So with a house payment, car payment, student loans around the corner, regular expenses, and, oh yeah, a money-sucking baby on the way, I'm trying to think of ways to save money. Here's what I've come up with thus far:
- Beauty treatments: As much as I enjoy a professional pedicure, and as hard as it is to reach my feet these days, because I prefer light colored polish that just looks kinda shiny, I can do this myself. Messups aren't as obvious with light polish, so this is an easy fix.
- Entertainment: I think I will cancel my Netflix. It's not a lot every month, but I'm not watching the DVDs that come in the mail, and I rarely turn on the instant streaming, opting instead for the DVR. I think I'll suspend the account for a few months and see how it goes. Also, Jon and I should head to Revere when we want to see a movie instead of the slightly closer Peabody because Revere gives a great military discount.
- House: Jon and I have been pretty good about inexpensive ways to do what we want with the house. We paint ourselves, I painted my own animal pictures for the nursery, I take my own photos and blow them up cheap for decoration, and I pick up little things at Family Dollar instead of Target.
Does anyone else have some good money-saving tips??
