Ok so I am SO SICK AND TIRED of not being able to LIVE LIFE.... I have a wonderful husband and two of the most amazing little boys I know. ( yes I am partial ) But I hate that we like many Americans live paycheck to paycheck. I mean WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO... we make good money. So then why do we? BECAUSE LIKE MOST AMERICANS WE OVER SPEND....
SO I have decided to make a change and this is GOING to happen. WE ARE GOING TO LIVE FRUGAL.
I am starting by saying NO MORE EATING OUT. ( which is not a biggie. I mean when was the last time you ate out for less than 30 and had an actual GOOD meal? )
I am having the cable SHUT OFF ( who needs to sit around and watch TV all day? )
having our house phone SHUT off. I mean I use my cell 99% of the time anyways.
Eating simple meals and PLANNING THEM AHEAD and ONLY shopping for the meals. NO MORE SPLURGES.
I am putting this into effect immediately. I am setting up a Marble Rewards system for my boys and I am HOPING to start giving them allowance and TEACHING THEM TO SPEND AND SAFE WISELY...
SO I am going to post as many FRUGAL idea's as I can find and I encourage you all to post the ones you use on here as well. I am hoping that together we can help one another out.
in the words of Spock.
LIVE LONG AND FRUGAL!!!
