Guest Post: 5 Ways to Save Money at the Grocery Store

Posted by Hallee on Apr 8, 2013 in Budgeting, Housekeeping, Life, Stewardship

Long before coupon blogs were popular, long before television shows about extreme couponing filled the airways, my friend Andrea and I would sit in the church nursery nursing our newborn sons and talk about the deals she’d found working a couponing system. It was amazing this skill she’d acquired. As she perfected it, she started teaching classes to women all over the central Kentucky area on how to save money the way she did. She is a master at it, and is an amazing teacher. For instance, look at the 50 things she got for free in February this year.

In This Scary Economy

Posted by Hallee on Feb 6, 2013 in Budgeting, Stewardship

While the cost of everything seems to be going up, rapidly, I can tell you that my husband’s pay hasn’t gone up in the last year. NOT that I’m complaining. I’m SO thankful has has a job, locally, and isn’t having to work 8,000 miles away anymore. But, health insurance costs doubled (why is everyone so surprised that happened?), and his paycheck doesn’t stretch like it used to.

So, what are we doing to adjust to the higher costs of goods but the same pay? Here are just a few ideas:

Budgeting Spreadsheet

Posted by Hallee on Jan 4, 2012 in Budgeting, Christian Faith, Stewardship

Last year, I wrote about the budgeting spreadsheet that I created in Excel to manage my household expenses. This was an INCREDIBLY popular post, and many people asked for a copy of the spreadsheet to be emailed to them.

Consignment finds & the smartest clothing invention ever

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2009 in Budgeting, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Stewardship

Consignment stores are such a godsend. Because we’ve never really had to buy clothes for the boys, they’ve never been anywhere on my radar. But when I told Gregg that I needed to get Scott new pants, he’s the one who suggested that I check out the consignment store first.

Making over our money, totally

Gregg and I recently made a commitment as a couple and as a family to get out of debt. We have a number of motivating factors for this, but our primary motivation is because the less money we’re paying out to interest payments or what have you, the more we have to help further God’s kingdom.
