Ways to try and save $$$ this month

1. Reduce cell phone minutes. (only make long calls on the weekend)

2. Eat everything in the kitchen. The canned foods, the frozen foods and the 5,000 granola bars. Bonus: less to move at the end of the month

3. Pay a teensy, tiny, itty, bitty less on debt


5. Do not go to Target, thrift shopping or to fabric stores, under any circumstances

6. Have friends over rather than going out

7. Make gifts for any special occasions coming up. (including the card)

8. Buy cheaper coffee

9. Try not to drive anywhere outside of the city

10. Try to only spend $50/ week on groceries

11. Begin operation do not spend a dime until 9/9/09.

We need to save some money this month so I came up with this list of ideas. We have A LOT of expenses coming up such as moving and school and car payments. I also do not get paid from my job until Oct 1st so I have another 28 days to go. I think we can do it though. I feel pretty good about finding ways to cut down on expenses. I've already purchased enough shampoo, conditioner, face wash and toilet paper to last until March of next year. We are so covered, thanks Costco.

It will be an adventure to say the least and someday when we're lounging in our gold plated mansion we'll look back and laugh and laugh.
