I meant to make this post Friday, but didn’t get around to it, sorry it’s a little late.
You know what I like about these kinds of posts? As I think of what things I’ll choose to share about, it reminds me that spending less money is not always something big and huge, but those little things we do day-in and day-out really do matter.
Cameron and I are opposites when it comes to money saving strategies. I thrive on the little things, like finding coins or cutting our meat with beans. But he’s the one who finds ways to save big, like living in a travel trailer, or spending lots of time researching cars before we buy one. But in the end both of our methods save. His saves big chunks of money every now and then, and my ways save just little bits, but it’s on a regular daily basis.
So if you’re feeling discouraged in your money saving goals, remember those little things you do, really can make a difference, and it’s really encouraging to write a few of them out, just as a reminder to yourself. And I love it when you share them here too, it makes my day and might give me some good ideas!
- This brown dress was in perfect condition other than a button loop needing to be reattached, so after a quick fix, it’s perfectly wearable.
- Speaking of sewing, Gracia got a hole in the seam of the other dress pictured above. She’s gotten her fair share of wear out of this dress, but I figured she could get just a little more use out of it, so I stitched it up.
- I got a Shutterfly book finished today, just in time to use the coupon code for a free book!! Woo-hoo! They usually cost about $30, but I just had to pay for shipping and taxes.
- We spent lots of time outdoors. The kids love playing outside with friends and what can I say… it’s FREE!
- Oh, and even though I’m usually the one saving money in little areas, I think I’m wearing off on Cameron. The other day I noticed he had watered down his almost empty bottle of soap.
