Saving Money

Saving money
Post contributed by Hilton Miranda

Ever since my husband began graduate school, money has been a little tight in our house. I have been trying to save money on groceries by using coupons, but the prep time to use coupons is about an hour or two each week and I do not always have that kind of time. We have been trying to stick to a cash budget, but most weeks we spend a little more money than we intend to. I did find a way to save on our power bill by searching “electric providers Texas”online. I had no idea that we were eligible for fixed-rate energy. We have also been trying to eat out less. I was amazed at how much money we saved the first month of budgeting by cooking at home more. With two small children, it is much easier to eat at home anyway. I know that our finances will be better in the future, after my husband completes his doctoral degree and his pay increases. I keep telling myself that this is just a season of life and money will not be this tight forever.
