We’d really like to be in a home of our own.  Not only are we excited to be able to make decisions about decorating our house, then just doing it instead of asking the landlady, but we’d also like the freedom to have pets if we want AND, most importantly, we’d like a place to stake our tents permanently.

To get there, we are trying to save up for a down payment.  To do that, we recently discussed ways that we can save money.  Here are some of the things we’re doing:

  1. Making our own yogurt
  2. Making our own “cream of” soups
  3. Line drying our laundry
  4. Starting our first vegetable garden
  5. Having a garage sale

I have two questions for you.

What do you do to save money?


Would you like me to write about the ways that we are saving money?
