Managing a home involves a lot of things most of us rarely stop to think about. If we were to take time (as if we had the time to do this) to sit down and write out all

of the things we do to manage a household the endless list of must do's and want to do's would be overwhelming. Many of us are forever looking for ways to conserve

money on basic household items and save money in the home budget in every facet that we can scrape by with. Especially with the current economy. Taxes and insurance

keep going up. The costs of basic living necessities are forever increasing. To make matters seem worse, most of us are not experiencing a pay increase to coincide with

these increases. Not all is such seemingly doom and gloom. There is still a lot to enjoy in life. However, many of us have less money to use for enjoyment than we used

to. So what are we to do? We can conserve the money we do have by finding more affordable alternatives to every day needs.

In this segment of the Dogwood Tales web site I am sharing such alternatives that I have found that work for me. I hope that you will find that these tips and

information will be helpful to you as well - whether it is learning how to make your own laundry detergent, to fixing things around the house yourself, a simple

organizational tip, or something else.

So check it out and get excited about conserving your hard earned money!
