Special Deals and Savings at Life in a House

Special Deals and Savings - Life in a House of Testosterone

Being a family of four, we know how hard it is to pinch pennies and find creative ways to save money and still enjoy the little “extras” that make life fun now and again.

14 Shopping Weeks till Christmas

Yes, I said it. If you’re family is on a budget, you know that planning for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, weddings, vacations, etc. takes planning and budgeting. You have 14 more weekly checks to divide up for holiday shopping, only 7 checks if your family is a bi-weekly paycheck family like ours.

Holy St. Christmas!

Don’t fret dear shoppers! We’re in the same boat, so over the next several weeks we are going to be sharing some awesome deals and savings with our readers. You can always find some great buys and gift ideas on our Pinterest Gift Guides that are available year-round!
