Quoting Ꭶwan♥Nemö:" It SUCKS. I qualify for nothing and im struggling my ass off. I make 30K a year and that might sound ... [snip!] ... on sale. I use Price Chopper card (also saves me on gas), Save a lot and aldis. I know it will get easier/better one day."
Also for toiletries and things, the Dollar Tree is my friend. I dont have sensitive skin and Im not picky about soap and other things so I get the off brands there.
Clothes shopping is done on the internet where i can search coupons and get good deals. 10dollarmall.com and 599fashion.com is AWESOME because everything is under 10 dollars and are high quality. I get a LOT of my sons and my clothes there and they ship quickly.
I do have some luxuries though.
I dont have internet, I usually use my phone. I do have Direct TV and that 30 bucks a month for a basic cable package. Thats all I can think of on how I cut pennies and live within my means.
Its hard but you can do it.
