The best way to save money is not to spend. It sounds so simple and IT IS!!
The best way not to spend is to make good use, very good use of everything you have, whether this is food, clothes, books or other possessions, and that is what is at the forefront of my mind for the duration of this year ... and beyond.
So, with this in mind I am using every part of the vegetables I pick, in this case the stalks were chopped to go in the soup that the leaves were added to later ...
... and I'm reading the books on my bookshelves in preference to buying new ones or going to the library.
I'm also wearing my clothes until they are unwearable ..... a T shirt developed serious holes yesterday after I caught it on something. The fabric was that thin it couldn't be mended and would have been pretty useless even as a duster (of which I have lots) so it went on the fire last night. It burned really well and gave us ten minutes of good heat .... useful right until the end.
Today is a No Spend Day
