I'm trying to save money. Instead of coming up with a budget and sticking to it (impossible), I've decided to stay home. Whenever I feel the urge to go out for something -- food, beer, socialization -- I will instead stay home and make due. I've also found that when I get really broke, I can always go and cash in my change if I need to, but I try not to. Not because I want to hold onto it for something else, but because cashing in your change feels like a last act of desperation, which is why I only cash in my change when I'm flush with money, and then I go and blow all that change-money on something stupid. Which might be part of the reason I find myself staying home as a means of saving moneys.
