    Living together to save on rent.

    It will certainly depend on the local culture and willingness on part of everyone involved. While in India, it is common practice for children to keep living with their parents even after their marriage, in Western culture, it is not approved of. So it depends where you live to follow this practice.

    Same clothes

    I have done it for a long time until a couple of years ago. I owned a few clothes that I wore often and had expensive silk sarees which I wore on occasions. It is only now recently that I have started buying clothes that I like , but within reason.

    Be honest - do you buy fake signature brands?

    I don't care much for name brands. All I look for is comfort and whether the colour and design is appealing to me. If I find something that I like and afford, I wouldn't mind if it is a fake brand product.

    Keeping the kids safe from dangers

    I never trusted my son with anyone. Even when we visited relatives, I always kept my eye on him and never let him use even the bathroom unaccompanied.

    Minimizing food wastage

    I use leftovers too to make a new dish. Sometimes I make extra food to make some different dish the next day. Otherwise I cook only that what we can eat at one time.

    What is your alternative ride from the public transport?

    Herbal drink to prevent kidney stones in dogs

    If it has been proved to be safe, then no problem. Better natural methods than harmful chemical based products produced by giant companies.

    Borrowing from the relatives

    That is the problem with borrowing from relatives. They will never give it just because you need it, but they will give you money so they can make you listen to their snide remarks all the time.

    Making your own fertilizer

    I use most of all that too. I dry used tea leaves, banana and potato peels, egg shells and then grind them up into powder which I use for my plantts. Makes excellent natural NPK and really helps in flowering. I have to buy cow dung manure since I live in a city.

    Renting out gardens for social events to others does sound very interesting and lucrative idea.
