I've been looking more into living frugal. I grew up with my parents using food stamps and showing at Goodwill so I am use to using cheaper items. I actually prefer cheaper food brands unless it is meat. My husband's mom spoiled him with the high pricey stuff but he will have to get out of that habit.
One problem I've found is that since I moved to NY with my husband since his family is up here is there isn't a Goodwill store around here or even any good yard sales. I love going to them. Some of my best childhood toys were from going to them.
I do look for deals and the cheaper places to buy stuff that I need. I try to buy groceries when they are on sale and get the larger amount if it is something that we use all the time. The stores around here don't really have any coupons even if I look online for them.
Right now my husband plans on building a house this year which luckily his dad owns the land and owes him money so we will get it cheap. We are going to try and build most of it ourselves to save on money. I also plan on trying for a baby either next month or the month after. I've been putting it off till I knew we were going to move out and don't want to wait any longer since I just turned 28.
Once I become pregnant I plan on doing some yard sale shopping which should be easy since that is mostly what people have for sale around here. If I can't find what I need at them I'll ebay shop for clothing lots. My mother and sister can get me items from the Goodwill near them and ship it to me. I have to go down to IL this August anyway for my sister's wedding so if I'm pregnant by then I'm going to pack the car with Goodwill and yard sale stuff.
I plan to feed natural and have been considering cloth diapers for at home and disposables for outings to save money. I may make some items like a boppy pillow.
