While I was reviewing my budget from last year, I noticed quite a few things. Not only did I save myself over $3,000 just by tracking my spending, but there have been a few side hustles that I’ve tried that have failed miserably and a few that have worked out in my favor.
I value my time highly and do not want to spend much time on one avenue when the payoff is poor. I work a full-time job already, and anything that takes away from my off-time has to be worth it. That’s why I don’t do any extreme couponing – because of the amount of time it can take. I would rather just shop smart and live beneath my means – which is why I made this blog. I want to be able to share my techniques (which should be realistic) with the rest of you. So, let me tell you what I tried in 2016.
