I am short on time, and short on money. We have rented for a year, while trying to save up for a downpayment on a house purchase. When we sold our house in Illinois to move to Ohio, it was in the middle of the housing slump. So, although we have owned 3 houses and improved each one for equity, we're once again saving for a downpayment.
So, I try to be frugal. I don't go crazy at the supermarket as I would like. I don't buy clothes unless they're on sale. We try to not purchase big items that we don't need. We don't go out often - maybe we should do that more often ;)
So, when the need came up for me to get a haircut, I put it off and put it off. For one, I didn't have much time, but I was not looking forward to paying $40 for a trim. So, I put it off too long. My bangs were hanging so low over my eyes I was shaking my head constantly to move them. Or, parting them to the side. So, after a few weeks of this, I decided to give a bang trim a try. I did good! Here's how they turned out!
