I think about ways to save money a lot. It's one of the reasons we're doing what we're doing. But truth be told, there are a lot of ways out there to save money, couponing being one of the most popular. I tried a bit of that, but like many people, can rarely find coupons for items - especially food - that I actually buy.
So I thought I'd start a series about frugal living to encourage others in leading healthy, full lives without going broke. I'm cheating a bit on this first installment, because I recently submitted a guest post to Money Saving Mom and am providing a link to it below. "Homestead Where You're Planted" is the original title, and will suffice as the title to this post as I mull over a catchy title for the series. Sorry - I'm spent right now. Let's just say that running over a pothole and ruining two tires is not going to be a money-saving topic I address.
But at least we can (grudgingly) have the repairs made, thanks to other ways we find to save.
