Nicole at Rolling Out Dough invited me to post an article on saving money —

Saving money.

It’s on all our minds these days, whether or not we’re employed, unemployed, or wondering how long the job we’ve got will last. No matter how much money is coming in, it never seems like enough, and that’s not our imagination. Over the last 20 years, the prices of many basics — housing, fuel, food, insurance, medical costs, taxes — have gone up, while our real wages generally haven’t.

So we find ourselves wondering how we will maintain our lifestyle with decreasing resources. It’s a scary thought, but it doesn’t have to be.

While as individuals we have little immediate impact on the larger political/economic picture, we do have some control over what money is left in our paycheck. A series of decisions, small and large, that we make each day, add up over time to either positively or negatively affect our financial health.

Learn the lifestyle of living happily while saving money.

The secret to saving money isn’t a secret — it’s a lifestyle. Live Happily on Less
