    Default Frugal Notebooks

    Is anyone going to start a frugal notebook for next year? With all the challenges we have on this board I'm going to have to have a frugal notebook to remember everything. I'm going to have one section for the penny challenge, silver challenge, grocery challenge, and saving challenge. Also, I will have a section on how to decrease my bills or ideas that others have suggested on this board to keep expenses down. Lord only knows if I don't write it down my mind forgets. This way it will keep me motivated and on track. Renee

    I have a frugal notebook, it really helps keep me on track. I have a section to record my coupon/rebate savings, menu ideas, frugal recipes, a place to track my spending and a price book.

    I`m going to add my change challenge also.

    I have a notebook where I started to write down menu's and frugal receipes also. I should say I need to get a notebookfor the above. Have them scattered in my kitchen cupboard and when I do try to find it I can't. Thank goodness I stockpiled on notebooks when they were on sale in August.
    Looks like I'm going to need them for next year!! Renee

    I'll probably set one up, too. I have a Household Notebook and a Coupon/Rebate book already, but, might be changing some things around at the first of the year. I really want to track our spending/saving, including coupons and such.

    Where's Missy? I'm sure she has a notebook.....

    Going to start working on my frugal notebook for next year. Going to list what I would like to accomplish for the next year and see at the end of the year if I did accomplish those goals. This sounds like alot of fun. Renee

    Went to the store today and saved $30 on two pair of pants. Saved on other items I bought for christmas, but can't think of right off hand. Know were going to start our frugal notebooks in Jan., but for myself I'm going to start keeping track from today tell the end of Dec. Goodness, do I ever feel great. Renee
