There are lots of things we have done during quarantine and lots of thing that we have not. I can tell you that the one thing I haven't done during quarantine is shop. I haven't shopped online one bit.

If you know me at all, you know this is quite a big deal. I love to shop! I shop even when I have no reason to shop. So this has been quite an eye opener for me. I have realized how much money I save not shopping, especially buying things I don't need.

One thing the quarantine has made me do is save my money. Thank the Lord I have a job that has allowed me to continue to work and keep money coming in. I know everyone hasn't been that lucky, which has made me see a bigger picture, there could come a day when money doesn't come in like it has been.

Don't get me wrong, I have taken a hit but near as hard as some, I am just thankful I have had the sense enough not to blow it. I now know why my Grandma has save 90 cents of every dollar they ever earned, and now I am trying to do the same.
