I saw this diy no sew Tote Bag craft video on Facebook and had to share with you. It’s so easy for you to do with the kids. Just get an old t-shirt and scissors. No sewing needed. You can make several to carry or for storage. Just use your imagination! This would also make a great side hustle for you or the kids 😉
Have you seen the news about bottled water lately? It’s kind of scary right? It was at the time I got the Vox Box PUR water filter system to review. I was literally at the grocery store that day and forgot to pick up bottled water. Then I remembered that I have a PUR system so I don’t need to buy water. The thought of saving money made my day.
I have the water filtering system and have used it for about three weeks. All I can say is WOW!! What a difference in taste, convenience, and amount of trash. I don’t have to have ice cold water anymore to cover up the taste of unfiltered water. It’s convenient because I just have to turn the faucet on and flip the switch on the filter. I don’t have a trash can full of water bottles so the waste has been greatly reduced.
As described in the video below, it was very easy to put the filter on my faucet. It basically snapped in place. That is such a relief because I honestly didn’t want to go through the drama.
Here is the video review. Leave a comment and let me know if you use a water filter or are buying bottled water. If you use something else to get delicious water while saving money let me know that too.
Don’t forget to like the video and subscribe to my channel. I’m going to try to do a better job of posting videos.

The thing about being a single mom is there is this sense of isolation and feeling that no one understands. I’ve had many days like this where if I could just talk to someone who understood I would feel so much better. That is why I am doing these calls. We need someone to talk to about the challenges we face everyday.
The call focused mostly on financial issues but it also covered how to get through life successfully. You can check out the RichSingleMomma Facebook Page to find out everything we talked about.
Here is a video clip I did early this week about the call.

One of the first single moms I found online who was successfully running a business is Kelly McCausey. She was doing things that I wanted to learn how to do. In short, she was my inspiration.
Kelly took time to chat with me about being a single mom and reinventing herself once her now grown son moved out. She shared her struggle with finances for quite a while after getting divorced and the amount of debt she was in.
If you are struggling financially, Kelly will be a source of inspiration and motivation to turn things around. She shares an amazing resource she used to get out of debt. Listen in to see what it is.
Kelly now is the host of SoloSmarts radio show and owns SoloSmarts.com. You can get her free guide on the site.
To contact Kelly pay attention to this information:
