Evening Lovelies! I am sitting here, listening to the rain and working on my book. While doing all of this, I got to thinking about all you lovelies and the support you give me day in and day out. It truly means the world to me and I cannot say it enough. I will never be able to truly express how thankful I am for all of you and your support here on the blog. You make me smile every single day! I really want your presence in this book, since it is all of you who will be reading it and who have inspired me to write it in the first place. So now I need your help. I want to have reader's questions throughout the book, where I will have answers as well. I need to know what frugal questions do you want answered throughout the book. The book will cover topics from grocery shopping, meal planning, freezer cooking, buying second hand, thrift shopping, vacationing on a budget, eating out on a budget, creating a budget, etc. Let me know your questions, so I can include them in the book! Oh and if you have any other random questions for me, silly or not, share away. They may make it to the book as well! Thanks always for your support. You rock!

XO Danielle

  1. What are your thoughts on vehicles?? Older and just for repairs as you go? Or newer, reasonable car payment and fewer repair bills? If you go older, how much monthly would you suggest putting aside for repairs? Thanks.

    1. What a great question!! I'm going through that right now. I've leased vehicles for the past 5 years (not too smart I know), but am planning to just stick to one used car now while hubby and I save up a bit for baby #3 that's on the way. We definitely need two cars, but since I will be out on maternity leave in December, I figured I can suck it up for now, return my lease since the contract is up, and take two trains to work for a few months. It will add another 30 minutes to my commute, but it will be nice not having that car payment each month and I can afford to make a few repairs that my other car needs.

  2. How do you do gift giving to non- relatives in a way that isn't cheap? My biggest challenges are baby and wedding showers for couples at church. While I typically don't know them well, I want to bless them and be a part of celebrating their joyous occasion, but what to give that doesn't blow my budget, but they would like and/or use? Most of the time, looking at their registry is no help, as it is full of items over my budget. Many thanks! Best wishes on your book!!

  3. I was wondering how you keep your frugality muscles flexing when you are tired, busy or sick/injured?

  4. I don't have an exact question, but I will tell you...I really, REALLY struggle with organizational skills. Not sure if you've covered this on your blog or not, maybe some guest posts. Maybe others---but I know me for certain---could use some tips for all of these recipes (for food and cleaning) and articles, etc. that I print out. Yeah, I think that's my weakness, paper and other junk doesn't have a home. Of course, it's not only me contributing to the piles of junk, but I definitely have a hand in it!! Maybe binders? I'm not crafty or creative, so I may need to just use binders to unclutter. Thanks, Danielle and Jason for everything!!

  5. How do you satisfy your teen/tween's desire to have brand name items when you're on a tight budget?
    How do you take care of last-minute items frugally? Like you're suddenly out of sunscreen or you've been invited last-minute to a baby shower?

  6. Saving for retirement. What are your thoughts? Also staying frugal and caring for elderly family members (parents, grandparents).

  7. Here are some of my questions- How do you keep kids involved in activities with a small budget? How do you deal with gifts when children are invited to lots of birthday parties? Do you agree with saving for childrens post secondary education from early on or not?

  8. Where do you shop for the lovely accessories that we see you wearing in photos on your website?

  9. I have a question about money your child receives on their birthday. I made a deal with my daughter that she could use $10 out of the $50 she got to buy whatever she wanted. The rest went to buying new school clothes. We went to Walmart and she bought a bunch of little things. Do you have any other suggestions? I really want her to start learning about budgeting so I had her do her own math in figuring out what she could buy.

  10. Saving for college. Extra curricular activities for homeschoolers.

  11. I'm really inspired by how you live your life, but I would also like to know what the downsides or sacrifices are for your family. Money doesn't buy happiness, but I think it's important to be realistic about the pros and cons of every lifestyle. For example, what do you do if your kids want to play a team sport or learn to play the violin? How much have you been able to prepare financially for the future -- retirement, college, an emergency fund? What kind of downsides are there, health or variety wise, when you only grocery shop once a month and on such a small budge, too? And as for homeschooling, how do you make sure that your kids are up to speed with age-appropriate milestones? Thanks, and I'm looking forward to reading your book!

  13. My question to you is - how do you budget your time? In a typical day? Typical week?

  14. Do you give your kids an allowance? If so, how do you encourage them to spend it wisely and/or save it? If not, how do you handle something that the kids really want? Like a toy?

  15. I would love to see a section on wedding planning on a small budget/frugal wedding planning tips and ideas, including maybe talking about how you did yours? I need some ideas!
