One day after grocery shopping I was unpleasantly surprised at how much money I was spending on groceries. I decided to change this, and set out to find ways to save money. There are a ton of ways to save and I successfully brought down my overall expenses.
It was great, I saved money, but then I realized that while I was saving money, I was also using a lot of my time in the process. If you already use coupons, shopping apps or other tools to save money when shopping for grocery or clothes, then you know what I mean! I takes a lot of time to prepare for a money saving shopping trip. What good was it to save money if I didn’t have the time to do the things I enjoy? So I focused on learning different ways and techniques to not only save money, but save time as well.
It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle of daily life. Going to work, going to school, driving, traffic, keeping up with social media, keeping up with the news… The list is endless. For me, the central theme of ‘Savings’ isn’t just about money. It is also about saving time. Saving with the goal of having a better quality of life. Whether it is saving time cooking, shopping, cleaning, etc., my purpose is to enjoy my time while living. This results in having time to do the things that bring me joy – like spending time with family, a hobby, helping others. I figure that one way to help others is through sharing what I do to be more efficient in ‘Saving’. Thus, the purpose of SavingwithTaLis.com.
