August 2011 Review — 4 Comments

  1. Congrats on continuing to save in August. That’ s great. We have been working on changing our budget recently so we can save more each month. September is a trial run though. Once we see how we do then we will implement something a bit more permanently.

    • Thanks Miss T. :-) Budget transitions can sometimes be a bit tricky, hope your goes smoothly. I really need to make some changes to ours as well.

  2. Great job! It always amazes me to see all the things you save money on. Keep up the good work – you are great motivation for me to try harder to be frual (I think I do alright at it too, so that’s saying something. 😉 )

    • Thanks 20’s Finances. :-) I’ve been slacking a bit with my online earnings as well as ways to save money. Little by little though, it all adds up.
