It really couldn’t be easier!

You may have seen special posts pop up on Fridays that are full of clever tips, frugal hacks, or general ways to save money submitted by Hip2Save readers. Those posts are submissions in our Happy Friday series where we call upon our readers to share experiences surrounding their Hip2Save lifestyle.

When you share a frugal lifestyle story with us and we feature it on the website, we’ll send you a free $10 Amazon eGift card as a token of our appreciation!

You’re probably familiar with our other Hip2Save posts, so you’ll know that we aim to post pictures that are clear and have a horizontal orientation. Plus, the more pictures, the better! You can select up to 5 photos to include with your submission, so having more picture options to add to the post is so helpful to us.

    We were raised overseas in a military family. Both living on the economy and on base we learned different things growing up. We had to recycle way before it became the norm here in the states. You got fined if you didn’t recycle. We had to dry our clothes on the line in the basement or outside as on base there were to many people always viaing for the machines. I still to this day recycle and reuse items. I still hang my clothes on the line to save money and the environment. We don’t use the air or heat unless we have to. We use the ceiling fans til it gets to hot even for them. I still sew holes in socks like my grandmother. I pass the kids clothes on to other kids along with their toys (freecycle). I share our produce with neighbors and they share theirs with us. It is just a lifestyle we follow not just to save money but for the environment and we try to not be wasteful.

    Recycle old cotton shirts to rags. I also cut/tear the seams and collar,etc any prices that are too small or to rough into strips and use as ties for tomato, berry, etc. plants. The ties also can recycle with yard waste at the end of the season. I started doing this when I ran out of old pantyhose (I rarely wear them anymore so found something else). Stretchy or stiff cotton shirts both work well.
