Times are tough, most people have said this recently or have heard somebody say this. I am not immune. So I have been looking for more ways to save money without giving up my ideals. I want to buy locally grown, organic foods. I want to make those fancy recipes I find everywhere with the fancy ingredients I’ve never heard of before. I want, I want, I want to be able to afford all that. Reality, however, is different. I have been watching the price of milk steadily rise (my husband and I both drink milk still), as well as the price of eggs. We are lucky enough to have a friend who had chickens and ducks and turkeys, unfortunalty a coyote or such ate most of the chickens. So now I am back to buying eggs. 😦
At any rate I want to share this with anybody who might be interested: http://finances.msn.com/saving-money-ideas. There are links from there to articles on specific ways to save money.
Best of luck!
