Even though I would buy only when what I needed was on sale (great sales at that) I've already saved tons of money!

    For those who aren't sure...it is worth considering...

    I re-use empty liquid dish soap containers. I dilute liquid laundry soap and use it as spot wash. It works better than any pre-wash I have used. It works great on grease stains, etc.

    I always buy clothes at the end of season for the kids they are always like 50 to 75% off and just right for them, so if you want spring clothes buy them then end of winter.

    I always buy any toys my kids want on sale cheap too, one year we got my daughter well over $150 of bratz toys for only a meer $30 just have to hunt around for the good deals.

    Always buy whats on sale for the week I get grocries, then if its a great deal I always get a couple.

    For the kids lunches I make muffins and cookies cheaper than buying stuff for their lunches and saves money, plus they both have resuable water bottles that I fill with juice for their lunches.

    the best way i saved money was taking my long distance off my home phone and got a cell phone and added the people i call long distance to my top 5 on my cell phone witch is only $35 a month compared to the $50 i was paying on my home phone so I am saving $15 a month and have a cell phone so I will always have a phone on me

    My family saves money be growing their own food. We don't eat so much meat so that saves some more.

    I hang dry all my clothes and wear hand me downs from my richer sister.

    When I buy in bulk and divide the goods amongst my family and friends.

    I turn on only one light in the house and don't watch t.v.

    I carpool to work and to shop.

    I make my own lunches for work.

    In Winnipeg, we have these great Y-neighbour garage sales twice a year in the Community Centres (in the spring and in the fall) where you can get used kid's toys, baby stuff and clothes. Lots of savings there!

    If everyone in your house is a non-smoker - call the company that you have your home-owner insurance with and ask if they have a non-smokers discount. Many companies do but they won't tell you unless you ask!

    WOW what good ideas - Thanks everyone!!!!!

    A lot of times I end to a Value Village for my clothes.. fo DS, I'm very lucky that I've had 3 different families give us clothes (their 3 boys are older and old grown the toddler clothes). For special occasson, I'll end to a "gentle used kid's cothing store" and look for a outfit. Why spend $100's on one outfit that my son will only wear once or twice.

    Price match alot esp @ WM!

    Coupons!

    Keep the suggestions/idea's coming!!

    Hi.

    Great tips all, i have been writing a lot of them down. Plus i sent pm's out to people about a few things.

    In a neighboring town where i live there are 2 "bread houses".
    one is owned by pom and the other in Weston.
    They are stores where day old bread goes to, as well as hamburger, hot dog buns, tortilla wraps, bagels and cakes.
    You only pay at the most 1.05 for a loaf of bread, sometimes 75 cents, buns will cost you 75 to 99 cents at most. Pack of 8 cakes run you about a 1.00.
    I forgot to add that sometimes the stuff shows up there cause the factory packed them in the wrong boxes. I got blueberry flakies cakes packaged into apple flakie boxes. They only cost me 80 cents for 6 flakie cakes. From the vachon company.
    And all because this stuff is a day old and the regular stores wont accept it.

    I am a bargain hunter. I like the challenge of looking for sales, clearances and unique items. Some stores that appear to have a lot of junk (like Liquidation World and Sears Outlet) often have hidden treasures in them too.
