We asked our community to share their stories every week, and picked our favorites to win! Here are just a few of the winning entries:
Do you donate used clothes, sell them, toss them, or turn them into something with a new use?
Do you make your own lunch? Share your favorite frugal lunch recipe!
Who were your money mentors when you were growing up?
“I donate most used clothes to Goodwill. I also have several formal gowns
I’ve actually had success renting out — I’ve nearly recouped the
costs of the original items by doing this!”
“…put your favorite colorful raw veggies in the bottom of your preferred quart size container, add protein source and cover with the amount of dressing you like. Put the greens on top. Shake or toss everything at lunch time. The greens stay crispy, the other stuff is pleasantly marinated, and you didn’t need to have another little container for the dressing.”
“My grandpa lived through the depression and knew how to stretch a penny… He made a written book of his life and his many stories help you realize how much he
struggled. This book is precious now to share with his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.”
