I have made a decision to discontinue my budget posts at the end of each month, for various reasons but the primary one is to simplify my life a bit. I just ran out of pages in my dollar store budget book and realized I don't want to buy another one. It shouldn't be a chore to do a blog post and I am finding those posts a bit of a bore.
Suffice it to say, over the last several years, I have managed to lower and then keep my grocery budget on track at $450 per month. My clothing is still 95% purchased used at thrift stores in an effort to both save money and prove that you can have a great wardrobe for very little money plus recycle at the same time. My hair budget, which was one of the biggest things I have cut down is now only 20% of what it was a few years ago. I will still continue the practices but you won't see me blog about it at the end of each month. I will still share my thrift store finds and nifty bargains along the way.
The rabbit picture? Well, every post needs a picture and this is the used-to-be-domestic-now-wild-bunny that greets me at the entrance to work each day. His name is Carl. Now that we are pet-less I make friends with every bird and furry creature I meet.
