Let's Help Each Other Out
Tomorrow I will be posting from our Tightwad Gazette III reading.
This afternoon I was reading some of the comments on my site.
Rose over at Simple Everyday Living posted some comments as to my pantry and the amount of meat I have in my freezer for a 6 month supply. I will do my best this week to follow up with the answer to that question. As many people know, I am a big believer of buying items on sale and stocking up.
In the meantime, I know there are people that read my blog and have great ideas of their own on saving money. Some are on my blog roll. If you're not on my blogroll and you want to share some money saving tips, leave a comment with your blog link and I will put it on my blogroll. Sometimes you think that no one will want to do some extreme things to save money, but I am here to tell you that even extreme ideas are welcome.
Just use your imagination. I really believe that people need to come to the realization that we need to view our money as a precious commodity, be better stewards of what God has given us and that it is okay to adopt a "Great Depression like" mentality of stretching our resources.
Then I think it would be wonderful if you would challenge yourself to learn one new skill over the next few weeks. It could be that you don't cook much and need to learn. For me it will be gardening and canning. It is too late to plant this year, but I can start to read and study the subject so I can be prepared to garden next year. Perhaps I should be digging up some ground in my backyard this fall to prepare my garden for the spring. I have no idea.
So post your blog links and let's help each other out.
