I have my parents to thank for this post! When I was in High School, ironing shirts was one of the paid jobs that I could do at home. Although it took some time, it was one of the few jobs I could do in front of the tv. I would pop in a movie, iron all of my Dad’s shirts, and get paid to do it!
Now, having a husband who wears dress shirts at least 6 out of 7 days a week, this skill comes in very handy. Take the time to learn how to iron a shirt correctly and you can save tons of money. You will save on the dry cleaning bill, and have an excuse to watch or rewatch your favorite shows on Netflix!

After organizing all the kid clothes and swapping out the winter for the summer clothes, I figured I might as well dive into the shoes as well. Storing shoes can be much more tricky than storing clothes.

I am a thrift store shopper through and through. Most of our clothes come from thrift stores, while the rest come from clearance racks or stellar sales.

A Banks dress shirt with the $87.00 tags STILL ON!!! I bought the shirt for $7.99. Woohoo!
