love a good deal and savings and coupons but if you have to spend money
to save money you are never going to get ahead. If you have to spend 15 to
save 5 it is NOT a good deal.
Only use cash never charge. If you see the money going out of hand you are a lot more likely to ask your self do I need this. If it comes down to spending that dollar on junk or a loaf of bread for your family buy the bread!
Set a weekly spending limit. Budget how much you are going to spend on groceries and then try to beat your goal each week.
Go on a spending freeze other then essentials do not spend ANY money and no shoes are not essentials no matter how cute or a good deal.
Use up what you have in the fridge and pantry. Most of us could feed a third world country on what we already have at hand. Use up what you have before you buy more and get creative at meal time.
