Cutting your grocery budget is great but only if you can still successfully prepare easy budget friendly meals all week. Stocking canned beans, vegetables, canned broth, noodles, rice, etc. which can save you a lot of time and money overall. 1 can of b;lack beans, 1 can chili beans, 2 small cans or one large can of tomato sauce, 1 can Rotel tomatoes and chilis, onion powder, chili seasoning mix, chili powder and a dash of cinnamon. If you do not have a lot of time to cut and prepare you can always buy some of the bagged salad kits and add protein to make it a meal.

Certain debts can be a part of a normal budget such as home mortgage or car loan but excessive credit card and loan debt can be overwhelming and hard to get out from under. I was also blessed to have a previous article and experience mentioned by a friend in an article that was shared on MSN Money. Here are the links to two articles I wrote during this difficult time the first one was written when I found I would be losing my job and the second was written a few weeks later when I was blessed to be accepted back at a previous job. Working from home is providing more opportunities to save money on gas costs, the temptation to not pack my lunch and eat at home has been removed and overall it’s been a financial win.

4 Best paying online survey sites

Swagbucks payouts seem to be slightly lower and I find myself spending more time doing surveys for opinion outpost as a result. Take a little time to sign up for both to increase the money making surveys and opportunities. Opinion Outpost and Mypoints are the best survey sites to get selected for these opportunities. Opinion Outpost, MyPoints and Swagbucks all offer these opportunities from time to time.

Recognize the blessings of the simple things: your family, friends, job, a place to live, food to eat, clothes to wear. My favorite quotes on gratitude to inspire you How developing an attitude of gratitude will change your life Gratitude is not developed only when things are good, when we have everything we need and want or when our life is pain free. Gratitude gives us a different perspective on a very painful situation that can lead us forward step by step into a better life.

I love this quote #stopcomparing #stopcomparingyourself #joy #savingjoyfully
