Frugality…

pigLet’s just face it… I suck at being frugal. I do really really great, then things come up, like important things(summertime pedicures) and such, and I just HAVE to spend money.

pedicure

I decided to start couponing. That lasted one whole trip. I saved $36 and spent $120… not my best shopping trip, not my worst. I also decided to make my own bath salts and scrubs instead of splurging on them at the store. I can make them much much cheaper that I can buy them, still, here I am with no sugar scrub simply because I ran out and have not made any. I even have the stuff! Sheesh, someone should tell this girl she is L-A-Z-Y she aint got no alibi she LAZY!

lazySo here is my conclusion to my attempt at being frugal. I suck at it. I work, I clean, I cook, I help at church, I do a lot of things, and making a ton of changes all at once isn’t my forte. I am looking at making a major change later in the year where I will hopefully have more time to make more changes to help save more money so I can go get that pedicure without cringing at prices 😉 …. I will not give up my summer pedicures… Winter doesn’t matter, they are covered up anyways!

    Being frugal feels like a full time job! I’ve just started challenging myself to save as much as possible, and it’s HARD! I feel your pain 🙂

    • You are completely right on! It does feel like a full time job. I think if i take baby steps I might be able to make it work 🙂 I will be using some of your great tips from your blog to make it happen! Thank you!

  2. Such an honest post. I completely relate! Being constantly frugal is a lot of work. Especially if you have expensive taste, which I’ve been told in the past that I have. I think you have the right strategy going in taking baby steps, rather than trying to overhaul every aspect of your life at once to make it frugal. The journey to frugality should be just that…a journey, with successes and bumps along the way. Good luck!
