Before we started budgeting we were spending upwards of $600 on going out to eat each month! Anyways, I now do meal plans for like three weeks at a time and they make it so much easier to fight the urge to go out. I know what I...

WTG Jamie !!!!!!!!!! Paying off Greenbriar apartments 1140.00 today with Dh bonus money !!!!!!!!!!! Now we are trying to decide if we should save for door replacment (for heating cost) or pay towards another cc .
We are thinking about selling our portable DVD player . We sold a refridgarator that was left here when we moved here .
Chiro and haircuts come out of household budget IF there is money for them if there is not then they come out of fun cash . (Witch by the way we have none ! ) Dh get a 20 bonus for being at work ontime all month he is saving the money up for something speical at the end of the yr and it was never money that I even thought about . But other then that there is no fun money so these thigns for us have to come out of household items .

Now, I don't like Ragu. So, I don't clip those coupons. No matter how cheap it is, we like homemade sauce. ...
