7 Ways to Cut Household Budget
With money tight everywhere for everyone, this article gives 7 ways you may not have thought of to cut back. Many of us immediately think to eat out less or buy less stuff, but this tells you how to look at places you may not have thought of, like auto and home insurance. I also love that it covers eating, shopping, and cooking tips for having less wasted food. It seems like one or more of these tips can help everyone at a time when we could all use a little help in the pocketbook.
I have incorporated all of these already. Another way to cut expenses... make your own cleaning products (can look up online), look for low cost bulk recipes (also found online)... I just made a stew/soup last night that cost me $10 to make and got 5 family meals out of it. I have a family of 6 currently.
This is a re-awakening for the whole family, looking for ways to save. It is really all about challenging ourselves to what is ESSENTIALLY NECESSARY vs wants.
