My husband and I established some specific savings goals this year and together we have been cutting out or cutting down on expenses. We spend a little bit of time every Sunday talking about how we are doing and what we can do better. Through trial and error, we have found that this works best for us. When we let too much time go by to check our progress, we begin to drift. Knowing that we are going to have a weekly conversation helps to keep us on track.
While still staying on budget, I wanted to do a home improvement project this summer so I worked hard to squirrel away a little money. I focused on grocery stores savings and stretched our food dollars through meal planning, buying what was on sale and not eating out as often.
