Tip of the Week

Many people do not need a case of tuna fish or a ten-pound bag of carrots, but sharing a bulk purchase with one or two other people can give all of you just the right amount and save money. Discuss this idea with close friends or relatives.

For instance, a neighbor can trade her cleaning skills for day-care time for her child; in exchange for some editing, a friend can help organize a messy apartment. The swaps are endless -- and the savings can be huge. You can even get together with friends and have a clothes or furniture/house item swap. You may even make valuable relationships in the process!
