If you're in need of dirt for your flower beds and landscaping here's how you might be able to score some for FREE. If your development is still actively building, there's lots of dirt to be had. Ask your PM if they have extra dirt from recent excavations. We've been able to get many, many yards of dirt for FREE - saving us HUNDREDS of dollars. You might even find someone working in your development using a bobcat. You could pay that person a small amount to dump that FREE dirt in your driveway. I hope to have updated pictures of our patio (and flower beds with our free dirt) in the next few days or so. Unfortunately we seem to be getting NON-STOP rain around here for weeks and it's been hard to enjoy anything outside, let alone work on our yard.
I love sharing good deals. Some of these deals really have little to do with the original intentions of my blog. So...follow me on Facebook and Twitter - ThriftyAmy on both. Send me a quick note on either one so I know who you are and can approve you.
