Frugal Friday’s Travel and Transportation Tips
* Park It: Gas is really expensive in LA, so if you live somewhere like me where you can spend your lunch money every week on gas,; trying taking a day or two to walk to work or take the bus if your job isn’t too far. Uber also offers a ride pass for $25 a month which locks in low fares and can get you around for less than a full tank ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Slim down your Insurance: Most companies offer discounts if you bundle your insurances. Call your provider to see if you are eligible for any driving discounts for a clean record or if you can get some extra savings by bundling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Flight shopping: Skyscanner has analyzed historic data to determine that if you’re looking to book domestic flights in 2019, August 2019 will be the cheapest month to book, followed by September and December. Based on historical data, booking in August can save you as much as 4% off the average yearly flight price. Avoid booking flights in June, where prices can be up to 4% more on average.

Happy #WaterfallWednesday and a Happy Early 4th of July! Hoping y’all get to enjoy it outdoors.
Let’s talk snacks. A favourite go-to for weekend and evening snacks are potato chips.
Potato chips are delicious, crunchy, salty and everyone loves them! However, they offer next to no nutrition and the fried oils make it inflammatory and can cause damage to your heart, joints and brain. The combination of fats, carbs and salt can make them addictive (formulated this way on purpose), meaning it’s easy to eat much more than we should in one serving.
A satisfying alternative (that can also save you money) is popcorn! Buy kernels and pop them yourself. You could use an air popper, pop them on the stove with coconut oil, or place them in a paper bag and toss them in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. ( I don’t recommend buying microwave popcorn, as there are many additives and unhealthy fats used, and you won’t be better off then you were eating chips.) Popcorn is full of fibre, a whole food and you can control the quality of oil you use and add sea salt, which contains beneficial minerals, unlike refined table salt used on potato chips.
Again, the cost of healthy eating should not be a deterrent to make better choices in your diet. Progress over perfection.
While many healthy and organic foods can cost more, I’m a huge believer that many healthy swaps are actually money saving!
Stay tuned every Friday while I share tips on how to save money and make healthier choices.
Praise the Lord Saints! I just paid off 2 credit cards this month... Currently feeling all type of emotions. Broke is definitely one of them (yes, broke is an emotion)😂 but mostly grateful for the means to attack this debt and stick to my Financial Peace goals. Thinking about starting a YouTube channel to document the struggle of becoming disciplined and content (I’m still not completely there yet). Anywho, let’s thank God for the day He has made and the blessings (non tangible and tangible) which have flowed and are flowing into our lives!! Thank ya Jesus🙌🏾🙌🏾 #financialfreedom
