Where Can I Serve You First?
At True Money Saver, my goal is to immediately help you save money (by reducing your food costs), then I’ll get you on track to better manage your money (by setting up a realistic budget), and then you’ll learn how to take those savings even deeper (by saving on EVERYthing you buy) so that you can live in abundance (and pay off any debt).
“Groceries” are not just the food you buy. It should include EVERYTHING you purchase at the grocery store (or Walmart/Target). That includes cleaning supplies, paper products, health & beauty items, and of course your food, too. There are simple ways to save on all of it (without using coupons, or sacrificing quality).
This is when things get fun. It’s time to take advantage of the “low hanging fruit” by reducing spending on every single thing you buy… this is beyond the grocery store. Ways to save on Starbucks, movie tickets, household appliances, a vacation to Disney, and even a new car. Managing your money is the key to have more of it.
Once you know the strategies to save on your expenses, and you’re successfully managing your money, now it’s time to dig deeper and conquer the debt. It doesn’t matter if it’s student loans, credit cards, cars, or your mortgage. We’re gonna defeat it once and for all, and make sure it NEVER comes back.
It’s time to focus
on your financial goals.
For years I’d set lofty goals every month that never moved the needle in our finances. Things like “pay off debt” and “spend less on groceries” and while I had good intentions, I was missing the point: my goals were not specific enough to measure progress each day. So month after month I’d write the same goals down… hoping that one day, I’d actually accomplish them. Then one day I discovered I just needed to rewrite my goals, in smaller increments. Aha! That was the key. Smaller goals, broken down into even smaller daily steps so I could make intentional progress on them. Finally, things started to move in the right direction. And now I’m a goal-setting fool! I set goals all the time (and reach them too!). You deserve to reach your goals as well. These free sheets will help you do that.

The Cash Flow Formula
We’d make great friends!
I help busy, over-exhausted moms, maximize their money so they can pay off debt and take fun family vacations without feeling guilty (or using credit cards).

Before the pandemic, we took our family of 6 to Disney World every month… just because we want to make memories with them. (They grow up far too quickly!!)
