Willpower Empower


Despite making lists and economising and following Cheapskate's guidelines, I decided I just didn't have willpower when it came to the supermarket. Even though I would go with a list of five items I would come home with ten or more. Now the five items were the essentials...the others were what I thought I needed when I saw them or thought I might need them later. After discussing this with a friend I discovered she was the same. So now we make our lists, give them to one another, and we only buy off that list. We deliver to one another, collect the amount owing and have coffee. And celebrate our savings, which are so far running at $60 a week. We are putting that away towards a family holiday together.
