Isn’t it so interesting to see what people spend their money on? One of my favorite places to shop is Sam’s Club. First, they have the little restaurant area where you can get a giant piece of pizza and a drink for, like, $2. You really can’t beat that kind of a deal. Plus, you […]
This is our basic “bare bones” budget showing how we live on less than $1500 a month. Like I said earlier, we usually make extra money each month. If we do, we decide how we want to spend or save it. I hope our budget might give you a little hope or inspiration if you’re trying to live on less.

My parents set a good example for me financially (for which I am incredibly grateful). I remember my mom pulling out a special black binder every month that had all of their ledger sheets in it where they would track their spending and bills. And of course, being organizationally obsessed, I was fascinated. I would […]
It’s cold. We have a high of 10 degrees coming up in our weather forecast. 10. At the “warmest” it will be 10 degrees. It’s nothing too newsworthy in Michigan, but it still is not my favorite thing to see in the weather forecast. Anyways, our furnace will be running a lot and we will […]
Do this one thing before you take down your Christmas decorations for a less stressful Christmas next year.
