10 Money Saving Apps

When I first began my entrepreneurial journey things we slow. I became obsessed with researching apps and odd ways to save money. I did everything from taking surveys for 25 cents to watching commercials for a penny! I probably tried out a million apps around that time as well.

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with television. I even convinced my neighbors that I had a brother named “Robbie” (like the brother in the 90s classic “Dinosaurs“), who was away in the military, and that they shouldn’t bring him up to my mom because it made her sad.

Exploring Utah

 During a recent trip to Utah I had the chance to explore Big Cottonwood, Salt Lake City, Park City, and so much more! We were there on Pioneer Day for the Days of 47 Celebration. Pioneer Day is when the Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake Valley on July 24th, 1847 (which I think is why they call it days of '47) after many had tried, failed, and died in the previous attempts.
