    Make your own laundry soap. Learn to crochet to make wash colths. Be inventive in using things you already have on hand to make things you need.

    Great idea’s!

    Think twice before you buy… especially online. It’s so easy to do and with a feel-good buzz, and then getting a package is fun… but then you’ve got a lot of junk to throw away (and shortage of cash).

      So true

    I learned to cut hair so I could cut my families hair to save money. Also we don’t eat out too often. I always use leftovers as well.

  • #135841

    I love the laundry soap idea!

  • #135857

    Im trying to make household cleaners that are healthier for everyone at home!! They work so much better and green products can be so expensive at the stores!

  • #136050

    We only eat out 2 times a month. You will be amazed how much you save once you stop eating out and cut out all those coffee runs. I now make coffee at home too as well 🙂

  • #136331

    I make my own general purpose cleaner with vinegar, I’ve started making the majority of our meals at home. Meal planning and making an accompanying shopping list so that I don’t buy food we don’t need. And I’ve saved a lot using the Ibotta app. It can save you a lot of money, but be careful, because I’ve been lured into buying unnecessary things, just because they were really cheap, lol. I’ll post my referral link if you’re interested 😊

    I’ve been trying out some laundry detergent recipes, but haven’t found one I really like. My clothes don’t seem to get as clean. Do you mind sharing your recipe?

  • #136633

    We started making all of our Coffee Lattes & even tried a few Frappe’s in the blender to save a few bucks. Amazing how quick the cash adds up. I save the stash for Christmas now.

    • #208653

      These are all great ideas to save some money!!! I havent ever found a home made laundry recipe that got my clothes clean though!

  • #136704

    I love the ideas I’ve seen in the comments here, especially the laundry soap and household cleaners you can make yourself. It saves money, more safe for your family and fun idea to spend time with the kids making different things. I’m gonna try these out if I can get a recipe or ingredients to make them.

  • #136717

    we watch neflix at home instead of going out

  • #188964

    Meal planning helps a lot. Also maybe have a yard sale, get rid of clutter and kids clothes, we all know they grow so fast and make a couple dollars. I also coupon

  • #189084

    I do a lot of receipt scanning aps. I make money back on groceries that I already needed to buy anyways.

  • #199693

    I loved reading all the comments to get some new ideas! I’ve been looking for ways to save and I think a big one for my family is eating out. We are always on the go so if I do a lot more meal prep and planning I think I could cut down that cost a lot. I also love the making your own household cleaners! Thanks everyone for the ideas!

  • #199787

    Great ideas.

  • #200187

    So many great ideas, ladies!!! Thank you for sharing!

    I’ve cut cost by no longer purchasing items that we just toss in the trash. For example, paper napkins, paper towels, paper plates etc. I’ve purchases reusable items for replacements. The cost up front is a bit more, but you save in the long run and cut down on your trash…a win, win!

  • #200367

    Thanks. Fantastic ideas. We need these at home especially right now when money is tight

  • #201015

    Sign up for restaurant and grocery store rewards to save money on eating out and cooking in.

  • #201304

    Ibotta has been the best app I have used to save money but there are several others, especially if you eat out or shop online often. Search for coupons on stores website/app as well, there’s a store that I shop at often that sends me coupons a few times a month and usually sends me 1-2 coupons to get a certain item for free.

    I haven’t had a chance to read all..but make your own cleaning products, shop clearances, thrift stores, garage sale, facebook marketplace or offer up before buying brand new. Use coupons. Use receipt apps to collect points and earn cash or gift cards. Do surveys or programs like this. Join a Freecycle or pay it forward fb group. You can give and get items for free. Do exchanges with your neighbors or friends. Trade work..cooking for babysitting etc. Email companies for coupons or join their emails lists. Meal plan. I use my credit card to pay bills, but make the payment right away. I have a few hundred dollars saved up on points to use for Christmas. DO research before buying big purchases. Visit the library for free books and to rent free dvds. Check out your local area for free or cheap events. Plant a garden or at least 2 or 3 of your favorite veggies. Repurpose items..old shirts can be used as cleaning rags, glass jars as food containers etc.

    Coupons AND clerance

  • #210569

    I’m always saving money! Everything I want to buy (except groceries) I always look first in my local area using the “yard sale” type of apps. I usually find what I’m looking for. If I don’t find it, then I look on other websites and compare to Walmart ( if they have it). Looking online also helps you find things quickly because it will say what isle the item is on. For groceries I look at all the flyers (some have exclusive coupons not given in the store ad)& compare prices. Then plan my grocery trip making a circle to save time and gas, & I always make sure I go shopping during the week day if I can help it. It also saves more time and gas not getting stuck in San Diego traffic.

    I have to say cutting coupons locating coupons on the different store websites and sometimes there are different stores that use the same coupons.
    Unplug appliances that do not need to be on 24 hours a week
    Choose Netflix and other programs compared to Cable or the other services or even watch clips on Youtube most are under $20 a month or free,

    I’m sure this has been said but coupon. After having my daughter couponing helped so much. Now it’s a way of life lol. If you have an instagram there are some amazing couponers willing to show you the ropes. Facebook has couponing groups as well as amazon promo code group. Swagbucks is awesome to help bring in a little money. Can also find the best swagbucks deals from couponers on Instagram. Always buy clearance. After Christmas I always go for the paper plates. Saves on the water bill. You can buy your meat in family size and divide it up. During the day I hardly have the lights on. Look at your power company peak hours to see when its cheapest to run the washer and dryer. Also join as many reward programs like at grocery stores. Some have it where you spend so much on groceries you save on gas. Join cashback websites like ebates and top cash. Hopefully this helps someone and sorry if I’m all over the place lol
