Ways to Stretch your Family's Budget

Hello Everyone! I am new to this forum and would like to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Mahoney and I live in the westcoast of Canada. I am a mother of three and a creative spirit. I have had to learn how to stretch my dollars in the past and believe that a dollar saved is a dollar earned.

I use coupons and shop consignment. I breastfed my babies (saving monet there was a bonus), and have cloth diapered my youngest.

What are some ways that you save your family money?

When people offer to help, LET THEM!
Babies cry. It's what they do. Sometimes you can figure out how to help them through a moment, sometimes you can't. Babies also have moments where they manage to get their urine and excrement on stuff. These moments are NEVER convenient. Nobody is good at being a mom all the time. So, when people offer to help, LET THEM! Did I say that before?
