Frugal Tip Friday 8/29/08


Link your your own Frugal Tip Friday post back here and leave a comment here. I love reading all of your Frugal Tips!!

Today's tip:

Bargain shop when looking for services. There’s no rule that says you have to go with the first plumber that you call. All companies don’t charge the same amount. Checking two or three places will give you a good idea of how the prices stack up. Choose the one with the most services for the lowest price. If you are not sure, ask a friend who may have had the same need that you do now.

We found our roofer through a friend at a cocktaill party. We were moaning and groaning about how expensive it is. They heard us and said that they got theirs done for half that!! Sometimes, it pays to complain:-)

That's a great tip. I hate it when I need something fixed and I can't get then name of someone that someone else has used. I know I'm taking a risky chance....
