Anyone with me on making the year 2014 the YEAR OF FRUGAL/SIMPLE LIVING?

Not necessarily cheap living but frugal/simple living.  Yes I do think there can be a difference between the two.  Cheap can mean, not always, but can mean buying based on price alone and not always caring about the quality.  Now on some things cheap is good.  For example, some generic grocery items are just as good if not better than the name brands.  Cheap workmanship is not so good. 
Although my savings account is better than it was this time last year, it is sorely lacking and I'd really love to have it multiply by the end of 2014.  I was reading a new blog I just found, midlifemommusings.com and she noted when she finally got serious about paying down their debt her husband got a bonus to pay it down. 
I will need loads of self discipline, will power and prayer to be able to do this.  I sure won't be able to do this on my own. 

Also as a question to you blogger specialists:  How do you get the bars to show up on your blog?  You know the bars that show progress?

Thanks!!
Lee Ann

  3. Hi Lee Ann,
    Thanks for the 'plug'. I'll be right there with you as we try to pay for college and contribute to our retirement. It's all about saving in 2014!
