On the topic of money.

Do you wake up in the morning thinking about how to make wealth? Do you often think about how you can better your own situation? I do this, but a lot of this revolves around how can we keep what we have and still save money. For example, can we make our cable bill cheaper or our grocery bugdet less? The less money we spend on what we pay for now, means the more money we can put in our savings, which is, in turn, how we will build our wealth.

I use coupons, although sporadically. I only use them on the items I typically buy anyway. We keep our house at a warmer temperature in the summer time and a cooler temperature in the winter time, as to avoid the high cost of heating and cooling. I prepare a lot of meals completely from scratch, as to avoid the high cost of processed foods, and it is the healthier option, knowing what you are putting in the food to make it - from start to finish.

I am not yet thinking about how I will become a millionaire, rather I am more thinking about how I can save 100 dollars next month. ha ha.. Well, you have to start somewhere.

WOW! Clearly you're doing a lot more thinking on this than I am! I don't think so much about how much wealth we can accumulate as I do about how we can be comfortable and yet spend more time together. If I could figure out how to have enough income coming in to pay the rent, tv, light bill and phone, and have hubby home every day, and not working in a job that requires so much out of him...I'd be good!! That would be almost as good as a million dollars to me! ^_^

I'm pretty much the same way. I don't bust my butt to use a coupon on everything, but we keep house temps conservative, cook at home for all but one or two meals a week, and use coupons when we can. The little things make a difference, too.
