    This is a really good, detailed budget and I think I will have to make one like this for my family. We are currently downsizing in all areas of our life, I just haven’t actually put it in writing yet. I think I will do it this weekend. I have already shaved off almost $200 from our monthly budget just by moving to a different neighborhood where the rent is cheaper. (We currently pay almost $800 a month for rent for our 3 bedroom 2 bath and now we’ll be paying $595 a month for a 3 bedroom 1 bath.)

    I’m glad you made this post because it came right on time. I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of your new house.

    Take care,

    It is always amazing how the little amounts can add up. This also applies not only savings, but with spending. It is easy at the grocery store to think, oh this is just $1, I’ll buy it. Before you know it, the bill is way more than anticipated. It is always rewarding however when you do see the savings by cutting back in areas that will not cause discomfort.

    Another tip is to try and make more homemade foods, like bread, pancakes, etc. and freeze what you don’t need. we make huge batches of waffles from scratch and freeze most of them. This saves us a lot of money and time!
