I am no money expert. I’ve made plenty of financial mistakes. I grew up on welfare. I have thousands of dollars of educational debt. NOT PERFECT.
That being said… I am all about living a well-rounded life on a budget. Learning how to manage your money so that you have the money to pay the bills and lead an enjoyable life is a life skill I feel would be much more beneficial to high school students than some of the required courses.
One of the things I pride myself in is my ability to menu plan. My husband and I typically eat foods that I prep and make rather than eating out or getting a bunch of prepackaged foods. I’m not the best at it EVERY week. But, I do a pretty fine job. I’ll be sharing more about menu planning and a free printable menu planner tomorrow.
Recently I was shared the pretty neat infographic above about brown-bagging-it to save money. I thought I’d share it here with you and ask: What do you do to save money?
