Today I am going to give you some tips and ideas for living frugally. It seems like we can all use more tips these days. I'm open to learning about anything that can help me save a dollar. My husband and I are getting closer to retirement, although we still have some time left, and want to save every bit of money we can. So, here are a few idea for you that I have found around the internet and implemented and some other things that we do as well.
This first one is from Life as You Live It and something that I really love. I got one of these jars for each of our kids and one for us as well and I taped the simple chart Kaylie has for you to print out. It is a great way to save $1378 over the course of a year. My kids thought it was a great idea. I didn't actually give it to them until the end of the second week, so I added the money for the first two weeks. The idea here is that you add money each week, following what ever week of the year you are in. For example week 1 you add $1 and week 25 you add $25.
