Five years ago, I answered the challenge from fellow blogger, Mavis Butterfield of 100 Dollars a Month, to share ways my family saves money without sacrificing our quality of life.
I don't know whether my family would agree or not, but I just think that we have had an amazing life, and frankly, I don't think my children have ever wanted for anything, in spite of the fact that, we are pretty frugal.
Most of the things in the article are things we still do, and in many ways, we've even gone further down the path of frugality than where we were when I wrote this article. For instance, I still don't purchase commercial cleaners, but I also learned to make soap. So, the savings there is even greater, because I don't need to purchase those expensive Dr. Bonner's products anymore.
Here's the article from 2016, which was posted on Mavis' blog.
