101 Tips to Help Your Budget (and YOU) at Home – #55, 56 & 57

101 Ways to Help Your Budget and You at Home


55. Shop at Home

CWAHM reader Tricia Kongos shares that she often challenges herself to shop from her own pantry for dinner ideas. It’s easy to think “there’s nothing here to eat” when in reality, our cupboards are packed full. Challenge yourself once a week to use what you have on hand to create a meal.

 

56. Buy Used
“Buy used wherever you can! There is no shame in buying clothes from a second hand store. Heck, there’s some really nice stuff in a lot of them! The same can be said for shoes, furniture, home decor, movies, video games and systems, sports equipment and whatever else you can think of! I’d say a good 50% of items in my home are second hand. Clothes would be close to 80% (especially my kids!) and all of my kids have at least one pair of second hand shoes. Remember, second hand does not necessarily mean shabby-almost all of the second hand stuff I get is name brand-most people are surprised that it is second hand! Also remember that consignment stores are not the only place to get gently used items; I’ve found the internet and social media sites to be great resources for this!”

57. Find Cheap Gas
There are websites (gaspricewatch.com) and apps (GasBuddy) available today that can help you find the lowest priced gas in your area. It’s also advised to fill your tank early in the week – gas prices tend to raise as the weekend approaches.
