Budget Parenting: Money Saving Tip #1

Thinking about getting a shredding machine so identity thieves can't get your credit card numbers out of your garbage cans?

Well, don't waste your hard earned money. Instead, use the following system to save time and expense:

1) place all of your "shred-able" documents in a bin by your diaper changing table.
2) Use the documents as wipes, tucking them securely into the rolled up dirty diapers before throwing them away.
3) Now you've saved money on wipes, AND the shredding machine you didn't need to buy.

Any thief who STILL finds your credit card numbers, probably needs the money very badly. You should accept this as a legitimate charitable donation.

This is a very good idea. Until now, I have been pureeing onions and slathering the paste onto all my important documents...very unpleasant. I'm going to switch over to this new trick right away. Potty training will have to wait. One can never be too vigilant.

pastor john, brother david, other concerned readers, & child protective services:

Let me assure you that no bottoms were exposed to newsprint, or documental germs in the development of this money-saving strategy.

It's more of a theoretical technique:
