Apparently this is a go-to face for me on national game shows . (Swipe left for even more goodies ). This face is also to remind you that you only have a few hours left to take advantage of the biggest @thebudgetbootcamp sale of the season! (See back two posts). ALSO, this face is because tonight my oldest is getting “the talk” (yes THE talk ) tonight. I haven’t dreaded anything this much since having to answer the first question I got on @matchgameabc . PLEASE HELP!!! Books? Resources??? Advice?? He’s so sweet and innocent but I know it’s time so I just want it to be a positive experience. Any help you can give is so appreciated! Oh...but I need it by tonight so...thanks for laying it on me asap . #SendHelp#AndDontDelay#SaleEndsTONIGHT#LinkInBio@iamabfalecbaldwin (ps you can watch my episode on ABC.com or the ABC app. I’m the 2nd half of episode 3, season 3. The first have is Andy and Ramona.)
There are 800,000million things I should/could be doing right now. But I’m mostly sluggish, unmotivated, and tired so in case no one gave you permission today...it’s ok to leave it all and nap, even if just for 30 minutes. The world will survive while you plug in to recharge for two seconds. Mama J says it’s fine. Even if you have to turn on a movie to keep your kids occupied. You’re still a good person. And eat some chocolate while you’re at it. It misses you. #SolidLifePhilosophies
Ps these sheets are mildly flannel and are from @costco and are DREAMY. Super inexpensive (wish I could remember the cost ♀️) and So. Dang. Comfy. K gotta nap for a few. Ni night!
In other news... (Thanks for your support on my last post! #iAmRandom.) Wanted to pop on and remind you that tomorrow is the LAST DAY of the biggest @thebudgetbootcamp sale of the year!! It only goes on sale this big 2x per year, won’t go this low again until the Fall . So please don’t delay! FunCheapOrFree.com/BBC18 has all the details (link in profile) but here’s the cliff notes version:
• BudgetBootCamp.com is my super fun online budgeting program. Works at any stage of life, in most parts of the world! We have had less than 1% returns in the history of the program (thousands of active users currently) but IF by some small chance it doesn’t save you at least what you paid for it, we will refund every dime. Use the code JAN18 to get it for just $114 (reg $149!!!!!). Ends 1/19.
• #BBCConf is my annual budgeting, finance, and frugal living conference. This is our 7th annual conference (#FeelingOld) and this year it’s ALL ONLINE so you can watch from anywhere! It’s Sat January 20th from 12-4 MST. All you need is a screen and internet access. The conference is $50 (your spouse is FREE!) BUT - if you buy @thebudgetbootcamp this week before midnight tomorrow, you get a conference ticket for you + your spouse completely FREE!!!!!!!!
• Between the program + conference that’s a $199 value for only $114!!!! • Again, go to FunCheapOrFree.com/BBC18 to learn more, to register for the conference, and/or to snag Budget Boot Camp before it goes back to full-price on Saturday.
Whew that was a lot of sales pitching . If you want a good teaser of what’s included in the program head to Facebook and watch our last live Q&A. Tag a friend who needs this in their life, and leave any questions below. We will “see” you Saturday!!
Oh boy cats out of the bag! I was considering not telling anyone but the hundreds of comments and DM’s I’m getting tells me that ain’t gonna work . I was on @matchgameabc a few months ago and it aired tonight! It was one of the craziest things I’ve ever done. I had the best time!! Such a fun experience!!! I wasn’t broadcasting it to the universe mostly because the show is like the newlywed game, sometimes intended to make you blush...and boy, they do on my episode! So I didn’t want to offend anyone, but cats out of the bag ♀️. So watch at your own risk, get ready to laugh, and just know that I’m one of the worst contestants in the history of the universe but it somehow ends ok. Here’s to agreeing to things that end up being pretty crazy!!! ♀️. #YOLO#SorryGrandma#SeriouslySoFunThough (you should be able to watch it on the ABC website or app tomorrow! - season 3 episode 3. I’m the 2nd game in the episode so you can skip if you’d like!) #FCFonTV
Who wants some hot, fresh, easy peasy bread? ♀️As per your popular request, I made my Jordan-proof (aka fail-proof) bread yesterday. I documented my progress but I’m on the fence - would you rather have it in a post? Or a video? Or both? I’ve been gravitating a lot toward video lately because I love doing them but I want to make sure that I’m doing what works best for those who will be reading/watching (aka YOU!). Let me know below and I’ll get to it ASAP! We leave the country next week for our annual couples trip so I am in full-blown panic mode trying to get everything done before we leave. Any guesses as to where we are going??
**UPDATE: we are just leaving an event but are still planning to go live! We will do it as soon as we can, most likely 9:45ish. Sorry Freebs!
Do you have tickets...to the GUN SHOW ?? #imSoFunny. It’s TUESDAY, so have no fear, no tickets are needed to watch our #QandATuesday live broadcast tonight! (See that seamless Segway? #skillz.) Even Though we did a bonus Q&A video on Sunday, we are going to wow and amaze the universe (snort) as per usual TONIGHT! @bubbapage and I will sit down to answer your most pressing finance, frugal living, budgeting, and whatever other lifestyle questions are burning in your innards. The good burn, though. Leave all your questions below and we will be back tonight around 10pm MST to go LIVE and answer them! “See” you then #FCFliveQandA#BubbaAndJordy
They’re heeeeeeeeeeere!!!!!! #MostWonderfulTimeOfTheYear. If you have Cadbury Mini Eggs at a store near you, let us know where so us Freebs can hoard them ALL (especially if they are a good deal ). They freeze great, so stick extra bags in your freezer to ration the rest of the year so as to avoid withdrawals. Anyone else share my deep, unbending love for these babies? #SendAnIntervention#CadburyOholic (this was at Walmart for $2.98/bag, BTW!)
This handsome guy and I want to thank you all for your love and support on our live Q&A last night. I’m not going to lie, that was - to date - the most nervous I’ve ever been as an “influencer”, including going on national TV . To share about something so deeply personal to us on such a public platform is scary. But we are so appreciative of the love and respect we were shown. I will try to get the video up on YouTube quickly, and will change this caption when I do. In the meantime you can watch it in my profile for 24 hours.
Today being Martin Luther King Jr day, i’m grateful to live in a time where differences are being celebrated and tolerated more and more. We still have a long way to go, but I have hope for humanity and know that if we continue to lead with tolerance and love, we will all be just fine . Go have fun with your families today, Freebs! #BubbaAndJordy (ps how amazing is Bubba? And such a babe. Had to throw that out there . #OneLuckyGal)
Today’s (messy, off-kilter, ragamuffin...) #PageSundaySelfie is to let you all know that TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT! For months now many of you have asked for a live Q&A about our religion, what believe, and why. Lucky for you we have an open night to night so we are making it happen! If you’d like to know more about our religion - Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS or “Mormon” for short) - or if you just want to know about how we are raising our kids/managing things as a Christian family, we are happy to answer your questions! This is NOT a broadcast to try to convert you to our religion by any stretch of the imagination. We have very open minds and hearts, and welcome all beliefs and religions and always say “to each his own”. We have just found found that as we openly mention our religion and beliefs in past #FCFliveQandA’s, many of you have had questions and have wanted to see more pieces of the puzzle, so we are happy to take the time to answer whatever questions you have. So please leave any and all religion/belief/spiritual questions below then come back (right here!) around 8:30pm MST and we will answer them live. “See” you then! #PageHousehold (oh and check our Mormon.org for quick answers in the meantime!) #imAMormon
Random cleaning tip for you! Taking a second to add “clean touches” to a room gives the illusion that your house is much cleaner than it is! Sprinkle Comet in a toilet and leave it there after scrubbing, fold the last square of toilet paper into a triangle (on the roll), spray some air freshener or even some windex or cleaning spray into the air, plug an air freshener into the outlet closest to your front door, and dampening a rag and doing this stripey trick instantly makes your couch look vacuumed, and makes your house feel immaculate and professionally cleaned. Weird, but it works ♀️. So next time you have company over, try a few of these and they will be WOWED by your cleanliness. (I just don’t let them open any closet doors...). Do you have any “cleaning” hacks like this?
Guess who’s walking around like a fool, taking selfie videos of herself at the store? ♀️I’m doing some quick shopping and decided to film a bit to put a Shopping Tips video together for YouTube. While I’m here, what do you want me to show you? (Other than my #SideshowBobHair which is strong today...)
Speaking of chicken...(See my IG stories...) Psssst! I have something for you! It just so happens to be a chicken dish so easy, and so delicious...it’s actually called Delicious Chicken . You only need like, 5 ingredients (the secret sauce being graham crackers!!) and BAM. Dinner your family is going to freak out over. Put it on your menu and run to FunCheapOrFree.com/delicious for the recipe! Also, my strawberry spinach salad with EASY homemade dressing is #ontheblog too, just search “spinach salad” and it will pop up. I’m no @rachaelray but I’d bet my left leg you’re going to love this. Not my right one, though. That’s my dancin’ leg ♀️. This is an oldie of mine, has anyone ever made this before?? #FCFEats#GimmieAllTheChicken
(4th try is a charm!) To show our excitement about everyone who is freaking out over our upcoming conference and current @thebudgetbootcamp sale going on (See last post!)...here’s a compilation of some #PageDanceParty action as a THANK YOU. You’re welcome. Or I’m sorry. Either way...#WeAreNuts♀️. #PageHousehold (sorry about the music quality, won’t let me post it any other way! ♀️)

I am all finished up at the studio and I have some time to kill at the airport so I will do a spontaneous Q&A on my Instagram stories and in the comments. Leave your questions below, they don’t have to be finance or frugal living questions (since we covered so many last night for Q and A Tuesday) and I will get settled and start answering them! (... just ignore the caked-on studio make up, mmmkay? )
Thank you for your opinion on my last post!!! I’ll tell you when the episode airs so you can see which ones I chose (...though I’m sure you can guess by reading the comments ). Also, this is random but I have some time to kill at the JFK airport and want to sit my fanny down and stuff my face with some good food. Any suggestions? Lastly, only ONE more day until our biggest @thebudgetbootcamp sale of the year, AND tickets to this year’s #BBCconf go on sale for $35 off!!! So come back here at 10am MST (9 PST) for all the details and info, and set your alarms so you can snag ‘em before they’re gone. Ok, that is all .
Freebs! I need your honest opinion! Sorry it’s not the best lighting but squint your eyes and work with me here. I’m headed over to the studio to film my @rachaelrayshow segment. This top, though from @rossdressforless (for like $10 ) is on the fancy side because of the sparkly collar. I opted for these leopard boots ($10 from @centsofstyle warehouse sale) to make it a bit more casual but now I’m wondering if the nude pumps I brought might look better? I don’t have a picture because I had to run. But will you tell me if you think I can pull off the leopard boots with this top ( ) or let me know if you think nude heeled pumps would be better()? #FirstWorldProblems ♀️#FreebsFrugalFashion#FCFonTV
2 more days until the biggest @thebudgetbootcamp sale of the year, and tickets to #BBCconf go on sale! (Go back 2 posts to catch up.) also, I’m at the airport headed back to the @rachaelrayshow today! Woo hoo! So I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do our live #QandATuesday tonight but I’m going to try! I might even be able to get @bubbapage on the broadcast too! So keep an eye on my feed and IG stories for updates. In the meantime, leave all your best finance, frugal living, and lifestyle questions below and I will do my best to answer them tonight, or will answer them in a video or on IG stories if all else fails. Moral of the story...we’re playing today by ear ♀️. #Life
It’s case lot time!!! #ad this is officially the first time I’ve ever typed that! Why? I don’t do sponsorships, like, ever. But - it’s case lot time and you NEED to know about them! I shared some tips in my IG stories about case lot sales on Saturday (I’ll add to my highlights) so when @mysmithsgrocery approached me about doing a post on my feed I was like #duh ♀️. A Case Lot sale is when a store sells items in bulk, at a discount, and you buy it by the case for a great deal. @mysmithsgrocery has a big case lot sale going on Jan 3-16. I flew over on Saturday and stocked up on a few key items that I felt were the best deals, that my family consumed regularly: Kroger Apple juice, Kroger peanut butter (Swipe left, my kids eat PB at least 1x per day ), apple sauce, pasta sauce, pancake mix, and Rotel tomatoes for my famous salsa (#OnTheBlog). Use as much of your grocery budget as you can spare to get that pantry stocked up! This is how #ShelfCooking works; you buy what’s on sale, keep a stockpile in your fridge, freezer, and pantry, and when you need it you then have your own stockpile rather than paying full-price every time you need it. Just be careful and do the math! I try to focus on deals that are 15-20% or better than regular price. If pasta sauce is $1 normally, look for $.80-$.90 for it to be worth buying a case. The PB ends up being $1 per jar!!!!!!! That alone is worth the trip. The apple juice ends up being $1 too! So if you’re in Utah run to Smiths, and for the rest of you, keep your eye on the ads at your local store and stock up on those Case Lot sales when they pop up! Anyone else have case lot sales near them? #SmithsFoodie#ShelfCooking
