I found an article in The New York Times today that talks about the growing popularity of being “cheap.” Kellee Sikes of Kirkwood was interviewed and she shared how she’s been saving money: by no longer using paper napkins. To read the full article, CLICK HERE.
As more and more people find themselves facing unemployment or reduced hours (or they fear that they may soon be in that position), it’s now popular to be frugal. I know I’ve tried to group together errands so I can save money on gas, and my friends and I don’t go out to dinner anymore. So my question to you is, how have you been saving money in this recession? If you have a story or a tip to share, leave a comment–we’d love to hear from you!
