~First of all, I'm going to start one of those "price books", but I refuse to shop at more than 3 stores (especially considering two of the ones I'm going to shop at aren't in my town).
~I'm going to start shopping at Aldi. I already shop at Super Wal-Mart (who doesn't?), but we're going to get a membership to Sam's Club too, to try it out. I'm also going to start being more resourceful w/food. We have TONS of stuff, I need to figure out what to make with it. =) And no more throwing out leftovers. Hopefully I can use the extra shopping money to buy meat, etc in bulk (we'll need a deep freeze). I plan on making all of our bread from scratch. I like making bread, I just hope I have time!
~DH is going to put up a clothesline. I do 6-7 loads of laundry per week, and each load takes 2-3 cycles to dry. I'm hoping to save money on my power bill.
~Also going to try out cloth diapers, but so far I'm completely lost. I want to make my own, but I don't understand enough about them to determine which kind I should go with.
~Planting a garden one last time, to see if I actually keep it watered and weeded. =) I'd like to can some, freeze some, and use some to make baby food.
Hmm...that's all I can think of for now. Does it sound like an ok start?
