For saving money around the house!

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

I don't think I've ever bought anything with those little thingies on... I also don't generally do gift cards. Saves even more money! :lol:

Saying that, I bought a brand new jacket (M&S) from my favourite charity shop yesterday - pure wool, original labels, £5.95... Quite chuffed.

clothes-first thing I do I cut the hangy ribbon, second the label, unless it is really soft and smooth.

There's nothing worse than a scratchy label at the back of your neck or, even worse, in your knickers. :lol:

I wish I could say that time on the allotment saves money around the house - well it does when you have crops to eat fresh and crops to freeze for the winter but it does make for dirty clothes. I like the runner beans and dwarf beans which can just be washed, sliced and frozen without blanching.

Still I have cooking apples which have stored thus far over the winter - the last ones are being cooked and frozen for pies and crumbles as they aren't doing too well raw now.
