Share your best advice for living on a budget and stretching your dollars.
For every mile I run, I set a $1 aside. Then I get to buy something I really want. I purchased a new purse. Now I am saving for a pair of Hunter Wellington Boots (and they are going to fit!)
I received Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover for a wedding gift last year. Since we have paid off several thousands of dollars in debt!
Avoid impulse buying. Before you purchase something ask yourself if this is something you need or just want. If it is a want than forgo the purchase until a later date to see if you still want it. Search for a coupon and get the cheapest price. Impulse buying adds up.
Treat your dollar bills like your spare change. At the end of the day take your singles and put them in a piggy bank. You will be surprised at how fast they add up I then deposit mine in the bank at the end of every month.
