How to help your child be eco-friendly and save money

Kids don't always understand the importance of being eco-friendly and may take some persuading.
This is easier said than done but don't give up before you try a few of these suggestions!

1) Gardening

Get your child a set of garden tools just their size.  If you have a little girl that likes pink, go ahead and get her some cute pink garden tools.  If that's what it takes to get your child interested, the couple of dollars will pay off and could make your child a life-long gardener.

Set aside a separate area that your child can be responsible for in the garden.  Whether it is some flowers, or even a small tomato plant, having their own separate space to take care of may give your child motivation and interest in caring for the plants.

2) Eating & Drinking

Does your child like bottled water?  Save by getting your child a cute reusable bpa-free cup.  Maybe even let your child pick it out so that it feels like their decision.

Create your own snack sizes and juice boxes.  Use reusable containers (or ziploc baggies that can be rinsed out and reused) and presort snack sized amounts of your favorite treats.  Have you ever noticed that the amount per ounce goes up drastically when you buy the portion sized packages?  This will save your money AND be eco-friendly.

Pack a school lunch.  Have a lunch box that your child is not embarrassed to take to school and use reusable containers that can be washed out after school and ready to use the next day.

3) Shopping

Let your child take his or her own reusable bag to the grocery store.  This will create good habits at a younger age.  Some stores even reduce your purchase amount for each reusable bag you have.  As a reward, you could give that spare change to your child as a reward for being eco-friendly with you.

Visit the thrift store and yard sales.  What better way to save money AND be eco-friendly by reusing toys and clothing?  Give our child a budget and see what he or she finds.  It will be fun for your child to look for things while also spending little.  It will also teach the value of money.

What are your tips and suggestions? 
Please leave comments below with your favorites and I will add them later as user submitted suggestions.  

Laundry: How to Save Money

When money is tight, you try to save money on everything, but laundry is easily overlooked.  Here are a few money saving tips that can make a big difference in your wallet.  

1) Use less laundry detergent.  Unless your clothes are heavily soiled or stained, you do not need the full amount of detergent that the bottle recommends.  For most loads, I use half the suggested amount and it works great!

2) Use the energy saver wash setting. Energy saver modes take a little longer and may not work as well on heavily soiled or stained clothing but use less water per load.  

3) Use cold water.  This will make a difference in your utility bill.  Unless your clothing is, again, heavily soiled or stained, you can usually wash your clothing in cold water.  This will also help prevent colors from fading.

4) Set your washer to the appropriate load size.  The bigger the load size, the more water needed.  If you leave your washer set to 'large load' but you only wash a few items, you will be wasting a lot of water.

5) Clean the lint filter before every dryer use.  The lint build up can cause the dryer to work harder and even become a fire hazard.  

6) Hang dry your clothes on a clothing line outside.  This will eliminate any electricity used by the dryer as well as be less harsh on your clothing.  If you have major pollen allergies you may want to avoid this.
