What is something you have given up recently because you just didn't have the money?

We were planning on taking our kids to see a play, but MIL called and we are making her house payment again so now no money for tickets.

  • I cut back on lots, starbucks, I got the stuff to give myself manicures (for the cost of 2 I got all the stuff) I switched makeup to a cheaper version. But i'm not sure it has helped much but we get to do more fun things as a family like game night and basball in the back yard, go to the park. I do really miss starbuck though lol

  • Movie Theater trips! I just can't bring myself to spend that much money to sit in a theater, also because I can't do it without popcorn and soda. That's about $30.00 right there! Ugh!

  • Clothing lol. I just had a baby almost 3 months ago and I gained 56 pounds. I still have about 15 pounds to lose to fit into my old clothes (which are worn out and really should be thrown away anyway). I wear a lot of dresses, skirts and some of my maternity clothes still. I can't justify spending a bunch of money for clothes that I will be too skinny for shortly.
