We are failry fortunate that we haven’t had to do alot
of tighting but I am starting a garden this year. Had
to buy a cultivator though (cheaper than renting it
and I needed to have for several projects). I did buy
seeds and a starter kit (it works out for me because I
don’t have luck with pots and plants. I sorta have a
black thumb sometimes). I removed soda from our house.
I go to whole sale clubs to buy stuff we really use. I
order my medications via the internet (from our
insurance company) and get a month’s free for doing
it. I order the printer ink cartridges on line so I
pay 1/2 or less of what the store charges.
I walk my dogs and use the exercise equipment I bought
a long time ago instead of joining a gym.
We bought our son an enexpensive car to drive back and
forth to school so I am not makeing 4 trips a day and
his car has much better gas milage than mine does.
We go to the library to rent cd’s instead of buying
them. We use on-demand (I have a really good bundle
deal for my area on phone, internet and cable) to
watch movies (not the pay ones the free ones). When we
go out for dinner it is usually when I have been sick
or running two or three of us to the dr that day.
We do have a land line but that is for overseas calls.
We have cell phones that are all conected together. I
use a family plan to include my mother to call. My son
has his girlfriend on his.
Our biggest bill (besides mortgage) is food. It is
very expensive here where I live. It wouldn’t take
much to spend 300 per week on groceries (some has to
do with health issues but for the most part it’s
expensive). I do go to Save-a-lot for my canned goods
and I get my meat at Sams when possible. The rest I
have to use area chain stores. I stay away from
Walmart (can’t go in without dropping 80-100 no matter
what I do).
We also only go out for dinner on tuesday, wednesday
or thursday. (makes it more enjoyable for us.
That’s all I can think of for now
