Living Frugal

I have to admit things are tight at our house and am searching for more corners to cut. Would love to hear what others are doing nowadays.

Thinking Christmas

Not sure about all of you but Christmas is on my mind. It will be a slim one for us this year for sure. I am thinking more practical and useful things than just junk.

Here is a good deal I think if you are thinking about getting a Wii for Christmas. Thanks Coupon Frugal Living

Feeling Blessed

The last week and a half has been pretty hot for being so early in season. I can't help but feel blessed over the pool I snagged at the end of the season last year. I paid $9.99 for a pretty big pool with filter think it's 20x30.

Check anywhere and everywhere at the end of the season for pools, pool toys and chemicals. I usually pay 75% OFF every year. There is no way I could afford to just go buy it full price.

I suppose the clothing would have to get thrown into this post too. Since that really is the best way to shop. I try buying all the anticipated sizes of the boys winter needs for the next year at about 75% OFF too. I 3 in 1 winter coats for next winter for I think $15 each.

Not trying to brag but just bring to mind that a little planning can never hurt the budget. Especially in the times we are in now!

Just when I think I have read it all on being frugal, I came across a forum topic where the mom of 14 fed her family on $500 a month! I didn't have all the time to read the full details but some things that stood out.

1. Not much junk!
2. One meatless supper a week
3. Not much junk! lol

Not sure where you are on your food budget but I know mine HAS to be cut or there will be trouble soon :-) I have had good luck matching coupons against store coupons, Aldi's and stockpiling.

Would love to hear your ideas. But whatever you do...don't give up. All the little savings add up in the end.
