Frugalistas Frugalistas

Hi everybody. I am new here. A little about me. I am a SAHM of 3. DD1 is 6, DD2 will be 5 this month, and DS is 20 mos. My hubby works very hard to support us so I do not have to work (I am homeschooling. as well).  We are currently remodeling our house, and have some financial commitments that we are tied into. So, I am really trying to cut back on our monthly budget.  I cook all our meals at home. We go out to eat MAYBE 2x a month. All the kids clothes I either make or buy secondhand (except for special occasions like Easter, Christmas, and birthday).  I know that most of you have other suggestions, so fire away!  :-)
