Tough times call for drastic measures

In these hard economic times, we all have to do our part to save where ever we can. I, for one, have started shopping at Aldi, clipping coupons, stopped going to starbucks, putting a few more weeks in between hair appointments and such.

My husband......
Went from this:


To this:


Just his way of helping. Seriously! The efforts of this man are amazing. I think we may be able to afford that lake front home we have always wanted.

Not to defend him or anything, but that really IS a huge sacrifice! :o)

Patrice said...

Well I am glad he is making a conscious effort, but if he really wants to help out he should downgrade even further & drink like us poor college students- Natty Light! lol

If, as I suspect, that the original was Bell's it was a bad economic decision to switch.

The Man and I are Bud Light drinkers as well. We've also had to cut back and like you, that means we had to switch from bottles to cans. Seriously, they should give the canned beer a completely different name. It doesn't even taste the same. As for me, I'm going to hold on tight to my bottle opener and get real tight with Ms. Chardonnay and Mr. Merlot.

The Starbucks bit had me shivering...and bowing in utter amazement that someone has cracked their system, and survived.

you are too funny! i love how he helps out and We have begun shopping at Aldi's as well. Some people snubb their noses at it.
But, there is a lot of good food that you can get from Aldi's. There is also some not good stuff their too.
