  • We haven't really. We cut back to basics a few years ago, so there wasn't anything TO cut out. But, I started working after being a sahm for 6 years, then we found out DH's pay was being cut in half - my earnings were the same as DH's had been, so we're bringing in the same pay plus half - all we're doing is being able to pay off some bills so far, we don't spend any differently, any "extra" is going into savings.

  • We just stopped buy crap we don't need. I won't lie. We came into a very large sum of money from my father's life insurances. We paid off our debt, bought new cars, new mattresses for us and the kids, etc. Now that we have bought all we have needed to buy, we save. I have absolutely no urge to run out and buy some overtly expensive gadget just because I can. Despite having the money we have now, I still live like I did when we were barely getting by.

  • I haven't. In fact our income just doubled, we increased our spending accordingly.
