Act 27
Have a picnic.

Still guilty of this I’m afraid. But I’ll keep trying.

Act 26

Find new ways to use old things

Defying your debt isn’t just about sales and coupons and discounts. It’s about changing the way you look at what you have and think about what you need.

I love these clever ideas on pinterest. It’s creativity, upcycling and money-saving fun all rolled into one.

And if you’ve got an idea, snap a pic and pin it. If you like other people’s ideas, they’ll like yours too.
