When you’re on a tight budget, buying groceries is one of the very last things you want to do. And while you can work your way around a lot of the things on your monthly shopping list, there is unfortunately no way to get around the fact that you need to feed yourself and your family. While you may not think you’re spending a lot, your food bill could kill your budget in seconds if you’re not careful!
But, there are some simple sure fire ways to keep your food bill down and still eat like royalty (well not royalty, but king of your castle at least!)
Step 1: Shop with coupons
When you’re shopping for, or about to spend money on anything there is very probably a coupon SOMEWHERE that will help you cut down on your overall bill. If you’re shopping online, you’ll most likely find free shipping coupons for most stores. If you’re shopping in-store you could find percentage or dollar off coupons on specific products, departments or your whole bill. Either way, you’ll be amazed at how much you save! It’s also a good idea to use coupons on your other purchases not involving groceries, which leaves you with surplus – there are some pretty useful Target promos available now, so make sure to check them out.
These days, I’m almost finished with the redecorating of our Master Bedroom. (I can’t wait to show it to you!) And while I’m almost finished with that, it’s starting to dawn on me that I need to get to work in our Master BATHROOM design. Mercy. I know for sure that new light fixtures are needed. Although I’d love to change out the vanity and add glass doors to the shower…I think those things will have to come later. In fact, if I make a list of the DREAM Master Bathroom, I think LOTS of my ideas will have to come later! HA! (Along with some skip bins to put all the OLD and outdated junk into! Mercy – it’s gonna be a task!)
So when Tim from JVPartnersNow contacted me to see if I was interesting in learning about budgeting when it came to bathrooms…I was all about it! Let’s see what he can teach us today…

There are a couple reasons why remodeling your bathroom is a good idea. The first is obviously to make your family more comfortable. The second is that having an updated or better looking bathroom can make your home more appealing when it comes time to sell it. However, if you have a tight budget, you might think that a bathroom remodel is out of the question. After all, it would cost $10,000 to $20,000 to do, right?
That isn’t necessarily the case, especially if you or anyone you know has experience with construction and plumbing. If you can do the work yourselves, you will save tons of money. Of course, you can also save money by choosing your remodeling changes wisely. Here are 7 fantastic ideas to get you started.
Well, here we are again! I’m having a really hard time believing that today is New Year’s Eve. WOW. Where did the year go? And now we’re almost out of time!
Today we’re getting ready for a little New Year’s Eve party we’ll be hosting this evening, but I’m also thinking about planning out 2014.
What does that mean in my world?
