Another place that has been feeling the budget cuts is the toilet paper category. We are a family of seven and were very accustomed to fluffy soft expensive toilet paper--BUT we were flying through the rolls of toilet paper. It seemed like I was replacing a roll every single day. We were wasting all of that soft cushy toilet paper! One day (I'm sure it was because Ecb's were involved!) I bought what we refer to as John Wayne toilet paper ( it's rough, tough, and doesn't take any crap off anybody!!) otherwise known as Scott's toilet paper. It was a miracle of sorts! Suddenly one roll of toilet paper is lasting a week or more. It seems like it's the never ending roll of toilet paper. Our toilet paper budget has now shrunk to only $10 a month compared to $20 or more. I know to some that measly little $10 isn't worth it but at our house a 50lb bag of chicken feed is $10 so this cut has really helped!
Have you had to make any painful budget cuts lately?
