Hello All...It has been a while but I think I am going to give this another shot. However, with a change...
My goals for 2011 were to become healthier and to be more frugal! To date I have only accomplished one of my goals...to become healthier!
On January 8, 2011 I began HCG Platinum. This was a weightloss drug that helped me successfully lose 45 lbs and learn how to eat healthier!
So with that out of the way I think it is time to become more frugal.
Meal Plan Menu: I will write out the MONTHS meals on a printable calendar at the beggining of each month.
Grocery Shopping: I will only grocery shop TWO times a month! I will however pick up the essentials (milk, bread, etc) as we need them. I know I can get them cheap at the local gas station (weird but it is cheaper there then the store!)
Coupons: This past Sunday I purchased 2 papers (one for Des Moines and one for Cedar Falls/Waterloo) I was able to clip some really good coupons! I will try to use these as I can. I also get my coupons from redplum.com, smartsource.com, and coupons.com.
Websites: I have a few favorite websites and blogs I like to follow that give me ideas of how to use my coupons and which stores have deals on what (Blog: Living the Frugal Life. Website: Coupondivas.com)
I am hoping that with this plan I can save quite a bit of money.
I will use my blog to A) inform you of what deals I am finding B) to keep my self accountable!
If you have any suggestions please let me know!!!
