Notable Notes:

A big thank you to all who called in and shared some great frugal tips! Here’s the compilation of money saving ideas:

-Kathy in Virginia: Shopping for groceries at Aldi, saved $100 per week!

-Mackenzie: move to reusable instead disposable – swap here and there if not able to make changes 100%

-Patty in Alberta Canada: Don’t go shopping! Not using shopping as entertainment can save loads of money! 

-Colleen: be prepared! Check your bag before leaving the house, make a list! Save yourself from last minute purchases!

-Kathryn from Arkansas: watching others declutter on youtube has provided motivation to do this herself! AND they used a balance transfer credit card to pay off debt in 21 months

-Natalie from Nova Scotia: found $40,000 in grandmothers name – heard the tip on our money hacks episode!
