    I once had a job where I had to contact businesses for donations. Some were awesome such as Coca Cola company but others said exactly what you did…We have already planned out our charitable donations for the year. It is now what I say. I wish I could help out everyone but I can't.

    I don’t know. Can she taste the lettuce? The pieces were so tiny. Just wondering.

    Great tips! My husband & I have been together 16 years, we have made financial mistakes and we're frivolous. We have paid down almost all of our debt and now we try to practice frugality, me more so then him. How do we stay united in our frugal journey, he likes to spend, I like to save. Any advice for couples?? I look forward to yr videos and advice. Joni wny

    Clear shower curtains over windows makes great insulation but still let in light. Can be packed away at end of season 🙂

    I don't particularly like shopping at Goodwill, but every Monday they have a .99 cent sale on everything that was the previous week's color. Say, if last week the color was blue (which would've been 50 percent off), then on the following Monday, it would be .99 cents! The best time to shop for fall/winter is in the spring and summer and vice versa. I've gotten wool coats, sweaters, jeans, etc. for 99 cents a piece! Can't beat that!

    I wanted to make zucchini boats. The recipe called for ground beef. I went to the butcher counter in the meat department and got 1/4 # of ground round. It was around $1.80. It was the perfect amount. The recipe called for 1 pound but adding extra veggies to replace the meat was just as tasty and more economical

    I started buying cloth napkins at thrift stores a few years ago and that’s what I use instead of paper napkins

    This was a really great video. Two things I will start doing is saving the watermelon juice and hanging my potatoes in a mesh bag.
    One thing I just started doing that is saving me a ton of money, and is great for the environment, is not buying bottles of Propel flavored water. I found the flavor packets at BJs and now mix it in my own container. I also add it to 24 ounces of water instead of the 16 it says to use on the package. Price of 24 pack of bottles was $12.47. Price of a box of 36 flavor packets was $6.99.

    Hi Emmy and Paul, I haven't seen a video about cleaning products. Do you buy them from the store or do you make your own?

    The snowball bush in our yard is over100 years old. Branches grow up as old ones die. I have a picture of my mother standing in front of it with her first baby in her arms which would have been in 1928 and it's in full bloom then.

    Wonderful frugal tips and tricks! Always good when you do these reminder videos. I just bought some silicone gallon bags, sandwich bags and snack bags so I can stop the use of single use plastic bags. These bags can be used in the freezer, the microwave and they are dishwasher safe. I got a pack of 6 each. I want to try to use less plastic overall and most definitely want something that will last years vs a couple of uses then it gets tossed.

    I save small amounts of leftover veggies in the freezer. When I get a bunch I make leftover soup. I cook a couple of slices of bacon and any leftover meat for 15-20 minutes in my Instant Pot. Let the pressure come down when you are busy doing something else. Then I fill the IP with all the bits and bobs of leftovers, add what ever else you want to-tomato sauce or chili sauce, herbs, potatoes, carrots , again whatever you have. Add enough water or broth to cover. Then program the IP for another 10-15 minutes. Adjust seasoning and enjoy. A very good meal that costs almost nothing and you have lightened your freezer. And better, you have wasted nothing!!!

    Thanks for all the hints and tips! One money saver thing that I have been doing over the years is reusing my freezer ziplock bags. They wash up very easy along with the dishes (hand wash). I hate putting all that 'single use' plastic into the land fill. When possible, I will use containers instead. Cheers!

    I am no longer buying items that I already have the ingredients to make. So like brown sugar because I can make it from molasses and white sugar which I always have, Bread because I always have the ingredients to make that, dressings for salad, crackers, etc.

    My husband and I like a dessert after dinner. When the kids were here (4 of them) we’d go through a cake in a day or two. Now there’s no way just the two of us can, or should, eat an entire cake so I make half a cake now, and it’s the perfect size for us. I just googled half a cake from a mix, or something like that and found the directions so I’d know how much of the box to use. Today I made a cake for his birthday, but I made a small cake, and then cupcakes from the rest. He’s taking them to work with him tomorrow. I also bought the mini pie pans and I make mini pies for us too. These mini versions save money, we don’t waste the stuff, and we don’t eat more than we should lol.

    You talked about saving by buying bulk packages of meat but what about the savings from eating meatless meals several days a week? We don't eat any animal products which gives us more money to spend on healthy fresh and frozen produce. You can't put a price tag on health, especially being disease and medication free in the last decades of life.

    Here’s my hint – I got a second job on weekends at a BBQ restaurant for socializing and exercise and a tiny bit extra cash. I get a wonderful free meal with every work shift, that’s my total weekend food need. Saves me money from eating out with my money.

    The thing I have started doing recently is using my personal care products all the way to the end. I find myself putting "empty" tubes of hand cream in my nightstand drawer and starting a new one. I hate to throw out the "empties" because I know I can cut off halfway down the tube and get 3-4 more days of use out of what’s left in the "empty" tube. After I cut the bottom off, I use the cream and then slide the bottom over the top to keep it from drying out before the next day. I’m making a concerted effort to use up those hand cream "empties" this month. I’m pretty sure I can make it through the entire month of July and get rid of those old tubes in the process!

    A bit difficult to barter here, it is not very common just done it on plants, but when I can afford it and someone is providing me with a free item that the person had no more use for and I need, I bring a small gift, some cookies or a bag of sweets for the kids or a scratch card or lottery ticket, that way the person has a little thanks and enjoyment. Also another tip, for bigger purchases if you missed a sale that might not be a bad thing, keep watching the item, I saved 20 on a gardening tool I needed but I missed the sale, they subsequently reduced price down just a month later and then applied a general discount code, so it was great value. As to a new way of being frugal, I started to review all the projects I had planned to do and gradually work on them, it is reducing the material I have stored and I get things done. I had some laminate flooring left over and used it in the shed and it looks and feels brilliant just like new.

    Hi Guys, my husband and I moved from a one bedroom apartment to a three bedroom townhouse with a courtyard. We had to purchase lots of furniture to make it a home. So far we have bought everything from op shops and it all looks so cosy and homey. Everyone that visits tell us how lovely our home looks. This has to be my best money saving idea! You'll have to be patient and be prepared to look each week, though it certainly pays off.

    Went to Publix this morning to buy Kimchi, on sale, buy one get one free. There were none on the shelf so I went up to the courtesy counter and asked for a rain check. I was told they don't give out rain checks and haven't given out rain checks since the pandemic. Not happy.

    My favorite frugal activity is thrift store shopping. I rarely shop full retail and if I have to it's a Walmart type store. My other favorite frugal activity is canning produce. I dabbled in it over the years, but now look for things to can.
    As for the perennial gardens, my sister and I have been doing this for years. When shopping for new plants, we only buy perennials. We moved last year and I was able to transplant successfully about 90% of my perennials from our previous home. The house being sold as an investment property, so my gardens would have been lost had I not brought them with me. And my sister has brought me something from her garden almost weekly over this summer ❤️❤️❤️

    We recently ran out of celery when making a stew so instead we used pak choi stems and added celery seeds/salt for the flavour. No one would know the difference.

    I will be switching out some annual plantings for perennials. I will work toward making the switch at the end of this season.

    I just say , No. I don't owe them any information about anything else I do to give. My sister has always been very direct and I used to think was a (fill in the blank) but I started noticing people respected her for not dancing around a topic. So I learned to say ,No , as well and it makes life much easier.

    Love the tag sale items. Finding something second hand (sometimes brand new but at a second hand shop) is good for the wallet, good for the environment and typically helps a local shop, person or charity…win-win-win! Also love the carrots and lettuce for Dixie. My dogs’s dental specialist doctor recommended carrots for my dog…he just won’t eat them…which is funny because I always have carrots in my house. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Great frugal tips! I have bartered eggs from our chickens or a homemade cake with our local hobby shop owner for free race entries. It works out great, because both of us get something we want and it doesn't cost either of us as much money. My husband has also barters his time / help with friends. We recently got help installing our swamp cooler and our friend got help putting together his forklift. I think the key is to never take advantage and take up too much of someone's time. If a project is taking longer than expected, tell them they were a big help and you should be able to finish up the rest on your own, or else reschedule to finish the rest of the job another day. Now, if only I could figure a way to barter for gas and everything else!

    You never cease to motivate me! Doing many of your suggestions, but also learned some new ones. Hooray! Planning on working to implement more perennials in my garden
    My new frugal hack would be making powdered laundry soap. Fraction of the cost. So far so good! Also drying garden herbs for usage this winter!

    Too bad society cannot be content with playing cards, board games or putting a puzzle together as a family anymore. Our family is trying to do better with this seeing how last week we went to the local arcade and blew $100 in less than 30 mins. I love the simple, minimal, frugal life. I enjoy your channel, thank you both

    Back when most farms were small and had cows and chickens, the housewives would take eggs, cream and butter to the grocery store to trade for groceries. Definitely a win/win.
