Frugal Living Friday: Discipline!

Welcome to Frugal Living Friday! Each week I will feature a tip that can help us stretch our budget and live more frugally! If you have a tip that you want shared on Frugal Living Friday, let me know and you could become a guest blogger for a day.

Today's topic is quick. I have a sick 2 year old who is throwing up and I have a ton of laundry to do, so not a lot of time to write today! Here is my tip:

Try to go for one week without spending money on those "extras." Ask yourself if you really need that pop, those snacks at Target while shopping, or splurging on extras at the store. Those extra $$$ spent add up over time. See how much money you can save this week!

I have found that when we are less discriminating about the snacks and special treats I save more money. I buy cookies and pop tarts when they are on sale and I have coupons making them super cheap or almost free. I don't worry about the brand on stuff like that.

You are preaching right to me! I just paid the bills yesterday and I was NOT happy at how high our credit card bill was. That has really got me to think about my spending for this month and I am looking at the frivolous spending I have done. I will be saving lots of money I know it! :)
