When I was thinking about ways our family saves money, three things came to mind right away.
1. I have a lot of landscaping and use a lot of mulch. I purchase mulch from a local tree trimmer. He delivers a HUGE truck load for $40. It saves me money and a lot of time.
2. There are a number of stores that price match. When shopping at Scheel's, I always look up the price online, and the clerks are always happy to match any lower prices I find. I get great customer service, shop local, and save money.
3. Date night no longer has to be a Saturday night. If we go out to dinner, we take advantage of local deals during the week and save a bundle.
