We have made choices in our lives to do things ourselves and not pay for the service. It’s a personal choice that we are happy with.
With that in mind, I want to share with you what we personally don’t spend money or reduce our spending on in our household.
- Yard work
- Spring and fall yard clean up
- Snow shoveling
- Gutter cleaning
- Power washing
- Trash / recycle – would have to ay a trash hauler as our town doesn’t provide this service
- Rain barrel – we collect rain water and use this to water the garden and plants
- Compost Bin – our town has a goal to go waste free, so we are able to take our food waste to the town for compositing
By doing these things ourselves, we save money each and every month that we can use in a variety of ways (reduce debt, increase savings).
