5 Easy Ways to Save Money and Eat Healthier!

  1. Stop buying microwave food! The prices are astronomical. With the same money you could make not only more, healthier, meals at home.
  2. Do not buy more food than you can use or store. Throwing away food gone bade food is the same as throwing away money.
  3. Use a slow cooker for easy, cheap, and healthy meals. Cook steamed vegetables, baked beans, pulled pork, roast beef and more. You will have lunches and meals for the week with one cook.
  4. Stop buying bottled water: Use a glass or plastic bottle that can be reused. Not only will you contribute to the planet, you will also stop spending money unnecessarily. As a bonus, lots of water fountains now have spaces to refill bottles just like this so you don’t have to awkwardly try to fill your bottle.
  5. Take your lunch to work: You’ll stop spending half of your budget for lunch if you start cooking it. And to point #4, make sure to get good quality reusable containers you can wash at home.

 

 

Save money and time by batch cooking!

How much time do you spend per week cooking? How much of your life passes you by while you wait in line at McDonald’s for your ‘fast food’? How much money do you spend per week eating out? If you want to learn how to save money and time on food… batch cooking may be the answer. I’ve been batch cooking or doing some form of meal prep for the entire week ever since I was in college. Batch cooking has helped me tremendously and still continues to be a lifesaver for my health, my time, and my wallet. Supplies and recipes at the bottom.

Batch cooking is preparing most or all of your meals and snacks for the entire week or month on 1 day out of the week. What works with your schedule and storage capacity. If you have a large family, you’re probably already familiar with some level of batch cooking. That doesn’t mean you can’t expand or that batch cooking is useless if you live alone or with your partner.

You can either prepare a whole meal… or you can prepare all the components of one meal to keep things fresh throughout the week.

Nutrition Stripped recommends cooking foods dry and adding sauces, dressings, or seasonings later to avoid making them soggy.

Busy Busy Busy! Passive Income Experiment in the meantime.

The past few weeks have been so busy. 😦 Right now, my current team is shipping it’s first major release of our software and I’ve had to work many long hours which have kept me away from… well life. And we’re still not through to the end of it, we have at least another month or so to go until we’re finished. But after we’re done, there will probably be a lull for a week or so. Then there will be a new big push for some 6 month plan. After that another week’s lull, and then another push. It’s a vicious cycle. That’s why I have my eyes set on getting out of the 9-5 as soon as possible.

As few weeks ago, I reported that I achieved a goal of $3 per day passive income across a month from a site I had built. Sine I was expecting may to be busy, I decided to stop pay attention to it altogether and only check once a week. I also decided not to attempt to advertise it anywhere for at least a month, maybe two. My goal is to see how quickly the income dissipates without upkeep. By no means does one website qualify as a proper study… but since I am extra busy at the moment I figured why not. Let’s see what happens. I am still make about $1.50 a day this second month.

Not bad. Not thrilling. But not bad.

I am also planning to finish the second, larger site before the end of the month.

My book is doing alright so far. It’s only sold about twenty copies, or about two a week. No reviews yet. It didn’t start selling until I lowered the price to $3 from $5, which is interesting to note. Overall it’s made just under $30. I’m actually working on two other books right now. Both on Marijuana, one is a general beginners guide and the other is a detailed how to guide on making your own weed butter. I have an amazing secret recipe I have been refining for the past few years. I don’t make it frequently anymore so I’m ready to share it with the world. 🙂
