OK, how do you manage saving and be frugal when you are the only one on board? Spouse believes this is a good idea however is NOT a rule follower. Example: I stated too much money was wasted on junk foods, so what is purchased when he shops.....yep, junk food. I'm not a "couponer" because I buy wherever is cheapest which is usually like Dollar General, Family Dollar, Big Lots, etc. Also I buy generic. I used to try couponing but found it was cheaper to do generics. Only certain items are name brand.
I do watch for sale stuff, price per pound, etc. but can't seem to get anyone to understand you can't have money and blow it too.
Also, I can sit at home forever and he can't sit still to save his soul but must go-go-go! That, as I've explained, costs gas and gas costs money. So each time he starts the engine, there goes dollars.
I'm currently seeking outside employment because cost of living is going up up up
