Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, pumpkin everything!
Pumpkin pie bites and pumpkin donut holes are just two ways we’re embracing the season of the pumpkin. And you can’t go wrong with warm and hearty fall casserole dishes (made in your slow cooker!) and tasty dumplings. Plus, I’m going to break down the true food cost of a cheeseburger and fries!

The best tips for fall shopping & saving
Did you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? It’s becoming easier and easier to support friends and family who have been affected by breast cancer, and we’ve found dozens of items to show off your pink pride — along with some Breast Cancer Awareness Month sales where retailers will donate part of your purchase to charities and research organizations.
Speaking of pink, I’m going to show you a few ways you can avoid the “pink tax” (the upcharge on items specifically marketed to women), and which items you should totally scoop up at the Dollar Store for a more than reasonable price!
Last but certainly not least, we’re doing the legwork to find some awesome plus-size workout clothing to keep you moving at the gym. You go, girl!
