Please share your tips for making a dollar go further. I've been buying items that we use in larger quantities when they are on sale, coffee, TP, soap, personal care products etc. I also started buying produce locally. Of course planted a garden this Summer. Did a lot more canning and freezing this year. We've stopped buying soda and we now use powdered gatorade and ice tea mix. I've place a basket of rags next to the paper towels in an effort to cut down on paper towel use at $1 a roll. Started my own flock ofhens for eggs. (This has of course cost me more than buying eggs but I think of it as cheap therapy).
