How To Get Free Stuff

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to free stuff. I spend extra money to get free shipping. I go out of my way to pick up things friends and neighbors are getting rid of for a future DIY project that usually never happens. And it’s basically a fact that free food just tastes better. That being said, I have all the apps. I’ve joined all.. Read More

How I Went From Zero to Cat Lady | Adopt Don’t Shop

I never had a pet growing up. At least not one that I actively had to take care of every single day. When I was very young, we had a puppy but when we moved out of my grandparent’s house, we left her there to keep my grandpa company. No matter how much we begged for a pet of our own, my mom never budged. We’d always threatened that as.. Read More

The Favorites: September 2018

When I started writing about my monthly favorites, I really didn’t take into account the fact that I was trying to not spend money. While I haven’t conquered the whole not spending thing┬ábecause #treatyoself, I have significantly cut back. That’s a lie. I just spend my money on things like food now. Which in my mind is worse because I don’t have a physical object to represent the money I.. Read More

Fall Book Bucket List

I found myself reading less than I used to and I wanted to change that during the summer. I created a summer book bucket list to tackle when I wasn’t working. If you want to see how I did with that list, check out my summer book check-in. One thing I mentioned in that post is that it was hard to complete the list because I didn’t currently own all..

Summer Book Bucket List Check-In

Reading has always been a way for me to wind down. I love getting lost in books. But since I quit my job, I found I had less time to read because I was always working. That’s one of the downsides to being a freelancer. In order to strike a better work/life balance, I vowed to get back into reading. Back in June, I posted a list of books I.. Read More

My Mom Kidnapped Me | Follow Me Around Video

It’s been a while since I’ve made a video. I just haven’t felt inspired. I think my lack of inspiration comes from the fact that I feel so limited by the persona I created. Which is insane to say because I am BratKnee and BratKnee is me. I recently got contacted by Firmoo.com to receive a free pair of glasses in exchange for a video. That made me sit down.. Read More

Alternative Ways to Make Money

Ever since I quit my job, I’ve been looking for ways to generate some passive income. While I never want to go back to working in an office, it would be nice to know that I was making money without trying for the months that my workload is lighter than I would like it to be. And while I haven’t solidified a passive revenue stream, I’ve found some ways to.. Read More

The Favorites: July 2018

It’s that time of the month to talk about my favorite things. July was a busy month for me. I was playing catch up from my trip to California in June while also planning a bachelorette party and bridal shower for my best friend getting married in October. In addition to that, I found myself working way more hours. Because I knew I had more money coming in this month,.. Read More

The Favorites: June 2018

July is here and that means it’s time to talk about my favorite things from the month of June. Having spent 10 days in California with my internet friends made it quite the chaotic month since I had to get so much work done before I left. While I’ve said I never want to go back to an office, it is very comforting to have built-in vacation time. But I.. Read More

How I Save Money

Since quitting my job, I’ve been working as a freelancer. That means my monthly income fluctuates month-to-month. Because of that instability, I’ve needed to save money now more than ever. However, when I quit my job, I wanted my overall life to improve. I wanted the freedom to do what I wanted when I wanted to do it. But living like that would stress me out. I’ve always been frugal..
