Can you get a roommate? I understand about cat food. My dog was on prescription food from the vet before she died. My other dead dog and dead cats were on prescrption food too. Then there are the dog chews I buy. The dogs need Greenies and other chews.

Makeup is my weakness but, I have cut down and I will not spend over 15.00 for 1 lipstick. Yes if I liked 4 colors and used 4 till they were empty I could use expensive ones but I don't. I do use some of the cheaper brands but like Clinique, Estee Lauder, Prescriptives, Lancome, Bare Escentials foundations. Cheap foundations don't work. I do not buy all the fancy creams at over $100.00 a month though. I can't get Stilla, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Stagelight etc here without using mail order which I dislike.

give yourself pedicures or get a girlfriend to do your feet and vice versa

also if your hair is short try a lower maintenance haircut. I cut my hair every 3 or 4 months. Dye maybe you can do it yourself. I got my formula from my hairdresser but she uses 2 to 3 times as much dye on me as my hair is long and thick(and resistant grey). I can't dye it myself but I can do a root touch up. I get mine colored every 6 weeks. It does save money over every 4 weeks.
