Growing your own vegetables is a great way to save money at the grocery store on fresh, organic produce but did you know that you can save money gardening too?

One of the easiest ways to save cash is to reuse containers to start seeds in. Seed starting trays can be made inexpensively from plastic salad boxes, milk cartons and even cereal boxes.

Recycled Seed Starting Containers

Yogurt pots and coffee cups make easy seed starting containers.

To use containers such as these, carefully make drainage holes in the bottom to allow water to flow through and prevent over-watering.

Plastic trays, lids and old cookie sheets make great free drip trays to place plant pots on to hold the water.
