Another Money Maker - Sell Your Unused and Old Clothing at Consignment Shops

Here's another excellent way to make money, from things around your home that you're not even using right now. Raid your closets! (And that of all your family members!) All of those unused pieces of clothing can really make you a great bundle of money, if you do a little research first.

Consignment stores can earn you a substantial amount of money, but first you need to find the right consignment shops in your area, for the types of clothing that you have. Some specialize in vintage clothing, others in high end brand names, and still others in children's consignment clothes. Also call ahead first and find out if that particular consignment store accepts out of season clothing. Some only accept the appropriate clothing for that season - for example, sweaters and heavy winter coats in wintertime.

Baby Steps Towards Frugality - Fun Frugal Tips

Here's a baby step towards a more frugal lifestyle:

- Use grocery coupons to ease the strain of your wallet at the supermarket! Find a few local friends who also want to use coupons, and help each other find the greatest coupons. You can look on store shelves, and check out newspaper inserts. Swap coupons you don't need with your frugal friends who need them - and in exchange get the coupons you covet!

There are also a number of online coupon groups where you can swap coupons. It's a great way to save money on groceries - which is, after all, one of the hugest monthly expenses!
