Exciting things are happening here at Retired by 40! – and I’m so excited that you’ve chosen to be a part of them!
Earlier, I announced the theme for the year: Life Uncomplicated.
Frugal living is my passion, but so is making my home beautiful, fashion, traveling, parenting, cooking, inspiration and even organizing, and so I’ve changed the look and feel here to bring in even more content that I think you’re going to LOVE!
I am so excited to share even more of my life with you!
As part of these changes, I decided to introduce a monthly giveaway that consists of Inspirational T-shirts from my store, books that have helped me manage my finances, and even some home decor items designed by yours truly!
I hope that everything that you see here will inspire you to create the uncomplicated life that you want – and that these monthly giveaways will inspire you even further.

How To Enter Links Into Rafflecopter
Rafflecopter has some great integrations, But i’m giving you entries for more social shares than Rafflecopter has built in, so when you share a post, you’ll have to manually enter the link in order to receive a drawing entry.
Here’s how to do it:
To enter the URL from a Tweet simply click on the time of the tweet where the arrow is pointing.
That will display the individual tweet. Simply copy the www. address at the top of the page, and paste it into the Rafflecopter.
The same goes for Facebook. Just click the time next to the post, as shown below:
This will bring up the individual post, and you can copy the www. address at the top of the page, just like with a tweet.
For Pinterest, the proccess is also very simple. Click on the individual pin that you shared. This will bring the image up larger on your screen and then you can copy the www. address that comes up at the top of your browser.
See how easy that is?
