Quick Tip: Entertaining At Home...

Entertain at home on a budget by having people over a little later so that you can serve snacks instead of a whole meal!  Even better, ask everyone coming to bring a snack to share.  You will have a wide variety and no-one will feel like they had to break the bank to have a good time. :)

Quick Tip: Rechargeable Batteries...

They may end up slightly more expensive at first than regular batteries, but rechargeable batteries can be re-used hundreds of times before they run out of life.  They are especially great for digital camera's etc. as they keep a charge quite a bit longer than regular batteries.  I do suggest getting one with a 15 minute charger, because no-one wants to wait hours if batteries run out.  Also, never mix regular batteries with rechargeables!

Quick Tip: Waste Not, Want Not...

How often have you thrown away things in your refrigerator or freezer simply because they have expired?  Try and incorporate the foods in your refrigerator in to your menu's and keep track of what you have left.

Got a tomato, half a cucumber and some onion?  Add some oil & vinegar to make a simple salad.  Got some lunch meat and cheese that needs using?  Chop it up and use it to top baked potatoes! 

If you end up with lots of bits and pieces, why not have an "DIY Lunch" on Saturday where you put all the stuff that needs using up quick out on the counter and let everyone create a buffet plate?

Insist that the old food is used up before new food gets opened.  Even better, don't go shopping till it's done!

Quick Tip: Brown Bag It...

One way to cut spending quickly is to quit eating lunch out with your co-workers or friends.  It's fun to go out with them for an hour and shoot the breeze, but even once a week can rob your budget of  $50 a month or more!

Be creative about lunch time and you can still enjoy the company without breaking the bank.  Have everyone bring their lunch and meet outside for a picnic or do a mini-potluck where you each bring something baked from home to share. :)
