Last week I wrote about what we don’t spend money on. Some of it may have surprise you. But we don’t live by candle light and never go anywhere. Today, I’ll share with you what is important to us and what we spend our money on.
Yes, we spend money on food – good food – healthy food – organic, free range, pasture raised food like our parents purchased. We make most of our foods from scratch and have home cooked meals most nights and bring our lunches to work. We rarely buy processed and prepared foods. Once the weather starts to warm up, I start my vegetable garden. It’s another way to have fresh food at a fraction of the cost. This is where we spend money. I like to think of this as back to basics. The same is true for our home. We clean with home made cleaners, made up of vinegar, baking soda, essential oils and water.
We also travel. We save most of the year to travel – sometimes local sometimes far. But we do this on a budget and look for ways to save with deals, points, miles and rewards. We are in the process of planning a trip for 2020 right now. It may seem far away, but to get the lowest prices you sometimes have to plan the travel when it becomes available. You may be aware of this with airfares that prices go up and up, the same is true for other travel plans.
