    So between my hospitalization for 5 weeks , and DD's for a week, I feel off the wagon of everything. I stopped keeping track of money (all the bills have been paid on time thank goodness I was with it enough) I stopped making homemade everything. It was hard enough just to make it through the...

    I'm the first to admit that when times are good, I let up a bit on my frugal habits. I never give them up completely, but I do lighten up a bit and may spend a bit more than usual. This fall, however, it's time to get back on the frugal wagon, whole-heartedly. No more slacking. In fact, I...

    This is not easy to admit, but I fell off the frugal wagon. As you can see in my sig, we had our debt consolidation loan paid off, no more credit card debt. But we went nuts around here at Christmas, needed heating oil this winter, tires for the truck etc. Now we are about 6 grand in debt again...

    So yes, I'll admit it: I fell off of the wagon. I think I broke a few bones and severed my purse strings in the process, but overall, it's recoverable. I have good health care. ;) In the process of renovating the house, we fell pretty hard. We used up all of the money that we'd been paying...

    I am in such a precarious place right now! In the past three months, I have paid my debt down by $3K. That is huge, but I still have a long way to go. I know that it has been possible to accomplish this because I have been really vigilant about my spending, and used my creativity. Right now...

    I know I've seen threads in the past about having already fallen off the wagon and then how to get back on but never really one about this? So tell me....how do you realize you're starting to fall but have not completely fallen off the wagon? I'm just checking back into what I call 'reality'...

    I am completely to blame but I have fallen off the frugal wagon again. I just paid off most of our debt about 6 months ago and now my credit cards all have balances that I can't pay off and they keep creeping higher. I have property taxes to pay in a few weeks and I am not sure where all of...

    I'm ashamed to admit that I have. I started working again a couple of months ago and I've been trying to adjust to my new lifestyle, but I've been doing it all wrong! I have: *Been eating out WAY too much. *I've been buying convenience type foods to make my evenings go easier. *I've been...

    I've fallen off the wagon. My MasterCard balance is **huge** for me (over $6,000) I cannot pay the statement balance due Jan. 4, 2009 (Over $2,000). I haven't let this happen in almost 10 years. I want to kick myself. I have a payment of $1,000 scheduled for the 1st of the year.

    Hi, Thanks to all who listened to us in October and gave us advice. Here is our update. We are moving this weekend to our 2 bedroom. Unfortunately I lost the baby 1 week ago. We will keep on saving a small part for the next one. We are back on the debt repayment. Maybe it won't be so...

    Gosh I have really fallen off the frugal wagon. I shop almost everyday, now mind you 90% of what I buy is for resale in my booth but gezz. Since I started my own little career I have been on a thrift store / yard sale binge. I'm afraid that if I don't go I will miss out of the deal of the...
