Saving $$$$$$

As many of you know my weakness is saving money….I love to spend. I spend money I have, money I don’t have and money that I might end up having…makes no sense I know. It’s more than a weakness it’s a illness. My mom has the same problem. Well part of my news year resolution was to start spending money wisely, esp. with the economy! So to start off I have cut back on lunch at work, I now go home and eat sandwiches, leftovers, etc. I may go “out to eat” once a week and I try to keep it under 10.00$. I also have cut back on the stuff that we don’t need at the grocery store! Our fridge looks empty but it has all the stuff we need in it and that’s all that matters! I have also started buying generics, they aren’t that bad with a little additional seasonings. While scanning through blogs I found this one http://www.frugalcouponmom.com/ I have printed off a couple of coupons and will be buying this Sundays paper for more coupons. I am going to try it, I attempted this a couple of months ago but it seemed like to much work, but here lately with our grocery bill going up every week I am going to work harder at saving money. In what way do you save money at your house?

  1. I thought I wouldn't like clipping coupons but me and the girls at work have started a coupon club. I know it sounds dorky but it totally works, like if you have duplicates other people can use them and they share theirs as well. They may get different papers than you so it really gives you a broad span! Also, when we go shopping everyone comes back with an amount to tell the others how much they saved, like a little competitive thing? It's quirky but it has worked for me! Way to go!
