    I watch the electricity consumption in my home carefully…also, my husband rigged up a rain collection system using 2 55-gal barrels, a spigot, and plastic pipe so I have ‘free’ water for all my outdoor plants and gardening use.

  3. Lana Hood says:

    To be thrifty, we do a “clean out the pantry” week at the end of each month whereby no new groceries are purchased until we have creatively consumed the fridge/freezer and cupboard contents.

    Instead of donating to the local second hand store, I donate clothes to kids at my daughters day care who come from low income families. Essentially I am allowing someone else to be thrifty.

    I do the obvious; I buy all my jeans and most of my other outer clothes from thrift shops like Goodwill and PTA Thrift (supports local schools).

    For “Date Night” we send the kids to their rooms early, make our own meal and either rent a movie or get one free from the library. Not only do we save on the cost of the meal and movie, but also don’t use any gas!

  7. Sara says:

    To be thrifty I never waste food, freeze it before it gets old and throw left overs in freezer for easy meals later. You wouldn’t believe how much food you save if you never throw waste away. I also plan meals around what’s left in my fridge. Ie: Made salsa chicken, made left overs into quesadillas and again more left overs into chicken cassarole.
