Last week, I asked "How does your family regularly save money?". The poll is closed and the results are in. Here they are...
How does your family regularly save money?
A) Using coupons.
B) Cooking from scratch.
C) Shopping at consignment and/or second hand stores.
D) Using reusable products.
E) Carpooling whenever possible.
F) Buying in bulk.
It turns out that the majority of our readers C) Shop at consignment and/or second hand stores, and D) Use reusable products. In fact, they were tied for first place. The second runner up was A) Using coupons.
For those of you that aren't really interested in cooking from scratch, a slow cooker is a great investment. You can also check out our recipes to get some ideas. Also, check out the clubs like BJ's, Costco, and Sam's Club to find some great deals buying in bulk. I know most of these bulk clubs offer Free 30 Day Trial Memberships, so give them a call to get yours.
