My Frugal Ways...

March 7th, 2007 at 02:21 pm

I decided to list some of the ways I try to save money.

-clip coupons: I have a coupon book (got it for free!) that organizes all of my coupons
-I participate in freecycle...why buy if someone is giving it away?
-wash clothes in cold water...I use warm water if something is stained
-unplug electronics that are not in use
-bring my lunch to work
-adjust my thermostat when I'm not home.
-try to keep my car clean and free of misc stuff to get good gas mileage
-I frequent community organizations that give away diapers and baby clothes/items for free.

*that's all I can think of for now*

    Good ideas. I keep my hot water heater turned off all day. It is only on when I run the dishwasher or if we take a shower. Turn it on 20 minutes before a shower, then turn if off (if it is electric)

    you'll make more of a positive impact on gas mileage if you make sure your tires are properly inflated, avoid jackrabbit starts and sudden braking and of course, speeding.
