Ever had a stressful day, and at the end of all the crazy, all you want to do is get your shopping on? But you really shouldn’t be spending any money?? Pretty much the story of my life! I used to just fill my “cart” full of stuff, have a 20 minute debate with myself about why I shouldn’t spend any money and then quickly leave the site before I could hit purchase… But not any more! I’ve got a new budget-friendly addiction and it is Shopswell! Shopswell My New Budget-Friendly Shopping Addiction- BusyBeingJennifer.com Ok, so now you’re wondering what this new addiction is of which I speak… Shopswell is a community of friends shopping smarter together! It is an awesome site that has made it super fun to discover fabulous products you’ll want to share! You can make & share lists, track products you want to purchase and save on your favorite products. Shopswell shoppers share their favorite finds with lists—curated by theme. Follow shoppers who like the same things you do. You can even share your lists!

When you’re buying online, and you can’t touch/smell/feel what you’re purchasing, its important to know as much about what you’re paying for before you buy. On Shopswell you can read reviews, recommendations and watch videos shared and created by fellow shoppers. Shopswell will also track prices and alert you when that thing you want is at its lowest price and alert you that NOW is the time to buy!

Shopswell is basically Pinterest for shopping… Only its better! If you’ve ever clicked on a cool product while surfing around Pinterest, only to be disappointed when you’re not able to buy it or even find that product on the link that opens, you’ll be very happy to know that Shopswell only features products available for sale! And they will show you the current price. I’ve had fun creating a whole bunch of lists (…I told you this was my new budget-friendly addiction!)

The first one I created was around home decor and household items you need, and some times forget, for your first home. When I first moved out of my parents house, there were so many things I forgot… like a pizza cutter and dish towels and colander. Simple little things that you don’t even know you need! I’ve included a lot of those in this list, plus some fun items to help make your new place feel like home! I’ve also created a “want” list and added items to track! This list is full of the things I really, really want, but I refuse to pay full price for! With the Handy price tracker, I won’t have too!

If you love pinterest, you love shopping or you just love cool websites that make life easier, I highly recommend joining Shopswell! AND they have some really cool stuff going on right now… Like their Shop.Share.Win. Program! All you have to do is shop on Shopswell and curate your lists, then share those lists to earn! You can also invite people to join shopswell and earn that way as well. Cool right??

My husband is definitely approved of my new budget-friendly addiction to Shopswell, and I love finding awesome new things to add to my lists and price track for the future!

There is something about fall that makes me get all bake-y and home-y! I just want to decorate, bake, sew and clean! I’m gearing up for some diet changes and stocking my freezer with some healthier comfort food options and I started with these super yummy Cranberry Orange Muffins!

Preheat the oven to 400.

Combine all of your dry ingredients, set aside.

In a separate bowl combine egg, orange juice, and the orange peel and beat until mixed well.

Add the all of the dry ingredients at one time and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients.

Spoon batter into your muffin cups.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, let cool.

These muffins will freeze well for up to 3 months! I put 2 in individual ziploc bags and then put them inside of a large freezer bag. All I have to do when I am in the mood for one of these scrumptious cranberry orange muffins is grab a bag out of the freezer and let it thaw! So easy! And So delicious!
