Thrifty Tips for Families

Tips and ideas to save you money!

Oh Baby it’s Cold

Often people who are moving into smaller accommodations have older furniture or appliances in great shape that they can sell to you (garage sales, private sale, etc.) Keep your ears open!  When my parents moved from a big house that they had raised us six children in, they sold their old 22 cubic foot deep freezer to a friend of mine for $20. This mom of four was thrilled to have a freezer to store summer produce and baking in, and buying meat on sale in larger quantities was now a possibility!

Do you have a large freezer that’s only partially used?

Trade some space in your freezer with a friend for some homemade bread twice a week, or some pears off her tree in the summer, or something else you value and she has lots of!  Get really creative and make an offer! You never know what you’ll be able to trade or barter for.
