frugal_aussie_mum Inspired by @the_simplemummy I have decided to start baking my own bread & breadrolls. Batches in the past have been complete disasters, however this one was perfect! I save money, plus it make the house smell amazing!!

frugal_aussie_mum The pears and tomatoes I buy come in plastic containers. I find myself always throwing the container out once I am done. I thought to myself that surely I could use these around the house (I've been inspired lately at how resourceful some of you are!). I decided to use them to put my motel shampoos, soaps etc in. I was intending to go to the cheap shop and buy containers, but I have these for free! Saved myself $4 or so!

  •   lambshanksmum @thriftyfrugalfun im so.doing this 2d
  •   thriftyfrugalfun Such a good idea @lambshanksmum shame ive only got 2 more years till my eldest is 18! 2d
  •   tbhrache Such a great idea! Would make buying a car or starting a house deposit so much easier! 2d
  •   frugal_aussie_mum It could be used for so many things @tbhrache House Deposit, College/University Fun, a Car.. What it may be, it helps them out. I wont be telling my son about it though as I don't want him to expect it when he is older. 2d

frugal_aussie_mum I had seen this a couple of times online and thought I'd give it a go. It actually works! Make your bananas last longer by breaking them apart from others. This way no waste, thus saving money!

frugal_aussie_mum Here is a good documentary I found on Youtube about saving money (penny pinching). Although one guy was a little too extreme for my liking, there were some other really good ideas! Plus it was free to watch

frugal_aussie_mum Today it started raining (more like an annoying heavy mist), while I needed to do washing. I quickly rushed outside and took the clothes off the line, however some were still damp. I refuse to use the dryer as I know how much electricity it uses. So instead I laid the damp clothes out on my bed and turned the ceiling fan on high. Dried them real quick! I know I still used electricity, but it was far more less than what the dryer uses!

frugal_aussie_mum Husband got a little extra pay this week. Decided to take it out in cash and put it aside for our towns annual show day next month. If I start taking out a few dollars every week, by the time it comes around we'll have enough to enjoy the show without being behind in other areas!

  •   the_simplemummy We do the same we have a family budget of $400 for the show (I doubt we will spend that much) but I would much rather make a day out of it and buy their ridiculously expensive food thankfully we only go once every two years 6d

frugal_aussie_mum Dear God! I just had a heart attack! Our power bill just came in the mail. Usually we are in credit and the Electricity company pays us (due to having solar panels). This quarter we have used more electricity than our solar power made. We have a $80 bill!!! I called an emergency family meeting with my husband and we are going on a "electricity ban" lol. It's easy to see how putting the air con on because we felt hot, can affect us later on down the track. We just need to be more power conscious this quarter!

  •   the_simplemummy I'll swap you.. I'll have this bill you can have my $900 bill next month 1w
  •   frugal_aussie_mum Dear Lord thats high! @the_simple_mummy Do you use a lot of electricity??? 1w
  •   whitney_hansen_co You got this! 1w
  •   frugal_aussie_mum Thank you for the encouragement @whitney_hansen_co 1w
  •   the_simplemummy I would say for a family of 7 and for our region its realistic, the real killer of electricity is that the prices are forever going up. Our daily supply charge last year tripled within 3 months. But like any other bill you make a budget plan for it. I pay an extra 20% on top of my bills so in 5 months time I'm a month ahead. For things like this where the funds could be used somewhere else 1w
  •   frugal_aussie_mum That is such a good idea! Thank you @the_simple_mummy I will look into doing this! 1w
  •   the_simplemummy Every little bit helps :) 1w

  •   _mommaonabudget hey, I was going to email you but thought this would be easier. I you go to my page & click the link in my bio you can start with feature points. you download apps on your phone, open them for 60 seconds & then you can delete them. you collect points for doing this which you can then trade in for paypal cash, amazon gift cards & other things clicking the link in my bio will give you 50 points to get you started. I started this 3 weeks ago & have got 50$ . it's not going to get you rich (lol), but it will definitely help with he grocery bill, gas in the car or even treating yourself if your interested I know of a few other apps along the lines of this one too. if you wanted to DM me, I'd be more then welcomed to help you out #freeisformetoo 1w

frugal_aussie_mum Buying in bulk pays off. Yes it may seem like a lot of money upfront, but in the long run it is worth it. Laundry powder is expensive! I have begun looking into making my own but I'm still unsure if it will work out cheaper? The ingredients here in Australia are quite expensive. Also I have heard the "homemade" powder turns whites a browny colour? And people have said their food processor and grater now have a permanent "soap" taste, even after cleaning it? If you have any experience or advice, please let me know!
