Tips for money saving moms

July 62011

I really like about.com. It always has some great tips for moms. I came across its tips for money saving moms. I’m pretty sure that you can save some serious money with them. Lets see a couple of tips from real moms:

  • You can clean the majority of surfaces in your home with vinegar and baking soda. It costs a lot less and smells better.
  • You can create visual aids for your activities using cereal boxes, scrap paper (the unprinted side is as good as a new piece of paper), and all sorts of packaging materials that you can collect from your monthly groceries. I think it’s a brilliant idea. It’s good for the environment too!
  • Make your own bread – tastes better and you know what it’s made from.
  • Dish soap can be used at half strength and be used to refill the pump soap in the bathroom.  - I never thought about this before but it’s a great idea too.
  • Buy things online – they often offer free shipping and great online discounts.
  • Don’t spend your money on expensive and useless toys for your kids. Be creative and i.e. make paper mache at home. You will only need some  shredded paper waste, cheap white flour, school glue and some tempera.
  • Stock up at sales – you’ll definitely save money in this way.

Frugal parent tips

May 312011

How to be a frugal parent? What are the best tips to be frugal but give everything to your kids?

I came across this site called The Simple Dollar where ultra-frugal parents share their money saving tips. Here they are:

  • Use cloth wipes instead of paper wipes: buy towels at yard sales, wash them, cut them up and use them as cloth wipes. You can use them when you change the diapers or cleaning up faces. You can wash them and re-use them. You’ll save a lot of money and on top of that you protect the planet too.
  • Use different spices: when you make basic food from meat, beans, vegetable or fruit you can make it tastier when you spice it.
  • Buy open-ended and imagination based toys: they cost less and they help your children to use their imaginations.
  • Buy end-rolls of newspaper what you can use as wrapping paper and the kids can draw on it too.
  • Cut their hair at home: when kids are smaller you can cut their hair at home. When they get older they may become picky:)
