Well I try to be a little stricter on myself these days when it comes to spending. Impulse buying can really add up . Instead, once in a while I will buy myself a Starbucks double shot and a chocolate chip muffin after running errands all day, grocery shopping, coupon shopping. I do this about twice a month. And I feel like I have treated myself.
I'm being strict about spending household money, and at the same time I balance out all the work I put into couponing by getting super deals on name brand products for things I really like that I wouldn't normally buy unless I have a coupon.
