Buy the next seasons clothes when they are on sale and buy smart.
I buy good quality clothes for DD1 as they get passed onto DD2, if i buy cheapy crap they don't last.
DS i don't buy loads for as i wash everyday so a half dozen T-shirts & shorts is enough.
I don't stick to a strict budget but i do allocate our money each week to bills and expenses. We also have a savings account that i treat as a bill that i pay each week so even if we spend all we get that week we have still put money aside.
Unfortunately living rural means we have to drive everywhere so i try and make the most of each trip rather than making multiple ones. I make notes in my phone whenever i think of something we need to do so i wont forget.
We have solar panels to help with the power bill.
We keep chickens which are a constant egg supply plus we sell the extra eggs which in turn pays for the chicken feed.
