Kick Starting Our Savings!

One of our goals for this new year is to get our spending under control-as a self employed family we need to be prepared for the feast and famine times. As a family we are cutting all extra spending for the month of January.

There will be no eating out or renting movies.

We will have a strict gas budget and we will stick to it!! We are going to fill our gas tank once unless my husband gets a ton of work this month.

I will use my ECB's at CVS for household needs such as trash bags, cat litter, and toilet paper.

There are several bloggers, Jennifer at Getting Ahead and Sara at Learning the Frugal Life
also holding spending freezes so you can get some more inspiration as well!!
