Being Leaner Saves Lots of Money!

We live in Florida and it’s hot. Very hot. And it’s muggy. I have always suffered here in the very long summer. We’ve lived here for 8 years now and this is the first summer ever that we have not even thought of turning on the air conditioning.  Being leaner means we just don’t mind the heat!

I can’t wait to see my husband’s face as the bills show up this summer!Welcome to Florida! Don't overheat!

Another huge savings is food: groceries and eating out. We used to feel really silly splitting an entree but now we just go for it. Why on earth should we pay for twice the food we need?

We rarely eat out now anyway because we just find it simpler to have meals we made and know exactly what we’re eating. Groceries are not being wasted because of not eating out so much. And the grocery bill is just plain lower because my husband and I are eating less. Food is still expensive, don’t get me wrong, but by buying only a few days worth at a time and making sure to use it all up, we are running a tighter ship.
