Taking the Scenic Route

With all of the talk of “tightening our belts”, I thought I would share some links.

With all of the talk of “tightening our belts”, I thought I would share some links.

We’ve been poor for a long time, so all the tips floating around on how to cut the budget have me amused, to say the least. (because we don’t have most of the luxuries they advise cutting anyway). However, I do have a pretty good list of links to help you discover your inner cheapness frugalness.

For a lot of cheap recipes and other advice, the Hillbilly Housewife is one of the best links out there.

Another good article from Zen Habits. I actually browse this blog every so often because it just has some neat ideas.

And, no frugal list would be complete with a link to Tightwad Gazette. You could buy the books, but that would sort of miss the point, wouldn’t it. (if you are one of those organized people that actually are able to remember to return the books on time and not incur embarrassing fines, they usually have the books at the library too)

    I have been doing a lot more crockpot meals and hanging clothes outside instead of drying them in the dryer. On top of that, our hot water heater needs a new little black box, so it will heat up and then die. Then, we have to go down to the basement (which involves turning a winch handle to open the heavy basement door). Fall is when we don’t need either AC or heat, so between all of what we have done intentionally and unintentionally, we cut the light bill in half. Of course, that will change once it gets cold again!

  • Call them rules or call them limits, good ones, I believe, have this in common: They serve reasonable purposes; they are practical and within a child’s capability; they are consistent; and they are an expression of loving concern. — Fred Rogers
