First Week

Hey everyone. My name is Tori. I am a mom of 3 beautiful children, 2 boys and a girl and I am married to the most wonderful man in the world, Mark. The reason for my blog, is because we are doing a 30 day challenge. You might be wondering what kind of challenge we signed up for, so let me just explain. We were asked to be as frugal as we can possibly be for the next 30 days. Seems easy, right? Well we thought so at first until we realized how tough it was going to be. We met with Mark Bradshaw from CH. 8 and realized just how much extra we were spending on things like eating out, coffees at QT, & our cable bill. After that, my hubby and I decided we were up for the challenge. We agreed to no eating out, no taking money out for sodas or coffee or snacks and then looked at our bills to see what we could do without. We decided to call Dish Network and see if we could lower our bill somehow. We were able to save almost $30.00 a month just lowering the type of plan we had!!! So considering we just completed our first week, I am inpressed at how we're doing. As tempting as eating out was last week, we survived. I made dinner for our family each night, or we had leftovers. Mark & I also took lunches to work rather than eating out and we had lots of fun seeing what all we can save on. Well that is all I have to report at this time, but I will make sure to do updates every week for all to see......

Thanks for reading,
