I am saving even more money by removing temptations from my daily grind. I do not go to the mall just to hang out. I am now meeting my girlfriends for coffee at either my house or their house. When those fabulous catalogs come in the mail from Victoria's Secret and Lands End.... I use them as fire starters. I do not even open them or glance at the pages. When we get the Sunday paper.... I only look at the weekly grocery ads, and of course the coupons. I throw the ads to Fred Meyer, Target, and Best Buy into my paper bin for fire starter. I have a new philosophy with impulse shopping, as well as just shopping in general or shopping for a past time. I do not believe in retail therapy. I feel that if I do not see it, I will not miss it. The other conclusion that I have come to is..... every time I leave my house it costs money, at the very least it will cost the gas to drive somewhere.
Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!!
