Works For Me Wednesday How to Save Money on Books

I love to read books but our budget doesn't allow me to spend much money on that hobby so I have devised a way to read great books at no cost.

When I see a book that I find interesting on someone's blog or Facebook post that directs me to Amazon I put that book into my wishlist on Amazon. Then when I have time or the need for a new book to read. I go to my library system's online search catalog and refer back to my Amazon wishlist and see if any of the titles are available.

I can put them on hold and I get an email from my library when they are available. This little trick has saved me so much money over the years. I have been able to read some wonderful books that otherwise I could not afford.

Homemade Pizza Using a Bread Machine

A great way to save money is by making your own pizza and eating it at home. But this can be time consuming. I have a great recipe for homemade pizza that is quick with very little hands on time needed using my bread machine for the dough.

Five Ways to Save Money on Your Children's Clothes

Over the years I have found some great ways to save money on clothes for my children. Here our my five most favorite ways:

Accept all offers of free clothes
If someone offers you their children's outgrown clothing accept it even if their style is not the same as yours. There could be basic pieces or pajamas that will be just fine to wear even if they are a bit worn out.
Go to rummage sales and children's clothes sales 
Rummage sales have great prices for children s clothes. You might have to drive around to get to a good one but look for upscale neighborhood holding multiple family rummages to get the most out of your time and gas money. I also love children s clothes sales that are held in churches by a group of moms prices can be a bit higher than normal rummages but no driving around and usually everything is sorted out and organized to make it a faster shopping experience

Shop at consignment stores either online or bricks and mortar
Great clothes can be found either online at…
