6 creative money saving tips

July 20, 2007 at 9:18 am 3 comments

Six simple tips to cut costs in your day-to-day life:

1. Grill outdoors.
Grilling saves money from heating up the house and it’s healthy food and fun too!

2. Camp out.
Instead of making the long trip to a camp site, try pitching the tent in your backyard.

3. Slow down.
According to Edmunds.com, driving slower can save 12% in fuel costs. Moderate drivers save an average of 31% over aggressive drivers.

4. Cooking lesson.
If you have kids, schedule cooking lesson days instead of eating out. Have each kid help with certain meals during the day. Mix things up with a family movie night.

5. Pick-your-own farm.
You can save up to 50% off the farm stand rate. You can also sample while you pick.

6. Pool your money.
Gather a group of friends and pool your money to buy fruits and vegetables in bulk. Make it fun by having a group potluck.

    You can shop at those warehouse outlets to save. We are blessed with an organic type “farmer’s market” close to our house. For some reason the fruits and vegetables are about 1/2 the price as the chain stores.

    Add work out of your house to save on gas too.

    We pool our food by purchasing a whole cow and sharing it with 4 other families. Love the idea of purchasing wholesale produce as well:-)
