I have a friend who budgets wisely every month. She has raised 2 children and gone back to school herself with what she saved. She owns her own home and about 4 acres of land.
When she buys food she marks the top of the can with the date of purchase. She uses the oldest items first. Economically speaking, she saves a lot with coupons as well. She plans out her menu for the month and has supplies that were purchased to feed them for a month.
I think this kind of frugality makes great sense. It gives a leeway to be able to add to your savings or save for a trip or any other things you want to do. She is not wealthy by any means but she does have a hefty savings account.
