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?

I peel carrots. In the U.S. you can buy carrots already peeled for about $1.50/lb, or you can buy them with the peels on for about $.80/lb.

Just ask your sweet sweet hubby to find out ways o earn more. :-)
