I had a history teacher in high school who was very entertaining. Occasionally, he would impart his “wisdom” on us, tell a joke, give life lessons, or talk about something totally unrelated. Whenever he did this, he would remind us afterward that what he just taught us was ‘Free of Charge.’ I am naming the newest section of my blog ‘Free of Charge,’ or the FOC, in honor of him. So thanks, Dad! Yep, that’s right. My dad was my history teacher for two years.
The point is that I sometimes I feel like I have more to share than just recipes, healthy living tips, and workouts. Sometimes I want to talk about how I do all this on a dime. How my husband and I save over 1/3 of our income, every month! How we do this while still traveling, going out to eat, and enjoying adventures together with our kids. I want to talk about the crazy ways you can earn money. Tips and tricks for having fun on the cheap. That is what the ‘Free of Charge’ area of this blog is going to be dedicated to.
The birth of this new section comes at the same time as the first birthday of my little blog. “It’s a lifestyle, not a diet” is turning one and with that birthday is coming my first ever paycheck! Yippee! Because I am officially making money off the blog I want to share with you how to do it!
