Money is something that it seems all of us are thinking about more and more. How to save money, what is actually worth spending our money on, and how can I get more of it?
I think this is one I might relate a little bit more to lifestyle choice. You see, we eat pretty healthy around here. I don’t keep junk food or sweets in my house and the foods I buy are wholesome, organic foods for meals with the occasional healthy snacks. I think it’s funny to hear people talk about how expensive it is to eat healthy and organic. So you’re telling me it wasn’t expensive to stock up on soda because there was a sale, toss an extra package of Oreos or Doritos into the cart and hit a fast food place on the way home? Please tell me you’re kidding. Guess what, I spend not even $50 a week on organic groceries how much did that last shopping trip with all those junk foods cost? How about the $20 you just laid our for greasy burgers and fries for your family? Don’t get me wrong, we do eat out occasionally and I like Oreos, but I think we save so much money by simply not buying items that are purely junk snacks. Those foods are convenience foods and you are paying for the convenience of not having to make them yourselves but then sacrifice quality and health. I also use coupons if they happen to be in the weekly ad I pick up during my shopping trip, but I’m definitely not an extreme couponer by ANY means. So just think of how much money I could REALLY save then. =)
