    I calculated that bringing lunch to work every day probably saves me around $2500 a year. Once I realized I could take my family on vacation with those savings, it was easy to stay motivated!

    Lots of great tips! Another one of my favorites is to start plants from seeds. You save a ton of money and you can plant more interesting varieties.

    Also the dates on food are BEST BY dates – save money by not automatically throwing things away that are likely perfectly fine.

    Love getting movies from the library! If you play it right and put your name on the ‘hold’ list, you can get movies as soon as they are available on DVD. I may have to try your sourdough starter – I love that type of bread. Been experimenting with kombucha starters and growing our own wheatgrass, so why not add one more! 🙂
