No photo with today's post, just a quick "shout out" to let you know that one of my goals for 2014 is working! We are lowering our monthly outlay of money by undertaking numerous frugal activities...and are increasing our savings with the money not spent! FINALLY! We have been trying to "frugal" for several years and have been incorporating "frugality" into our lifestyle a little bit at a time. For many years it has been three steps forward, one step back. Suddenly, though, it is like all of those "little things" are finally starting to add up. I cannot begin to tell you how HAPPY I am with our accomplishments! It is like our mindset has suddenly flipped all the way, instead of teetering between spending and saving!
If you still find yourself in the "teetering" stage...don't lose hope! Mindful, deliberate living and frugality are DEFINITELY the lifestyle choices to make; and the rewards are worth so much more than money!
