Okay, so we have talked and talked about some of the things that are helping to keep us broke, but now it’s time to get to the nitty gritty. I mean the real deal down to earth reasons that we are staying broke. These are the things that are most important to change in our lives in order to change our financial future.
So we talked a little bit about it yesterday, but you know as well as I do that in today’s world, there are just too many things that are out there keeping us broke. What are these things though? And how do we keep them from affecting our lives so much? I don’t know about you, but I have literally no interest in being broke forever. I am ready to thrive my friends! How about you?
Do you feel like you are always broke? Like no matter what you do, you are going to be in the same situation all the time? I know it seems like it never gets better, but I promise you it can change. You just have to change your mindset. That means that first, you need to realize that there are things that are making you broke and until you change those things you are unlikely to change your situation.
We are in a crazy housing market right now. There are high prices and high demand where I live. It’s a great time to sell your home.

I know that talking about ways that you can save money on groceries can seem pretty repetitive, but there is a reason why we talk about it all the time. Saving money on groceries can save you a lot of money all year long! In case you need a refresher, here are some of the best tips for saving money on groceries that you can follow to make a huge difference in your family’s budget!
The other day we went over five of my favorite tips for saving money. I knew that I would be addressing some more tips soon so I really paid attention to my spending habits this weekend while I was out and about and while I was home and I was reminded of a couple of things that I had actually forgotten. As it turns out much of what I do throughout my days is focus on how I can save money.
Are you struggling to save money? Does it seem like no matter how much money you have, it is always gone by the end of the month? I know that for the longest time I struggled with this. I work for myself and sometimes I do well, sometimes not so much, but my husband makes pretty decent money and we were finding ourselves in the same financial position all the time. Until we decided that enough was enough. It was time to get serious about saving. I decided to make myself a little rule sheet to keep me going when I would start to fall behind in my savings goals.
Are you hanging out at the pool everyday like we are? We are loving the pool and beach days. However, one thing that is driving me crazy are the snacks and foods we bring and eat while we are at the pool. Sometimes I feel like we are only eating junk food. Other times I feel like I didn’t bring enough treats! I’ve come up with a good list of items to bring to the pool that will keep you both filled with healthy foods and give you a little treat too. You might want to consider grabbing a cooler bag to bring along.
This weekend as a family we came up with a summer bucket list! I’ve seen these all over Pinterest the last couple of years and thought they were a great idea but since we’ve made ours it’s been awesome! My kids are so excited to see what we’re going to check off the list next and since a lot of them were ideas they loved they feel more involved and excited about our summer bucket list and plans we have! So I’m sharing what we’ve come up with and put on our list…lots of them are free or were already on our summer plans so it makes my job easier!
What are your summer plans? If you are on a budget, it is easy to simply plan to do nothing, but do you really want your kids going back to school this fall and telling their class that they watched TV all summer long? I didn’t think so.
