10 Ways to Save some Money

I found this on
and I figured I would share it with you.

Frugality is a way of thinking that can change our way of living.

When times are hard it can be depressing for some;
but I believe that the way we think can determine our attitude
and eventually our lifestyles.

That living a frugal and pure life requires us to be
poor in spirit and in possessions is so far from the truth.

We CAN live a fabulous frugal life if we begin with our thoughts.

Here are some ways I'm thinking outside the box to save money for our family!

  1. Instead of buying a new book, see if your local library has it!

  2. If you still have a land line, call your server provider and ask them to go over your plan with you, chances are you are paying for things you don't use or need. You'd be surprised at the savings!

  3. Shop at the 99 Cent store! It can be a gold mine if you have the time to search it out!

  4. Organize. Organize. Organize. When there's a place for everything, you're less likely to run out and buy "X" because you know you have extra. Example: Wrapping paper, Birthday Bags and Tissue.

  5. Create a spending plan that allows for occasional eating out, pedicure, new shoes, etc. This is a must even if you're on a tight budget, it will help you feel normal and your urges to splurge will be less since you reward yourself on a regular (or semi regular) basis.

  6. Drink more tea. Not only do you get more anti-oxidants, but it's cheaper at Starbucks!

  7. Learn how to cook! Sounds cliche?! It isn't, check out the cookbooks at your local library and have at it! You're saving money, being healthier and gaining a new skill - it's a win-win!

  8. Plan ahead. This goes for everything: vacations, grocery shopping, play dates!

  9. Leave non-perishable food in the car for snacks. When you and the kids are running around doing errands, you're less likely to stop in at the gas station and buy food. We rotate between goldfish, teddy grams, even cereal, pour in a gallon size zip lock bag!

  10. When doing your grocery shopping look high and low (literally), the most expensive items are right at eye level, in fact they pay to be there. So the cheaper food is either on the top or bottom shelf!

NJ Family Cares Free Health Insurance

NJ Family Cares Free Health Insurance for your children 18 and younger if you qualify (NJ only)

Most of the individual states have a program such as this to help ensure children get appropriate health care even if their parents are out of work or cannot afford to pay for insurance. I hope this helps someone!

Who is eligible for NJ FamilyCare?
Children 18 and younger may apply for the program, as well as certain low-income parents.
The income eligibility level for children's coverage is 350% of the federal poverty level. For example, children in a family of four with a monthly income of up to $6,432 could be eligible for coverage. For parents, the income eligibility level is 200% of the federal poverty level, or $3,675 for a family of four.

Eligibility is based on family size and monthly income. Family size includes children under 21, adoptive and natural parents and their spouses. If a child is living in a household with a grandparent, guardian, or caretaker, that person is not included in the family size, and their income is not taken into consideration when calculating eligibility for NJ FamilyCare, unless the guardian is also requesting coverage.

Only monthly income, not assets, is considered for eligibility.
To view income eligibility limits for various family sizes, go to Income Eligibility and Cost. The blue line shows the maximum income (annual and monthly) that families of various sizes can have in order to be eligible to apply for parent coverage. The bottom line of the chart shows the maximum income for coverage for children.

What if my family makes too much money to qualify for NJ FamilyCare?
Parents at higher income levels can purchase health insurance for their children at reasonable rates through the NJ FamilyCare ADVANTAGE program administered by Horizon NJ Health if they qualify. The cost is $143 per month for one child; $286 per month for two children; and $429 per month for three or more children. To learn more, please visit or call 1-800-637-2997.

Other insurance?
Applicants will be eligible for NJ FamilyCare only if they have been uninsured for a period of three months or more. However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as if you lost your insurance because your place of work went out of business or you were laid off. Depending on income, other exceptions may apply for families privately paying for health insurance or for COBRA benefits. Call 1-800-701-0710 and speak with a Health Benefits Coordinator to find out if any exceptions apply to you.

Premiums, co-payments?
For many families, NJ FamilyCare will be free. Other families will pay a monthly premium based on their income and small co-payments for some services.To view premiums, go to What It Costs.

How do I apply?
It is easy! Download an application from this website, or apply online, or call toll-free 1-800-701-0710 to request an application or to receive more information. If you are not sure you or your children could be eligible, please call us.

I have been reading other frugal bloggers discussions and most of them stockpile. It made me think of this idea. There are many companies that give you supplies to throw a party. (Loreal house party, Ritz food house party, swiffer house party, etc)

Why not use your stock piles to throw a party for free. These parties are great ways to try out new products. You could throw a Maybelline party and bring out a sample of a few Maybelline items. Each person can try out the products. To make this party more fun you can raffle for a free Maybelline item of the persons choice from your Maybelline stock pile.

Or you can choose to compare different company eyeliners, mascara, eye shadows, even crackers or cheeses. There is no limit to how creative you can get with this party.

The total cost of the party is whatever you paid for these items. Also, for those who stockpile, the snacks for the party can be from your stockpile making your party, almost free.

Expired coupons

Alley at

I found a site where you can send your expired coupons to military families overseas! They are able to use expired coupons overseas for 6 months after the expiration date! I know that all I do is throw mine away, but from now on, I'll be sending them to the military families. This is a very easy thing to do, it costs the price of a stamp. The link is listed below:

Here is a site where yon can see if the government owes you money. There are many of dollars that go wasted every year because people didn't know the government owed it to them.

Check to see if you are owed money. If you are owed money, it talks you through how to claim your money. Also, while you are there check to see if anyone in your family is owed money. They will appreciate it if you find them a few dollars that they didn't know was owed to them. Of course you can't claim the money for them. Enjoy!!


Here is another low budget and EASY meal for two with leftovers :-D

lentils and Rice

- 1/2 cup of brown lentils
- 1 cup of uncooked rice of your choice
- 1/2 a medium onion or 1 small onion
- seasonings of your choice
- 3 cups of water


1. Put water in a pot
2. add a pinch of salt
3. Once water starts boiling, add lentils
4. Cook until lentils are soft
5. Flavor lentils and water ( I use curry powder, salt, and pepper)
5. Remove lentils from water
6. Save water for use in a few minutes
7. Put lentils in a pot (or same pot if you like)
8. Add Rice
9. Fill pot with lentil water until liquid is just above rice
10. Cook until water evaporates
11. Once food is done get a frying pan
12. Put a little vegetable oil
13. saute onions in the oil until turn golden brown
14. Put rice and lentils in a nice dish
15. Top dish with the onions, or serve on the side

Total cost is roughly around $3.00

The rice and lentils can be eaten by itself or with plain yogurt.
