Since about January we having been really keeping track of all exspenditures! I have been concentrating on needless spending & repetitive spending things like you really don't pay attention to its just a habit to buy! or get in car and drive for 1 specific thing and end up buying more than ya went for! dh losing his job in the first time in 18 years really was a reality check !so slowly we are changing bad habits and rethinking what really is important now and in the future we our discussing goals and that is a good thingSmile
