This year is all about saving money every day while trying to increase your income potential. If you did one thing each day that could save as little as $5 over the course of a year, you could have an extra $1800 in your pocket at the end of the year. Not all of these tips may apply to you, so to keep it fair, not all of them will apply to me.

Parfaits are actually really easy to make at home, and I like them for breakfast (and all my in-between snacks). You need:

  • Plain or vanilla yogurt
  • Fruit preserves, fresh fruit, or even defrosted fruit (mixed berries is yummy)
  • Granola

I get a small ziploc storage container and layer yogurt, fruit, yogurt, fruit, yogurt. Don’t put the granola on until you’re ready to eat it, otherwise it gets soggy.

Even McDonald’s sells their parfaits for $2; mine run about $1. It’s healthy, has live cultures for digestion, and I can even add protein powder to help with my exercise routine.

Enjoy!
