My family has to look for ways to save money. We have been irresponsible for years, and it is time to shape up. My husband and I sometimes just spend without even looking to see if we can find a better deal. We love to shop for electronics and clothes, which are both expensive.
We spend a lot on pointless toys for our kids too. Even though it makes them happy, we worry that they are going to be too spoiled. We are lucky to both have good jobs, but we don’t save nearly as much as we should. You never know when you might need to dip into savings, and since we don’t have any we are starting to get worried.
We decided to look into direct tv specials since if we could find a good deal on that it would mean savings every month. I think if we start being more responsible now we will be in good shape in a few months. It will be an adjustment, but I know we can do it.
