Money saving tips!
Kelly is hosting Show us your Life- Money saving tips. I don't have many ideas, but I'll tell you what works for us.
Aaron and I have been doing the Dave Ramsey method where we only use cash. We set up a budget and organize the money every two weeks. This really has worked, but it is easy to get off track. We have been off track since Christmas.
Using cash really makes you think about what you are buying and if it is really worth it. This is good for me because I can be quick to spend money and not give it a second look.
I am not a coupon clipper, I have no time as it is. Maybe one day when I have a little more time, this will happen one day right?
One thing we save a lot on is daipers. We love Target diapers and wipes and we save so much from it. A box of Target diapers are about 14.00, and that beats 20.00 any day. Plus every once and a while they put a coupon in the box, that is always great.
I am looking forward to getting some great tips and maybe some green tips too!
