Introducing September Savings

I’ve been thinking for a while about how I can revitalize my blog. With the current economy, we haven’t been going out for meals as much as we used to. In addition, I’ve been preparing inexpensive, pretty simple meals at home. As in, nothing to write about.

So this month, I’m going to try something new. Welcome to September Savings. This month, I’ll share a tried and true money-saving tip every day. These aren’t outlandish or crunchy, they’re all things we’ve implemented in our own home to keep costs down.

My first tip: evaluate your attitude and keep your goals in mind. Everyone is spending less this days and it doesn’t hurt one bit to shop at less expensive stores or implement saving strategies.

When you have a clear financial goal in mind, it’s easy to make little sacrifices elsewhere. We’re working on owning our house outright. What’s your goal? A nice trip? The wedding of your dreams? Paying for your kids’ college?

Michelangelo purportedly said, "The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it."

Your goals should be large and dreamy, and then you should create a plan to achieve it.
