Give yourself a raise!

One of the benefits of working at home especially with your own business is that you can give yourself a raise when you need one.

This doesn't really mean that you automatically start making more money but since you are at home you have more control over what and how you spend the money you do make.

Of course you always take on new projects to increase your income but you can also do some things that will greatly stretch the money you already have.

One of the ways I have been stretching those dollars is by couponing.  Over the last six weeks I've been able to spend around just $50 a week for groceries.  Prior to that I was easily spending over $125 a week.   That's an instant $300 a month extra!

I've started a new lens on Squidoo on how to effectively use coupons and get some great deals and even eat better! 

Take a look and get started.  I will be adding more to it but it already gives you a great way to start.  http://www.squidoo.com/getfrugal
