I am still in the process of decluttering and find it hard at times because I thought I didn't have any attachments to stuff but I kind of do. So half the battle is letting stuff go....thankfully I'm not talking about
piles and boxes of things. Its more like counter clutter and the kiddos old schoolwork...do we really need to keep every single vocabulary test?
On the spending front....I'm doing better on not eating out with the kids and cooking dinner at home. What I need to work on is planning my gift buying. Our family is big on birthdays! I have 7 brothers and sisters and countless nieces and nephews so at least once a month a birthday present is needed. Of course, if I'm not prepared I do the mad dash to the store for a gift card which in the long run is more expensive. So, I am going to try and work on that.
Off to crunch some numbers!
