I have discovered Frugal Friday. This site dedicates Fridays to “Frugal Friday” posts and it has lots of links from it to ideas from all sorts of people with money saving ideas.
We stuck to our menu plan this week witha few exceptions- yesterday was had Subway and we had a few runs to the local store for “treats”. I’ve written down some of the things so I can get a better deal at Walmart when I add them to my grocery list. However, I’m pretty sure we still saved money. I can’t wait to see the difference after a month. I love saving money. Putting money into our savings account makes me very happy!
We did one other thing this week that is saving us money. We switched our car and homeowners insurance. We have the exact same amount of coverage, but we’ll be saving about $50/month.
And finally, our energy bills are much better this winter. Nathan and his dad did some duct work and also insulated a portion of the attic which wasn’t insulated before and it’s making a huge difference. This has been a cold winter and our bills are much less than last year.
