Hook, Line and Sinker {almost}

Hi Guys! So in my quest to cut back on spending I found a local dentist office that was running a $39 new patient cleaning, exam and x-rays. Being the dental wimp that I am I made my sweet husband go first. He came out alive with a clean bill of dental health. Next up […]

{Trimming Down Spending}

I’m totally obsessed with money. Saving it, making it, spending it. Last night I decided to look at where our money is going {again}. I love quicken for our personal finances and I love QuickBooks for the business. The best part is that you can just open up reports and see where you are at. […]

I thought “maybe it’s a British” thing? I first heard the term at No More Spending and I really like the idea. Being “mortgage neutral” is when you […]

A Lesson in Saving Money!

Hi Coupon Friends! I need you to use your imagination for this one… picture 4 acres {mostly on a hill side} covered in weed like growth from the rains a few months ago. It’s all dead now and a total fire hazard. Imagine my husband spraying it all down with weed killer a few months […]

Busy Weekend… Slow Sale Inserts, still good deals!

It was a crazy {busy} weekend. My husband and I decided we needed to get some stuff done around the house. We made a list and went down the line, circling what we needed to hire someone to do and what we could do ourselves. It was definitely a money saving thing, to figure out […]
