Are you on a money diet?

If so, what are you doing and is it working for you? I am price matching my groceries.

  • We have stopped going out, we buy in bulk because it is usually cheaper in the long run and it lasts forever, and I cut coupons like crazy!

  • We do a lot of those things- we don't go out, we buy bulk, coupons, off-brands, turning off the lights when we're not in a room, being careful with the water, etc.

  • I am doing a LOT of coupons. I also cut back on things we don't NEED. I ask myself all the time "Can I live without this?" and if I can, I don't buy it.

    Using less electricity as well. Turning the AC off when we're not home. It's helping so far.

  • I guess you could say yes! We call it a budget and it's helped us in so many ways!

  • I'm starting to use coupons because our groceries are seriously $700 a month for 2 adults and 2 toddlers.

  • we started shopping at a store that gives us 30-40% off every time we shop for things we use on a daily basis. Switching stores was a great decision! (Msg. me if you'd like to know about the store)
