

    Hi y’all, So, I’m starting my second year of teaching in August! I’m still teaching 5th grade which I’m excited about. As I’m starting to plan things out for the new school year, I thought about all the things I really needed and the things I didn’t need. The items I ended up not necessarily needing: 1. Expo markers in colors. I ended up basically having a chalkboard with special paint on it to make it dry-erase. Colors don’t show up on it! 2. Teacher planner. I’m so glad I did not buy a super expensive planner because I ended up planning using Google Docs. I had an assistant and…
