Mama Bee's Tip of the Week - Feb. 20

Pack your lunch and bring your own coffee. It's plain and simple, friends - this saves money! I estimate my family saves $150 a month by using this frugal living strategy. That's $1,800 a year! When you look at it like that, the convenience of not so healthy fast food and an overpriced cuppa joe isn't nearly as attractive, is it? Think about how much you could save if you drove past that shiny coffee shop with a thermos of your favorite in hand, brown bag filled with homemade goodies waiting beside you for lunch! Don't just limit yourself to the workday either. Packing a picnic lunch on the weekends when you're with the whole family will save you a ton of money!
