Family Belt-tightening Tips – Share Yours!

OK everyone,

We are in a recession. Not just any recession, a big, long, really bad one. Many of us have not lived through anything similar.  So, it’s time to start tightening our proverbial belts!

I thought it would be a great idea if we helped each other out by sharing our bestest belt tightening ideas.  That way, we can ride this thing out together.

So, what cost saving ideas do you have?

I’ll start with a few of mine.

  1. Buy cheapest gas you can find and use an octane booster to bring it back up to high octane levels.  The octane booster will cost you $5-7 bucks but you’ll save much more if you don’t buy the premium gas.
  2. Go to Costco or Sam’s Club and look for good deals on food you can eat at home for snacks. We find that we spend a ton of money on snacks for the kids.  Buying in bulk will save you some bucks.
  3. Make sure your tires have the proper tire pressure. You’ll get more gallons from your tank.

All the best!
