Back from the Beyond...

Hello fellow corporate chickees! So sorry for being M.I.A. yet again for such a long period of time! There have been some changes in my life, and while all positive, it takes time to adjust to change and refocus back on day-to-day life! No, I didn't win lottery. (I wish!)

So today's post will focus on one of the things that my husband and I are working on instead of the corporate world... our budget! We need to make some changes, save up some cash, tighten our belts! We're prepared for the basics - not eating out so much, spending less money on gifts an non-essentials, no more vacations, etc.

But I'm sure you guys have all been there before and have some great money-saving tips! I would love to clip coupons, but we don't get the newspaper anymore. (A victim of a previous budget cut.) What are ways you guys save money at the grocery store, or other areas? We're struggling with where to make some cuts because about 80% of our budget is fixed with mortgage, student loans, car payments, insurance, bills, etc. We can't cut back in those areas, so we need to get creative!

And one little note - I'm not exactly crafty... so making my clothes is out! :)


  1. You can actually get the same coupons that would get in the paper online now! Grocery stores post their coupons on their websites too.

  2. Nice! Not sure why I never thought to check that! Thanks for the tip!
