LOVE IT!!! I have found that it IS the little things that cause us to over-spend. You don't think much about them at the time, but they add up so quickly!!

2009-09-23T18:08:47.624-07:00

This is good stuff. I am going to come back and reread it (maybe again and again) when I don't have my little ones interrupting me. Thanks for making me think!

Great post, Nan! I try to stay out of stores and also delete those store emails that come in my inbox. :D

Ouch...you stepped on my toes! lol! Really, Jason and I have been talking about alot of these very things and trying to be much wiser in the "little things". Great post!

Have a great day!

There are so many unimportant things in which we spend money... I cut down with very bad spending habits (such as coffee and little treats) and now I live better and more frugal

Darcy! love the envelope system! we have to be frugal on one income and do manage but it can be sooooo hard especially when you need new clothes etc.
Love Collette xx

OH BOY do you have my number!!!! I was doing so well a few months ago, but I've gone back to my "spending ways!" and need to get back to frugal A.S.A.P.- thanks for reminding me!!

2009-09-22T18:12:06.135-07:00

Great post, Nan. I needed it. I want to get back to using our envelope system where we keep cash in envelopes for our food, gas, and other things that we need cash for throughout the month. You have strengthened my resolve to do it!

2009-09-22T17:06:45.562-07:00

Ok, this is my idea of being frugal today. Somehow I managed to get a big ol' CREDIT on my Belks card! So instead of letting them enjoy my money in their bank, I decided to use up the credit today. I bought two pairs of really cute dress shoes, a sport coat for my hubby, two dress shirts for him, a new night gown for me, AND A NEW ROBE (since everyone in our county likes to pop in on me!).

I used to be frugal but become a missionary and it will cut most of that out :) Thinking that someone is sacrificing for our support helps finding a reason why I don´t need something. :)

Thanks for the reminders...

2009-09-22T15:10:51.296-07:00

These are some great tips and if we just take that small amount we wanted to spend and put it in a jar instead, in a months time you would see how much you have saved instead of where did all the money go?

Label me guilty of most of the items you have listed.

Yep, we are pretty frugal here... it helps that we don't smoke, drink or go clubbing...

With being in school and now for me working late...there are times when eating out is such a treat. My hubby is great with Dave Ramsey's method of budgeting...so we can see where the money is going, even before we actually spend it.

Ah..Taco Bell... I remember one anniversary, in Hawaii, when I was pregnant with our youngest and our girls were 3 and 6... it was a Taco Bell night out :o)

Our movie night often is a video from the library's shelves...and although some of the picks were pretty slim...I would on occasion find a good one! haha

Thanks for great reminders!

Blessings & Aloha!

2009-09-22T14:15:57.576-07:00

When I needed to cut back and save money, I stopped going to the mall and bookstores, and I threw away the endless catalogs that keep coming in the mail instead of browsing through them. It's amazing how much I saved! : )

2009-09-22T14:03:49.273-07:00

Okay Nan, you're convicting me....

My frugal self has been being really good lately, so hopefully you'll help me KEEP on being GOOD! =0)

2009-09-22T13:54:09.589-07:00

It's always good to be reminded where we could make cuts(big and small), just how many things we justifiy, when if we take a closer look...we can just live without. Thanks for making me thing twice...and thanks for the tip on syrup the other day.

2009-09-22T13:41:49.155-07:00

I noticed people a lot more when we moved here and had our FL house payment until it sold. The only way to make it was so limit our grocery budget to $300 a month (for 7 people!) I seriously was cooking rice and beans and limiting meat and bulking with grains. I would notice other people who asked for prayer b/c they were in debt would go to eat every Sunday after church. They got manicures. One thought she deserved a massage! Our budget included our tithe, mortgage in FL, rent in AL, utilities, food, and gas. No clothing, no entertainment, no household items, no ball. My kids earned church camp money by working at church. We went to Sams for the samples. We went to every church festival for entertainment. We took advantage of free entertainment in all the nearby towns. I had people over a lot and instead of doing all the meal I would let them bring dessert or something. I would do a big pot of soup or chili or red beans and rice. No one knew we were struggling so badly.We didn't announce we couldn't go out to eat b/c of money- we would say that we had something at home already. Most of us have a closet of clothes. We used the library. Really, we found ways to enjoy life without so much money.

Thank you for this post. I need to be more careful, too!

Well said: "When you have cut down as far as you can, or think you can, then that's when you may want to start looking at your buying and spending habits. That's when you have to look at why you spend your money the way you do. That's when you need to get your frugal on!"

Good post!

2009-09-22T10:14:59.970-07:00

I find the best way I get my frugal on is to STAY OUT OF STORES! Ha! My "latte-factor" definitely is the "good deal" that I can't pass up. I shop second-stores much more than I do regular retail, and you just don't know what you might find...;)
