I’m one week into my journey to get cheap. The first few days were almost.. fun. I know, never thought I’d say that.
It was full of tons of errands to multiple grocery stores, Walmart, and the dollar store. It felt awesome to know I had saved money because of these decisions.
Then the weekend came. And my kids had doctor appointments that led to medication costs, numerous times. Then we were late getting home, so we grabbed fast food along the way. And then the whole thing just fell apart.
I’m realizing that weekends are the hardest for being frugal. We are home less of the day, I’m less organized, and have nothing planned out ahead of time. I’m trying to get back on track now.
