I’ve been thinking about the upcoming Frugal Cooking carnival and thought it might be fun to share some other money saving tips now and then as well.
My first tip is a simple one: THE GREAT WATER JUG. We spend a fair bit of time running back and forth to various places– I’ve got three kids in soccer right now, as well as the usual number of doctor and dentist appointments, shopping trips, etc. I always keep a half-gallon water jug in the van, as well as a few sturdy plastic cups. Often kids will bring their own water bottles on outings as well. But someone inevitably forgets their water, so the big jug helps thirsty kids be happier when out and about. I also use it instead of buying drinks on the occasional busy day when we do the McDonald’s dollar menu for a quick dinner.
How about you? What’s one simple thing you do that saves your family a bit of money on a regular basis?
