That is why instead of focusing on myself today I was hoping instead of giving to me you guys can pull together and give to those in need.

Share your Family Recipes! *Cookbook Contest* Ends 4/31


It's no big secret that I am not made of money. But like most people I try to do the best I can with what I have. Last month while getting ready to go the grocery store I started to notice a disturbing trend!! By the third-fourth week of the month I ran out of money for food. This wasn't the first time this has happened but I am was determined for it to be my last. So I decided to create a budget! In order to set a budget I had to establish how much money I had available to spend on food. After completing my overall monthly budget using my envelope system I realize I had $200 for food!

       Divided by 4 weeks = $50

I know what you guys are thinking $50 a week for groceries that's impossible! But I have done some research and I think with the right grocery list ideas and some menu planning I think I might be able to pull it off. So far it has been going pretty well but I have been having trouble coming up with nutritious meal ideas for a bargain. 

That's where you guys come come in!!! I thought we would have a little contest!

February Income Report

Well the month of love is over and its time to move on to other things.I hope that by sharing with all of you my experiences I can inspire you to hopefully start earning and more importantly saving money yourselves. As a beginner myself I have learned that succeeding takes time, patience, and never giving up, and as a result most people who try will fail. ( I hope you do not become one of them!)

Important Things that Happened in February


Last month I was able to finally pay off remaining school bill! Within two weeks of paying it I was accepted as senior at The Evergreen State College. In fact I start school at the end of March. I am also using this time to apply to Masters in Teaching program this fall. Needless to say I am very busy girl . I feel that this is important because this means that the blog is going to change (again). As much as love blogging and sharing with all of you I will not be able to do as frequently as I have in the past. I will still be here and I will do my very best to share what I have learned and anything that comes across my mind that you might find useful. I hope you understand and will continue to support me in my quest to become a better person.
