How Can the Manda J Blog Help You?
My passion is to help other moms with the everyday! That’s why I’m sharing tips and tricks for easy recipes, kitchen tips, meal planning, parenting, cleaning and organizing, family travel, saving money, and frugal living.
They say money doesn’t buy happiness. And it doesn’t. But, it can sure make life easier.
How can you save money? How can you make extra money on the side? You can start by saving money on groceries with free downloadable apps.
Can you get things for free? (Hint: yes. See how I’ve won 5 free vacations!)
I love food. I would even consider myself a foodie. But let’s be honest, I can’t make or eat the gourmet food every single day. And my son is so picky, it would be a wasted effort. I want to bring you easy recipes, things the whole family will enjoy.
But for me, food is also an integral part of my health and fitness. I want to teach you how to meal plan!!!! How do you feed healthy food to your busy family on the go? How can you make healthy food accessible on the go?
I talk about how I lost 30 lbs and kept it off, and some simple breakfast swaps to help you on your way! I have a great FREE 4-week weight loss challenge to kick-start your weight loss – you can sign up below, and get some awesome tips and assignments to start your weight loss journey today!
I have a son. Boys are unpredictable, funny, and charming. You never know what is going to happen next! There is nothing more rewarding in the world!
Sometimes, though, parenting can be hard. If we are going to be transparent, and we are, it’s sometimes messy and ugly. We need to be honest with each other as moms, and help each other out!
Travel actually came later. It wasn’t something I originally planned to blog about, but our family had some big travel plans this summer. It just sort of evolved with the blog! I love discussing our travels, and tips for family travel!
I have a checklist (with a printable download available) for a weekend trip.
More About Manda J
I’m a working mom, who is lucky enough to be married to a wonderful man (who actually does the laundry) and the mom to one smart, hilarious 9-year-old boy! Besides spending quality time with my family, I work full time, manage my blog, and juggle all the other things to make my life full. I’m the queen of juggling things – I even managed to get my master’s degree when my son was 2 years old! (If you want to talk about some blood, sweat, and tears….. that was a HARD two years of work.)
I am on a journey for a work-life balance. I want to live a great life and do everything I love. I don’t want to have to sacrifice what makes me laugh and enjoy life for work or daily tasks.
I’ve spent so much time discussing all the things on my blog with my friends. Our favorite fast recipes, how can we save money, how can we pay off this or that credit card, what can we make for that school program without being a Pinterest fail…… We are juggling all the mom things, working, and still trying to maintain our identities!!
