Household Management: Running an efficient, clean and happy household :)

Keeping the house running smoothly is a work in process. Some days it seems easier then others. I have found the best way to stay on top of things is to find a system that works and do a little every day.

On garbage day I clean the fridge and empty the trash.

To  manage the budget and look after the finances (I was a finance major after all), I keep it automated, uncomplicated, and check in frequently.

Since staying home, I am always looking for ways to stretch the budget such as, 8 ways to save money by planning for the expected49 ways to save money on groceries & food, and using couponing to save a ton.
