- When payday come and the cash is taken for groceries, go grocery shopping FIRST! No Target or little spending here and there. Use the money for what its for - food!
- Don't run to the store because you saw a great deal online. Sleep on it.
- Plan transactions at CVS/Rite Aid for best out of pocket expense. Going in blind can make you spend more than you wanted.
- Quit swiping the debt card without talk to the co-owner of the account about the purchase.
- Plan only a week at a time of meals and spend only the amount you have for a week's time. This way you have money for milk or McD's in the future.

I'm really good at spending all my money before the end of the month (that country song, To Much Month at the End of the Money, is my theme). So when these final days come, I find myself returning items for some extra cash or just swiping my debit card and hope my husband doesn't ask about that previous budgeted amount I went over on again.
Kara at www.practicalsaver.com recently sent out an email about my dilmea! Read on:
Andrea sent me several questions - one of here difficulties is meal planning. She plans for 2 weeks of meals at a time, but is finding herself out of money to go back and get the milk or items that she wants to stock up on during the next sale period.
Here is my opinion:
I have never been a fan of 2 week meal plans, for the same reason you described, you will still need more items as 'life happens' and you don't know if a better sale is coming in the next sale ads. I suggest making a 1 week meal plan. I do usually 4 days at a time. By the end of the 4 days, I will be needing milk or something, and that will allow me to possibly go to a different store to get what is on sale there.
We get paid every 2 weeks as well, once you get into the routine, it is quite simple to divide 1/2 your budget and spread it out. And don't worry if you spend over half one week, just don't leave it dry for the milk and extras you need to pick up.

Yesterday my kids and I went to the berry farm and they had the cutest country store (add to list of weaknesses: Target, country stores). I love all the decorations and cute sayings. Well, there were a ton of them. I walked through once and that's it. My friend Tammy and I will be back out in September so my plan is to shop then. But the old me (before a week ago), would have purchased the couple of items she saw and then would try to sneak those receipts into the checkbook log. But, I didn't. Am I proud? Yes. Am I happy? Not really - they were really cute and I know where I want them in my house! But this is the purpose of this journey - to learn more self control.
So, today I have nothing planned. Just a lazy day home with the kids. I do love being a stay at home mom and homemaker for this reason. I don't need to get dressed, be somewhere, and be gone from my kids all day. The SAHM and homemaker is a 24 hour job that I wish I could take a break from sometimes but I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I went to talk with only 20 minutes to spare so this help me 'wondering' around. They didn't have Pampers Baby Wipes on sale for $1.97 so that was a no go. Went and got the juice boxes on sale and a box of candy for the theater (we saw Toy Story 3 - SO SO good).
Later that day I went grocery shopping. Sticking to my list until the items were completely free after coupons, went awesome! It was $50 before coupons, and only $25 out of pocket for groceries until 6/30. I went through my pantry and deep freezer to figure out meals so we can spend less this month.
So its going pretty good! I have a strong urge to go to the local grocery store that doubles $1 coupon to see what I can get free but I'll hold off. That is where I can get into trouble too. Getting alot of things for under $1 actually added up. So I would have a pantry full of stuff that I really didn't need and spent the money I just should have saved. I know $.10 toothpaste was only $.10 but when I can get it free - why pay it!
This is where I think to myself - I'll donate it! And then I donate so much, I don't donate wisely. Meaning - I spend cash on items that I didn't need to donate when I needed to hold onto the cash for other items. When I wouldn't hold onto the cash, I would be going to my hubby within 5 days of payday asking for money because we were out of food. So I wasn't shopping in a good way. That is why I'm on this fast and teaching myself to shop again.
I will continue to donate items but at this time, I'm going to watch what I spend and see how I can share without going hungry myself.

- Toy Clean Out - We have a huge kids consignment sale coming up in Bellefonte (www.justkidsresale.com) so as I clean out toy bins I'm even more motivated to get rid of toys that my children never played with or honestly annoy me. Year around I have a rubbermaid bin in each kid's closet for this purchase - to place unwanted/unused toys along with clothing they have outgrown or didn't fit well. Once that bin gets full, I go through and sell what is nice and donate everything else.
- Pantry Clean Out - As you start to coupon, you build up a stock pile of items. I frequently go through my pantry to check for outdated items (trashed), over stocked items (donate), and just to reorganize. It helps me to see what I have alot of so next time when its not free, I don't need to spend my pennies on that time right now.
- Appliance Clean Out - As I was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets, I found 3 coffee makers. My hubby needs his coffee daily and in the past 11 years, I have learned that a back up is always a good idea when the current one decides to explode some AM. But 3 is a little to much. So I have cleaned it up and I plan on taking it to my mom's group to give to someone who could use it.

- Check your last receipt to see that point level you are at. See if you are close to the next level to make a small purchase before making your HUGE purchase for big savings!
- Use your free coupons! Pull those FREE coupons and use them for this purchase! You will receive a percentage off for the item you will get FREE after coupon! I did this with Hanover Bean coupons I had been saving. I made .30 off each one.
- Have the cashier ring up your items first, then give her your Club Card, and then ask to redeem your rewards before your coupons! You will receive a percentage off of your purchase price before coupons! I got $7.00 off (add 10% discount) today and only paid $38 due to this method.

It is truly remarkable just how accurate this is!
1) Pick your favorite number between 1 and 8
2) Multiply your choice by 3
3) Add 3
4) Multiply again by 3
5) You'll get a 2 digit number......maybe 42, for example
6) Add the digits together. Example 4 and 2 = 6
Now Scroll down.
With that number, see who your ROLE MODEL is from the list below:
1. Albert Einstein
2. Oprah Winfrey
3. Mother Theresa
