Saving money is just plain smart, but you also need to save it with purpose, usefulness and saving your own sanity to boot!

Clipping Coupons without Clipping! How is it that everyone is fixated on clipping coupons? Clipping coupons is something I do, but with Fred Meyers, you can do more than just clip coupons. You can sit in bed at night watching TV, and with your phone […]

Saving my body…

Saving my body…

Saving my body by losing some weight…
From July of last year up until April 15th of this year, I gained 25 pounds. I had a weight issue before, and after my fat jeans got too tight to fit into anymore, I knew it was time to go back to a very strict diet! When have you heard that one before? lol Granted, this isn’t for everyone, and I would strongly urge you to see your doctor when you feel you need to make a lifestyle change, and especially when it comes to your health!
I can only speak for myself, and talk about what I personally did to shed 22 pounds out of that 25 pounds I gained during that 7 month period.
Like I said… everyone is different, and we all react to foods differently too. My go to meals include organic oatmeal with a half a glass of cranberry juice for breakfast, soup, a few small slices of cheese with water for lunch ( low sodium soup ), and dinner I have a half a bag of frozen vegetables, cottage cheese, and apple sauce with water. ( Veggies I use a small pinch of salt, and pepper – No butter… ) If I have a snack I’ll have some fruit or, I’ll grab a yogurt where I’ll toss in more fruit such as strawberries.
I stay away from meat, bread, soda, wine, and coffee. ( I miss my mocha’s! )
Like in the movie, Mean Girls… I need to lose 3 more pounds! lol ( No Swedish nutrition bars for me… )
Losing the weight where I feel healthier saves me from being over-tired, and I just feel better about myself. Losing 22 pounds in a 2 month period is super difficult, but having a doctor is beneficial. She’s also my cheerleader if you will…
Do I weight myself daily?
Yep… However, there will be a time in the next month when I do hit my goal where I’ll visit that Moroccan or, that East African food truck after a relaxing day of shopping at Saturday market. It’s just a matter of maintaining my weight where I can still splurge at times without having the guilt hanging over my head because of my weight.
Saving ourselves is super important! It’s a savings you can’t even put a price on…

Yesterday I was at Home Depot picking up another can of paint for a bedroom. Before I ask the associate to mix up the can of paint I asked her if Home Depot was going to have another paint sale soon. She said, yes! The […]

Look twice, and save!

Look twice, and save!

Less than a year ago I purchased a new home. I’ve been going hog wild trying to make this house a home if you know what I mean… A few weeks ago I purchased a patio set online that was on sale at Home Depot. The patio set was on back order, and it was to ship in about a weeks’ time. A week passed, and I haven’t heard a word about what’s going on.
I logged into my account to see if there was a change in the delivery date, and sure enough, the date for arrival has changed. I then went to take a quick look at the patio set online, and to my surprise, the patio set was marked down lower yet!
I called Home Depot, and asked them if they would honor that sale price since I already had made the purchase. Without question, Vincent from Home Depot was going to give me the new sale price! That just saved me another $55!
10 minutes on the phone with Home Depot saved me that $55.00. Looking twice at times can save you some money, and best of all… I didn’t have to clip a coupon either!

Taking time to love ourselves…

Taking time to love ourselves…

With what life throws at us on a daily basis, do we ever take enough time to love ourselves? Work, home, family, kids etc… can cause us to lose touch with ourselves!
Why is this post so important in my opinion?
Before we can get into saving money wisely, we need to give ourselves a hug.
This blog isn’t just about saving money. It’s about saving our sanity too! That’ a HUGE savings!
Before we continue, let’s grab that cup of love, and relax.
Loving ourselves is something we just don’t do enough of…
