When you first started to save money, did you give anything up?


We stopped going out to eat and to the movies as much.

We cut back on take out, but we didn't do it all that often anyway. I also stopped impulse shopping.

We NEVER go out anyway. I just pretty much try to use coupons for what I already buy so that I don't fool myself into thinking I saved money lol.

Starbucks, constant takeout, lowered cell phone and cable bills, and started doing more thrift store shopping.

I used to buy myself wayyy too many clothes, shoes and purses...new. I hardly ever do that anymore. I don't miss it, I can't believe I wasted all that money!!!!

Our big thing was all the times we would eat out or go out and to the movies or something. We spent a lot of money on that.

Stopped eating out so much, cancelled our cable, and I only buy clothes/shoes for myself when I receive gift cards or I absolutely NEED something, not just for the heck of it.
