Good Debt vs Bad Debt

Trade Services

Skip the dryer no matter what the season. Hang it outside in the nice weather and inside near the fire in the cold weather. Look for drying racks at thrift shops and garage sales.

Hang Your Laundry

Create a stockpile of items you normally eat. Older generations still do this (and so do I). Find a space in your home to add shelving. It could be a closet, a spare room, or a basement.

Cook at home as often as possible instead of dining out. This is a great way to save money on food while enjoying healthier meals free from preservatives and additives.

Cook At Home

Look for sales and use coupons when grocery shopping. Every week the grocery store has a sale. This can help you stock up on your favorite foods, reduce your food budget, and save some serious cash.

Look For Sales

Raise chickens for eggs, meat (or both), and goats for milk and cheese. Consider pigs and cows if you have enough property and live in rural areas.
