Help Foster the Economy in Your Home


Making small changes around the house is a great way to save some money. One mom recommended replacing your lightbulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs, to save money on electric bills, and taking advantage of hand-me-downs such as clothing and children's furniture. Save money on entertainment by visiting your local library for books, movies, and children's activities. Instead of eating out, break out your cookbooks and make your meals at home. The savings from even small changes can really add up, and you'll see the results in your bank account.
