For awhile now I have been trying to save money. The idea is kind of fleeting. I have still spent money on things I should have passed on. A little splurge here and a little splurge there. It is so easy to do.
We thought we would start looking for a home (EEK! Our own house! Mine!) toward the end of summer. We talked to our mortgage lender and the date has been moved UP. Meaning sooner. As soon as....A MONTH! As soon as we find something. SOON! Meaning I am completely, unbelievably giddy!
Well to make that happen I have to spend no money. Nothing extra. Skimp on everything. We have to save at the very minimum $1500 in the next month or so. That can be difficult in a one income home. At least in this one income home. Sure we are good and do not want for anything. We can even save a bit from each paycheck and that ads up but saving a big sum of money in a short period of time is completely different.
So I decided to blog about it. Because you know, that is what us bloggers do. ;)
Plus Rebecca posts a fabulous post every Friday on her blog about her week and how she saved money. So decided to join in with her. Have I ever mentioned how I want to be like her when I grow up? Yes? Ok. Well I am repeating it.
If you have any tips, advice, encouragement....spill it! I am going to need all the help I can get!
My goal is $1500 in 6 weeks but I would feel more comfortable with $2000. Be looking for my Friday posts and my transparency as I let you know how I am doing.
