    Question Whats your least favorite frugal thing you do?

    And why is it your least favorite?

    Keeping the lights out all day untill dinner time.Cause sometimes it is just nasty outside and a little light would surely help lift my spirits.Still haven't found a frugal way of keeping my house bright when its grey and dreery outside.Any ideas?

    I would just turn on one light
    or, get some of those push lights ..but then that'd be using up batteries so still not very frugal either..

    My least favorite frugal thing to do, is returning items to a grocery store when i realize i've been overcharged, or a coupon didn't get rung up for it. It's just one of those things I'd rather not do, but then I think about the money and it just eats away at me until I do it.

    My least favorite is saying "no" to things dh and I want. I know that it probably makes the biggest difference, but I hate not getting us something.

    My least favorite frugal thing to do is to have to clean the house myself since I can't afford a maid! LOL!!!!!!

    I don't like trying to control my clothes shopping but, I hate having a huge credit card bill even more!

    I agree with Jenn, my least favorite thing to do is say NO to dh! He has worked so hard all his life (45 out of 59 years, he worked for my uncle at the age of 14!) that I hate saying no to him!

    I hate not being able to buy clothes at those cute little kids boutiques, of course I can get my fix on Ebay at a fraction of the price, but with 3 now, I can't go nuts like I did with just 1.

    Whats your least favorite frugal thing you do?
    My least favorite frugal thing to do is not have area calling so I can call my family and friends for a low monthly fee .
    However DH saw no use for it and it would save us money to cut it out of our phone budget so I can't call my family nor his family nor our friends for a low monthly fee.
    Now I have to call and hangup and then they call us back.
