      Well that pretty much made my whole week awesome. I printed that out and hung it in my office for the next time I’m struggling with a blog tech issue and want to throw the computer off a super tall bridge. Thank you! 🙂 You’re awesome for being the kind of person that writes things like that.

    Ooooh! I need to look into that prescription one. I hate going to the pharmacy so I would love that! We also do a huge shopping trip at the beginning of the month and maintenance shop when needed (which is usually no more than once a week). Recently, I went through and unsubscribed to a bunch of emails. That saves me at least 10 minutes every morning!

      Emails slowly kill me. There’s about 100 emails to sort through to get the 2 you care about. I finally just created a separate email for promotions, so I could scan it before I planned to purchase something. Of course right after I did that Gmail rolled out it’s “promotions” and “social” tab so technically that was time wasted… but points for effort!

    When I get home from work the last thing I want to do is head back out to run errands. It’s actually a running joke in our house how much I hate doing them. I totally believe that spending 10 minutes doing a quick inventory on groceries and household items will save you HOURS later.

    Most libraries now offer an online service to check out e-books. You need a library card # to get started. Now when I see a book I would like to read, I check my library app first!

    My husband laughs at me because I order all our household items online through Jet.com. Finally, I showed him the difference i was saving in ordering versus the times I would go to the big box store, you know who I am talking about. Every time I went to that store, I would wander around for an hour, even though I was there to get laundry soap and trash bags. At the end of my wandering, I would have over $300 of stuff in my basket that I didn’t even go there to get. Another tip, I could add is for those with pets, check out Chewy.com. I save on average about $200 a month. We have 3 English Bulldogs, a Chihuahua, three cats, and 7 fish tanks. Just a thought for all of you.

    I am loving all these tips you have. I have a new goal to get all of our credit cards paid off and need to get my budget in order.
