The Start of My "Business"

Starting a Business:  Well, I should be honest. I have technically been in business for about 3 years. I hate to say that because I feel like we don't have much to show for the 3 years we have put in except for a whole lot of debt, old equipment, and aggravation, but some would say we have learned a lot and have come a long way. Before I start to write a daily synopsis on what it's like to run a business, I will at least give you some background on the last 3 years. I will try to be brief.

Market Like a Mother: Share Your App Marketing Ideas

Hello!   I'm so excited that my app Sleeping With the Laundry: Notes from the Mommy Track is out on the apple store. But with over 185,000 apps out there, sales are slow. So what's a mom to do. Do you all have any marketing ideas. I'm going to make postcards for the next big mom conference and hand them out. Car sign is another idea.    Do you all have any additional ideas.   Best, MoxieMom

Parenting Decisions, Feminism and the Stay-at-Home Mom

Extreme Couponers Share Frugal Living Tips

It's official - I'm not just experimenting with extreme couponing, I am an extreme couponer. I know this because my cabinets and freezer are still full of food and also because last week's grocery shopping trips were incredibly small ones. Last week at the commissary, I spent $7.29. We bought two dozen eggs, each marked down to .49 with a .55 coupon off of two dozen. We bought a bag of shredded lettuce for $1, a bunch of bananas, a half gallon of milk, and a loaf of cheese bread. As I type that, I can hardly believe it - I've never spent less than $30 on a commissary visit for a family of six. ...more

But what life is fun without the room for occasional splurges? (Although you could say that I have already splurged enough.) In fact, it appears that 2011 might become the Year of the Splurge after most Americans spent the 2008, 2009, and 2010 on a limited budgets and shopping bans.  ...more
