 I will be honest and admit that I hate working out. Just the thought of going to the gym or exercise in any form bores me. Some people recommend walking on a treadmill but I would rather go to the dentist. Even walking outside gets boring after a few days because I have seen it all before. My mind constantly needs to be stimulated and it is was very hard for me to find some way of doing that.  Then one day while trying to get work done around the house, I turned on my MP3 player and realized it helped block the random thoughts in my head about what else I could be doing. That is when I knew the only way to get excited about working out was to Get Motivated With Music.

Save Money Groceries

Tips Tuesday – Save Money Groceries

Save Money Groceries

Save Money Groceries

I am the first one to admit to regularly falling off the “budget bandwagon.” It generally happens when there is too much going on in our lives. It’s days when I feel I just can’t be bothered with checking to see if there is a coupon for an item, when I forget to bring my coupons to the store, or when I become too distracted by everything around me to even care.

Here’s an example, you go to the grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk and happen to run across half a dozen or more other items you just “must have.” You then purchase those items. The $4 trip to pick up milk has now turned into a $30+ trip which includes items we most likely didn’t really need right now. Repeat this scenario enough times and it’s enough to throw a wrench into an entire month’s grocery budget.

Here’s my Save Money Groceries tip in order to avoid this scenario.  I recently started keeping a small steno pad in my purse. I generally have three lists running; one for groceries, one for non-grocery items, and one which is a “to do” list. Before I head into the store for groceries or sundries, I tear out the appropriate list and scribble big $$$ signs on it with a highlighter. Yes, I keep a highlighter in my bag of tricks! This is a reminder to me that purchasing anything more than what is on the list is wasting money out of my grocery budget.

My husband always keeps a running list of things we need on a sticky note in the kitchen. When he goes to the store, he buys what is on the list and only what is on the list. I have yet to figure out exactly how he does it but with this new system I have, I’m hoping it will become crystal clear.

How do you keep from repeating this same money wasting scenario? Let us know so we can share it with our readers!

Amazon Music Samples

Amazon Music Samples 2

There is nothing worse than buying and downloading a new song  only to find out it is the wrong song, wrong version of the song, or it isn’t sung by the performer you thought it was. I also dread buying an entire album only to find that there are only a few songs I want to listen to. Most people do not even by the CDs anymore but rely on digital copies they can sync to all their electronic devices so they always have their playlists available and ready to listen to. I buy most of my music from the Amazon Music Store because of the Amazon Music Samples. Continue reading
