OK, Cupcake, here’s why — are you interested in saving money? S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G your hard-earned dollars? Living a great life without breaking the budget — AND doing it without feeling like a penny-pinching miser? I thought so. Who doesn’t!
Maybe you’re a whole lot like me. We live on a budget and to tell you the truth, sometimes it’s tough because the money just doesn’t go as far as it used to. Seems like everything keeps going up. It just flat costs more to live. We’re trying to pay off a bunch of credit cards. (Maybe you are too). Keep the car running. Pay the mortgage. Put a little aside for a rainy day. Sound familiar?
Well, we cut down and cut out and then cut down and cut out some more — know what I mean? Trouble is, after a while we started feeling kinda deprived living on a shoestring budget. I figured there HAD to be a way to live a healthy, enjoyable, sustainable lifestyle without:
1) being rich
2) winning the lottery
3) pinching pennies ’til they screamed
4) depriving yourself and your family of those “little extras”

Have I got your attention now? Good!
I’ve made it my mission to ferret out terrific, little-known ways to save a buck or two (sometimes Big Bucks!) so you can live a rich life, even when you don’t have boatloads of money. And it’s not all about clipping coupons, eating beans and rice without the rice, or riding your bike to work. Now, before any one gets her knickers in a knot, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with coupons. They’re great. So is riding your bike, if that’s what you want to do. All I’m saying is there are tons of other ways to cut down on your expenses too.
So what’s with the tiara, the glitzy frames, and feather boas? Like I said, Cupcake, you gotta have a little fun in life. Sure, saving money is serious business but we only get to go around once. Might as well make the trip a whole lot of fun while we’re here!
So, stick around, Dahlink. Let’s save some cash and have a few giggles along the way.
