Oh, the Unexpected Joys!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I squeal with delight because today I am launching my new e-book!

“The Unexpected Joys of a Tight Grocery Budget” has officially hit the Amazon shelves this week and I am oh-so-excited about that fact!  Not only does that make today’s post the official launch of the book, it means it’s my official launch as an AUTHOR.  :)  True, I am the author of this blog… but doesn’t a published e-book just make it seem so much more official?  I think so.

~

My new e-book talks about how reducing our grocery budget made us better people all around!  It also contains a section on how to resist slipping into "Victim Mode."

~

By the way, did you know you can totally write an e-book if you want to??  I’m going to make sure and elaborate about that process in my next installment of Blogging: Behind the Scenes (in case it’s something you think you might be into.)

But for those of you who are less interested in writing e-books and more interested in reading them, you can get your paws on mine in 1 of 2 ways:

 

1) It’s listed on Amazon for just $2.99!  (That’s because it is a short, motivational read.  But definitely one you’ll want to refer back to whenever you feel your attitude slipping.)

~

2) Even better option… I’m sending a FREE copy to all Pretty/Hungry© e-mail subscribers!  If you want to become a subscriber and get “The Unexpected Joys of a Tight Grocery Budget” for free, just let me know in the comments section below!  Easy as that. :)   If you are already a subscriber, just let me know in the comments section that you’d like me to send a free copy of the e-book your way, and it shall be done!

*A note about subscribing:
As a subscriber, you will receive e-mail updates of new Pretty/Hungry posts, which I publish an average of 2x per week.
Absolutely NO spammy yuckiness whatsoever!

For those of you who have been longtime readers, you know that Pretty/Hungry hasn’t always been the budget-savvy blog it is today.  I used to be a very poor planner when it came to our food spending.  (There were weeks I found myself going to the grocery store every single evening on my way home from work to pick up frozen pizzas & beer.)  Now, I’m not knocking frozen pizzas & beer (YUM!)… but it’s fairly obvious that that lifestyle was not doing us any favors in the health department OR in the financial department.

Thankfully, I snapped out of that silliness!  It took realizing that my long-term dreams (i.e. the dream house I’ve been constructing on Pinterest) were taking a backseat to my grocery-aisle whims.  But once that sunk it, I had no problem slicing & dicing up my grocery list and re-building my shopping habits from the ground up.  I expected to feel gratified by all the extra money we were saving (and I DID)… but what I didn’t expect were the zillions of little character-building bonuses that accompanied our new reduced food budget.

~

~

I was so delighted by all these unexpected joys that I wrote an e-book about them, and that e-book is what brings us here today.  Here’s a little descriptive preview of the book!

~~~

“Sure, we’d all love to see a few extra dollars in the bank account at the end of the month, but many of us lack the motivation to make that happen because it means making lifestyle sacrifices. This is especially true when it comes to grocery shopping. But the reality is that food & groceries are one of the top categories in which most U.S. families over-spend! The Unexpected Joys of a Tight Grocery Budget discusses the character-building effects that reducing your grocery budget has on you and your children. The rewards go far beyond the monetary! Exercising self-control at the supermarket increases our generosity, our gratitude, our creativity, our long-term vision, and so much more! Reducing your grocery budget is worthwhile even if you don’t ‘need’ to. In fact, I truly believe I would keep shopping the way I do even if we won the lottery. This book will explain why.” 

~~~

And HERE’S a review that a lovely reader wrote up about it on Amazon.  It made me smile (thank you, Eric & Jessica!) so I wanted to share it with you guys…

Amazon Review of "The Unexpected Joys of a Tight Grocery Budget"

~

There is really no better resolution you can make for your New Year than to be a better steward of your blessings (be they financial blessings, the physical blessing of good health, or the blessing of having loved ones in your life.)  We have choices with each of these blessings.  Will we be careless with them?  Or will we treat them like the treasures they are and be extra-diligent caretakers of them?

I hope you will commit (along with the rest of us!) to sit down and take stock as we enter 2014.  Take stock of your income, your debt, your goals, and your dreams.  Commit to making sacrifices that serve a greater purpose!  And please share your journey with the community of frugal readers here at Pretty/Hungry! (Hashtag-> #unexpectedjoys).  Nothing encourages me more during a tough week of budgeting than hearing from one of YOU about your own unexpected money-saving joys!

I sincerely hope this little e-book will help & inspire you along the way.

Blessings,

Carissa

    I subscribed, got the email, downloaded Kindle for android (Samsung tablet) but was unable to download ypur book. Thanks for trying!

    • Carissa says:

      So sorry, Judi! I wish I were more tech-savvy so I could help troubleshoot with ya.

      Do you perhaps have a cord (like a charge cord) that you can use to plug your Samsung tablet up to your computer? Then you could just drag/drop the file onto the device.

      That is my best guess. :( Hope it helps!

    • Carissa says:

      It is so very difficult to find joy in it. :( I think I’m able to grin and bear it because it’s my personal dream (building a house) on the line when I overspend… but you’re making even greater (and more admirable) sacrifices by spending less to honor your husband. I applaud that! You should have the book within 24 hours, I hope you enjoy it!

    Hello Carissa..
    I am a new subscriber from Kingwood,TX..I am a stay at home mom& wife with a New Years resolution to have yummy meals without breaking our monthly grocery budget.,My husband is a wonderful provider so that I can stay home with our princess who is turning 5 years old next month and has special needs: Aspergers( mild form of Autism)..
    I would truly love a copy of your new grocery budget book..Congrats on it!!

    • Carissa says:

      It’s totally possible, Lydia! There are some great meal ideas in the ‘budget’ section of this blog that won’t cost you a ton. However I know that some families choose alternative diets to help treat Autism and Aspergers, and I’m afraid I don’t have many gluten-free or dairy-free options here on the Pretty/Hungry blog (yet.) But I hope you enjoy the recipes you do find, and I very much hope you enjoy the book!

    As a subscriber, I would love to have a copy of your new book, The Unexpected Joys of a Tight Food Budget! I love reading your blog and especially trying your recipes! Can’t wait to try the white chicken lasagna recipe!

    Just want you to know that I am also praying for your dad and all your family! I’ve known your family for a long time. I used to live in Wichita and attended Elpyco CoC. Your mom was at HU (I had graduated HU a few years earlier) and I had your uncle Vic in my 2nd grade Sunday School class. Then in the late 80’s and early 90’s we attended Lafayette Church of Christ in St. Louis. Your mom and dad moved there and I had you in Bible class for 2 years, in the 2 yr. old class and then the next yr in the 2 1/2 yr. old class. You were soooo cute, but also a little shy! I was devastated when your mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and am so thankful that you have made the difficult medical decisions to reduce your risk. I can’t imagine how hard that has been! But what a blessing for your little daughter and husband! When my husband Kim and I moved from St Louis, Chris and Vicki hosted a very memorable going away party for us in your home. Your parents were both such precious Godly, God-loving, and God-seeking people! It’s obvious that you too have become such a Godly young woman. I know your dad is so proud of you and your mom would have been too!

    I’ve kept up with your family over the years. We had alot of mutual friends at Lafayette CoC, family and friends at East Sunshine CoC in Springfield, Downtown CoC and HU connections. The CoC and HU world has lots of connections, especially since we have/had 3 kids at HU too!

    I was so sad to hear the annc’t last Sunday in church about your dad. (We are back in St. Louis at Lafayette again. There was a loud audible gasp from the congregation when the annc’t was made!) My heart breaks for all of you! Thankfully, God holds the pieces of your heart in His hands and will be there to comfort and sustain you! Please know there are alot of heavy duty prayers going up to our Father in Heaven for your dad and for all of your family!!! And if God decides to call him home soon, his beautiful voice will join with your mom’s beautiful voice and those of the angels in praise to our LORD!!!

    Hi Carissa, I just happened to stumble upon your sight because I was looking to learn how to get away with grocery shopping on a $200 budget and I’ve been glued for at least 2 hours this morning I absolutely love your Pretty/Hungry sight and the parenting magazine one too. I also noticed you have an e- book for free . I would really appreciate one. I will read it of course and I’m sure it will be of good use. Thank you for sharing your money saving tips.
    Sincerely,
