How to be Thrifty

Thursday, October 9, 2008

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to share what I have learned over the past 6 months. The most important thing that I learned is that I don't have to give up anything! I still buy coffee and chocolate!

For me, it was baby steps. I started with coupons, and then sales. I watched the prices of the items I frequently purchased and then started buying in bulk when they were on sale. Don't be surprised when you open a closet in my house and you see stacks of oatmeal.

With the economy on the downhill everyone is providing information about becoming thrifty. If you missed the Oprah: The Thriftiest Family in America please check it out. They provide some good common sense information to get you started.
