I check catalogues each week and stock up on things when there is a really good special. I meal plan so I can buy some ingredients in bulk and have no food waste. I make all of our food from scratch. I research activities for the kids to find the affordable ones. We attend free and cheap activities as often as we can and take our own food wherever we go. I try to walk places when possible so we only fill up my car once a month usually. Sometimes you just need to consider whether you actually need something before spending the money. I have been selling old clothes through Facebook marketplace and then shopping at Savers when I need new clothes (I have lost a considerable amount of weight so clothes were definitely a necessity) It is all about prioritising.
