We all have budgets that get tight from time to time. My families budget usually gets really tight around Christmas or after a vacation. There are certain things that we refuse to give up like our high speed internet and Netflix but when budgets get tight somethings HAVE to go.

A new study from found the top things we'd give up if money got tight.

The top three are:

  • expensive jewelry
  • club and social memberships
  • expensive purses

The three things we WON'T get rid of are:

  • Internet service
  • cell phone service
  • cable

The first thing to go in my personal household are:

  • new apps
  • eating out
  • purchasing new clothes

What are somethings that you give up when money is tight?
