More work done in less time, and lots of family time together.

Now I can check all my email accounts at the same time! That’s doing more with less!

Now my shower/tub is more clean with less effort (albeit more batteries…)

It always feels great to donate clothing and items we don’ t use or need, but the key is to be consistent, or I should say consistently organized – which unfortunately I’m not. As soon as I de-clutter a room, it never seems to take too long for it to become cluttered again with other things. Being more organized and doing more with less will once again be on my New Year’s Resolution list!

I’ve become a pro at finding deals and I absolutely love craigslist. We bought our first couch via craiglist for a steal!

We help the kids to focus on what they really want and need (and will actually use) than what looks exciting right that minute, and we try to spend our money on activities that we can do as a family such as videos, games, outings, than on buying expensive stuff that we end up having no room for! My kids can get more “playtime” sitting with a stack of paper and 99-cent crayons, or running around the yard with a stick (jedi, knight, lion tamer, soldier…who knows?) than if we spend hundreds of dollars on breakable toys, or expensive video games! I love that they choose to be thrifty, not because it’s the ‘good’ choice, but because they prefer it! Makes my job much easier.

No grocery store for me until all those aging boxes of couscous and off-brand pinto beans are cooked and eaten! More pantry space and more room in the grocery budget.

It would be so easy to catch photos of the kids.

It doesnt cost much and it helps me later on when I am bored or uninspired to give me new ideas

Usually something classic and nondescript, like a great black cardigan. When I stumble upon it in the guest room closet or a box under the bed, it’s like shopping without the buyer’s remorse. I highly suggest it. Also, I’m getting some great ideas from the other comments!

I have in my own house a soda vending machine, when I feel like drinking one, I buy one. At the end of certain period of time, I open the vending machine to recollect my profit!!!
