Savings tips to help you to Thrive, not just Survive!

Welcome to Living Well- Spending less.  A little over a year ago my husband and I set out on a journey to see how much money we could save.  I worked full time until my second son was born, and it was then that we decided that I should stay home with our boys and in doing so, figure out how to make our one income go farther than ever before. We had no idea how involved this process would become, but at the same time we have discovered how much money we were wasting.
The inspiration for this blog began with a few close friends.  When I shared with them how I was saving money on groceries, house hold items, and even on my laundry, some of them asked me to share this information at their home at a Money Savings Party.  I did, and was met with so many questions and a great deal of interest.  Another person in my church asked me to meet in their home to have a party for them to share some secret money saving ideas.  Being urged by many other people in my church and so forth I decided it might be time to make this information available on a broader scale.

So stay tuned for updates to my blog as I will be posting new information on a regular basis.

  1. Congratulations and Hope you are very successful in this endeavor. One way to save loads of money that we have been looking into is to always (if possible) when financing a home go for the lowest # of years for pay off of your loan that you can afford. If we had paid a little more in the 2.5 years we have been paying on our home and gotten the 15 year fixed loan instead of the 30 year, we would now owe 20,000 less on our home today. We can still reduce what we owe by 100 more per month, we would cut the number of years we have to pay in half.
