Free advice!

Tips I've gotten from frugal friends on how to be frugal:

  • use what you have in the pantry, buy food when it's a good deal (and won't go bad before you have a chance to use it)
  • give yourself a cash budget for the week and don't use cards to purchase anything. When you are out of cash, you are out of money... until next week.
  • put money in savings before you even look at it, better yet set up an automatic transfer
  • get a CSA or veggie box, you'll save on veggies (be ware of getting more than you can eat!)
  • make soup!
What are your suggestions or tips? Leave a comment below with any additional suggestions for ways you (or people you know) are cheap.
