  • When money was tight for us we cut off cable tv and internet. We owned only one car. We bought milk and cheese in bulk when it was on sale and froze it. We would buy other things in bulk when they were on sale, like toilet paper, paper towels, canned food, etc. We clipped coupons and rarely went out to eat. We made ourselves a budget and only allowed a certain amount of money to be spend on unnecessary things each month. I baby sat on the side when I was working full time for the extra cash. We never let food go to waste. We bought clothes at the thrift store.
