One Really BIG Savings Goal for 2019

One Really BIG Savings Goal for 2019

Goals, plans and new years resolutions. Those are the things that people do each year in anticipation for a brand new year. They’re going to make changes for the better. They’re going to start working out or losing weight. They’re going to buy a new home or pay a crazy amount of the mortgage off this year. Most new year’s resolutions are short term and only really focus on one year. It makes sense to focus on a small timeframe to make things attainable. However, I have never been a big new year’s resolution fan, as most people don’t follow through with their resolutions.

Year of Frugality: Month 3 Update

Just like that, we are one fourth of the way through 2018! Once again, we made really good progress in the spending realm and came up spending the least amount of money this year! This makes us pretty happy in the Summit of Coin household! We even took a little trip to the Laredo to visit my wife's grandmother. This trip was great for our family as got a chance to relax and I even found the time to play a round of golf. We were also helped out with a decrease in our childcare bill, because I had spring break. Our daycare charges half price, if you don't take your child during the week. Therefore, we saved a little money!
