Saving Money

There's no doubt that having a family costs a LOT of money...but there are so many great ways to save  and live well even in this economy!

Here is a list of ways that we have found to save money:
  • Buy quality! There have been times in the past when we have learned that buying the cheaper appliance, fixture, whatever is not such a bargain.  Buying quality lasts longer, and saves you time and money in the long run!

  • Keep it simple!  How many times have you gotten home after a shopping trip with items you never planned on buying or that you didn't really need?  Stick with your list and always ask yourself if you can live without it before you get to the check out line.
  •  Food thrift!  Do you have a discount or bulk food store near you?  You can save a lot of money by shopping at discount food stores.

  • Coupons are like printing money! After making your list, search online for coupons and discount codes before shopping.
  • Re-use!  Consider quality used items rather than new items such as clothing or toys.  Lots of cities have mom's clubs and children's clothing exchanges.
Have you found any great ways to save money recently?

I like to shop at thrift shops. If you find one in a more upscale area they often have brand new clothes.

I have found my greatest treasures in thrift stores and some have been brand new. I'm also getting back into coupons.
