Money Saving Tips
Money Saving Tip of the Week
1.Avoid bars and clubs if you’re just going to hang out with friends. Have house parties and buy drinks. It’s much cheaper. It can also be a lot more fun.
2.Don’t drink, don’t smoke. They cost money which need not be spent. You will also be healthier, which means lower health care costs for yourself. If you won’t (or can’t) quit, just drink or smoke less.
3.Cut down on your paper usage. Use rags instead of paper towels.
4.Use reusable cups, plates and utensils rather than disposable ones. Often you can find ones that are cheap enough that you can have enough for a party. Plus the utensils won’t break and you won’t cut through your plate. Then you can just load up the dishwasher. It’s not much more work…
5.Buy movie, amusement park, convention center or ski lift tickets at the local community college or grocery store.
Talli’s Tightwad Tip of the Week
1.Don’t go to full-price movies. If movies are part of your life, downscale to matinÃ©es or the second-run theaters.
2.Be careful buying items at big bulk warehouse stores. The items are often more expensive than they would be at conventional stores when they are on sale. You’re better off stocking up on them during sales and replenishing whenever you see a sale.
3.Turn off lights and anything electrical behind you, you’d be surprised how much that can save you, especially when it comes to televisions.
4.Fresh parsley and some other herbs keeps longer if set in a cup of water in the refrigerator. Mushrooms keep over a week if transferred into a paper bag. So, store your food properly, cut down waste and reduce your food bills.
5.Buy clothes at the end of the season so that you can buy them at their lowest price during a closeout sale.
