Living from paycheck to paycheck is NOT the way to go. I hope you have some savings set aside for retirement or for a rainy day.

Sorry if I'm being a killjoy, but I'm a rather pragmatic person. If I have to wait for "payday" in order to buy some little goody for myself, then I really can't afford it.

Maybe you do have savings set aside for the important things, and your paycheck is used for bonus items. That's perfectly OK. People who don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from are the only ones who should also worry about supporting the economy.

It's just great to be creative, but also do the math!

Actually, we live so far from town, (more than 55 miles from the nearest store) that we try to go to town only a couple of times a month. Sometimes the road over the 5k mountain pass is so bad that we don't feel safe driving to town. We are fully stocked on food, toiletries, etc. but we do save our fun money for town trips. I very rarely buy online, I like to see, hold and use whatever I spend my money on, right away.
