    Great tips! I second thrift store buying. I like Clothes Mentor (I can’t fit into Plato’s Closet stuff any more, womp womp). I would suggest focusing on quality brands at the thrift store in the first place so they’ll last a long time. I’m going more for timeless pieces that I love instead of fads. That keeps me from going through a crapton of in-style clothes and contributing to the landfill. It keeps my budget happy as well. :)

    I am changing the way I grocery shop. Instead of trying to buy a week’s worth of groceries at a time, I am aiming to buy 2-3 meals worth of food at a time. I found that I was over estimating how much food we actually eat and some of it would go bad. Now I buy the ingredients for 2-3 meals (which will usually last for 4-5 days, we like leftovers) and the challenge to use up what we have on hand before heading back to the store. It runs counter to the mainstream advice of staying out of the store to avoid spending money, but it is working better so far.

    Might I suggest visiting your library for books, if you aren’t planning on keeping them anyway?
