I’ve been sitting on this MicroHustle for a while, because my husband always says it is so good that I’m going to put this poor company out of business.  This store has given me COUNTLESS amounts of free items- we’re probably talking thousands of dollars worth, at this point, and I just don’t see how they can sustain having me as a customer. And if I’m going to put it under by myself, imagine what will happen if I send ALL the Salty Mamas out there to get in on the action? This store may not make it through the week! But I can’t keep holding out on you, so I’m finally ready to give away my secrets for the Kmart Shop Your Way Rewards program.

I know there are some fabulous mamas out there, but ladies, I am not naturally one of them. Sure, I used to spend big money on make-up back in the day. But those days are loooong gone, and I’ve spent years and years with a lackluster five minute makeup routine for moms– drug-store foundation, drug store eyeliner, drug store blush, and LOTS of drug-store mascara.

I just didn’t have the time, the energy or, frankly, the money to put towards my day to day look.

How a Little Bit of Drug Store Makeup Can Make a HUGE Difference! From thesaltymamas.com

And then my son spent five minutes as a model, and, as a result, so did I.  And I received two glorious makeovers in the process. I wasn’t the focus of the shoot, so my makeup was light, natural, and simple.

But I still felt like a million dollars, and decided I wouldn’t wait until the next photo shoot to find that oomph again, but that I would find it on my own (which, thank goodness, as there was no next shoot).

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Mama’s Beauty Bar, a Facebook group run by a kind, funny, and talented makeup guru by the name of Beth Griffin. Beth is the owner and operator of Chrysalis Beauty Co.

I watched her incredible Facebook live videos, learned some tips and tricks, and my style started to evolve.  And when I won a Lip Bon Bon of my own? I realized that this makeup really was worth every penny!

So I adjusted my makeup budget a little. I did some serious Google Searches, and some serious trial-and-erroring, and stepped up my game by finding the best drug-store make up for moms around (which helped me free up my budget for my favorite lip-gloss splurge from Younique).

So if you find yourself looking to up your mom makeup game, take heart. We’ve got the PERFECT five minute makeup routine for moms to get you looking fresh a little more frequently.

Does OhmConnect Really Work?

Live in California or Texas, and want to save BIG on your power bill? Find out how OhmConnect can help you pay your bills at TheSaltyMamas.com. #energysavings #energystar #ohmconnect #sidehustle #budget #oneincomebudget #sahm #stayathomemom #moneysavingtips #howtoreducebills #sidegig #cutspending

So you’re considering joining OhmConnect, but you’ve got a few questions first. Is OhmConnect a scam? Is it worth it? And maybe most importantly- how much money do you REALLY earn with OhmConnect? These two families have been using it for YEARS- and here’s what they have to say.

You might have seen those ads floating around Facebook by now. “This company will pay you $300 to unplug for an hour!” They’re talking about a program called OhmConnect, and those ads are (almost) right.

Over the last several years, we have been participating in a power savings program that helps us save energy, the environment, AND some cash in the process.

One year, we only paid one electric bill out of pocket. Our checks from this energy saving program handled the rest.

The OhmConnect program has made some changes over the last couple of years, but we’ve still got the best ways to make the most from this energy-savings program. If you’re asking yourself, “does OhmConnect really work?” and wondering it’s worth the effort- the answer is still yes, yes, and more yes.
