In tough times we are all looking for ways to save money. Our family is no different. We have discovered that sometimes sacrificing a bit of convenience is worth it in order to save a bit of coin. For instance in the past we have posted about making your own bread, and where to get money saving coupons to keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket.
In the past few weeks we have had the opportunity to experience first hand a few different ways that we could potentially save some money by doing some things ourselves rather than paying someone to do it for us. We went to a chicken auction and investigated raising poultry for the eggs, making our own strawberry jam, growing our own vegetables on our deck, and even cutting own hair. For each of these we have had to ask ourselves a question: “Is it worth the trouble?”
In the next week we will post what we discovered about all of these but we would love to hear from you.
Let us know what you are doing to save money in these tough times that you may not have considered doing in the past. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org perhaps we will post your comment as a guest post on www.AffluentPauper.com. We look forward to hearing your great ideas.
