As I was walking home from work yesterday, the idea hit me that I should start a blog about saving money. Let's face it...this is a hot topic right now. Americans everywhere are looking for any and every way to save a few bucks, and I am certainly no exception. My personal goal is to try at least one thing each day to save and/or make some money.
A little about me...I am a female library assistant in her 20s and the mother of a 3-year-old girl. My husband of not even 3 years moved out of our recently purchased home a couple months ago, and he has no current plans to return, so I have become even more obsessed than usual about saving money.
So here is my very first post. Today, I started a blog to save money. Now I have a couple reasons why I think this will save me money. First of all, it will give me the motivation I need to do something new every day to save money. I will feel obligated to my followers (sounds like a cult, LOL) to post something new each day. Second, I am hoping to get some comments and tips from people that read my blog. I get so many suggestions from other people that really help me, so I am hoping that this can be a way for us to collaborate together and get some fresh ideas. Please feel free to post comments and add your own suggestions.
One last thing...ideas that I post, whether I come up with them myself or hear them from a friend, are ones that I personally put to the test. I don't want to give you a laundry list of meaningless tips without any knowledge as to whether they actually work. I want to tell you what I have tried, whether it worked for me or not, and whether I think it will work for you. I hope you enjoy my stories!!
