Welcome last minute Ultimate Blog Partiers! I’m Jen, the crazy voice
in your head behind Dear Mommy Brain. A few fun facts about me… I am an obsessive compulsive, slightly crunchy, real food loving, aspiring frugalista, wanna-be clean freak, struggling intellectual, guilt-ridden working mom fighting through the fog of mommy brain. Oh, and a procrastinator. Obviously.
Some things you will read about at Dear Mommy Brain…
Eating. But don’t be expecting anything particularly resembling a recipe. I do my best to provide a vague outline of what I’m doing, but honestly I don’t even know half the time. I’m a “that looks about right” kinda cook. And if something turns out well, I’ll share it with you. I’m also a meal planning nazi. As a working mom, it is absolutely necessary to meal plan for the sake of my sanity, but I don’t know why I didn’t do it before. It’s made my life like 432% easier.
Simple Savings. I LOVE saving money, but honestly, I’m over the drugstore game. It’s too much work and Walgreens has just broken my heart too many times. So I’m always looking for easy ways to satisfy my frugal addiction with readily available, environmentally conscious supplies. And I like to share these ideas… Because I’m no hoarder.
Tackling Debt. Follow me on my journey to clear over $11,000 worth of consumer debt in 12 months. It’s going to be a bloody battle.
Plus, as a bonus, you get to read about all my failed attempts at being a crafty, organized, put-together mom. **Guaranteed to make you feel better about your life.**
Why do I feel like I’m selling a Life Time Magazine subscription??
