Money in Your Tummy

People often ask me how in the world we can have a budget of $400 that covers almost everything. (groceries, household. health/beauty, diapers, newspapers, gifts, misc.)  I have several answers- careful spending, buying a lot of grocery items at the drugstores, not giving in to the “gimmes” or “keeping up with the Jones'”, and giving a value to a category of items rather than to a specific item. 

Today’s Tip for Tuesday is all about not getting stuck in the rut of thinking we’re getting a good price for an item, when another item has a much lower price (much better value).  Do you have a target price for entertainment, electronics, or food?  It’s easy to be convinced that you need to spend more to get “a better product”
