This is a really great article with many helpful ideas. We already have done and/or follow most of them, and then there are some I refuse to do. Dh's and my parents were depression children so many of the money saving ideas were instilled in us when we were young. The only one I won't consider is the hair salon. I'm not vain mind you, but my girlfriend owns her own shop and gives me a good deal on a great haircut. For years I got my hair cut at the mall shops and there is a huge difference between someone in training or new to the business vs. someone who really knows their craft. It's my one indulgence I won't give up. But...in order to save money, I have been stretching the time between cuts.
Thanks for posting - definitely worth reading!
