Save More, Spend Less...Let's Get Back To It!
I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! If you're like me and you use Sunday afternoon and Monday to prepare for the weekly shopping trips you are probably behind on cutting those coupons and making your shopping list. Well, there is no time like the present. Get those sales ads out and let's get started. Whatever you do, don't just run to the store for a "few" items because we always spend more than we should when we shop unprepared.
Don't let the hussle and bussle of this season cause you to forfeit your goal to save. Remember, this is a lifestyle, not a fad :). While I know there are grad parties, Father's Day, birthdays and the like to make purchases for and participate in, you must do so with wisdom. Plan ahead; make greeting cards for the upcoming events you are having. Use paper left over from previous projects such as scrapbooks or school projects or even recycle some of the fronts of the greeting cards you received in the past. I like to put the printed and written sentiments in my scrapbook, but you can't read the front and the back when you mount them so why not recycle them! This is a great way to save money and ultimately that is our goal.
Let me help you get back to it. Here are a few events you may want to attend:
