Precious is in the House
This is the second chapter of Frugal Makes Cents. The original blog has been taken private for family only.
Starting today, I will be back posting but on a more limited basis. Many posts will be shorter and fewer than the old blog. I will post tips on things that I do during the day to save money and turn my pennies saved into dollars saved. Because DH and I have a huge goal that will take many thousands of dollars to achieve. So we need to hang onto every retirement penny that we have in order to reach that goal. It's either that or get a job to reach our dream. At our age, we really don't want to do that. So some days posts will be longer and others shorter. On days that I need the time to actually concentrate on saving the money, the posts will be shorter. After all I do not want to burn out like I did with the other blog. I have renewed my spirit over the summer and feel I am ready for this new challenge.
So my project this summer has been to really strengthen our savings skills, change the way we shop and do things, and work our penny saving skills into every money decision that we make. And before anyone asks, no I am not telling you what our goal is. At least not now!
So I will be posting everything and anything no matter how small or big it is. To give you a preview, I have changed the way we buy groceries and now have a system in place that really works for us. More on that sometime in the future.
Some tips will work for you and others not. Just pick and choose what you want and leave the rest. If I help just one person, this new blog will be worth it. And as on the old blog, please always feel free to comment or ask a question. I will do my best to answer them.
Off to write my first money saving tip.
