Fun Ways the Family Can be More Thrifty

Saving money and trimming expenses are an important part of being a frugal family. It’s becoming harder and harder to do this these days, and you need to make sure you come up with options that work for your family. Remember, there are money-saving secrets that everyone needs to know to help them save. A lot of these will be simple and obvious to you.
As a family, you all need to get into the mind-set of being frugal. This means you’ve got to come up with fun ways to be thrifty. These will help the rest of the family embrace them, and get the kids into the habit of saving money. Here are a few such ideas to help get you started.
Take Turns Cooking
One of the key areas to save is when it comes to food. As a family, food is a huge expense, especially with 8 in the family, so anything you can do to cut down on the cost is advisable. You might use vouchers and coupons when shopping. It’s also advisable to avoid going out for dinner and to cook instead. Now, the way to make this more fun and appealing is to have a system where you take it in turns. That way everyone can cook, and people will be more invested in it because it’s like a little project. Of course, if you have very young children you won't be able to do this without assisting them, but with slightly older ones it’s fine.

As an added bonus, it also helps to make you more eco-friendly too.

Being more frugal and sensible with spending is important for helping with savings as a family. So you need to make sure you do what you can to become more thrifty.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed.
