Welcome to Saving Famously!
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Angelica and I’m so happy that you are here.
Saving Famously originally began a few years ago as a coupon blog site. I teamed up with my mom, Lucy, to help spread the word on coupons and saving. She has been an avid saver since I was a child and her love of saving has continued to grow over the years. She enjoys sharing deals in hopes that everyone can spend less while getting more because…why should you pay more money if you don’t have to.
Just like the song Beautiful Boy by John Lennon says, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”, that is exactly what happened to us. Life happened, we got busy and over the past several months, unfortunately we have not been able to keep up with the coupon deals here. It’s not because we didn’t want to but rather because our time was occupied in other areas. In addition to managing Saving Famously, I work a regular full time 40 hour+ week job and I have family obligations just like most other people. Lots of other unexpected surprises popped up too and it generally wasn’t the good kind of surprise either. I was juggling too many balls in the air and needed a break.
During this time, I’ve stepped back and have been reflecting on life. I’ve assessed where I have been and where I want to be in the future. One area that is prominent and reoccurring is gaining financial stability by paying off all debt. It’s an area that I have pursued in the past, sometimes mildly successful and other times I failed. I’ve tried different methods such as Dave Ramsey, YNAB, Mint and more but it usually fizzled out after a few months. I know those tools are helpful to millions of people around the world and I come across success stories all the time but…it just wasn’t right for me.
I have become very passionate about budgeting and creating my path to financial abundance. I’ve done lots of research and am currently using a modified structure. In just 3 months, I paid off $4,700 in debt! I have not been able to achieve this before so it’s very encouraging for me to continue. Even though I’m still in the process of paying off debt, I want to share what I’m doing because it may be helpful to other people. I hope to enlighten you so that you can save too!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you visit again! Talk to you soon!
