    I can appreciate where you are coming from – I have seen family members suffer as they reach the end of their working life and don’t own their own home or have enough savings to take them through their retirement. Making financially sound decisions as early on as possible is so important

    I am always trying to cut back on expenses so I can have extra money to enjoy the things that I am passionate about. However, it is not always easy trying to be frugal and increase your income. A lot of people can benefit from a financial diet. They just need help doing it. They need some guidance and a good coach. I think you will do well with your blog!

    I was raised in a frugal home as well. Mainly because we had to. It definitely makes it easier when it comes to needing to go on a financial diet.

    I have been avoiding this very topic. I am afraid of what a financial diet will do to my frequent trips to the Dollar Tree! LOL Yet, your reasons for doing it are very similar to mine. Sitting here trying to talk myself into joining you.

    Just like food, it’s not about dieting. It’s about spending less than you make (live within your means)!

  10. I like your focus on a minimalist lifestyle as Americans through too much money away on stuff we don’t need … and you’ve got the experience as a child to know how true that is, so good luck.

    A financial diet I have never heard of before but I love the concept. These are some great ways to save money diet financially. I am going to have to look into getting this book. Thanks for sharing the information.

  14. It sounds like you have an exciting journey ahead of you. I would say to be sure to give yourself reasonable goals. You want doable goals so you don’t come up short and lose the inspiration and excitement of getting on the right track. AKA Don’t set yourself up for failure with unreasonable expectations. Best of luck to ya! 🙂

    Have you tried grocery rebate apps? I blog about those a lot because they’ve helped me. I paid for my family vacation to Florida this summer by couponing and using rebate apps.
