If you are new to the magazine, Making the Most of Monday is a regular part of our features. Mondays signify one important thing, a fresh start. It's like a new years resolution at the start of every week.
Hopefully by Monday you've taken some off time during the weekend to rejuvenate, spend quality time with loved ones and friends, which makes Monday your chance to really get to work and make the most of your week.
Well, hello Monday!
How is everyone this morning? I have to say, I'm feeling pretty darn good this Monday morning. We had our first weekend of doing absolutely nothing or anything that we didn't want to do in a long time and boy was it nice. Monday is here though and that means a new week. This week, I'm super busy with homeschooling activities and becoming more frugal. A friend of mine has been inspiring me lately, although I haven't told her, but my goal this week is to get on the frugal wagon! I think I'll pick her brain a bit and find out more of her tips and tricks.
Speaking of frugal, It has been a couple of days since I mentioned Swag Bucks to you, but I wanted to let you know that it is in fact real and it works. I've already earned a $5.00 gift card to spend at Amazon, just for searching the internet. My frugal friend also sent me another link today called Groupons. I've signed up and I'm pretty excited about the savings there. It is a group coupon website where the more who purchase the more you save type of thing. If you aren't in the Greater Cincinnati area, don't worry there are many other cities to choose from. From this site I've learned about a organic fresh fruit and veggie delivery service that I had no idea was in my area. Check it out for yourself Groupons.
FYI: Frugal doesn't mean cheap, it means your smart.
What about you? What are your goals for this week? Do you have any frugal tips to share?
