Welcome! I decided to start this blog because my husband and I are working to become debt-free. Well, at least for the consumer debt that we have - credit cards, auto loans, etc.
My plan is for next year to be called "No Spend Year". This is where we will not spend on things that are not necessary. We will use the extra money to pay down our debt. I believe that my husband and I will give ourselves a small allowance to spend however we please. He likes to go out with his fire department friends once a week, and I do like my once a week lunch out since I pack most days.
In this blog, I will talk about our journey since I believe it will be a tough one. I like to shop. I like great deals. But on the other hand, I like to be frugal. I cut coupons. I sign up for free samples. I will share some of this on my blog, along with ways that I make extra money online. Not much extra money, but a few minutes here and there add up to a few extra dollars.
I will be sharing our journey here because I think it will hold myself more accountable. Plus I would like to share some of the things I've learned to save money or make the most of what you have.
I will be importing some of my former blog posts on my old blog here shortly. This will include some of my money saving tips.
