Financially Fit

Is it possible to be truly financially fit? This isn’t a question I’m posing to the rest of the world. Only to those of you who, like me, have a hard time trimming that budget or even keeping to one.

I’m the type that makes a budget, keeps receipts vowing to put them in said budget spreadsheet, never does, and ends up with a wallet that won’t close and a budget that never seems to work.

What ways can we get financially fit? Of course cutting useless purchases helps. And finding ways to reduce wasted expenditures. What I mean by this is groceries you throw out because you bought too much and you let it rot.

It is my quest to be financially fit and thus, I’ll explore, experiment and extract information along the way. Outcome to be determined at a later date.

  1. lol. also are you getting points? PC mastercard? Optimum Card? Points on your banking card? That is a great way to get money back. We buy gas and get refunds that we spend at the grocery store 🙂

  2. thanks so much Jeannie:) i haven’t used coupons before but you’re right it’s an awesome way to try and save some money. i am starting to bottle soups and other stuff that i can to keep for other times… and do have some things in the freezer.. .but i love you’re ideas and will totally try the casserole exchange:) … i used to do the pot of soup for a full week but alas davis isn’t into the same meal two days in a row. the new challenges being a mom. thanks for the links:) can’t wait to explore them.

  3. excellent publish, very informative. I ponder why the opposite specialists of this sector do not notice this. You must proceed your writing. I am sure, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

  4. Most importantly, you’re doing a great job with your little girl 🙂 … stuff the budget! – you know what you really can spend and avoid the temptations of “stuff”. Money has a way to come to you when you need it most. This has been my saying for many years. Sure you have to think of clever ways to get it – selling something on eBay for example, coupons, not go to the shops! :). Lately things are much tougher for me too. You don’t need to cook “gourmet” foods. I cooked corn on the cob for us yesterday. They were 75c each, made 3 fresh cobs. Little Miss M helped me clean them, we steamed them and made a feast out of it… butter and all from ear to ear. It was filling, nourishing and healthy too. I will be posting something about quick, easy and cheap foods soon.

  5. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested. Regards!
