Cook for a day, Eat for a Month


I am trying new ways to save and one of ventures that I am going to tackle is OAMC also known as once a month cooking. I figured I will gather all of our favorite meals and whip up a menu containing some of the same foods to be used in something else. I am also clipping coupons to save while I gather my groceries for my challenge. Once I finish getting the items I will post them as I go along. I really am excited about this and see how much I save by doing so.

See A Penny...


What do you do if you are walking and see a pnny on the floor? Do you pick it up or just think to yourself "its just a penny..". Well I will pick it up and I will tell you why. You have 99 cents and with that penny you have a dollar. See where I am getting at? By doing this I started a shoe box in which my family and I threw pennies that we found anywhere and it started piling up. We now have $11.19! That is money that we did not have before and it is fun to count and see how much we have now.

Holidays and Food Shopping

I really love shopping around the holidays, because everything is on sale in my local grocery stores. Take this time to really stcok up on pasta, sauces and meats. If you are like me and have tons of room in your fridge/freezer, then start stocking up like me.
