I haven’t discussed this in the blog yet but our family follows a vegan diet.  We have been for about 2 years now. We started off as vegetarians 3 years ago and gradually eliminated all animal products from our diet.  D and I have different reasons for going this route.  Today I’d like to introduce […] The post Introducing the Vegan Budget Cooking Series appeared first on Saving for a Living. ...

Inspired by Mr. Money Mustache over the years, our family has incorporated biking as a big part of our lives.  We try to bike as much as we can.   The benefits are huge.  Not only do we get free exercise and enjoy the outdoors, we also save on the cost of driving.  We typically […] The post Cost of Driving: Part 1 – Financial Impact appeared first on Saving for ...

Over the last few years we have really examined all our expenses as much as we could. One that I havn’t spent too much time on and most people don’t is our water bill. We’ve taken a number of steps over the years to reduce our water bill.  For 2 reasons.  1. Water costs money. […] The post Let’s talk about your water bill… appeared first on Saving for a Living. ...
