CHA Items...

What is a girl to do when she is on a strict scrap budget and pretty soon... all those lovely new items from CHA will be arriving in the MS Store? (pssst... Teresa Collins is already there! Go look!!)
Well, here are a few ways to save some extra $$ and pad the budget a bit...

1. Walk to work!
Yes, I know there may be highways involved, but think of all the tin cans you can collect on the way too... Cha Ching!
2. Buy store brand foods!
What? you say. Store brand? For my picky eaters?
Yep! Just keep the Fruity Pebbles box, and pour the store brand "fruit flavored rocky bites" in. I bet they will never even notice! Cha-ching!
3. Have a yard sale!
Now, I realize some of us live in cooler climates, but I think if you can shovel the snow out of the driveway you should go for it! Plus, you can have your kids sell hot chocolate and charge them overhead fees... Cha-Ching.

I also think it is interesting to note that "CHA-ching" starts with the letters C-H-A... coincidence? I think not!
So get your budgeting self on and keep watching for those new goodies!
