We’re committed to helping you save money on everything from food to clothing.
Did you know clothing is always marked down on holidays?
This includes all holidays, like Columbus Day on Monday. This is one of the best days of the year for discounts and is the third-biggest shopping day of the year. Check online for deals also.
Saving money by couponing and living frugally can allow nice vacations. Even little changes like packing your own soda and coffee with you all year can save enough for a trip to the mountains or the beach. Add in cooking at home and you can have a vacation to rival anyone’s.
Social media can also help with saving money. Pinterest or Facebook can be helpful. You can find recipes for cleaners on these sites to save money.
One of my favorite bathroom cleaners came from Pinterest. It is a teaspoon of blue Dawn dish liquid, 2 tsps. of white vinegar and fill a squirt bottle with hot water. Other tips include using hydrogen peroxide for blood stains on clothes or Fels-Naptha soap to pretreat stains. Kroger and Walmart have Fels Naptha in the detergent aisle.
It’s time to clean closets, and my biggest piece of advice would be donate to Goodwill. Anything you haven’t worn in five or 10 years needs to go. I reduced the contents of my closet to almost half and I absolutely love it. I have seperated the clothes by color; I have a blue section, white section, brown section and black section. It’s so easy to find an outfit now. Just keep the basics that you will wear in your closet.
Signups continue for the next class starting the last week of October at ACTC and goes through the third week of November.
