We are down to one paycheck soon, so we know we need to start pinching pennies. Since my job is now being a stay-at-home mom, frugality is now at the top of my "to do" list. Here's a few of the ways I'm going to be a frugal Mommy starting... NOW:
No more ziplock bags! Use our plethora of storage containers, bag clips, and the plastic "wraps" pictured below (that I can't think of what they're called, but you find packs of them at Dollar General for $1). They look like shower caps and they work so much better than saran wrap that fails to stick to anything but itself. Plus these are easy to use and reuse, because they are so easy to clean, and they're so cheap to replace. This is also an environmentally friendly way to reduce plastic usage.
