My mom had a sudden loss of income two years ago, so she had to find some creative ways to make her dollars stretch further. One of the ways she made a painless cut in her budget was to share resources.

She likes to read the paper daily, but the price was affecting her budget. So, she began sharing a subscription with my aunt. Now, once or twice a week my aunt comes to her house and picks up all of the papers and reads them. She also shares a garbage plan with her. My aunt just comes by to drop her garbage in my mom’s container. Instantly my mom cut her paper and garbage costs in half.

Are there any expenses you could be sharing?
