I'm not a big water drinker. The only way I'd drink it was if it came flavored like Vitamin water. I learned that adding 1 oz of cranberry juice to 7 oz of water or adding a slice of citrus (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, etc) tastes just as good & saves money!
I like to dress for the body I have, not the body I had. So it's important to be able to buy new clothes as I change sizes. But that can also be really expensive.
My solution is to shop at resale stores. My favorite spot is a Christian non-profit organization that raises money from selling d...
Some Kindle books are free on amazon.com and other sites. In addition, they are putting many in public libraries where you check them out online and then return them. The best thing is that you don't have to own a Kindle - you can use your PC or smartphone to read them.
Our paychecks are direct deposited into our bank accounts. I've set-up small automatic withdrawals into our savings account every time we get paid. Now we have a nice little nest egg to fall back on for emergency or big bills.
Writing and tweaking suggested meal plans and then writing my grocery list only for those items.

But I sewed them up into pillowcases, which are a cinch to make. I often change pillowcases more often than the sheets, so this works well for me.
I satisfy my shopping habit by applying for tons of free samples. I use sweetfreestuff.com because there arent any of those annoying "sign up for all these free offers to get your free sample!" sites. I get free samples in my mailbox (and most of them come with coupons). I get cool stuff everyday...
One day while prepping store bought scallions for a meal I decided to save the rooted ends I had just cut off.
Later, I stuck them in the soil out in my garden and then proceeded to forget all about them.
It had to have been more than a week or so before I walked by and lo and behold new sca...
I hit the following websites weekly to stock up on electronic coupons for grocery shopping. For some, you can load them directly onto your savings card (paperless!), and others you can print out and take with you. The paperless ones automatically redeem at checkout.
Don't buy what you don't really need. Having less is very freeing. Over consumption and over production is ruining our bodies minds and environment. Less can be more. When you see what clothes you live on while on vacation (clothes for work aside) I always come home and donate a bunch of thi...
