Someone recently asked me what I do for work since I’m always home with my children. My response was that I don’t do anything. I don’t have a job. Well not one that brings in money. My husband is the bread winner in our house. But I told her that it’s not only about the money you bring in, but how you save on everyday things as well.
So it got me to thinking. How do I save a dollar? Well if you remember from my other posts we use cloth diapers. With two children in diapers this makes a big difference. Even if you cant or don’t want to use them 100% of the time they still will cut back on your diaper expense big time. We also started using cloth towels in the kitchen. We used to use a TON of paper towels. We still use a ton just much of it is cloth instead of paper. I make the baby food, sun dry when we can to save power, buy in bulk, and eat leftovers. I am also trying to learn to coupon which I’m sure will save me money. I have recently learned to up-cycle, which is where you take something that was previously made and turn it into something else (like a pillowcase into a toddler dress).
What do you do to save a dollar?
