Day 9 of $30 for 10 Days
I wish I could add a little more drama to my recent posts like…starving…can hardly type…dizzy…In actuality, going on a 10 day run with only $30 hasn’t created any kind of crisis. Sure, we had to sacrifice extras on the grocery run, only necessities, but we’ve kept full bellies. I’ve been rationing what’s left of my face moisturizer. Every morning, I...
Day 8 of $30 for 10 Days
Brad and I survived the weekend without even spending our remaining $1.27. I think we’re going to make it through this challenge. We’re so lucky that our friends hosted an Oscar dinner party last night and overfed us. Still stuffed. Let me emphasize, though, this really hasn’t been as hard as I initially thought. Brad had complete confidence last Monday, when we looked into our...

Beautiful spring-like weather in the Bay Area is easing any pain of not spending money during our $30 for 10 Days challenge.

Whatever, I finally get the feeling I’m in a better place mentally. January and February have been much tougher months for saving money. Brad thinks it was...
I can’t say that I’ve entered the New Year all Gung-ho and zoomed in on my savings goals. But by golly, I need to snap out it. There is a little bit more time left in the month of February, and I’m all about making it happen. (Art: peasforeveryone on Flickr)
On Being Blog: The Drawbacks of Putting a Price on... →
Although my blog’s focus is about saving money, I find it incredibly sad that so many put a price tag on time. Personally, I value my “free” leisurely time far more than my work time. My time is measured in a nonmaterial form of currency that is incomparable to physical currency. As a commenter on this linked article eloquently phrased it, “Soul Currency”. -Sarah ...
Eating Healthy and Saving Money
It’s Farmers Market Tuesday in my neighborhood and Valentine’s Day, which makes me think of food! We Saved by the Bay is all about eating on the cheap, but that doesn’t mean eating unhealthy or not having a social life. Here are some fun past post links where I ponder these things: Social Dining at Home Eating Cheap Eating Healthy Poor Girl Eats Well The Under $15 Shopping...
