The Best Things in Life Are Free!

Everyone knows how hard it is to make ends meet these days especially with gas prices creeping up with milk prices following suit. I say we go back to the days of bartering and trade. I get my best freebies from friends and family that are redecorating their home or just trying to declutter a room.

I donate my clothes to clothing banks instead of Goodwill because I feel better knowing my donation will go to the homeless and those in need. I am looking for a clothing bank in my new neighborhood to help those in need that live in my community. Clearing out a few closets is only a small benefit of knowing a child could be using your daughters' (too small for them) coats for warmth on a cold winter night outside or if they are lucky, in a car.

Since I don't have a lot of money to give, I try to donate my reusable items and time whenever I can. When times were rough for me some time ago, these same places (clothing and food banks) made a huge difference for me and my girls. I think it's only fair to pay it forward. 

I always let people know that if they have stuff they don't need to keep me in mind. If I can't use the item, I usually know someone who does!

Recycle Used Dryer Sheets and Save!

I was doing laundry late last night and saw all of the used dryer sheets in the trash and thought they still had some life left. As I took them out of the can, I used one to dust off the dryer. That went well, so I went ahead and cleaned off the washer, too. Resolving to get some dryer balls that I saw at Rite Aid for $3.00, I wondered what else I could use these little sheets for? Besides using them a few times in the dryer, you can use dryer sheets to get ink off of your hands or walls. They make great dust cloths as well.

However, the dryer balls are a better value as long as the noise doesn't bother you. My laundry room is in the garage, so it won't interfere with movie night or quiet time in my household.
