What I wanted to do and what I did do...

Being frugal is different for everyone. For some it means eating beans all the time for others it means buying a used car instead of a new one.

I don't believe you can realistically go from one extreme to the other and be happy about it. For example you can't go from flying first class to going on a gray hound bus! Its about stepping down a level, not jumping off the bridge.

I've been dying for ice-cream all week. I craved Dairy Queen -mmm peanuts, banana, with hot fudge. The cost for us, a family of 4 to go to Dairy Queen could be as much as $15. Instead, I took a level down and bought a box of drumsticks on sale at the local Piggly Wiggly. Cost $2.98

I believe that if you take baby steps the challenge of becoming a frugal person will have a higher rate of success.

Have you stepped down a level this week?
