Save 20 Dollars A Month, Fun Post

So I was thinking, I do that sometimes, and thought we could do a fun little post together. I have been discussing with my children ways to save money. Mostly just to see what they would say, and really they aren't willing to give up much to save money, imagine that. So I thought we could see what everyone can come up with. The goal is to save 20 dollars a month. Come up with two ways, and add it to the list. Try not to repeat what others have already put up. It is meant to be fun, and get us all thinking.

Here are mine, I have three, because DJ came up with one.

1- DJ said he could do his chores for free, rather than two dollars a week. I was pleased he was willing to offer this, though I am sure a revolt would come eventually.

2- Wash your clothes, and dishes in cold water, rather than hot water. This really does work. If you can't do the cold water in dishes, just go for the clothes.

3- If you eat out a lot, cut it down to only once a week. You will be surprised how much eating out really costs. We like to eat out, because I really hate to cook, but we have cut it back to once a week, or once every other week.

OK now it is your turn. Share your thoughts. I can not be the only frugal, or cheap as my husband calls me, woman in the world.

A great way to save money is to use coupons if you have the patience for it and combine the coupons with something that is on sale. If I use my coupons like I am supposed to I can easily save way more than $20 a month. I loved your ideas for saving money Ms. Melissa.

I used to clip the coupons, sort the coupons, make a list, and then promptly leave them at home. I finally gave up.
