On saving money.
I just walked in from my grad class a few minutes ago and got in the blogging mood. Tonight at class we discussed our personal ties to reading, and I was quick to mention my thrill for blogs. I got a little bummed about my lack of posts and was inspired to share a quick thought.
However, JD and I realized that saving can also occur on a day-to-day basis. We manage this by eliminating the little things that over time add up to big savings. Like skipping Starbucks and making my own tea. Or like on Sunday when we planned on grabbing subs from subway but realized we had plenty of sandwich stuff at home.
Don't get me wrong, I still occasionally buy Starbucks and we always treat ourselves on our Friday night dates, but we feel it's ok because we eat at home throughout the week.
Summary of my quick thought: A lot of little purchases can add up quickly. Look at your everyday spending to see where you can save a buck a or two.
