I had lots of people sign up for my daily emails yesterday. I am so glad that people are trying to save money and get some free stuff for themselves. I am not promoting buying things but what I do try to teach is a saving lifestyle. It doesn’t take much time or effort to save money but you must want to start. I do make it a little easier so I hope that you all find the emails helpful.

Have you ever opened your wallet and thought where did that $100 dollars go? Most of us don’t even realize what our daily spending adds up to. Social spending situations – dining out, grabbing drinks with friends are some of the places that your money disappears into thin air. Take a cash sabbatical. Go a day or more without spending any cash or using your credit card. This exercise will help you work through your sale stockpile. Getting all these great deals with coupons will only be productive if you use everything. Remember sales come around every six to eight weeks so even if you use your stockpile you will be able to replenish it soon. What this will also do is make you use your products that are getting close to expiring. Dealing with money can trigger many emotions like anxiety and greed which makes it hard to get perspective. So from time to time when you arrange a day when you don’t buy anything at all it will be a satisfying feeling.
