    The Grim Reaper of Food

    a couple of weeks ago i decided to make a whole bunch of my own food and put it in tupperware containers. I only spent $60 on food that would last me 2 weeks. But actually it only lasted 4 days until it went bad and could'nt stand eating it. I got really frustrated and i don't...

    Software Helps A Lot!

    What would i have done without software? I use Boachsoft Finance 2012. It makes life so much easier. Creating budgets is so easy. Spending limit notifications keep me on track. I think you should try it.

    Financial Management Boot Camp

    I was always on welfare (for 3 different disabilities) and my husband has always been a blue-collar worker, but made pretty good money since he was living at him and such.  While I knew a little about budgeting, Hubby always had money given to him and he never had to worry about...

    Sometimes It's Exhausting

    living on a strict, tight budget is good.  But it's also tiring.  One thing I'm really tired of is not having money in my budget to buy new clothes with.  I haven't bought myself new clothes in a couple of years because I'm so broke.  Most days I'm pretty okay...

    Money Poor, But Otherwise Very Rich

    I love the challenge of being less than financially secure. I love finding bargains, living frugally, making every penny count. Sure, I would love to splurge sometimes, and once in a great while I do, but mostly, I can live just as well on nothing as most people can on 100 times...

    Anyone Grow Their Own Food To Save Money?

    I started trying to grow some of my own food, not much. I have a few tomato and pepper plants, and am going to plant some winter squash, but it helps a lot not to have to buy those few things.  I have fruit trees I planted years ago that are now bearing pretty well, so I...
