Step 11 - forever embracing a budget

11. Sought through prayer and meditation and an occasional drink,  the fortitude to continue to improve our cheap skills and frugality and forever embracing a budget.

Yes you heard me.  An occasional drink won't hurt you. Or a glass of wine.  At the end of a day - well spent in frugality, you can reward yourself. 

Prayer and meditation and some chocolate is helpful for those who do not partake in "the drink".  

Read books, join frugal living forums, and keep educating yourself.

Step 10 - keeping at it

 10. Continued to take various inventories around the homestead, and when we found too much abundance of things we don't really need, or couldn't find a practical purpose for them, we donated it to those less fortunate.
