Gorgeous on a Goodwill Budget

Yes, we shop at thrift stores and rummage sales.

March’s County Market Shopping Trip

March's County Market Shopping Haul

This month’s County Market’s shopping trip was more than a bit unusual and cut short due to my daughters health and trying fit our items into a scooter/electronic shopping basket.  I chose to skip several items as they were heavy or awkward and we needed to leave as my daughter was struggling but I decided to share the purchases I did make as well as my new shopping secret weapon.

Now for the savings breakdown: Read more »

February Budget Snapshot

February Budget Snapshot 2016

Please note: I will not be sharing our actual income and total expenses due to conflict and split family issues, but I will share our list of bills and how well we do controlling our gas, food and supplies costs since I can control those.

We are skipping January due to the fact it has already passed and I didn’t keep super great records but I do know we spent around on $200 on groceries and supplies for the ENTIRE month while we implemented the “Just Make Do January” challenge.
