Time for another thrifty week post.
Sometimes, it's not about what you do.
Sometimes it's about what you don't do...
or do rarely.
We don't have a big fancy house.
We don't have a second car.
We don't have a car payment.
We don't go shopping for fun.
We don't have any credit cards.
We don't go out to movies.*
We don't buy the latest electronic gadgets.
We don't have cable, or any other t.v.
We don't have long-distance on our home phone.
I rarely buy books for me.*
I rarely pay new clothes for the kids
except undies, shoes, socks, and my son's jeans.
We rarely take our whole family out for dinner.
We rarely go to the doctor.
So many of the things that I do that are thrifty are simply second nature.
I've lived this way for so many years, I don't even think about it anymore for the most part.
What kinds of things are second nature to you?
