This week is flying by me and I just realized it was Wednesday and I didn’t have a topic idea for Wacky Wednesday, so I started to think about entertaining ways I’d read about people saving money.

For a laugh (and maybe a money-saving idea), I thought I’d share those fun (and crazy) ways to save money from around the internet today:

  • Zack, Coupon Dad, pitched the idea of letting him take over the grocery shopping and started¬† extreme couponing at 14 years old to cut the family’s budget, so he could get a higher allowance during summer vacation. (For a bigger laugh, click the link to tell me if you think he photoshopped his picture.)
  • Jason, Frugal Dad, watered down their skim milk when he kids started chugging down milk. My kids won’t even drink skim milk, so I think if I watered it down, I’d get some serious complaints!
  • Jennifer, at Beauty and Bedlam, sniffs out (literally!) good furniture at local thrift shops. She does a very thorough smell text before buying for water damage and to see how old the furniture is (yes, she can tell that by smelling it!)¬† (While the idea of Jennifer thoroughly smelling old furniture in the store cracks me up, I am totally green with envy at her thrift store buys, so I can only laugh so much.)
  • Amanda, Frugal Confessions, cut down the sad looking Evergreen tree in her backyard and used it as her own families Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.

Tell me a fun, crazy, wacky, or entertaining way you’ve saved money!

Hehehehe–I loved that tree, but my husband said never again!

B hasn’t eaten at a restaurant in 2 years, 3 months, and 25 days. :) Fairly extreme but we’re about to break it now that we’re debt fee!

Cherie, I COULD NOT have done that!
