#5: Completely agree, redcloverstar.
I hadn't given much thought to Goodwill/thrift stores until a friend introduced me this past year, and now I'm hooked. Not only have I saved so much money actually finding nice work clothes and home/kitchen goods at a fraction of the cost from stores (even on sale), but it totally satisfies that craving for 'newness.'
Also, I am one of those people who researches a lot online before buying anything, especially big purchases. The few times I have come close to buying on impulse, but slept on it, the 'need' totally subsided the next day. Many times I even found other places where it was sold for less.

As a cost-cutting method during grad school in Milwaukee, I knew I had to ditch cable, which I only really used for sports. And I can't say I entirely miss that even. I know people don't want to be the one who misses a show or a game for cooler talk, but I haven't found that I'm missing out on much.
Like most of the responses here, I have internet which which just ended it's $30/mo. promo for one year and now pay $45. Netflix, Amazon Prime and a borrowed HBOgo account and it's really all I need. There are some good sites that keep me up to date on current tv shows or stream live sports, which I will not utter here....
