Lately my husband and I have been talking about a house...not just any house but our dream house... one that we could own. We don't make a lot of money. We don't have a lot of debt. However, we have little savings and some things that do need paid off. We need to be super frugal to achieve our goal. I need to constantly ask myself...do we need this or want this? Most of our money goes to buy things we want, not need. I hate to think of how much money we've wasted over the years.
I'm trying to kick off our September spending freeze with a list of things that make me feel frugal...here they are...
Hanging my laundry
Using cloth diapers and wipes
Making a pizza from scratch
Driving past Wendy's after a long day and coming home to cook
Avoiding the grocery store for two weeks
Using only two bags of trash a week for a family of seven!
Buying in bulk
Not looking at the ads in the newspapers
Driving past Goodwill and yard sales!!!
