These are my husband's famous words. And my saying NO, no matter how tough, has saved us tons of money. I have learned over the past nine months that if I plan out our meals and start cooking them before he comes home I keep him from begging and keep myself from giving in. Planning takes time, so I try to start as early as Thursday for the following week. I try to see what we have left over, what coupons I have saved up, and what cravings we might have had this week that weren't in the plan. That way we are still eating good things that we like, but we are keeping it cheap.
