Lately, I've been thinking about ways for my family to save money, for several reasons. The first one being that at some point, Doug's unemployment is going to run out and since he's now getting his tuition & other school expenses paid for by VocRehab, we'd really like for him to finish school. Another reason is my uncertain job future. The third reason is when Doug finishes school and finds a job, we'd like to add a new member to our family and I'd like to able to stay home with the kids. Although, more likely, I'll work part-time.
So I'm reading this book and am finding some useful tips. I discovered the author also has a blog, that I'll have to look at as well. Still, this is not the be all/end all book of frugality for me. There's got to be a happy medium between giving up our Starbucks habit (which we don't even have) and making our own soap! Just so you know, we've cut way back on going out to eat (but probably still do it far too often) and plan to get rid of cable in June when our special promotion is up. We also already use the library. :) If your family has a particularly good money saving tip, leave us a comment!
