Submission request from Amanda at Oregon Public Broadcasting…

Description from web site: “What interesting or bizarre things are you doing to save money?” Since the 2008 economic crisis, we’ve heard many stories about people budgeting to live within their means. Many of us are clipping coupons, shopping sales, and cutting back on the number of times we eat out each month to save money in these tough times.

We want to hear from people who are taking frugality to a new level. What creative or unusual means are you going to to save a dime? Feel free to upload any photos that illustrate your interesting money saving tactics, and we’ll post it to our website.
