I thought a forum for ways to save money is a good idea.
For example, switching off all your power points after you use them, when you are asleep or go out, can save hundreds of dollars on your utillity bill. Shopping at op shop stores such as Goodwill / Salvation Army firstly for goods can save vast amounts of money too, especially on clothes.
We could all post random ideas on every day things, like cheap meals, gardening tips (growing your own food if possible), etc.

Tip of the day:
Try shopping at your local market/supermarket late at night or just before it closes. Usually, you will get good bargains on discounted meat and bread, and anything that doesn't have a long shelf life. Also at some supermarkets or smaller grocery franchises, I have been able to bargain down a price for something, as the owners would rather make some money off of selling the good/s, rather than just throwing the good/s out as they lose money doing this.

They won't make a forum for that. I believe there is a thread or two on this subject in the Ladies forum, and possibly Misc. forum. :)

New forums are created by demand, not suggestions. And the number of forums is purposefully kept to a minimum to make it easier to navigate. This is more of a thread idea than a forum idea, anyways.

put the thread idea in miscellaneous. Its a good idea but probably not enough for an entire forum. This CC doesnt have many forums Ive noticed it can be a bit narrow. Theres good things and bad things about this restriction. I dont know if someone has to pay for a new forum to be created cos people keep suggesting things and CC seems very stingy about the number of forums here.

Even when theres a demand people some ppl are like oh no more work.
But the point of having a variety is so theres LESS work navigating amongst different topics and sorting wheat from the chaff.

The number of sub forums is purposefully kept small to make navigating the site easier. And even as small and simple as it is now people often times still struggle to know where to put things.
The more subforums to dig through the less that get used and the more that get lost into obscurity. I've been on sites with lots of subforums and hated it. Nearly every single one was dead because it was too much for people to keep up with.
