Okay. So I'm a sucker for savings. When I found "Penny Pinching: Advice for the Tightwads," I knew the article by Sandra McElwaine was speaking to me. Some of the ideas were obvious like "walk or take the bus to work" and some were a wee bit more inventive, "split your used Christmas cards and send them the next year as postcards!"
Here are a few of the more novel ideas:
1. Put money aside each time you shower, run the dishwasher or wash and dry your clothes.
2. Buy unisex clothes for your kids.
3. Exchange clothes at a "potluck" party.
4. Wear panty-hose only when you have to.
