Don't spend on frivolous things.

Same :(
Even our tax return is completely spoken for and it's gonna be stretching to get everything done that we need to. We have to get some duct work done on our house, get dh a truck, pay off hospital bills, pay back some debt to my Mom from when she helped us with part of those same medical bills when they first happened, find a fix a leak in our basement, and then HOPEFULLY have enough left over to finally (after living here almost 3 years) clear some shrubbery and level a little piece of yard so our kids finally have at least a small area to play outside.

Quoting Anonymous 2:

Honestly i dont. I wish i could. BUT we live paycheck to paycheck including the two times a year we get an extra check, it all goes to our basic needs. :(   I know it wont be like this forever, but it is now :(

We live below our means in an apt that barely suits our needs. It's a large one bedroom with the large walk-in closet turned into a bedroom for ds. We put a Dutch door on it so he is never "shut in" the closet. It's a bit cramped but our rent is only 14% of our income.

I don't spend anything.  I think twice before I spend money, to be honest.  It isn't easy but worth it

We don't live above our means. We pay cash for just about everything.
