Frugal Living

I am SO tired of the weather around here in Texas. Its cold, grey, damp and depressing! BUT it sure has kept me in the house and saving money. HA!

I feel so fullfilled now that we have decided to take control of our lives.  My husband and I are grabbing our finances by the reigns and never letting go again.  I just wish we would have decided this 9 years ago when we started our business. But, I know God has his plan for us and we just needed to make those mistakes to learn and grow.

Things that have changed:
*I have lost 7 lbs now in less than two weeks. Why? not eating out anymore changes you.
*In just two weeks I have fully stocked our freezers w easy meals for those 
"I don't feel like cooking"
nights. That way we can easily pop something "healthy" in the oven or microwave and add a salad or fruit.  
*We have already found $100 a month between two bills that we can save. Not finished going through and calling all our bills to try and save more.
*found a discount grocery store to start purchasing many of my staples.

This is Me, Then.   


  1. Good for you with the money saving! All the little things add up. Something as simple as roasting two chickens at once and then shredding the leftovers and freezing them for casseroles saves money. I just started baking my own bread and pizza crust to save some more. It's healthier, too. Keep up the good work and keep posting your money saving ideas - I love reading about how people save money!

  2. I can't wait to go back to Joe V's!!


I love comments!
