I like them! I am finding them everywhere! I really didn't know how much I could save. I joined Hot Coupon World and they rock! They give me a ton of coupon info!

Budget update.. I want to give up so bad. I am not sure what I can do to knock some frugal and budgeting sense into my DH.

Well on other news We got a new bank (our old one got sold) and this bank doesn't have the monthly fee and stuff like that and I can do everything online! I think that will help!

I got other job. I am helping my SIL with her homeschool and I can do my current job there too!

The bussiness you are trying to start is looking good. But they have DH working crazy hours! H works overnights!

And DD update! Her top 2 teeth are coming in!!! She isn't the happiest of campers now but I can't wait to see those teeth. They are both almost out!

Good thing we won't have to by stage 3 food. She is already getting table food!

And as long as she doesn't bite the boob that feeds her ( lol) we will be set!

Budgeting is getting better

February 17th, 2007 at 04:44 am

We kinda got a little budget going. It is not how I wanted it but it works little for us.

Now trying to get my DH to be frugal is what is not letting the budget work. I posted about it. Any ideas would be helpful. Now that I am having work issues we are going to be on one income for awhile so I have to be real frugal.

Other news..

**I turn 21 on Monday ( No saving money there lol) I love that my rents live with me free sitters!

**Hoping to get on a coupon train *fingers crossed*

**Plus we are looking into a few businesses to start (lol great way to save money right?) A couple is very low start up, one is no start up at all. Maybe if we had more money he would be more frugal? Who knows.

Also I got a 4 check for doing a survey and I put it in savings! Only 996 dollars to go.

Update with the budget.

So I talked to my DH. As I said before the way I was doing it wasn't working so we set it up differently. I write out all the bills and when they are due and then I write when we get paid and figure it out that way. I hope that will work out better.

In other news I insisted I start a price book, So I got the OK for that!! YAY!! That might lower my grocery bill even more (200 a month of a family of 4!)

Plus I am now taking all my survey checks and putting that in savings.

I also got a steal @ Wal-mart today. All Clearance was 3.00 so we got work shirts for Tim. We saved almost $100 dollars!! When I get up tommarow I will figure it up!! My first $20 Challenge entry!!

And thanks to everyone's help and advice!

New year New budget

January 1st, 2007 at 02:39 am

So me and DH have been talking about the budget and everything so we are going to sit down and rethink our budget and figure out were all our money is going!

Wish me luck! I didn't think making a budget would be so darn hard!
