NOTHING NEW With the exception of shoes (Shoes for the baby if we can't find them used.), undergarments, food, toiletries, & safety equipment (i.e. car seats). All gifts must be hand-made, used, or non-material objects.
NO FRIVOLOUS SPENDING If we can survive another year without it, we can't buy it. If it is something that we NEED we must buy it used, buy the generic form, or borrow it. Exception being Abigail's 1st birthday on May 10th. We are allowed a $100 budget.
LESS EATING OUT As a family we are allowed 2 meals out per month. All lunches must be packed and taken to work
