      Ok, this is my first post ever for you guys, but i had to chime in. i read stuff

      everyday and

      just sit quietly. just wanted to say hi and that’s great that you instilled in

      them good frugal

      habits;-) that is what i’m struggling with! i’m bridget from a small lil town in

      pa, i’m 25

      and live at home but pursuing my masters. Honestly I want to stay in my lil

      town. However

      the issue comes in $. IT is small aka no walmart etc. We have 2 franchises

      Subway and

      Giant Eagle. The Mellons that own Mellon bank kinda run the town that way so

      that it

      keeps the lil town flavor. The joke is that anyone that lives here doesn’t

      really shop here.

      The prices are all jacked up high usually. I only shop sales or for a special

      occasion or

      deal. I try to be frugal but I stink at it. I have expensive taste and was

      raised as an only

      child (to some spoiled, but never a brat) i knew that i was blessed. however, i

      was not

      taught how to manage money hardly at all. i am a coupon cutter, deal finder, and

      if i order

      something it is normally on clearance or sale or i have deals to get freebies

      with it. i just

      love to find out deals and freebies and thrive on that. i am working on the

      whole grocery

      bill thing, that is what kills me. i love natural/organic food too. i just need

      guidance and

      that is what i get out of budget 101 and you all. 🙂
