1. Had my hubby look as the dryer first instead of calling the repair guy. He fixed it for free :)
2. Hung 3 loads of laundry instead of drying them due to the broken dryer
3. Used rags instead of paper towels.
4. Kid # 5 took her lunch all week instead of buying hot lunch. ( this was more because she didn't like anything they were having, but still taking a sack lunch IS cheaper)
5. Used up several leftovers for lunches/dinners so that the food did not go to waste.
