Our Journey

Pinching Pennies

Over the years I have become more and more resourceful! Looking back I laugh at myself and cry over the amount of money I have thrown away. throwing-away-money In my defense I can only say that I didn’t know!!! Now I try to save on most things but there are certain comforts that I just won’t give up and that is okay with me. I am willing to pay a little bit more for good customer service, organic foods, and safety measures.

What items do you think you can’t give up?

While growing up there were certain food items that you ONLY bought, and ironically my mother still buys them. Whereas I have given up brand loyalty, first because of couponing and then because of healthy lifestyle changes.

So my 1st venture into the money saving world was couponing. While I did really well with getting some great deals, I soon realized that some of these items that I was getting, even though they were free, were not so good for us. 292061_2378062291147_6942957_n I started really worrying about our health. Also thanks to a certain TV show the deals didn’t last very long. When my subscription for the newspapers came due, I use to get 10 papers every Sunday, I decided to not renew. I realized that not couponing I was actually saving money, now I wasn’t in the stores every couple of days trying to get that particular good deal which really ended up costing me because I would usually see something I had “forgotten” and pick it up! 

So now as a homeschooling mama, that really needs to feed my family healthier and save money and use this as a learning experience, I decided to take my search to Google. So here are my top 5.

1. Powered Laundry Detergent

2. DIY Naturally Scented All-Purpose Citrus Vinegar Cleaners

3. Gardening – planting your own food

4. Composting – it really easy and helps with gardening

5. Pinterest well actually this one might cost you some but it’s kinda like recycling!!
