    Less than 90 minutes to save around $140 WOW!!!
    We spend some time infront of TV or chatting with friends when we want to kill time. Some of us spend hours and hours to write hubs and blogs and do marketing to get some dollars "may be 10 or sometimes less or more" Read more
    Why don't we use our time to save money instead of getting more money!!! Good idea, isn't it!!!

    Ok, we just need to know how to do that. You can use my recipes or search for more suitable recipes  for you. Don't give up. Sometimes it works from the first time, and other times it needs us to try once more. So my advice to you is to try small amounts first, then you can buy big amounts of raw materials to use it for long times. This will be more economic too.

    Trying to keep down the credit card debt by using little cash for buying food, gas when absolutely needed.  Recycle your plastic bottles, cans, glass at your local supermarket for deposit refund. Food pantries are available (though they also are all in dire need of donations from those that can help) for basic non-perishable items.  Check out the flyers for the big sales for groceries/retail stores; be sure to have coupons.  People from every demographic go to Goodwill or Salvation Army to find clothing, or go to a consignment store.  Sell items you don't need on craigslist, ebay or amazon.  Re-use ziploc bags, aluminum foil after washing/drying.   For recreation, go to a museum, park, picnic,free concerts, hike, look on line or local newspaper for things to do for free on the weekends.  Go to the library for books, videos.
