Your Favorite Frugal Tip

Sweet Ladies,

What is your favorite frugal tip? What is one or a few things that really saves you money and benefits your family budget?  As I prepare to get my last pay check our income will drop and the money I made that paid for schooling will be gone and now that payment will now be coming out of our main budget. I am trying hard to learn, read, and research ways to to cut expense and keep our budget in order!

I'm excited to hear your tips. Share any books, advice, and sites that have helped you along the way. Thank you!

Blessings,
Chrissy

  1. My Abundant Life is a good blog. Wendy lives on a shoe string,ms hops specials, cooks from scratch, gardens etc and they do very well on little. She inspires me a lot!
    The Cheapskates club has a free newsletter. Both of these are on my side bar.
    I think my tip is to work out all your costs and work them about as yearly costs ie. Something that is a small amount daily might not s the m bad butnwh you see how much it is yearly its a shock! So that how I decide if something is worth it. Also look at gift budget as after food and entertainment that is often a big one that can be hugely reduced. Good luck! Xxx

  3. I would say the best tip is stay debt-free and then try and eat meatless meals, that is our biggest savings. We used to only eat meat on weekends and I would make a casserole that would last us both Sat. & Sun. However, now we are eating 4 days of meat but may eventually cut down to 2 days again. I can say that when I did freezer cook, it saved us a LOT of money but I'm just not able to do it anymore they way I used to.

    1. Funny how seasons change! I understand about not being able to freezer cook the same way. Thanks for the tips!

  4. I think one that saves us quite a bit is cutting our own hair. Also not wearing make-up. Making our own products like window cleaner, toilet cleaner, toothpaste, deodorant, laundry soap and such also help to save money. Cooking basically everything from scratch saves money plus is healthier too.
