I found a silicone trivet that goes in an instant pot in a cart full of sale items at the grocery store. It had no tag on it so the cashier charged me 75 cents!

I am all about saving money. One thing I am doing to save money is make my morning cup of coffee at home. What a saving that is. Buying a cup of coffee every day can really add up. I am also making my own cleaning supplies using a lot of vinegar. It is amazing how much one can save doing that. I have also talked my hubby into eating at home more often. It is just the two of us and we got into the habit of eating out a lot. Fixing meals at home saves a lot.

I saved some money this week by buying a whole pineapple rather than a precut one. It's amazing the price difference. Plus I find they taste better and I get more when I cut them myself. This was my first whole pineapple and I will definitely be buying them that way from now on.

Lori & Krista well done on saving money. I saved $24 plus some change on this week's groceries by shopping the sales. Several items went into the pantry to be used in the coming weeks/months.

Love hearing all these great money saving ideas! I started using old washcloths, that I keep in a basket, instead of paper towels in my kitchen. They are easily washed with other dark items and then restock the basket. At first it took some getting use to, but now I think I like the washcloths much better because they absorb better. They were just filling up a kitchen drawer and it was a great way to be more "green" and to save on paper towels.

Great idea Winnie. The price of paper towels has increased so much. I hate to pay the price for them. Yesterday I even started using cloth napkins instead of paper ones. My husband is always using paper plates to save on dishes and I told him we would not be doing that anymore. I love to sit down to a table that uses real plates. It makes the atmosphere more enjoyable. It also saves money.

I baked some cookies this week and my son started laughing at me. I wondered what was so funny and he told me he couldn't believe I still wiped crumbs from my waxed paper and saved it to reuse. I had done that all my life. When I was a child my parents were poor and mom always said, " Waste not, want not". I took that to heart and have always tried to be fugal. I had to start laughing, too. I do reuse waxed paper and aluminum foil as well
