With the arrival of Easter (I LOVE EASTER – Jesus is awesome!), they are a lot of great sales going on this week! Before I roll them out, I want to encourage those of you not on a budget, to get on a budget! Shop smart and buy what you can afford. Re-prioritize your spending, but please do not let Paleo put you into debt! (Dave Ramsey would be so proud of me for saying that!)

Having said that, I am so excited to say that I recently purchased Robb Wolf’s Budget Shopping Guide eBook ($14.99, instantly downloadable)! I haven’t read it all the way through, but am so excited to read about the following:

Tackling your problems one by one

Finding free money and extra time

Learn time-saving cooking techniques

Learn the foundation of cooking healthy meals on a budget – meal planning

Money Saving Tricks to push your budget even further

Budget Shopping Priorities

Making it work in the kitchen

As I glean information, I will gladly share! So look for more helpful tips coming up!

Ok, so here is what is ON SALE:

As I side note, I shop at Smith’s regularly and their meat and produce are wonderful! They have more and more clean items appearing at their store each day. I also think about the fuel rewards I receive as as result of my spending. Incentives like this should be considered when trying to get the most out of your money.

As a side note, I wanted to make you aware that if you are trying to save on household items such as laundry detergent, glass cleaner, storage tubs, toilet paper, toothpaste, and such, sometimes Family Dollar can be a good choice. I got their ad this week and it looked good. I will also tell you that I have purchased $5 shoes there for Rowen in the past, and they have lasted just as long as our Payless Shoe Store purchases and are still currently his favorite! Their kids summer play shoes are currently on sale for Buy One Get One 50% off. They also have a coupon going where you save $5 off on any purchase over $25. And if you think Family Dollar is ghetto (which means you most likely think Buy Low is too), then all that means is that you are not motivated enough to go there. However, if you are like me and have no shame is saving money and you shop at Savers (I LOVE SAVERS!) then get your savings on!!! Woot! Woot! Truthfully, Brandon makes good money, but we have a goal to live below what we make so that we can follow Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps to financial freedom (Say “FREEDOM!” like you are Mel Gibson in Braveheart and you will get the picture!). So for what it’s worth that is my two cents!

HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL! Please enjoy celebrating with your family and don’t forget that God loves YOU so much that He GAVE His one and only SON for YOU, so that whoever BELIEVES shall not perish, but have ETERNAL LIFE!

Enjoy the gift!
