As long as paying for already ordered customs doesn't count then I'm in. It looks like we might be moving next summer and I need to start saving money NOW. We may need the money for a down payment (YAY!) or overseas moving (also YAY!). I need someone to make me behave myself!

Oh goody! This thread actually helped me sit down and look at Septembers budget. I have been ruthless! We have to pay $930 to a hospital bill this month, so I had to make that possible. I had to cut a lot out and slash my grocery budget.

Give me strength!

I did pretty well today. I didn't buy anything online even though I had a rough day and really wanted to indulge in some retail therapy. I used coupons and only got what we needed at the store. I put a few things up on craigslist, too.

Whoo hooo Mama. OMG isn't it hard to not buy anything on here. I didn't realize I had such a problem ...I never by much big stuff but the little stuff sure does add up. It's hard though especially all the yummy newborn fluffiness!!
