Re: What was the thriftiest decision or change your family made?
I posted about this earlier today and thr big monthly bills weve cut back on.
I second what was said about minimalism. We just have fewer wants and enjoy simple things. We looked through the toys r us christmas catalogue, and there really wasnt anything we wantwd.
My other big one is freecycle and free craigslist. We have thousands of dollars worth of stuff we havent paid for. It completely changed my outlook on spending. Knowing which things pop up frequently, im just not willing to pay for many items anymore. Free stuff and minimalism has been the biggest thing for me to curtail spending. I just dont want the things i used to want.
