... a penny saved is a penny earned. In my youth, I wasn't very good at saving money, because back then it didn't seem very important to me. I mean, what would I have saved my money for? My parents pretty much paid for everything, so it came down to, do I want to by that candy bar now? Or should I save up for the new video game coming out? Not a lot of motivation to save money there.
Now that I'm older, I have kids, I have bills, my husband and I are buying our first house, and now saving money is not only important, but 100% necessary! I'm a mature adult now (well most of the time), and my spending habits have improved greatly, but that's not because I wanted them to, it's because if they didn't I would still be living at my parents house! So while I have figured out how to save money like a responsible adult, I still think I could use a money saving attitude adjustment. ;)
So today's resolution from the list is: Saving Money. If you are having problems saving money because you like to shop too much, this is probably NOT the right blog to be reading. But, if you maybe got a little bit of extra money for Christmas (or Hanukkah, etc.) that you were told to spend on something for yourself, then go right ahead, and check out today's "money saving" finds!
Have a thrifty day! :D
