Ok, this is my first post ever for you guys, but i had to chime in. i read stuff
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
the issue comes in $. IT is small aka no walmart etc. We have 2 franchises
Giant Eagle. The Mellons that own Mellon bank kinda run the town that way so
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
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
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
bill thing, that is what kills me. i love natural/organic food too. i just need
that is what i get out of budget 101 and you all. 🙂
