Website on a FRUGAL Budget

Published by tacoman on Sat, 07/19/2014 - 05:51

Ok, well My blogging website is fairly new, and I am going to write about my personal frugal4life.com website and how I was able to set it up for only a dollar. Mind you, this might have to be with one condition where I started. I started by using google and I searched domain names. When I did this, a link popped up for GoDaddy.com where I can buy domain names for only $1, and I searched domain names. Frugal4life.com was actually the first one I tried.

Date Night, plus Frugal Tips for eating out

Published by tacoman on Sat, 07/19/2014 - 01:58

Once we were a couple that enjoyed not only going out to eat and getting what we want, but we also enjoyed the fact that we didn't have to clean up after ourselves.

Budget, video

I am posting this video from youtube on You Need A Budget (YNAB) program. The importance of assigning your monthly income and managing it will be the most crucial way to get a hold of your future.

I think it has some flaws, as in over complicating your budget.

Car Insurance Deductible to $1000

Published by tacoman on Wed, 07/16/2014 - 07:54

One way have saved $20 on our monthy Car insurance bill is to increase our deductible. We save a total of $20 a month to be exact by changing our deductible from 500 to 1000. It increases our out of pocket risk in case we were the cause of the accident. We are currently using Dave Ramsey's baby steps and in baby step one we need to save a 1000 into savings account just for emergencies. This would include fixing our cars in the case we were in an accident. It will take 25 months in savings without an accident of our fault for this plan to work out, so far we are in month 14.
