That is terrific! I take and put away every dollar bill I get and all the change! I take all the pennies out and they go into there own container. I have been doing this for a long, long time and we DO NOT dip into it at all! I am also an avid coupon clipper. I clip EVERYTHING!!!! A lot of the things that I buy that are non-parishable go into our food storage. We also have a very large garden and I can just about everything from that.

Thank you for the welcome. We are setting aside a certain amount for savings each week and at the end of the week, what is left also goes into savings.

Failure isn't the opposite of success, it's part of success.

Hi! I'm joining because I want/need to save money for a newer vehicle and it's nice to see there is a group for budget minded individuals. This is the only team I've found concerning saving so far that has some activity. I'm happy I found it and thank you for letting me be part of the team.

Hello all my name is Tema and I'm new to the team as well and just started saving in April of this year so far I've saved 487 and don't know what took me so long to do it....I was a compulsive shopper and really needed a 12 step program lol.....but I quit cold turkey when I saw all the money I've spent over the years and have not much to show for it

I'm hoping by the end of the year to have an emergency fund of 3k plus by April of next year I'm hoping to buy a car cash

I'm making it one day at a time
TENACITY is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination! I AM a Tenacious Jungle Tiger and these are my survival skills!!

The key is to keep company with those who uplift you, whose presence calls forth my best....

Hi,
My name is Donna and I am interested in trying to save money so I can become a stay at home wife.
I did take early retirement but I still have to work (school bus driver) because we don't have enough money to go around. SO I want to try and see about frugal and simpler living.
I am hoping to find something I can maybe to with working from home.
I am hoping to learn some penny pinching tricks and maybe even offer a few.
Thank you,
Donna

Hello! I am re-introducing myself. I used to belong to this team, but had to eliminate as had too many teams! Now ALL of my teams are about being frugal which is what I want and need.

If you ever need a co-team leader, just yell! I would be happy to help.

Sincerely,
the_little_lady

So happy to have found you! I'm Terry, and I'm working to simplify my life and trying to save money in the process...
I really had to get myself together...in Oct of last year...my hours at my full time job was cut from 37 to 30 hrs per week...and on the same day...lost my part time job....really? but, after the initial shock and freaking out....I realized, all my charge cards were paid off...my car was paid off and so is my house...so all I really had to worry about was my utilities...I did get another part time job and working things out..
I am ready to learn from all of you and hope I can give a few thoughts of my own to help
