Halcyon Posted August 25, 2012 Share Posted August 25, 2012 Dh's business is going through one of its periodic downswings, and we need to really not spend a lot of money. My first thought, which DH hates, is to leave the cc at home and just use cash.. It is inconvenient (gas, groceries) but i think t will help us be more careful. Second thing, write down everything we spend money on as a way of monitoring and self-checking. I am going to sub to an online meal plan so as to be more careful with or grocery budget. I am putting off some purxhases which come close to being needs but are really not. (new pool vac as ours is broken, new beds for the boys as their's are just mattreses and very uncomfortable, starting a small veggie garden) How to do tighten your belt?
