Frugal Game

Ok, you know you are getting old (or becoming too much of a tightwad) when your entertainment is sitting on the porch or in the recliner counting cars that go by.
LOL!!! It's amazing how few cars we see in a day's time nowadays, considering we live on a state route.

Seriously, we don't get more than a few minutes at a time to sit, but the gas prices have definately affected the traffic we see here. Especially since we live too far "out in the sticks" to walk or for public transportation.

We have seriously cut back on unnecessary trips. We have one day a week for most all errands.

What has your family done to offset gas costs? Will you be planning a vacation this year?

We typically head south to the beach every year, but I think we are going to stay closer to home due to gas prices. I'm sure we'll be able to find something to amuse ourselves that isn't too far from home. :-)

We're not doing a BIG vacation this year. We'll just be vacationing around our city - visiting all the thinks we normally skip over.
