I'm not nearly as frugal as I could be, probably not even half, but I feel like it's time to start changing that. I know everyone is talking about the bad economy right now, but honestly we have not really been affected by it. Sure our health insurance costs a little more this year, and our copays did go up, but Sean still has his job, and he didn't take a pay cut this year, so we are really doing ok. Even though we have been so lucky, I'm beginning to realize how stupid I've been by not doing a little extra work to save a lot of money. Groceries are getting more and more expensive, and as the kids get older they are eating more as well, so I think it's time for me to get off my lazy butt and do more to save on everything. This could prove to be interesting since I've never done it, but I'm ready to commit if it means cutting our grocery bills in half. I'll be sure to post an update on how successful, or not, I am with this. I plan to do lots of online coupon hunting, so if anyone has any tips or websites to share I'd love them.
