For someone who doesn't "do" resolutions, I've spent the past few weeks in a bit of an overhaul. I've cleaned out junk piles, I've developed new and better routines, I've streamlined my planner, I've gotten rid of clutter and I've organized what's left.
Maybe the trick is NOT to do a resolution, since I'm certain that if I had, it would be broken by now.
When it comes to saving money, there are things that are easy to fix, and things that are more difficult. Some savings are immediate, but some take time. Adam and I took a little while to figure out some of the less obvious ways that might not show an immediate impact, but will make a big difference overall. Turning lights off, lowering the temp by a few degrees, that sort of thing. We also decided to take a good look at our gas mileage to see what we could do to save a few pennies there.
Sure, gas prices have gone down, but saving on gas is still something we focus on. I love using reward points from the grocery store and I'm particular about finding the best places to fill up, but we also investigated some tips that will help us fill up less frequently.
Little things that make a big difference!
