The end of the month is near and that means that you should be looking closely at your budget. How are you doing this month? Are you over in any categories? Did you spend less in some categories?
The beauty of a budget is that it is fluid! Each month usually presents different events and items that need purchasing. Move your money and plan accordingly. Example: I get my hair done every other month (or so). The month that I'm getting it done, I budget X amount for that service. The next month, that category goes back to $0.00. I know that expense is coming up and that I need to plan on that money NOT being spent in another category that month.
I know budgets can be a pain to get started. However, life on a budget is so much better than the alternative! I promise, you can do it! Hang in there :)

I LOVE Living Social deals. They send daily emails deals (on anything you can imagine) for the cities near where I live. There have been some pretty awesome deals and at a fraction of the price. I have purchased many of the deals and have been very happy with the services. They even have travel deals! There is no commitment to buy anything, they just send you offers. Pretty cool :)

Good Monday Sassy Savers!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Do you ever feel unlucky when you are trying to save money or even couponing? You have a master plan and then get to the store to find that the hoarders among us have already cleared the shelves. Boy, that is annoying!
Anyway, there is hope! Yesterday we ran by Kroger after church, which typically is not my favorite time to go, and found an awesome deal on pork chops! I was on the cereal aisle, yes I remember exactly where I was! A man came over the intercom and said "while supplies last...pork chops .99 per lb!" Woohoo! Let me just say that I ran to the pork chops and waited for them to bring them out. It was very exciting! I was able to get 3 family packs of chops for less than $3.50 each!
That deal totally made my trip! It is always fun to get a great deal on something unexpected. That makes up for the times when it doesn't always go as planned.
My point here is to not beat yourself up over deals that don't work out. Instead, just know that there may be an even better deal just around the corner!
