Default Let's take a Tour of a Frugal Person's Home - Utility Room, Laundry Room, Mud Room

I thought it might be fun to take a tour of a frugal person's home.


I have made separate posts for rooms you find in a typical home.


List below what you have in your frugal home or think you may find in a frugal person's home for this particular room.

Items such as yard sales, thrift store finds, dumpster dived, curbside shopped, or even hand-me-downs (furniture, etc.)

Feel free to share pictures if you want of rooms or items. Sort like a virtual tour and a show and tell all in one.

Our utility room serves as our laundry room and big pantry for my homecanned stuff and buckets of bulk items such as wheat berries I use to make bread, etc., oatmeal, etc. etc.


The pantry shelves in our utility/pantry were made by dh and uses recycled wood for them.


Many of the buckets were free from local bakeries. I also recently bought more from a lady in our church for $2 per bucket w/lid.



We have a front loading washer and dryer that dh bought me last year = not new but on sale and with free delivery plus I got some knocked off of it for a slight dent on the front of the dryer. They are more energy efficient, use less water and detergent as well.

I usually make my own powdered laundry detergent but also use cheaply bought detergent thanks to the ALL detergent coupons that were out not long ago.

I cut dryer sheets into 4ths to use. One strip works wonderfully for a regular sized load.

I use dryer sheets multiple times and all my shelves for my stockpile were free from hubby's job. I also use cut up boxes from work to store items on my shelves so that they're all nice and neat.
