Saving money just got easier.
No more counting your pennies and adding up all the change in the change jar. Now you can make simple, easy changes to your everyday and start seeing more money add up in your bank account.
If you are someone who throws all your spare change into a change jar keep doing because it does add up. My husbands change jar the other day had over $200 in it, so it does add up.
Saving money and frugal living go hand in hand.
Frugal living is the simple act of living well on less. Living well within your means and being smart with your money. If you live frugally and cut back even on a few things you can save a large amount of money.
We took a really good look at where we were spending our money and cut back on some items we really didn’t need to buy every month. You can read here just how much we saved by living more frugally.

Household expenses can get crazy.
The larger the house, the more stuff, the more expenses. One of the best ways to save money is to stick with what you need. Clear up the clutter. Downsize if you can. Cut the cable and utilities you just don’t use and enjoy what you have.
As people we always want what others have. It is normal. But you are more likely to save money if you appreciate what you have and opt to live within your means.
