How I Save Money (With Minimal Effort)

I have a confession to make. I, your resident blogger here, am a Serial Clearance Shopper.

That's right. Odds are, my first (and usually only) stop when I shop is straight for the clearance racks. Unless there's something specific I need, but even then I always check the clearance racks before I even glance towards the full-priced sections. I get a thrill from saving money. I don't have this desire for the newest, trendiest things, and if I do want something new I will usually try to DIY it before I spend an absurd amount of money on something material.

In my years of thriftiness, I have found a pretty good collection of ways to save money, or earn points towards gift cards (all of which I have personally had success with!) Most of these require very little effort, and don't really make you have to change any of your usual habits in order to use them.

Food // Slow Cooker Ham and White Bean Soup

Some days I can plan a full meal, baking chicken, sautéing vegetables, and maybe even baking some fresh bread.

Other days (more often than not) I’m lazy as all get-out. On these days I have a choice: either make something quick and, most likely, not very healthy, or throw some stuff into the crock pot and let it go for a few hours. I prefer the latter option as often as possible. I decided to share one of my favorite slow cooker recipes with you!
