Our $2,500 Budget Wedding

Hubby and I have been married just over a year now… we got married on July 4, 2014.  We joked that we picked a holiday so neither of us could forget the anniversary… but seriously.  Also – how fun is it to have an extra day off work and fireworks every single anniversary?!

Bargain Hunting at Kohl’s {with Insider Secrets}

So, in case you've been living under a rock or haven't visited our blog before, my husband and I are purchasing and renovating our first home.

Our Fridge Deal!

Our Fridge Deal!

When we talked about shopping at Lowe's and Menards last week, I mentioned the incredible deal we got on a brand new fridge!  I can't wait any longer to share our fridge deal with you. My goal for appliances {fridge, microwave, stove & dishwasher} was to spend under $1000.  We're on a fairly tight budget for renovations and didn't want to blow a bunch on fancy appliances.  I knew thought we would be buying used appliances at that price point.  I was ELATED to find a new fridge and microwave in our budget!  {Just for…Read more …
