I used to order a lot out of catalogs (mostly J.Jill). I've started turning down the pages of items I like and then put it aside for a couple of days. I go back and look at what I thought I wanted and usually find I can do without it. I also curb a lot of impulse buying by asking myself, "Where is this going to go?" I don't really need anything other than food. I have too many clothes, enough furniture and decorative items. I don't wear make-up or have my hair or nails done. I have the basic cable package with 10 channels. I unplug my coffee maker and toaster after I use them in the morning. I don't leave any chargers plugged in unless I'm using them. When I go away on vacation I unplug everything in the house except the oven and fridge. I make a crockpot full of soup or something on the weekend and pack it in individual containers for the rest of the week. I make my own applesauce. I don't get the paper or any magazine subscriptions. I do buy books for my Kindle (could get them free from the library) but I share my account with my 3 children and my mom, so everyone can read the books. I don't eat meat on a regular basis. I have a wood stove that I supplement my heating system with. The only thing I really splurge on is good coffee, pet food, and produce.
Oh, and I bought my house from a bank that had foreclosed it and only pay $120/month for my mortgage.
