 How do you save money? Clipping coupons, buying secondhand, drive economy car, raise chickens and grow a garden? Anything......

I use coupons. I shop fliers and go to more than one store. I combine trips so that I only have to go out once. We grow our own garden. We don't use paper towels or napkins (microfiber cloths and cloth napkins). I buy generic when I can (but there are a few things I will not buy generic).

I hear you on the generic. I don't clip coupons but when there's a buy 1/get 1 sale I am all over that!

Oh yeah! You have to hit the BOGO. Especially if it's something you use often!

I use the huggies diaper coupons when I get them in the mail, I use target or gendurias' brand instead of using the name brand and I'm always looking for sales.

I tend to agree about the Target stuff. Even their Market Pantry stuff is good. I actually really like their diapers. I don't really use sposies other than daycare, but they seem to hold up as well as any other brand.

 I LOVE the Target diapers! And their cheap compared to the rest! I haven't had a problem with them and Kyle's been using them since we ran out of diapers from his baby shower! Never had an issue!
