My sons need silverware for their off campus apartments. Goodwill Outlet to the rescue! There is more than enough used and already manufactured stuff to fill consumer needs for years and years. Please consider buying used for your wants and needs. #frugal #cheapmama #usedisbetter #thecompact #whybuynewwhenusedwilldo #goodwill #goodwilloutlet #thebins

A little thrift shopping yesterday. Adorable metal water bottle, 2 fall shirts for me, 3 pairs of pants for my oldest and 1 for my youngest. .

Sunday night is usually roast night here. This week we are having roast chicken. To make cleaning up easy, I buy a roll of aluminum foil (just homebrand for $2.70 - a roll lasts for ages and is cheaper than the throw away trays) and line a tray with foil. I also make 4 small balls for the roast to sit on. Once the roast is cooked, you just throw away the foil. Occasionally oil may get underneath, but it washes away within seconds with hot water. No more scrubbing/soaking trays or trivets for numerous hours. πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²

Thrifty finds 😍 minus the candle and faux plant

Trimmed and deep conditioned my hair yesterday because I was desperate to stay busy on my mandatory rest day, and most importantly it cost me nothing!

Hi. πŸ™‹πŸ»I realized I haven't really formally introduced ourselves yet. I'm Natalie and my husband is Stephan. After seeing some friends go through Financial Peace University, paying off their debt and then buying a home, we got super motivated. Something about watching someone you know be successful makes it seem more attainable. My husband has over 20,000 in student loans (he was on the "six year plan" as some so lovingly called it πŸ˜†) and we have a 22,000 loan for a new Rav-4 we bought a few months ago (pre Dave!). We finally buckled down and made a commitment as a couple to kick our debt by October 2018! I'm super stoked at the idea of financial freedom. Freedom to sell our house and buy a dream home, freedom to stay home with my toddler, freedom to do more IVF transfers in hopes of having another baby (#infertilitysucks) and NOT go into more debt!! Here's to going #gazelle for the next 14 months - I think if we hustle we might be able to finish this sooner. Let's do this!

I had such a nice time with my girl at Starbucks. I had a little left on a gift card for her chocolate milk and I had a free drink for entering star codes that I get on bags of coffee I buy at the grocery store. *see second pic. #starbucks #starbucksstarrewards #starbucksfreedrink #free #freebies #starbizzle #frugal #saver #pennypincher #saveyourmoney #frugalliving #frugallife #sahm #frugalmom #frugalmomma #frugalmommy #frugalmomista

Starting in September, we'll re-evaluate our grocery budget, now that Alex has his new job. But for now, we're still living off of savings since there's no paychecks as of yet, so we're still going super frugal! Here's how last week went for dinners, feeding four adults and a toddler, who gets his own meal, but nibbles on ours, too.
βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–
- Monday: 2 Aldi pizzas (total ~$11.98: 16 slices)
- Tuesday: crockpot Italian sausages and vegetables (total ~$7.17: six servings)
- Wednesday: leftovers from previous week
- Thursday: crockpot Hawaiian meatballs and white rice (total ~$13.10: seven servings of meatballs and 11 servings of white rice)
- Friday: crockpot Martha's maple chicken with veggie bow tie pasta (total ~$9.05: six servings of chicken and five servings of pasta)
- Saturday: 4 hamburgers and French fries from local restaurant (not included in grocery budget, as we used Alex's tip money from his summer job)
- Sunday: spaghizza (total ~$6.35: 10 servings)

One week of dinners for $47.65 isn't bad, I think! Everything yielded leftovers for lunches and more dinners!

I love love love sleeping bags for babies! They can roll around during the night and you don't have to worry about the blankets coming off and the bubbas getting cold. Now is the time to buy them! Most stores have winter stuff reduced to make way for Summer stock. I picked this one up from best & less on clearance for only $7! We are still having some really cold mornings where I am, and although I'm not 100% loving this patten, at $7 I can't complain. It keeps Sterling nice & toasty! πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘πŸ’²πŸ‘
