Another simple money saving tip. If you don't have a large yard, pick up an old fashion lawn mower. Push mowers are cheap and don't need any gas!!!
This is the kicker. Gas here in Oregon is $3.69/gallon WHAT!!! Rather than just complain about the costs of gas let's start looking for practical options and man powered mowers are a great option. Now if you have a large lawn...I can understand how this might not be the best option. However homes are being built on smaller and smaller lots. Why not catch a workout while also cutting grass??
