I noticed the other day that my posting (both blogs and pictures) has slowed down to a trickle. I just don't seem to have much inspiration as of late for new and exciting things. I wonder why that is?
Oh yeah...it's because we haven't been anywhere!
Actually, that's not entirely true, but with the "economic downturn," we've definitely had our share of nights at home lately. And while that's not altogether a bad thing -- Dave and I have had downtime to hang out, watch hockey, relax, read -- it doesn't provide much in the realm of blog fodder.
And so here we are. In the void of other interesting topics, here are some of the things that we have been trying to do to cut back a little:
1. Eat more at home
2. Switch to energy-saving light bulbs
3. Cut coupons (I am always amazed at those people who claim that they can shop for a family of 8 with $20. I suppose that with a little more time and effort, I might be able to do more than I am, but so far, about $10 off with coupons is about the best I've managed to do. The quest continues....)
4. Utilize cheaper "alternatives" (Red Box, store brands, the library, etc.)
What tips for saving do you have?
