Years ago, I interviewed Crystal Paine about her blog, Money Saving Mom. She’s spun an impressive career out of diligence, goals she set and achieved.
What struck me was Crystal’s intentional behavior—setting goals, breaking them down into manageable pieces, and ultimately achieving far more than she’d ever imagined. If I remember correctly, she helped her husband pay for law school, debt-free, and save enough to pay cash for their first home—no mortgage! It’s amazing what can be done when you set goals—big, small, personal, spiritual, practical, adventurous.
I recommend starting small, building on success. There’s a blog post on Money Saving Mom about targeting savings and reaching a financial goal in a clever, fairly painless way: “Don’t Spend your $5 Bills.” Super quick and worth a read!
On that note, do you have a money saving tip to share? If so, do share! Leave your tip below and you’ll be entered into a giveaway for Lorilee Craker’s Money Secrets of the Amish.
