Very cool! I've been using the homemade laundry soap from thesimpledollar.com and it's been working really well.

And since I bought the washing soda (soda ash) at a ceramics supply store, it costs even less...

www.freecycle.com is a good website if you need to get something or give something.

This is an awesome site for grocery coupons and specials.  it consolidates all the specials and lists all the coupons in the weekly papers also.  It even calculates the final savings, for instance if you combine specials with coupons.

Sufficient Self .com is a site for people that not only want to budget and save money, but, provide for themselves by gardening, owning livestock, making homeade cleansers, homecooked meals, etc.

Maybe we could ask TPTB to sticky this thread to the top. I'm sure there are tons of websites like this.

Maybe we could have one for the coupon websites as well.

www.instructables.com is a free site with lots of projects of all kinds, not just electronics. Many projects use found or cheap parts, which is the point. Projects include gardening, sewing, recipes, household how-tos, and more.

The USDA website has tons of info from budgeting, the cost of raising a child, recipes, etc. I just typed grocery budget in the search bar.
