I always appreciate the encouragement to save money. I especially appreciate new and different ideas for ways to save some more. I also find a lot of encouragement by knowing I’m not alone in the desire to save more. Wouldn’t you agree? Here’s some more money saving ideas for all of us.
If you want to shop at a big warehouse store without paying for a membership, you may to read Andrea’s article about 9 ways to shop at Costco without a membership. I didn’t know a lot of these!
Emily shared a guest post at Money Saving Mom about her favorite ways to get free product coupons. I haven’t entered a lot of sweepstakes but after reading this, maybe I should! I like to email companies for coupons, too.
Jessica reminded me to use up those gift cards you’ve been stashing. I’ve had to happen where the stores close before I can use a gift card and that’s so disappointing! It’s a good reminder to enjoy using the gift cards you’ve been given and don’t wait too long to do so!
Jen shared how to create a meal solutions notebook. This will save you lots of time – and money – to be so organized. I need to do this with all my print outs of Pinterest success recipes.
Shelly reminded me that we can save money by cutting out convenience foods. I’m working harder at doing this again.
The Prudent Homemaker told how she writes a garage sale list. This is an important way to make the most of your time – and money – when garaging sale for bargains.
Finally, Crystal shared how to save $100 or more by staying home more. I think this is one of the most overlooked pieces of advice. I’m striving to combine my teaching and errand days this upcoming year so there are days when Nathan and I are truly home together.
