Bills and food! The boring expenses. smile Good on you for not buying anything else, Debbie. smile

Mostly, people's biggest expenses are housing, utilities and food, in that order. All of those things can be adjusted and trimmed, unless you are locked into a mortgage or have to stay in a particular apartment, for whatever reason.

I have the lowest possible mortgage I was able to find and I both have food stamps and use food pantries for my food, as well as doing the super-coupon thing. So for me, food is a really minimal expense.

Utilities is the thing I have the most control over and is the most interesting thing to save for me right now.

I should start to gather up books for trade, so I can spend less on the used bookstore on thursday.

I don't expect I will have other expenses this week, except maybe i will top off my gas tank before the prices rise again.
