Have you had a hard time setting up your grocery budget for 3? Here is everything we eat, spend, and do for our grocery budget for 3. Ever since we got serious about buckling down with a budget, it has been apparent that our grocery budget is by far the most likely category in our budget that we will overspend on. Sticking to our grocery budget has taken commitment. We both ...

We recently returned from a trip to Destin, Florida, inspired but otherwise uninterrupted by Hurricane Irma. We decided we ought to practice what we preach, and got a group of friends from church together to donate supplies to Hurricane Irma victims. We planned out our trip the week before Irma was supposed to hit, not really knowing what we would get when we arrived the following weekend. We drove to an ...

We are deeply saddened to hear of the impact of Hurricane Irma. Many people are without homes. There is flooding. There were deaths. There is still a lack of power for over a million people in its path. Mother Nature is angry. In the United States alone, wild fires have burned through California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Montana has been on fire since JULY—sustaining fire ...

I am not a person who adores fall. Not that there is anything wrong with fall, but simply for the fact that it represents the close of summer and basically the start of winter. What can I say, I’m a summer person, and I’m not afraid to admit it. Many of my friends are fall people, who are excited about pumpkin spice everything and wearing boots and scarves. This year ...

Last weekend I turned the big 30! I told myself last year that I wasn’t going to get upset about turning 30, and I didn’t. There is power in positive thinking! Plus as everyone knows, 30 is the new 20. So I really feel great about being 30. But financially speaking, turning 30 has given me pause. We accomplished a lot in our 20’s, but since we were in school, our ...

Guess what? I turn 30 next week! To celebrate, we wanted to do a few give-aways for the month of August, starting today. This weekend we are giving away Dave Ramsey’s book, “The Total Money Makeover.”   Admittedly, we don’t follow Dave’s approach exactly, but we LOVE this book. It is a great place to start thinking about your financial fitness and getting your financial life in order. It was one of ...

Yesterday I was perusing the clearance rack at my local market (a strategy I use for saving money while trying to eat healthy on a budget). I turned the corner and beheld a site that I always mourn seeing– the back to school isle. Back to school already?? I feel like summer is just getting started. Millions of kids across the country will start school in just a few short weeks. ...

Happy Amazon Prime Day! Did you know Amazon Prime Day is apparently a thing? We haven’t really paid attention to it until this year.. and we’re glad we did! Amazon is unloading some SERIOUSLY great deals– starting now! Amazon Prime day runs from now through midnight tomorrow night, July 11 at midnight. Of course, you have to be an Amazon Prime Member to take advantage of these killer deals. Not a member? Fear ...

Is it just me or does it feel like there is a holiday every other week these days? I think social media plays a big factor in both creating/exacerbating the need to over-celebrate things. Which can be fun. But also can quickly blow your budget. One holiday we love to over-celebrate though, is Father’s Day! We love our dads. But…we don’t love blowing our budget. Here are 10 easy ways ...

Ah, it is starting to smell like the sweet smells of summer around here. Freshly cut grass, chlorine, warm rain, you know, all those good smells. Summer always has me thinking about vacation. Vacations are trickier these days now that we are whittling away at paying off our $600k of student loan debt.  Despite that stark fact, last week, we went to Moab, Utah with Danny’s family on a little vacation. ...
