CashNetUSA Saves Like Your Grandparents

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Your family, along with you, know these are tough economic times.  Saving your money has never been more important.  It is during these times that we often look to our past for a solution.  Many of our grand parents had to deal with an even harsher economic climate during the Depression.  We recently had some grandparents offer us their money saving tips of the past.  Who knows, some of us can even try them today!

  • Reuse Water – During hard times, water was at a premium. Putting buckets in their showers and using the same water to wash their clothes was not uncommon.  If you ever get to this point, you can use the same water to fill your washing machines.
  • Sew – In the past, people did their own work when it came to clothing.  It was second nature to fix instead of replace.  Take care of the possessions you have.  Fix instead of replace. The longer something lasts, the more money you save.
  • Bake – Cooking is another skill that has slowly diminished over generations.  Why learn to cook when you can order out, or buy microwaveable dinners?  Plan your weekly meals, stock up at the grocery store, and cook.  Making your own food reduces your spending, and allows you to stretch your food budget with left over meals.
  • Grow – To stay with the food theme, learn to grow your own vegetables.  Just a little yard space will do. If you grow too much, consider selling some to your neighbors. This money saving tactic only costs you patience, but can save, and make, money in the long run.

Although your grandparents did not have onlines to help them out, your family reminds you that these money saving tactics can still be used today.  However, many of us no longer have the patience to grow and cook our own food, or repair our possessions.  Saving money is a mind set that can always use more information.  Most of the time, our past can help us out more than we know. Only if we are willing to listen.
