meet the sistas

Hey there! Thanks so much for dropping by. ๐Ÿ™‚


We are two goofy sisters who love life. (R-L, Pearl and Anna) Part of a ministry family of nine with little to no spending money, we have become somewhat professional at penny-pinching and dollar-stretching.

We’ve gotten good at having fun without a lot.

(like, what is a latte even?)

We aren’t your classic polished, perfect, lifestyle bloggers.ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜› )

And we know that as American teens, it can be hard to live with just a little.

(Especially staying alive and having fun in a state with record-breakingย 128 degree weather??!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

But it IS possible! We want to inspire you that yes, you can have much fun with close to no money.

Lifestyle posts, vlogs, DIY how-tos, frugal fun tips, budget style, and more– welcome to our “life without a latte”!

      1. Aww, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha, yes. The computer often tries to ‘correct’ my name, which is hilarious, especially the ‘great’ part. ๐Ÿ˜›
        So excited for you too!!
        I bet it has its challenges…I’m just trying to think of working with another person…I don’t have any sisters, so I would love to do that, but also could only imagine how annoying it might be sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜›
        So glad that you are enjoying my mess! It’s mixed up and crazy, but then, so is life. ๐Ÿ™‚

        So excited for it all!!

    1. Aw thanks so much, Leona! โค
      Basically, I searched a bunch of different random picture ideas that went with our theme on this free image site: (be careful and specific what images you search ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Then I played around with colors, fonts, styles, etc. on a free Canva account!
      So glad you like it, and let me know if you have any more questions. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hey Pearl! Thanks for liking a comment I made on another blog! Looks like you 2 have a great blog here, can’t imagine sharing the writing with someone, but come to think of it I share writing my blog with my cat Muffin ๐Ÿˆ and she sometimes gets more likes than I do. Sigh. Have a great day!

  6. 1. Which one of you is hogging the screen in your PerAnna prof. pic?? XD you naughty child!
    2. “chubby puppies” and “messenger bags”… wow, quite the profound writes.
    3. Are you related? Because, I dunno, you two are blogging on the same blog, you look similar, you have a joint account, you share siblings, you ARE siblings… hmm, probably not.

        1. Coolness! I love both kinds… ๐Ÿ˜‰ old classics like Treasure Island and Anne of Green Gables, but also newer stuff like The City of Ember and Princess Academy. Do you have a favorite genre to read?
