We're still plugging away on our spending freeze. I was tempted to buy some jeans from Goodwill yesterday but I put them back. I'm asking myself if I really need it or do I want it. Most of the time I just want things. I haven't found anything that I have needed to purchase during our spending freeze. We have cut way back on eating out, I've found if I stick to my menu plan I do much better on not wanting to eat out. I've also realized I need to make a few meals for the freezer for days I just don't want to cook.
We've started giving the kids an allowance every week...$.25 each... I know I'm cheap but if I make it too high we never have the money to pay them! Now they can save for what they want.
