Frugal, food growing mama to my four loves
HELP! I bring my lunch, but I don't bring something to drink because I'm trying to not drink soda. Then I end up breaking down and buying soda on my badge and loosing at both games. What's the best way to stop this? Tea? Maybe invest in a "special bottle". I figure I spent $30 last month. Any solution that will cost less than that is a win, right?
Hi, I'm Carrie.....SAHM to 3, all age 4 and under.
I already do a good job of not spending much at all. So I just want this little bit of extra support/encouragement to stop spending the little I do.
My goals are to save more money....but it's really not the money I'm interested in. It's my husbands time that I want. If I spend less, he can work less. Also, I want to end my part in America's consumerism.
I plan to do this buy shopping for handmade items when I do shop and I will buy at resale shops for family clothing.
I won't cut money out of our groceries. We eat well and I won't budge on that...I did start shopping at an organic co op that has great prices though so I'm hoping that does save us some money.

Hi Carrie! Welcome! It sounds like you have some pretty cool goals, totally different way of thinking!
I'm looking seriously at the compact - not sure how hard/easy it will be in Wyoming though.
