Re: Help me save money
Great idea Pyxell,
Itís a bit more difficult for me to help since Iím in Canada but do you people have online selling places that are exclusively for selling things either new or used Thats completely free?
Here we have kijiji and Craigslist? You can post the things you wish to sell for free and even lets you post lots of pictures.
If you donít want these people coming to your house then plan to meet them at a mall parking lot or some place thatís busy.
Go through every room in your house and get rid of duplicates and things you no longer need or use. Youíll need to do this when you eventually downsize anyway.
Another idea is to find a creative niche( hobby ) and sell your stuff on Etsy. My husband and I sold about 300 items in less than two years. It was good extra money which we used to purchase new windows which we installed ourselves.
It cost little to list your stuff and Etsy takes a percentage of your sales and itís not a lot. The software Etsy uses is really user friendly so itís easy to manage an online store. It would be especially helpful for your man. That must be incredibly difficult for him.
Another thing you can do which you have already started is to look through all the food sales, find the best deals and plan your weekly menus based on whatís on sale. Cook in abundance , label and freeze for later.
Make it a game to see how little you can spent each week.
Get a change jar and save every penny.
Use coupons whenever and wherever you can.
Price compare with everything.
Buy second hand clothes which I know you already do.
