...I haven't heard as many tips as I hoped. So if you still have some, let's hear them. My friend Kim sent me a great website last night (while her son was having a vomiting marathon no less) called: moneysavingmom.com It looks cool. There is a lot to go through, but I want to share it with you all in case it can be beneficial to you.
I was/am worried that you might be thinking, "I have a solution--quit going on trips!" Well two of the three trips I took this summer were paid for. The trip that Thad and I took was saved for, and to be honest, well worth it. It does stink that we have to shell out a decent chunk of money for a sitter for five nights, but what do you do?
Our next big family trip gives me 20 months to pay off. If I can't, we won't go. I have two free flights right now, a bunch of Disney points I have/am acquired/ing, and so I am really trying to get the most bang for my buck.
For me the biggest challenge is to try and not hit Target so frequently. If I need detergent, I end up buying much more. Thad pointed out that it's not him who is buying crap, even though he relies on my to buy most everything....
