In 2009, my husband and I had to make a decision regarding our growing familly: Do I return to full-time work outside the home or, do I remain at home with our three children? Truth be told, I desperately wanted to remain home, but, the strain of raising three children was starting to wear on our family and we had to gain a financial advantage, somehow, in order for me to remain at home.
We took a long, hard look at our monthly expenses and, it hit me: our grocery bill. And from that single decision, came a hugh sigh of relief and we went from an expense of nearly $300 every two weeks at the base commissary (which was my first big mistake) to spending less than $50 per week at outside grocery stores for the same items, same brand names, same daily necessities and same enjoyments.
It was a savings of almost $5000 the following year! And although it wasn't the same as a second income, it was just the boost we needed for me to remain home and enjoy my committment as a stay at home mom.
And I want to share my savings strategies with you! Come be a part of the savings excitement at one of our local area coupon classes.
