Proverbs 15:16

Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.

Why I Don't Buy

It's been so long since I've updated this, I'm feeling really bad!
So here are a couple money saving tips that I practice on a regular basis, and I'm continually try to learn more.

-I never buy envelopes
     -Take this generic envelope shown below.  I got this envelope for free, that's right! free.  I pay my bills
      online, so when I receive bills in the mail with correspondence envelopes included, I save the
      envelopes, and don't ever have to buy them.  I admit, I bought some at Staples for a dollar during
      their dollar days back before I learned this handy tip, but these days, I just open my bills!

-I cut my fabric softeners in half
     -Most people I know use fabric softeners more than once, which is a great way to save on money.
      An added savings is to cut those fabric softeners in half.  By cutting them in half, your laundry still
      receives all the benefits, but you have twice as many!  I still use them more than once, too.  My
      laundry comes out the same as it would had I used a whole sheet, so you're getting 50% off the cost!

What sorts of money saving strategies do you use?
