I slipped. I messed up. I didn’t make it all the way through the month. Although, I do have a perfectly good excuse. So, here is what happened. I needed to go to the store to get a few things. I wanted to go by myself (because seriously, the grocery store is the only peace I get some days), so I helped my husband lay our kids down for a nap before going to town....

Another Monday of our March Money Challenge, which means I have a guest post for you guys all about how one family saves money. Like I’ve said before, I love learning how other people manage their money. There are so many different tips and tricks, and not everything works for everyone. This post is written by Jessie of www.thenilaughed.com. She is super funny, but...

Once again, I am so glad that I started this challenge. My husband found a “reduction of force” card in his pay check yesterday. Basically it means that he was laid off.

It is really nice to not have that “I spent too much” guilty feeling at the end of the...

So, today was the first day of my cash only month, and I have already run into a few hitches. The first one actually happened yesterday when we found out that my husband won’t have work next week. Apparently they are waiting on some parts and have no work for them to do right now.. so all of my careful planning and budgeting got kinda messed up because 1/4 of our...

I think the most important thing when embarking on any challenge is to start off right. Writing down your plan and your goals will help you to have a more concrete way to know exactly what you want and what you have to do to get there. With this 30 day money challenge, it’s important to have a plan. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, as the saying goes. If you...
