Each week or month I'll provide a tip or two for all those masterful-money-misers out there that I've learned from watching him.
So my father in law lives by the water and loves to go clamming, oystering and muscling (pretty sure those aren't all words). He's managed to use this passion to save money in multiple ways, my favorite of which is the driveway...
1. Don't pay for the seafood, go catch it!
2. Freeze what don't finish so you have seafood for the winter!
3. Finally, use the shells from the shell fish to make a unique and environmentally friendly driveway.
Yes, he actually uses crushed shells for his driveway. It's actually pretty cool looking. He eats the clams, etc. and says: "Make sure you toss those in the driveway!" No tar, or resealing to worry about just eat and toss.
The Frugal Father-In-Law strikes again...
