Today's tip is:
1. Buy used whenever possible.
I buy almost all of mine and the children's clothes used, primarily at local thrift stores. We bought our vehicle used. I try to get my furniture used. I swap things with friends. I borrow things that I will only need for a short time.
If I can't buy something used, I try and ask myself if I can make it. I try to make buying new not be my first choice.
