So I was reading a post over at Crazyland that reminded me of my husband's wise Grandmommy. She always has said, "If you don't need it more than toilet paper..." I have been thinking a lot about frugality. Trying to read many many blogs about couponing, budgeting and all of that. Motherboard's post just really reminded me about how I shop. I have endless wants, we all do. But I try not to buy things unless I really love them. However it is easier for me to compromise when I'm buying it for my little girl.
Going off of Grandmommy's buying mantra. What do I need more than toilet paper. Food for sure, and other assorted grocery items. But most things wouldn't comfort me much when I'm stranded at the toilet with nothing but my hand. But hey.... somedays I could get creative. Especially when i'm craving some of those things I don't need more than toilet paper. LOL
So on that line of thoughts what are some things you think you might give up toilet paper for if you had to choose between buying one or the other? Do you have a shopping mantra to help you shop with frugality?
