“You are only limited by yourself.“
No matter where we are in life, you can save money, in just depends on you. Put your creative skills to use and start thinking outside the box. If I wasn’t as frugal or as creative as I am, I wouldn’t be able to have spent the last 10 years or so home with my children.
I save money in numerous ways but below are a few continuous ways I save money:
*through grocery shopping- learning when & where to use coupons, using sales to my advantage, stockpiling for $5/wk etc.
*making my own things & repurposing items I already own
*using my skills such as photography to make side money
*combine ideas with a few friends like doing a potluck lunch or a craft night,
*repurposing items as many times as I can, just make sure its new purpose is actually useful
*just spending less & going shopping less
Like with anything, it’s really a learning process, not an overnight success. With your contentious efforts you will learn what works and what doesn’t & what actually saves you money and what doesn’t. Looking for inspiration, here’s a few places you can look:
*a walk or hike
*traveling & exploring local or far away locations
*Pinterest or Hometalk……..or other inspirational site
*events and/or craft shows
*books or magazines
Over the years, I have had my fair share of failures. Some were comical and other brought tears to my eyes, since my time and money got wasted. That is such a horrible feeling. Don’t get discouraged. Move on, access the situation, and figure out if it is something that works for you. Just learn from it and don’t repeat it. Otherwise, it’s not a mistake, it’s a habit.
Before I leave, here’s a few tips I’ve learned over the years:
*start by doing things you know how to do & expand
*learn from others
*never take on anything you can’t or won’t finish
