10 Frugal Christmas Ideas – Have Christmas On The Cheap in 2022

As much as I love love love Christmas, if I’m not careful it can really take a toll on two things I try hard to protect. My health and my bank account. I always used to leave the Christmas season with a few extra pounds (and bad skin) and a few less dollars… and I know I’m not the only one.

10 Things I Quit Buying (to Save Money)

If you’ve read many finance books or blogs, you’ve probably heard that in most relationships, there is just one person who is largely in charge of the finances. It’s a generalization, but one that hits the nail on the head with my husband and me. We make all our major money decisions together – house, car, investments, insurance… anything that costs more than a couple hundred bucks really. But I, almost unilaterally, do all the spending.

The Best FREE Gifts to Give Your Kids This Christmas

I know it’s early… but I’m a planner. So Christmas is on my mind. And this year in particular I want to get Christmas gifts out of the way early. In December I’ll be doing the whole new baby thing, and I think leaving the house for shopping will be tricky at best.

Stop Wasting Food – and SAVE MONEY!

Before we can have an honest conversation about how to stop wasting food, we need to look at some statistics. Did you know that just one quarter of all wasted food could feed the 795 million undernourished people around the world who suffer from hunger (source)??

Bad money habits that keep you broke

Bad Money Habits You Need to Ditch NOW

This post has been sort of rattling around in my brain this week, just waiting to get out onto the screen…but posts have a hard time forming in my head until something inspires the concrete ideas and words that make up what I want to say.

6 habits to stay debt free

7 Habits to Get You Out of Debt

I’ve mentioned before that we are debt free. We decided early in our marriage that we would STAY debt free (not including a mortgage. Some day we will have a mortgage, if the timing is right.)
