How I Saved in March

Saving is easier said than done. Trust me, I get it. A lot of the lessons I’ve learned are from trail and error trust me. It hasn’t always been easy. However, once a created a routine and sticked to my budget. It has made it a lot easier for me. Below, I'm sharing ways I saved in the month of March.


In March I attended the ALT Summit and cut cost I had a roomie. This saved me 50% off my hotel bill because I was able to share the cost. Everything worked out on my end. My roomie was super sweet and due to our busy schedules we barely seen each other.


During my travels I had a luggage malfunction. Due to purchasing from a company with a great warranty. I didn’t have an added unexpected purchase and new luggage set. Had a purchased from a random store and/or site. I would have had to purchase a new set during my trip (Always purchase quality items)


Due to my busy schedule this month. I didn’t have the time to shop at Target which allowed me to save money. Target always has the cutest stuff. Trust me, I get it. Target is my mommy therapy. Though, I have gotten better at not just buying stuff. Being so busy in March really helped me cut down my Target expenses.


I saved a ton by applying for a Airlines rewards credit card. Not only was I able to get priority boarding and a free checked bag. Which I would have had to purchase separately. I also earned points for my flight purchase. This is only a benefit if you plan to pay your credit card bill on time and NOT have a recurring balance.


I was able to cash in on a free Starbucks gift card by scanning my receipts. This allows me to treat myself to my favorite beverage guilt free.

Zero Budget

My family uses a zero budget which saves us a ton. Are money is never telling us where to go. We’re always telling it where to go.

Did you save in March? How so?
