5 Ways We've Saved Money This Week Series
Looking for lots of creative money saving tips? Look no further! Here are links to posts in my “5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week” series.
For weeks I’ve told you about the money saving book in the works. If you look forward to this series each week, I think this book will be perfect for you. It’s called 500 Ways to Save Money: Build a Cash Jackpot for the Best Things In Life. You can learn more about it here.
(But I’ll give you a hint…you really want to become a subscriber to Medium Sized Family weekly newsletter. In fact, I’d join before Tuesday.) 😉
Crafting and decor are not really my thing, but I do love a beautiful Christmas display. So I’ve been using Pinterest as my inspiration and fashioning some new ideas using things we have around the house to create a different display this year. I’ve been sharing my ideas on Instagram, so follow along if you like saving money on decor.
We’re also trying not to get carried away by spending on gifts. This time of year, the “might as well buy one more” attitude sneaks up on the best of us! That’s why I try to keep a written plan so we buy only the things we know will be loved.
Things have been quiet around the blog lately, because I’ve been working hard on my book. The good news is that it’s getting close! I’ve pulled together more than 500 ways to save money without the repetitive “stop drinking lattes every day” and “cut the cable” advice you read everywhere. I’m excited to release it soon, and I hope you’re excited, too!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on a title for this book. Leave your ideas in the comments below.
Last week was an exciting milestone. With week number 100 of the 5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week series on the books (er, blog), that means there are 500 money saving tips in that series alone! It’s fun to know that our family is still finding creative ways to save money. Even better is that we get to share them with you.
In case you missed it, there’s some exciting news that comes along with this milestone! I’m compiling all of these tips into one easy to read e-book. I’ll be rolling out more details soon, but you’ll definitely want to be one of my subscribers when the book launches. (Hint, hint!) You can do that here.
Two years ago, I decided to start celebrating the ways our family saved money each week. Not only did this give my Hubby and me the motivation to keep working hard to pay off debt, but we hoped that sharing our money saving ideas would inspire our readers to save more, too.
The first few weeks, I wondered if I could really write about these things week after week without becoming boring and repetitive. But over time, I realized that with the changing of the seasons, the years, and the way we do things, there’s always another way you can save money.
Based on the number of people who have read these posts, I’d say you feel the same way. You want to save money for the things that mean the most to your own family. It’s so nice to have a whole community of savers in one place!
