How wonderful that you are trying to do something new with your life. We were
forced into single family income status because of illness. Here is what I did
first. Assess your current bills.
Do you really need all the bells and
whistles the phone company has you signed up for? Check your long distance
bills and call your carrier to see if they have cheaper plans. Do the same
thing for your cable company and the your utilities.
Some times those
equalizer plans can be a god send if you live in a very hot climate or a very
cold one. Once you have your bills pared down to what you want, then you can
start on doing more make it yourself stuff and find less expensive ways to do
what you would like. If you take a good hard look at the budget101 website
you can find so many things that you can make yourself from simple easy to find
ingredients and you can stop buying bottled, boxes and overly processed foods.
Not only is it cheaper and easier, it’s also a lot healthier.
And I found a great bonus to making your own bread by hand….
great stress reduction therapy!
