Saving Strategies & Resources
For Your Most Basic Needs
The Center For Debt Management developed this sector to assist you in finding the best values for your most basic needs, food and clothing. According to statistics, clothing accounts for 7%
of a family’s take home pay and food—would you believe, a whopping 20%!
That means a family with take home earnings of $4,000.00 per month will spend an average of $1,080.00 per month on food and clothing. If this family were able to cut these expenses by 10%, they would save $108.00 monthly —that’s an annual savings of $1,296.00!
Our objective in developing this sector is two fold. First, to provide articles and resources which promote cost saving strategies to save on groceries and household supplies, as well, as clothing and other related items. Second, to provide value orientated resources where you can shop for food and clothing at affordable prices that represent a true value for consumers.
Although this sector is still in the early stages of development, below you will discover resources to explore. In selecting our resources we take particular care to only offer those merchants that we believe offer quality merchandise and services, if not at discounted prices, at least at prices that represent a true value.
