Just to catch up- still slugging away at that debt whore! The Hubs and I decided to switch to a debt avalanche instead of a debt snowball. So we are now flinging money at the debt with the highest interest rate: fucking visa! lol
This list will get bigger but for now here are some of my favorite books, websites, finance blogs, apps, and other shit!!!
Mr Money Mustache. Fuck ya this guy is amaze-balls! He and his wifey retired in their early 30’s and are cruising pretty! His articles are always interesting and informative. Love that stache! And he’s Canadian so it makes him even more awesome!
Budgets Are Sexy This guy is a goldmine!! So much info and just an all around good resource! Plus he drives the Franken- Caddy and its fucking hilarious lol. He also has another site called Rockstar Finance that’s financial shit he finds from all over the internetz! He has cool hair too.
Frugalwoods Well these people are cute as hell. I wanna pinch their cheeks. Their little family is comprised of Mr and Mrs Frugalwoods, Babywoods, and Frugalhound. (Who always has the most darling outfits on!) I’m totally jealous of these assholes (I mean that in a loving way of course!) They have my dream property. Continue reading →
My Main Tank (Hubs) and I kicked the shit out of spring cleaning at the Potty Mouth residence last Caturday (Saturday.) Holy fuck did that suck but it was so rewarding to see our home all sparkly and puurdy!!! Potty Mouth Pooch supervised cause she’s so good at that! We also had our first Potty Mouth family financial meeting!! We did the budget together!! I even sat on my hands and let the hubs input the numbers into our budget app- Everydollar. It was great and since we worked so hard me and the hubs treated ourselves to a growler of craft saison beer (I ❤ Beer), homemade pizza, and Red Box!!! (We set money aside for entertainment purposes- you can be frugal and have fun on the cheap: Growler $23, Movie $1.99)
The recipe I used for the pizza crust is from Leanne Brown’s Good and Cheap. I used the long version and made the dough the night before. It tastes better that way IMO. I also make it with whole wheat flour- its good for the bod! I made a margherita pizza because they are my fav!!! Hubby made chicken fajita thin crust and a cheese and bacon Sicilian style pizza.

Just because you are being thrifty doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice healthy nutritious food. Me and the Hubs are total foodies and we have the extra cushion for the pushin to prove it. We are both trying to lose weight and be healthy so we can live long and happy lives together (I know- *barf lol) and we want to do it without breaking the bank!
I know ramen noodles are super f*cking yummy and only cost like $2 for a pack of 12 (dammit) but they are soooo bad for you. Though I could eat those bad boys for days….. We are trying to eliminate naughty foods from our grocery budget so those f*ckers got kicked off the list. Also my husband has refrained from buying slim jims as of late cause those Continue reading →
