I'm in. We spend lots on groceries and having breakfast/ coffee while out and about, as well as big ticket items for the toddler and impending baby.
At the moment we're writing down everything we spend on the calendar and we're making a really conscious effort to 'run down' all the food in our fridge/ freezer/ pantry. DH has also (begrudgingly!) stopped buying coffees while out (never mind that we have an awesome machine at home) and I'm probably going to get rid of our cleaner (sob sob!). Also, we've agreed to stop using "it's for the child/ baby" as an excuse to justify buying stuff.
We just did a huge declutter and donated lots of stuff that we probably could have sold. I also have a feeling we'd be entitled to the child care rebate if we applied so I think one of our biggest money issues is laziness when it comes to that kind of thing... We're used to being DINKs and now our reality is very different...

I've been online and reviewed my health insurance. Made a few changes and I think we will save about $40 a month.
Next to think about the house insurance.

Well today I went on a little shopping spree 😳😳 but only spent half of what I had in my purse so that's a win and put nothing on card !!!
And everything I bought was on sale or clearance and stuff I would use or need plus a few Bday presents put away :-) but now I'm doing one small garbage bag of stuff to take to the Salvation Army :-)
