How Are YOU Trying To Beat a Tough Economy?

Posted on | May 7, 2012 | 3 Comments

By now you’ve seen my posts on how OUR family is trying to beat a tough economy. I’m thrilled with the success we’ve been having. We’ve watched our electric bill drop each month (though we’re anticipating a small increase when we start using the air conditioner come the scalding months of a Southern summer). I’ve been planning groceries & menus very carefully. I’ve been trying new recipes, and for the most part, grocery shopping hasn’t made me cry lately.

My friend, Sher had this wow-some idea that I should do a bloggy linky or challenge and invite everyone to share economical ideas. I’m game.

So, now it’s your turn! Enter below and let everyone know how YOU are trying to beat a tough economy!

Here are the rules:

-> Be sure your post has to do with some form of frugal living. The possibilities are really endless. Maybe you have a burger recipe that takes the place of eating out? Are you washing your clothes a different way? Have you taken up menu planning to ease your spending? Bartering for much needed (or just wanted) items?

-> Link directly to your blog post. This makes it easier for someone to find the exact post. If you wow them with that post, they WILL read the rest of your blog, too 🙂

-> Please link back to this post (or posts), within your post, so others can find the same treasures you have. I’ve made a button if you prefer to use that. The button will link to ALL posts in the linky party. Ever. Just copy it & paste it to your post.

-> Click on & visit some of the other entrant’s blogs. Comment to them if you feel moved (not mandatory, but very nice to do)

-> Think of this as a potluck. You get to bring your one thing (or 3), but you get to enjoy many others offerings. Speaking of which, feel free to link to up to 3 of your posts.

Ready? Go.

    Thank you for hosting this! Our frugal ways may be more extreme then some, but times are coming that are going to require our approach.

    I have the same predicament! My electricity bill’s been increasing because I had to turn on the AC due to the summer heat.
