Living on $30 a week and other ways to save money

4:26 PM

Maybe you're tired of overspending.

Maybe $30 a week for a household budget won't work for your family. 

Maybe you're just one person and that's a reasonable goal. 

Maybe you're really into coupons, but you want to figure out how you can save even more.

One of the most important parts about running a household is learning how to minimize the amount of money you spend and figuring out exactly how you can start to save money. In today's blog post, you'll find an assortment of resources designed to help you start minimizing the amount of money you spend and helping you learn how to save.

Whether you're living on a single income, you're trying to save for a specific goal, or you just want to be more conscious with your budget, there are several important things you need to know about saving money.

First off, keep in mind that saving money takes time. It's not something that's going to happen after a single day of not spending. You'll need to give yourself reasonable goals and the time to reach those goals. While it would be great if saving money happened overnight, it doesn't really work that way.

Also understand that sometimes, there are going to be setbacks. Maybe you'll start saving up and in a few weeks, your car will break down. This can make saving a bit more difficult, but not impossible. Just keep going. Do your best, and even when stuff happens, try to stay focused on your goal.

Finally, remember to constantly re-evaluate your goals. Can you save more? Can you save in different ways? Are there some areas of your budget you haven't balanced, but need to? Don't be afraid to re-evaluate the goals you're setting and how they're working for your family.

If you're ready to find out more about saving money, here are some fantastic resources I've rounded up. Some of these are free blog posts and a couple of them are books. Check them out, and then leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
