I have always struggled with my finances and not having to live paycheck to paycheck. I have been going through a yearly cycle of having to pay off a high balance on one credit card. DH became unemployed Feb 25 this year, so I really have to make good changes to my spending habits. I don't belong to a gym, because i have 2 dogs i play with and walk daily. i go for walks at the nature center ($50/yr for family membership), i get videos from the public library for free.
I ? if i "need" or "want" something. a want has to wait at least 1 week before i can consider purchasing it, especially since I have a tendency to find things in my home that has already been purchased and is the very thing i was "wanting".
I borrow everything i can from the public library (books, dvd, cd, etc), so i don't have to buy them unless ABSOLUTELY necessary.
I would never talk to my BFF the way I talk to myself about my body.
