For fun, for inspiration, for YOU! Here’s why we started this blog, and what we hope to do with it!
3 Reasons We Started This Blog
1. To inspire you to live thriftily and have fun with what you have.
We buy 99% of our clothes at thrift stores… and still manage to look good enough. 😉
Our 15 passenger van’s AC broke a year ago… and is still broken. 116 degrees, ice packs, and cold slushies here we come! 😮
Ramen is only $0.18 a package. Don’t ask why we know. 😛 That times 9 people, is a (…unhealthy…) meal for $1.62!
Those are only a few stories. So yeah, we know that as American teens, it can be hard to live with just a little.
But hey, it IS possible! And we’ve done a pretty good job of having a blast in the meantime!
From backyard vacations to cardboard forts, from family movie theaters to glam sister salons, from self-publishing novels to sitting on the top of our van and watching city fireworks for 4th of July.
We want to inspire you that yes, you can have much fun with not much money.
2. To connect and chat with teens like us, like you!
We aren’t your classic polished, perfect, lifestyle bloggers. We’re just normal under-sized under-aged adults (aka teenagers) with acne, messy hair, and weird/awkward mannerisms. We are just like you! (no offense 😛 )
We started this blog for YOU. And we can’t wait to meet you cool people!
Hearing your stories.
Helping answer your questions.
Loving your ideas.
Interacting on live videos.
Enjoying your excitement over frugal hacks.
We can’t wait to start chatting in the comments with y’all and getting to know you!
3. To have fun. 😉
Because of both points above, this is going to be super fun! Nuff said.
We plan on posting at least once a week with occasional surprise posts in between! 😀
We have SO many ideas coming up…
Lifestyle posts, vlogs, DIY how-tos, frugal fun tips, budget style, and more!
Yo, guys…we have a brainstorm doc with over 150 posts to write. 😮
And that’s not all! If y’all like this blog very much we have some pretty exciting expansion/improvement plans ahead!!! Things like giveaways, blogger collaborations, livestream videos?!?! But sshhhh… no promises. 😛
Right now we’re working on polishing our YouTube channel (2 behind-the-scenes vlogs so far!! Our first one is about getting our profile pictures! ) and Pinterest account. Check them out! And subscribe/follow. 🙂
(um, and yes, for the second one we remembered to film it horizontally. 😛 #learning )
Feel free to look around, say “hi”, and make yourself at home! We don’t serve lattes here because they’re expensive and it’s SUMMER right now… but… *hands you a free virtual milkshake* lol
See ya around! Have fun living thriftily. 😀
