4 Responses to 7 Ways to Save Money at Home

  1. You can also try cooking exclusively at home, too. Our biggest variable expense was our food, and cooking at home really was a great way to save.

  2. I have to agree on that one. For most of us, eating out is a slow bleed. Relatively small amounts of money spent over a month can seem inconsequential. But $25 here and $50 there, and before you know it, you’ve spent $300 – $400 in a single month. It’s not always obvious because you aren’t sitting down to make a payment for the full amount. And then of course, there are the myriad justifications for eating out, that make it sound perfectly reasonable at the time you do it.

  3. Fantastic article, and thanks for listing the money back apps! I’ll check those out.

    Another great option for families, if you are dropping cable, is Pureflix. It’s safe for kids to explore, is very similar to Netflix, and can be cast to chromecast! My kids use Drive Thru History for homeschool history supplement. It’s available through Pureflix, as are quite a few other educational materials. It’s so much better than cable, and safer than Netflix for kids.

  4. Hi Kristen – Haven’t heard of Pureflix but it sounds interesting – if it isn’t too expensive. I was wondering what happened to Drive Thru History, I liked that show but haven’t seen it around lately.
