For the past week, I was doing my best to clean the extra room in the house so that I can give a little space for my kids. And last night, it was their first night in the room. It’s a shared room and it’s so nice to see them using it after living in this house for more than 10 years. Thank goodness that finally that extra room is functioning. I am not done with cleaning though as I need to sort all of my things coz most of the things in there are my goods for sale online. I hope I can sort all my stuff and give a little extra space for the house and for each of the family members.
It is nice to know the fastest growing retailers in America. It says that these companies are:
2. Sherwin Williams
4. Family Dollar Stores
6. Tractor Supply Co.
7. Whole Foods Market
8. AT&T Wireless
9. Signet Jewelers
Have you tried purchasing products from any of these stores? As for me, I only tried the two stores so far and these stores are Amazon and Whole Foods Market. I do love amazon for my kindle books and other stuff. I do love whole foods for the rice dream ice cream for my eldest son who’s allergies to regular milk. I also love this store for some good steak, soy milk, soy products, and organic chicken.
For almost a year now, I am thinking of whether to work outside my home or to be full time stay at home mother and at the same time work online with a regular jobs while doing freelance writing. You know, I did my best to apply online but then, I was not successful. It was around 3 Continue reading

I don’t often talk about money on my blogs, and I rarely like to speak about it with my friends or family. I don’t have any big secrets, I just think these matters are personal. However, there is one aspect of my financial life that I share with people when asked because I like to give back where I can. That aspect is the ways that I save money each month. I think that everybody can benefit from sharing their ideas, and with this in mind, here are some of my favorites.
In the Kitchen
Your kitchen is the easiest and most impressive space that you can save money each month. It just takes a bit of extra time working on your budget. For example, here’s what I do when it comes to food:
- I sit with a calendar and plan what meals I would like to eat each day
- I compile a master list of all of the ingredients that will be needed to make the entire month of meals
- I then look through my master list and group similar or the same items
- With this final list, I look through my local supermarket catalogs and online deals for bulk savings for items on my list
- While it can often take me an hour or so to complete the shopping list, you wouldn’t believe the amount of savings I can make by taking advantage of bulk items.
Out and About
Just because I live on a budget doesn’t mean that I stay at home and watch movies all night long until I fall asleep. In fact, as you will likely have read from my previous posts, I’m quite actively socially. My trick is to use services like the Groupon Coupons page for Ticketmaster. Instead of paying retail prices for tickets to bands or movies, I take advantage of coupons.
If the word coupons make you remember the days of cutting out pieces of card from magazines and papers, the world of modern coupons is very different. Redeemable offline or with your cell device in hand, coupons have become a big part of how I manage my finances.
I have a car. There, I said it! But I rarely drive it. And I mean, I’m not like one of those people who always say they don’t drive their car but always seems to arrive in style to every event, I mean that I barely drive it. The reason is that I discovered just how much I could save if I didn’t use it.
I started by making a rule to start on the first day each month where I wasn’t allowed to use my car for the next month. At all! This forced me to get creative in my thinking. I found that a mixture of public transport, ride sharing services, bike-sharing services, and good old walking were super cheap replacements that not only reduced my monthly transport budget but also got me out and about to enjoy my local areas.
So there you have it! Three of my best tips for reducing my monthly costs. I hope that they can benefit you just as much as they do me!
Oh I’d love looking at this photo of an employee in Publix that helped an elderly with tying a shoelace. I think this man was the angel of this elderly. This employee’s kindness was so adorable. Hope everyone would do this to people who need help. It would be nice if there is a Publix store here in CO springs but there’s none. Anyway, I hope this employee would keep on helping people more.
Someone said to me, “you are weird”. And I like that word. Yap, that person is right that I am weird coz I am unique. I am created in the image and likeness of God. My spirit is from God and everything in me. God knows who I am more than I know myself. He is my master. He loves me Continue reading
I do love yahoo ever since I know how to learn about the internet. But then right now, yahoo has popup and it’s targeting Firefox browser. Why there’s some script or anything in yahoo when it’s a good website? Is it like that when it’s being sold? Just wondering! Hope #yahoo can fix their website coz it’s one of the sites the people love to browse for good stuff.
Writing helps me a lot in my life. Since I was a kid, my only friend is my pen with my papers. I would write just anything that I want to be out within myself. I was aloft when I was young even until now. I did not know how to make friends as I was very shy. Writing helps me a lot of ways Continue reading
