  • I would skip them, but then again, I've never attended a party where I felt I should do my hair and nails, so that may be much easier said than done. If you need to have an up-do or something, see if you can get a friend to do it for you.

    Also, you can buy kits to do your own French manicure for little cost. My left hand is pretty dumb about detail work, so from my experience, you may also want to ask a friend to help with that if you choose to take that route with your nails.

    Good luck getting to Florida! :-)

  • Your hair and nails you can do yourself so yes I'd cut them out. Also, daily coffee or anything like that I would cut out.

  • Don't buy anything you don't need. Use coupons and sales when you grocery shop. Set aside some money from each check for a vacation fund.

  • Yes, you would save money by cutting out those types of luxeries. Don't go get your hair dyed, or styled by an expensive salon. Don't get your nails done, don't go out and buy new outfits, etc. Cut back on magazine subscriptions, don't pay for cable/internet that you're not utilizing, etc.

  • I would cut out any fancy drinks do your own hair and nails and don't buy anything at all that you don't need for anyone.
