TIPS FROM SOME PENNY PINCHERS
One reader says, that before he and his wife head out for a nice meal, he always makes a single cocktail for them to enjoy together, before they leave. It's quieter and they can have some time for conversation, they can hear.
But the best part is, it saves about $20.00 off their dinner bill.
Another reader offers this suggestion. Before you send the clothes you're tired of to the Goodwill, first have a pot luck party. Have your friends over, get them to bring the clothes, handbags,and shoes, they thought they had to have, but never wear. Then trade them around. If there are things no one wants, donate them to charity.
Who said one woman's junk is another woman's treasure?
If you have children, this is also a good way to deal with the things they out grow or the toys they get bored with, have a pot luck for them too.
