Money May Be in my Future?!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

It is Wednesday again, meaning time to check in with....

Katie and I are all about saving (and making?!) some money this month! 

I have done pretty well this week. I didn't spend any money. J had me very tempted when he said he went to Jack's (a fast food place in Alabama) and got breakfast. It was so tempting to run into Bojangles and get a sausage biscuit, but I resisted. I came home and cooked some turkey bacon and an omelet. Possibly slightly healthier too.

This week I got in my Pharmacy Technician study book to take the PTCB (Pharmacy Tech license test). When I pass it (no negative thoughts), I should be able to get a job at the Kroger pharmacy through a family friend! Yay! There might actually be some money in my future!

I was lazy this week and didn't do any sort of looking at good meal tips, I did create a board on pinterest if that counts?! But I read this blog post by Blissful and Domestic about how her family lives on about $14,000
a year. They also paid for their house in cash. Woah! I talked with J and we would like to do that. Our yearly living expenses might be slightly higher because we would have extra bills such as car payments and housing expenses but I definitely think we could live on a $20,000 a year budget. Plus maybe by living within our means we could also pay for a house in cash?! How awesome would that be?

Anyway I thought I might share some of her tips..

  1. Wow. I cannot believe they lived on $14,000 a year. I've heard you can get good deals by paying for things for full in cash. I love the tips.

    NYC is so expensive but once my lease is up, I'm looking to live somewhere much cheaper. What a relief that will be.

  2. Wahoo!!! Good luck with the job! :)

  3. My husband and I are currently in major money saving mode, and those are all very good tips! In today's world, planning trips to save on gas, or even just choosing to stay home sometimes, can really save money!
