Well since I thought this group was about saving money not soliciting homeworkers I though I would start a new thread. Here are some things I do to save money with 5 kids.
I swap clothing my children have out grown with family & friends.
I also shop depatment store clearance racks sometimes you pay less for a brand new item that you would for a used item at a thrift store.
I use dish detergent to pretreat stains rather than the expensive stain removal products.
I try to grocery shop for 2 weeks at a time and buy large packages of meat and divide it up and freeze it. I find that if I shop for 2 weeks at a time I spend $30 - $40 less each shopping trip.
I would love to see other ideas on how to save money.
