Money Tip: One Woman's Garbage Is Another's Treasure

Money Tip: One Woman's Garbage Is Another's Treasure

Over time we each develop a unique saving style, which is why we started the How Do You Save? group for you to divulge your winning tactics. The group offers a place for you to dole out your advice to other SavvySugar readers trying to save a little moolah and learn from their experiences.

Ashley2 shared the simple, but always helpful reminder to recycle and donate your goods when you are finished with them because "one woman's garbage is another woman's treasure." She noted:

At freecycle.org you can get rid of what you don't want, and get what you do from other people in your area.

Some other ways you can can recycle, pay it forward and reap financial reward,

.

  1. Take a tip from Taylor Swift and donate your old dresses to DonateMyDress.org.
  2. Conserve more money by trading some of your less eco-friendly habits for ones that are more green.
  3. Focus on the motto of recycle, reduce, and reuse and watch your wallet grow.

Do you have a tip for readers? Join our How Do You Save? group and share your helpful suggestions! Here's a detailed guide to posting questions or posts to groups if you are new to the PopSugar Community.

I would use freecycle more often, but most of the stuff that people have on there are for kids. It'd be a great resource if you have young kids that are outgrowing clothes and shoes quickly. We put stuff on freecycle that we buy at auctions and don't really need...most of the stuff is car parts or machinery manuals or small appliances that we get for really cheap. I love Goodwill though...I love hunting through the clothes and finding stuff for a good deal. I also go through my own clothes fairly often to get rid of the stuff I don't wear so others can have them. Also, anyone who doesn't have a library card should get one and USE IT!! Free books, free movies, free workout DVDs, magazines you can read, internet access, etc.
