I read this book about saving money a while back and it recommended an occasional money 'fast', only spending on essentials. We're going to try it for the month of July with no trips to Walmart or any other department store, no Amazon.com, no Micheal's crafts or Lowes. Only groceries and gas. I will still pay for the kids to go skating and swimming as they are not very expensive and I do feel like we need to get out and enjoy the summer somewhat. We don't have our own pool up yet, but after it is up, we will cut out the trips to the city pool.
Note to self: Remember to pick up adequate supplies of chocolate at the grocery store, because if you buy it at the grocery store, it's just part of the regular food bill and does not count. ;-P
