I’m going to cheat a bit here and share a post I wrote for Bub Hub recently.
It’s about counting the pennies and is something we’ve really had to focus on lately as a one income family. It’s most certainly a challenge and one that is quite new to me. I wont lie, it’s given me a bit of a reality check and a kick up the arse. The thing is, receiving renewals and letters from insurance companies informing us that the premiums are going up (and quite substantially) is just really hurting and it’s getting to a point where I just don’t see how some people who are not as lucky as us are coping. Seriously, when are they going to stop going up if other things are not relative?
I always try not to let finances get to me but it can be difficult because I’m the ‘finance’ person of the house and so have a true idea of how we’re going and what bills are to be paid and sometimes it does make me nervous. But what I do try to do is come up with different ways that we can save, even if it’s a few dollars here and there, it all adds up in the end.
So today I thought I’d share my post ‘Counting the Pennies: 18 tips on how we’re saving’.
You can read the post here .
