How I'm Saving Money this Month

Saving money is always important, but especially right now for my family.

In the last 30 days, we have: installed a new well pump, replaced a no-go refrigerator/freezer, and paid for major repairs on my SUV.

I'm feeling poor.

But I always say a little creativity goes a super long way.

So this month, I'm saving money at the store by not buying any beauty products.

But I won't be ugly in February. I promise.

If you're like me, you've collected quite a few versions of wrinkle creams, serums, and lotions in your bathroom cabinet. Did I mention eye cream?

So this month, I'm burying my brand loyalty and using up everything I have. I won't spend a dime, and I'll clean out the cabinets at the same time. Sounds like a plan, right?

If I have to sneak, I can always pick up my trusty Aldi brand facial cleanser (hey, it's European!!) at the store for a little more than $2.

Using what you already have is economical and always eco-friendly!
