My plans to save money this year include:
-Staying out of the mall! This is a biggie for me. I walk in for one item and walk back out with 5... Best solution is to just stay the heck away.
-Cooking everything from scratch. We are gluten free and mostly paleo, so our grocery budget is struggling at the moment.
-Line drying clothes instead of throwing them in the dryer. I admit, I'm lazy. My rule is now that they are only put in the dryer if it's pissing down outside.
-Staying at home more often and only doing close trips - Save on fuel. I'm trying to turn our little home in a haven for all of us, so that staying here is actually a pleasure. Another 2-3 weeks and we'll be there.
-Budgeting and sticking to it. Joining the no spend challenge!
-Purchasing all fruit and vegetables at the market and they must be in season.
-Re-purposing old items instead of throwing away (I'm not very good in this department but I'm looking to improve).
