Getting started...

Every year as December comes to an end, I start taking inventory of my life and all the areas I want to improve in. Although I have quite a few areas that could use improvement, I'm really working on my finances. My husband and I are going through Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover program and are trying to get ourselves in shape financially. Since I tend to do most of the spending (grocery shopping, clothes shopping, school supplies, toiletries, etc), I have decided to tackle the task of saving as much as possible and reducing our budget in those areas as much as possible. I'll be blogging about our financial journey and posting money saving tips along the way. I'll also be posting freebies I come across (yesterday Suave was giving away free bottles of shampoo!) I hope you'll join me on this journey! Feel free to chime in if you have tips to share!


  1. Lisa, We're reading "Total Money Makeover" right now! I've been couponing for about a year now and I LOVE putting my shopping addiction to GOOD use! :) I didn't coupon for all our groceries, but when I did, I spent $1080 for the year and saved...$7700! I'm looking forward to getting more ideas from your blog!

  2.'s saying I'm Mike...I guess he set up the account. This is really Kim Jordan. :)
