Trying to spend less!!!

December 16th, 2008 at 03:35 pm

It's been 4 days since I challenged myself not to buy any food from fast food joints. I realized that I'm spending way too much money eating out, not just buying for the kids but also for me. I'm allowing one day for eating out, probably on Friday. I'm also not buying any meat in my attempts to empty out both the deep freezer and the house freezer.

Picked up my son's Christmas present, still have to buy a stereo system for my oldest (he has one, but is falling apart and he is big on music). Need to buy quite a few blockbuster cards for nieces an nephews. I'll make a goodie bag with a bag of microwave popcorn, movie theater candy (which I'll buy at Walmart)and a $5.00 blockbuster card. Do you think this a good idea? I'm also making a bookmarks (idea posted by a fellow blogger)for the readers in the family.

    Dollar stores are great for the movie size candy too. Neat idea with the movie package!

    Yes...movie package is a great idea! I did this one year for a couple families...they got $10 gift cards, popcorn and packet of hot chocolate. Good job on the spending less!!

    I have a problem with dining out as well, the days I don't I add $2 to my challenge. I think it's great that you are cutting back and I agree the movie gift is great

    I quit eating fast food because I knew I shouldn't eat it, and made it a personal challenge...now when I "cheat" I start gagging as the food is in my mouth. The texture, the taste, it all grosses me out. Saves a lot of money that way!!
