How to Cozy up Your Home for the Fall Season

Fall time is here! Yes, it really is here! Not sure about everyone else, but this is my favorite time of year! Good food, warm feelings, cuddles on the couch, good movies, pumpkin everything, and the holidays on the horizon. Want to get the most out of fall this year? Here are 4 ways you can cozy up your home this season! 1. Decorate with new throw pillows! This is the perfect, most inexpensive way to make your home cozy this Fall season. As the weather gets cooler, you will start to enjoy more time indoors and these subtle changes will make you appreciate the season even more. 2. Buy fall scented candles. As humans, we enjoy all of our senses. But one sense that we can’t get enough of is smell. Filling your house with fall aromas is the best way to enjoy the season inside your home. 3. Bake a special treat. We all love good scents, that’s why it’s so great to light candles during this time. But another way to make your house smell amazing is to bake anything from sugar cookies to pumpkin pie. 4. Buy pumpkins. Pumpkins are a cheap fall decoration that are too good to pass up. But not only are pumpkins fun to decorate with, but they are also extremely fun to carve. It is hard not to enjoy fall and all of the beautiful things that come with it. Enjoy the season friends!...

Think of what you would order if you went out, and buy those items to eat at home when you are craving them.  It’s so much more expensive to eat out for every meal instead of meal prep and eat at your own house.  Seriously, ordering pizza and going to the Chinese restaurant adds up!  You can buy a pizza and bake it at your house much cheaper than ordering it.  (And that doesn’t even count the delivery fee!) Plan your meals for the week before you shop. Don’t just buy random foods.  You will almost always be missing a key ingredient when you go to cook something.  Sit down and plan out what you are going to eat, and what snacks you want for the week before shopping. Shop smart. When...
