Frugal Ways To Save

May 23, 2006

Jar full of coins with the word "save" on the outside.I started reading about frugal living about 9 years ago. My main reason was to save us money for my husband and I who were living on our own for the first time. Now we just bought our first house (2 months ago) so I'm trying to learn even more about frugal living. Here are some things that I do to save money.


There are so many ways to save, you just have to start looking and see what is good for you. There are things I plan to do to save in the future like putting up a clothes line in our yard and planting my first food garden (I hope, I am not a green thumb here). I will learn new ways to help us save more money now that we have our own place. During the years, these ideas have saved us money and I hope this helps someone else!

Every year I try to do a few more things to live more frugal and eco-friendly. In 2010, when we moved, we did not get a dryer. We use the lines in the backyard or hang inside. We have not used any paper napkins or paper towels and do not drink soda pop.

Here are some frugal ideas, we use in our home. Always buy used when we can. We visit many garage sales, thrift shops and online resources like eBay.

I am 65 and on SSD. That means money is always tight. Hence the name Poor But Proud. Most of you know me on here and if you think of my tips, they are all based on saving money.
