So Your On A Budget

So you want to save money?  I have a suggestion stop going out?  I know I don't spend money if I don't go anywhere, as boring as it is.  If you want to save money you can always make a monthly menu and that way you make a list of everything you need for the month.  I'm not saying you don't go get milk and eggs but you can cut down on random buys if you know what your going to eat every day and don't splurge.  It would probably be a good idea for those on a diet too.

So another way I make some spending cash is selling stuff  don't want on ebay.  I know a lot of people hit up thrift stores and get things but I usually go to auction sales and we end up with tons of extra stuff so that's what I list; old cameras, and other random stuff I don't want sell great.  You can always go to your local store and look for name brand stuff and sell that at a profit too.  I actually bought something for a dollar and think it will sell for about 150 on ebay.  It's an old commodore 64c still in the box.  Amazing right nothing like making some money.  Sadly this goes to my student loan or a plane ticket to my brothers wedding.  :-D

Saving Money Online

So whenever I shop online I look up coupons usually at www.retailmenot.com but there are other sites as well that give you coupons that give you a percentage off or free shipping and hey every little bit helps right?

Making Money From Home Mturk!

Want to make some money doing small jobs?  Check out www.Mturk.com you wont get rich doing it but it's just another thing you can do if your sitting home! You have to have 10 bucks to reach a payout otherwise you can use it when you order something from amazon. 

What's for Dinner?

I roasted a chicken meat for less then 1 a lb is awesome plus there's left overs!  I made an apple pie and gravy too all homemade stuff!  I admit those pie crust you can buy are much easier but since I'm not working I can save a few penny's by making my own!  If you can store a big bag of rice go for the bigger one it's almost always cheaper to buy in bulk!  I will use the bones for making some more soup!  If we don't at it now I freeze it! If you don't want to make soup right away boil the bones for some good broth and once it's cool pour it in a freezer bag!  Make sure the bag sits up till it freeze and just think instant chicken broth for soup, gravy or whatever!

So You Want to Save Money?

You want to save money on what food, clothes, accessory?  Well food is easy, clip coupons, buy less name brands!  Make meals at home!  Make soup once in awhile it's super easy and pretty cheap!  Grab chicken thighs you can get them for about 88 cents a pound or less!  Toss them in  pot boil them with water and toss in some veggies, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions are pretty cheap!  Or make chicken and biscuits!  It's cheap and tasty plus you'll have left overs!  Watch for sales on special things, like steak if you have to have it!  If you love meat like us then buy half or a 1/4 of a cow from a farmer!  In the end it will be much cheaper then getting your meat from the store!  Plan your meals out it takes some time but you'll end up less stressed and save some money instead of grabbing some already cooked chicken you know at home you've got a box of store brand mac and cheese for a 50 cents to a dollar and a package of hamburger.  It's like three bucks for dinner.  I realize that one box of mac and cheese feeds us but you will need more if you have a big family!  I'm not saying do that daily but one meal a week for 3 bucks will save you! 

Ok so you want a crock pot or some kitchen accessory?  Go to the thrift store I guarantee you'll save money there and what does it matter if it's used as long as it still works?  I'm not saying buy your underwear used but  you can find name brand clothes if that's what you want!  I've got most of my bread pans and cake pans used!  I wash them before using!  It's our fun time auction sales are even better usually for getting used appliances, I have even got stuff still in the box!  We usually get better bargains at the auction sales then thrift stores!

Making Money Online!

OK so here I am spending a little bit doing a few surveys and looking for some tutoring jobs!

People of Wal-Mart

This makes me laugh since part of the song is about people saving money!  Please do not watch if your not prepared to see some skin!  This is definitely a pg 13 show!

I Should Be Cleaning

Ok so I quit my job I wasn't happy there, the pay sucked and it was making me fatter!  That's my goal by the way to lose some weight before my wedding!  So anyways I'm a bridesmaid in my brothers wedding and I was going to wait to buy a dress so if I do lose weight it would fit better!  But today I got a call fro the bride telling me that they are discontinuing the dress!  So I just ordered it and it cost 172 dollars, yikes!  There goes most of my last pay check!  Well the dress and my student loan payment!  So now I really need to be doing as many surveys as I can and hoping people will sign up to make some money with the same surveys sites so we help each other out!  I just made another 5 dollar gift card through swagbucks I usually get the amazon gift card since I read a lot.  They have everything tho!  This is one of my new favorite sites http://www.instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/335129  they pay in the same day!
I keep telling myself I will get back to cleaning now at least get the dishes done anyways. :(  Then I'll look for a tutoring job maybe find something I can make a few more bucks a month on!
