SMALL CHANGES!

We are now at a time when the word change is very necessary,
People are losing jobs, homes…money is tight,
And for those of us who are blessed enough to still be employed,
It is amazing how much we can save by making small changes…
For years, I stopped by Starbucks every day, to the tune of about thirty dollars a week,
Didn’t seem like much,
Most days I ate lunch from a nearby restaurant,
Usually ten dollars a day,
Okay we are already at eighty dollars a week,
And I would purchase a magazine or two a week, another ten dollars,
Which translates to over 4500.00 a year…
Wow think of that invested or heck, think of how many food banks or charities,
One can support with eighty dollars a week!
That is grocery money for some families,
And believe you me, we had all better start doing just a little bit for others,
Because one never knows when they will be on the receiving end…
And these kind of changes are really painless,
Because the coffee I make is pretty tasty,
And my own spinach and chicken breast is good,
And healthier,
And a one time subscription to those magazines,
Is usually about the cost of two magazines,
See how easy it is…
And there is still a little money for books…
Speaking of books…
RAMBLINGS: Volume 1,
Is ready for preorder!

Hey Mama Deep my husband and I incorporated some of what you mentioned about a year or so ago. When I calculated what he was spending on food a week, I had to stop it. So now eating out is a luxury and happens once in a while rather than every day.

Congrats on the new book.

Thanks Sweetie,
it is amazing how much we spend without thinking about it and then say we are broke...

Smooches,
mama deep

I don't eat out much anymore either. I actually prefer home cooked meals now. There used to be a time where I ate out 75 percent of the time...now it's maybe 25 percent of the time.

Congrats on Ramblings!!!
