Creative Spending & Saving

Money is tight pretty much everywhere these days and it doesn't look like it's going to get any easier any time soon. We are being forced to be even more resourceful than ever before.
Over the past year or so I have been looking for ways to cut the fat in my spending and make do with less. For me there isn't a lot of money to spend so, most of my ideas are about making do with less and being even smarter about what you do spend your hard earned money on.
Saving money and spending less means getting back to basics and making things simpler. The last time we had to do that as a nation was during the Great Depression. There is a greater interest during these recession times in the tools and tricks people used back then to make ends meet and get by. 

Here are some of the tips and tricks that I have used in my family to creatively cut our spending and save. Enjoy!

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google
