You made me laugh; sometimes I feel exactly the same way. Lately, I've had a few opportunities to spend some money, but failed to do so. I couldn't think of one thing I felt that I needed. Sure, there were some wants, but none of them big enough to make me open my wallet; and I even decided to let a few of my needs go. They didn't seem big enough to be bothered by. I guess I'll just wait for a nicer bargain to fulfill those...

My Mama used to say, "If your clothes are clean, and your hair is shiny, you can go anywhere!".

My own personal frugal saying is, Practice being satisfied." It really does pick me up.

Another thing is to keep a little "blessing box" to put a little slip of paper with what has blessed you that day. It could be a comfy bed, a smile, a good meal etc. When you have a bad day go to you" blessing box" and read the blessings!

"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have." Originally said by Theodore Roosevelt. I think it may also have been McGyver's motto. It always makes me stop and think about what I want to do and if I can accomplish it without having to buy anything for the project.

I love that quote and have it in a frame over my desk with another quote that I also love.

"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." by Edward Everette Hale.

Does anyone remember all the words to the saying: use it up, make do, do without... I can't remember all the words and I would like to use the saying in my newsletter.

Think of it as a game - every time you save you earn invisible points, which you can then spend on something else!
