About This Blog

In a world full of blogs about saving money, I hope for this blog to offer you a different perspective. Part of this blog will be about ways I am saving money and how I am doing it, but it will also be about so much more. It will be about saving time and money. It will be about saving you stress. It will be about helping you to live more providently.

I'd like to take some time to describe provident living. It comes from my religious background (if you want to know more about that, please ask). Its main goal is that if you are prepared, you will not fear. In a world full of uncertainty, wouldn't it be great to feel secure? Living providently will help achieve just that. So let's establish some of what it means.
  • Getting and staying out of debt.
  • Planning for emergencies
  • Growing a garden
  • Creating food and money reserves for a rainy day
  • Being prudent with our resources
  • Caring for our health, both physically and emotionally
  • Serving others
  • Gaining more knowledge
So join me as we learn to "use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without!"
