Haven't done a piggy back post in awhile....
Today Ms. Crunchy had an interesting topic- How do you save money ? She linked to this great post from the simple dollar. And for the most part I agree with them both. But I have a few of my own to add in the fray
REPAIR- If I had said it once, I will say it again- Don't throw out if you can fix it save the money and do it. I just had to fix my reefer- turns out all that was wrong was a corroded thermostat. Simply clean off the thermostat! I found this out asking questions of the HVAC guy at work - our HVAC guys also do refrigeration!
- Conserve- saving water, electricity, gas is a money saver, too
- Quit Smoking- Works for me. I saved enough the first four months to buy my bike.
- Pay off your credit- self explanatory
- Christmas time is coming start making your gifts!
