The Best Grocery Deals Starting October 11th, 2017
My love for makeup is never ending. As a matter of fact I just had a friend come over not that long ago who helped me organize an entire dresser drawer of nothing but cosmetics and it still doesn’t all fit! While I love my makeup, I do not usually buy high-end products. Don’t get me wrong, I love many higher end lines. I simply do not like the price tag that come along with them. So I tend to shop drugstores for my fetish of makeup. I thought I would share 5 Of My Favorite Cosmetics Sold At Wal-Mart to give you a look at some of the products I love that are affordable.
What To Buy After Christmas
After Christmas is my favorite time for shopping and finding great deals. A great way to get a head and spend less money each year is to shop after Christmas clearance. This allows you to get about half off the price and have items on hand for next year. Below is a list of What to Buy After Christmas. Most stores start clearance of Christmas items the day after Christmas.
Easy Fall Decorating Ideas
Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground, the craft fairs every weekend, the beautiful colors, the slightly cooler air, the pumpkins every where, the smell of wood burning in the bonfire, the delicious scents of pumpkin, apple and cinnamon in every store and every house, or maybe it just the all around great feeling it gives me.

Years ago, when I first met my husband and even after my second baby, I didn’t think a lot about saving money. In fact I simply went day by day. I decided what was for dinner and I bought what we needed to make that meal. Never thinking to look at the cost of what I was buying. I simply went off what I knew how to make. (which at that point was very limited) As I look back now and ask myself “What were you thinking?” I could have been saving so much money all those years. I want to share with you Five Steps To Trim The Fat Off Your Grocery Budget.
These steps are things I have learned over the years. Some I may have mentioned in other posts, some may be common cents and some of you may be like I was back then and never thought about it. If I am being completely honest, I never use to think about any of these things before we had to start cutting down our budget. If I had we may have never gotten into the debt we did.

So here is what I have learned over the past several years:
I am not always the Extreme Couponer. Actually, I slack a lot when it comes to coupons these days. Truthfully, I have gotten to where the majority of the coupons I use are for the things my family uses the most. So when there is sale combined with a coupon I like to stock up. I want to share with you the five things I always stock up on.

Five Things I Always Stock Up On
Is it worth buying in bulk?
There is not a “one answer fits all” on this subject. I shop stores such as Sam’s Club, Costco and BJ’S in hopes of saving more money like a lot of others. Buy more save more right? Not always. So is Buying in Bulk saving you money?
I have spend a lot of time comparing prices to find out if we are saving money by buying in bulk. The question is: Are you Saving Money?

While there are many products you can save money on when buying in bulk this isn’t always the case. You aren’t always getting a better price just because the packaging is bigger. There are some things you need to consider before buying in bulk.
We switched phone service over two years ago now and I couldn’t be happier! There are several reasons why we switched phone service. I want to share the benefits with you of shopping around for cell phone service. You do not need to pay hundreds of dollars a month to get good quality cell phone service. Here are some of the reasons we decided to switch to a pre-paid service.

Reasons Why We Switched Phone Service:
Reason 1: Price
The price we were paying for my husband, my teenage daughter and myself to all have cell phones through a big company was ridiculous. These companies have added in a monthly charge for your phone. So add $20 per month per line to your bill. Plus they now add a fee for having a smart phone. So add another $10 per month per line. Since we switched we now only pay $45 a month per line! We are Saving over $150 a month . That is $1,800 a year!
How I get 7 Meals For under $50
My family has had to discover and explore ways to save money on meals, like making 7 meals for under $50. Let me be the first to say, it isn’t easy feeding five people on a tight budget! However, this can be done. I have found several ways that have helped lower our grocery costs.
One of the ways I have found to help is by meal planing. I know there are tons of bloggers who talk about meal planning. There is a reason so many of us talk about it, that’s because it WORKS!
When I first started looking into how much money I spend on groceries each month I realized there is no way we could survive spending that much for meals. I had to seriously re-evaluate everything I was doing wrong. (which seemed like everything) That was when I came across meal planning. Game changer for sure! So I want to share with you a sample of how I use meal planning and as a result, I save hundreds of dollars every month on groceries.
