My best money saving tips

I am super obsessive about eating healthy and trying to be cheap!
Buy canned veggies (beans, roasted red peppers refried beans, chicpeas, etc) from the dollar store
I must have silk vanilla soymilk in my coffee! Mix it with a small jug of 1% milk
Eat oatmeal/pumpkin/peanut butter for lunch..lol
Most days I have a clif bar+ apple for lunch
Buy store brand sf jelly
Stay in the dark w/good smelling candles as much as possible..ahhaha
NEVER have cash on me...it will be spent!
Get a car thats good on fuel mileage, dammit!
Use ALL of my makeup before buying any more..this applies to shower gel, shampoo, conditioner/etc
Go 2 days without drying my hair
(This is why I can't wait for summer will be 5!!!)
Make my own protein bars!

NO buying starbucks/any storebought coffee/tea...bring your own!
NOOOO buying running clothes everytime I go into marshalls...bbahahaa
Everytime I get an itch to shop, GO FOR A RUN!!!! It makes me feel more fabulous, anyway
Cook my own tofu instead of buying lunchmeats
Make my own pita pizza
Go to a restaurant w/a salad bar, take home some LOL
Actually USE all my shoes/purses, etc
Buy Zoe's granola from Biglots for2$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do something creative whenever I feel materialistic...or just drink some wine. heheh
Shop at goodwill, thriftstores for things more
roast frozen veggies

anyone have anymore?

Its been awhile!

Hey there! I haven't posted because..well, I've just been lazy..and I've been having this recurring pain in my lower calf after every run..until now!
The culprit??! My asics kayano 14s! I've been using my ds trainer 14s and no problems whatsoever! They are much lighter. I think I just cannot do heavy shoes. They are too cushioned maybe, but I am so much faster, more confident! YAY!

Anyways I am continuing to be kind of....happy about this economy situation because I feel it brings us back to doing what really makes us happy, aside from the emotional shopping/spending sprees.

It has forced me to be more creative, more mindful, more happy....If i knew then what I know now..... <3

Except for this! Officially my new ride!!!!!!!!!!
I will be totally broke after April 30..lol

And my new obsession: vaseline !HAhahaha. It is the best beauty product ever! Looky http://www.christinaloves.com/2008/09/13/50-uses-for-vaseline/

Your horoscope for March 17, 2009 There is an important lesson in follow-through that you need to learn, shan. More than likely, as you strive for perfection, you get the feeling that nothing is every fully completed. Try not to be so hard on yourself. More than likely, the work you have finished so far is probably much better than what most people could ever accomplish. Put the final touches on whatever you have working, and move on.
