OK, so I haven’t even started the #whole30 yet & I’m already panicking about the biggest challenges for me. If you’ve watched my stories, you’ll know I’m meal prepping today & randomly changing my meal plan because I can’t handle the idea of eating tin salmon (so shoot me 🤦🏻♀️). Here are some other things I’m preparing to struggle with: 😼 No booze. I genuinely think this will be the biggest struggle for me. I love a glass of wine with my dinner or while I watch tv of an evening. Recently I’ve been using booze as a bit of a crutch though so I definitely think a little reset is in order 🙀 Cravings. I am a very cravings based person & will often demand we change up our meal plan on a whim because I don’t feel like our planned meals. Given how few options I have on the Whole30, I am definitely not going to be satisfying my cravings 😾 Toast. Need I say more? 😿 Eating out. I don’t eat out a tonne but there are a few unavoidable events during the 30 days. I just have to be prepared, do my research & stay strong 💪🏻 #budgetwhole30#whole30recipes#whole30challenge#budgetmeals#healthybudgetmeals#healthybudgetcooking#fitandfrugal#budgeting#budget#budgetliving
Since me and my husband just started the cash envelope system I want to talk about one of the categories I was very set on carrying cash for, gas. ⛽️
Gas is very expensive and obviously a necessity if only it wasn’t but, he works 35 minutes from our home not like he can ride a bike that far but wishful thinking,
I have set aside 100 a paycheck (every two weeks) I will see how much is let over and if there’s any cash left over I will leave it in the envelope in case theres every a time we need to take longer trips. 🚘

1st off - Hello to everyone who’s found me/joined me in the last 24hrs! Not sure how it happened but so exciting 🙌🏻
The #dollarstore has been my go-to place for finding glass jars for holding ingredients. Generally cheaper than anywhere else (even IKEA) and looks neat in my small kitchen. I have very weird/small cabinets so lots of things needed to be unbagged 🤷🏻♀️ Sure they may not all match but as they say; variety is the spice of life right?
Pure Storage is a 9% position for us. Strong NPS scores, strong ratings from Gartner, Strong partnership with Nvidia, and competitor NTAP (which I believe has inferior products) reported strong earnings last week.
All good signs for PSTG. I'm hoping for 40% revenue growth. Let's see what happens Tuesday.
Nvidia reported earnings last week. Very strong quarter. 40% revenue growth is great for a company that size. We're not invested in Nvidia, but these results are a good indication for PSTG, NTNX, and MDB. All reporting earnings soon. #investing#financialfreedom#founderstockinvesting

I visited Aldi's cousin today #savealot and got stuff for street tacos ( I know sour cream doesn't go on them usually but I am fat minded)
Lies I tell.... I would get this in step 1 and 2 (if I had known about the strips then). But my urge to run out and "get something to eat " are FAR LESS. SO....today I had that urge. Originally wanted pork chops but they were pricey so this was my compromise...added in a few sale veggies that I will eat plain or with a dip...I could eat a whole cucumber every dang day.
Cucumbers 2 for $1
Green Pepper 2 for $1
Limes 2 for .34
Cilantro Bunch .79
Sour Cream 1.49
Street tortillas 1.29 but a $1 coupon was right by them so .29 cents 🚨Splurge Alert🚨
FLANK STEAK IS EXPENSIVE at like $6-7 a lb but this store has tons of "personal size" packages so I got a 2.00 and a 1.50 package. $9 bucks for a random Saturday night urge...I try and get stuff that makes sense...urge or not

I wanted to share some really great deals of some of my favorite staples.
Seeds of Change brand sells several different varieties of organic quinoa/rice blends that you pop in the microwave. In a grocery store even with a coupon the very best price you’re going to find is about $2 a pouch. When Costco puts them on sale they come out to $1.22 a pouch😲!!!! As I have mentioned in some of my other posts we love Banza chic pea pasta. The average price of a box is $3.00, I know it’s pricey but it’s good for you and I’m all about healthy meals. Well guess what???? Costco just started selling it, currently they only have the rotini so I’d love to see other varieties in the future. There are five bags in the box, $8.59 total which works out to $1.72 per pakage😮!!!! I hope that at least one person can benefit from this post, I love a good deal on good for you food!

Peep my car keys hiding in my skirt 👀
I had the blessing of attending a networking event yesterday and learn a bunch on being more mindful with my money! 💗
I’ve always been bad with my handling money... I’ve told myself over a 1000x that I SHOULD start saving but I never took any conscious action to ACTUALLY do it. 😬
BECOMING MINDFUL WITH YOUR MONEY EARLIER PLAYS A BIG ROLE! ❗️❗️❗️
➡️ If 25 year old Maddy invests 2k annually in a company with an avg growth rate of 10%, when she retires at 65, her investment would’ve grown to $556,197 while if Bob were to do the same over 30 years but started at age 34, even though he invested 3x as much as Maddy, he’ll have $328,988 😳
I have made it one of my goals now to really ask myself before I purchase something: “do I REALLY NEED this?” and if no, I’m going to do everything in my power to FIGHT BACK that impulsive shoppers voice in my mind 😭💪🏻 I know it won’t be easy for me but I’m going to try my best!!! Because if I save $300 a month with a 6-8% return rate starting today, I can become a millionaire in 39-48 years 😆🙌🏻
HAPPY FRIDAY LOVELIES 😋💞
There’s a twofold feeling when you aggressively pay off debt. On one hand, you start to feel less stress about money knowing that you don’t owe as much of your hard-earned income to other people. On the other, you start to imagine what you COULD be doing with the extra money you’re throwing at debt. Save more for retirement? Take a vacation? Remodel the kitchen? Buy that new whatever you’ve been wanting? *coughpatiofurniturecough* Those (normal) what-ifs can either discourage you or motivate you. If you’re in the debt payoff grind, I want to encourage you to use it as motivation. My husband and I are looking at the money we’ve been shoveling at this student loan and instead of dwelling on what we’d RATHER use it for, we’re dreaming of what we’ll be ABLE to use it for once the debt is gone. We are going to meet our goal of paying it off in 2018, and it’s starting to get really fun to dream 😍😍😍😍😍

💁🏾♀️ Even people who aren’t even in the #debtfreecommunity join in on No Spend September!
🙋🏾♀️ But FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m going on a trip to the East Coast with my family at the beginning of October ...so this would be a smart move for me!
🙏🏿 So don’t you wanna join me in another #NOSPENDMONTH!? Please Please Please???
🙋🏾♀️ I’ll definitely want to document it more this time around ...AND maybe start a Facebook group for some accountability and support!??
