We get most of our clothes from thrift stores and yard sales. Alot of our food comes from Save A Lot or Aldi's. On the rare occasion that we go out to dinner, we use coupons.I get my cleaning supplies from Dollar Tree or Dollar General.We haven't been on a real vacation in 3 years. Our vacation this year was visiting my family in SC last week, we had fun though! I homeschool, so I don't have to spend money on school clothes or gas driving them back and forth to school, or school lunches or fundraisers, pictures, etc. Most of my curriculum was either given to me, printed up free from the internet, or ordered used from ebay or amazon. Join your local freecycle group and you can get tons of stuff. Whatever you have to do to make it work, it's worth it! You can't put a price on the memory of your baby's first steps, or their first words.
