Purchase Gift Cards In Advance

When I know that we're going to be short on money, I purchase gift cards for places we frequent for recreation and/or gas, groceries, etc. That way if we want to do something later not in the budget we can use one of the gift cards for a specific amount and still have a good time!

Fit & Fresh

I love these products! I prepare my lunch the night before & everything is measured, stays fresh and, with the ice packs & my cooler, I can keep at my desk instead of the shared fridge where food is so often taken.
