Making and Saving Money!

My latest and greatest find in the neighborhood trash search was a Britax Car Seat. I washed the denim cover and sold in on Craigslist for $50. I also sold my old Washer (with disclosure about its liking of socks) for a $100.

I love taking a glance at the neighbors recycling bins too on my Monday morning runs (I know I could just have the Sunday newspaper delivered each week but then I would feel guilty about my lack of recycling desires). I can usually come up with two or three Saturday coupons bags. I have been known to rummage if I absolutely have too. I think would make a super good Hobo. I think the neighbors already think I am...

But with those coupons I can save a mint. In the past 6 months I have cut our grocery bill by at least 60%.

Here's to more valuable trash and more triple coupons!

You are an inspiration Heather...I can't believe you sold that carseat for $50, that's awesome!
