We have saved so much in the last couple of years working from home, plus raises, that it's not as big deal as for many. In fact, last week we bought some fresh Copper River Salmon, for $49/lb. which we have never considered affordable before, even last year when it was only $34. After grilling it, I can say that it was worth the expense, but once a year is my limit.

Not Rving this summer and waiting to see if we winter again down south. Still on the fence on that. Drive only if needed. Staying home. I refuse to play the price game. Can't wait until November. Might splurge on a bottle of bourbon to watch the chit show and watch the liberal meltdown.

Night and day. Farm raised is good, don't get me wrong, but when you taste wild salmon with the darker pink meat it's a giant step up. The Copper River Salmon is a rich red meat, with a lot more flavor, succulent and buttery texture and the highest amount of omega-3 fatty acids compared to the others. For the best eating it has to be fresh, so it's flown here to the Seattle area from Alaska daily this time of year, but that costs a lot of money, plus there is a limited supply available.

I wouldn't say we've cut things out, but we're always looking for ways to save a little here and there. With inflation rocketing and a recession on the horizon we're just more aware of what we spend money one.

For example our dog has prescription food thats $110 for 24lbs. We realized a similar prescription food is $105 for 27.5lbs and we can get a manufacture coupon for $5 just by going on the website and asking for it.

I know it doesn't sound like much, but find 4-5 things like that and save $50 a month and it's $600 a year after taxes or like earning an extra $1,000 a year on a paycheck.

The number one thing I've heard is travel. People got some of it around during Covid, but international travel is still dicey and domestic travel is ridiculously expensive now with gas, flight prices, and lodging compared to 2019. There's some rebound travel still going on due to the wedding backlog etc, but the travel for fun group seems to have been cut the most from what I've seen.

It has taken me a long time to teach my husband that all the small stuff adds up quick!

Because we live rural, just last month I sat down with him and calculated the cost to "just run to town to pick something up", and he was a bit surprised.

cut eating out quite drastically. Also, watching my driving habits much more closely so I consolidate trips like grocery shopping and other errands - making sure I do multiple things within the same trip. Previously I wouldn't care as much and would just get in my car and go someplace whenever.

Also cancelled some local trips - was going to see a friend in LA and hotel prices there are $200-250/night for budget hotels, it is just totally absurd. No thanks.

We were going to drive to SLC to see a friend in from Hawaii...... but it would cost SO much money to visit a couple days, I know I'll end up cancelling. THAT makes me sad.

That's sad! We had a few funerals lately that turned into mini-reunions (I guess that's what they are at this age, lol) and I would have liked to attended to catch up with relatives I haven't seen for ages, but we didn't even consider it. Cost as much, or more to fly to Dallas/San Diego than to Europe!
