We all try to figure out little ways to save money, because in the long run, it counts. Take a look at 4 random creative ways to save money:
1. Use Multi-Purpose Products: a great way to save money is to get products that have versatility. Use a product that can replace unnecessary products by putting all into one. For example, instead of purchasing teeth whitening strips, stain removers, or bleach, use baking soda for all three of these purposes. Another example would include a Swiss army knife that has things such as a corkscrew, can opener, screw driver, tweezers, or scissors. There are even vacuums that detachable so it can be a mini vacuum to clean a car.
2. Cancel Magazine and Newspaper Subscriptions: magazines and newspapers are one of the most common variable expenses in the household. People have spent average of $50 annually on magazines and newspaper subscriptions. Why do you need magazines and newspaper, when the internet is full of free entertainment and news? Although $50 dollars might not be a lot, saving money is still saving money.
3. Go Wholesale: when you buy food or school supplies in bulk, this is a successful way to save big money. There are stores like Costco that provide this opportunity. You're going to buy things such as toilet paper, soap, or water, you might as well buy it one time in bulk and save money. If you buy food items in bulk, make certain they can be frozen and aren't perishable. Foods like meat, vegetables, and bread can all be frozen for a long period of time. Others, like rice, nuts, beans, or snacks, should last a year if kept in a pantry. You can save as much as 25 percent by buying in bulk, sometimes as close to 50 percent if they're in sale.
4. Use Leftovers: instead of throwing away leftover food in the garbage, apply some creativity and mix them into other dishes. For example, if you have some friend chicken left over, you can chop it up into pieces and put it in the soup you were going to make the next day. The idea here is to minimize the consumption of foods by making use of the leftovers. Don't waste food and save money.
