In a panic over finances!

I have always had a good grasp on our finances, but for the first time ever...I'm not certain what other spending and wasting we can cut out. Due to the Economy, seriously, we are not doing so well lately. Yikes! We are having to "tighten our belts" way more than usual lately. I'll keep you posted on any additional ways we save money. For now, for us...it is just simply: "DON'T BUY WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE!!!!"

Have a great weekend!

Everybody I know is finding ways to save money. So far the biggest change I've made is drinking instant coffee at work instead of buying lattes at Starbucks. Laugh and shake your head if you must - but I'm saving $10.00 a day. And being from the "Land of Starbucks" you have no idea how much I have to defend my choice.

Dancing Monkey Jewelry: Go you! That is awesome about switching to instant and you are right...giving up luxuries like Starbucks will help yourself on the bottom line. Awesome job!

We have given up so much for so long, that I need to dig deep to cut out spending. Lately, I am just staying home and going nowhere if I can help it. Spending when you can't afford it is too tempting.
