Save Money

Old Things, New Uses

Making cookies? Boy you need baking soda. You open your fridge and detect a bad smell from that cake two weeks ago, remove the stench with baking soda. Want to take good care of your teeth? Baking soda again! The idea is to find new uses of old products like that dental floss that you don’t use any more (which is incidentally great for hanging photos) or to find multiple uses of whatever products you have with you- like you now three uses of baking soda. Discover more yourself!

 

Make your own Personal Care

Personal Care

A great thing to do to save money at home is to make personal care products yourself using coconut oil, vitamin E oil and lavender oil. Before you start jumping up and down saying it’s all very hard and won’t be good anyway, let us tell you that natural elements are much better than chemicals in stopping age and smoothening skin. We mean, when did Cleopatra use factory-made cosmetics?

 

Save Power

Save Electricity

This has been told to you from the first time you learnt how to turn on a lamp, but even after all these years you haven’t got the hang of it. Well its time you did or you might find more than half of your monthly income spent on electricity bills. Using an adjustable thermostat can reduce the amount of energy you use to heat or cool your home during the day when you’re not there.

You can also wait as long as possible to turn on your air conditioning for the summer, or even skip it altogether, if you live in a relatively mild climate. Finally, turn the lights off before leaving the room.

 

TV

TV

Do you watch shows on the TV or on your computer? If it’s the latter then ask yourself what sense it makes to pay that money to your cable or DTH operator for a service you rarely, if ever, use. The case for your ISP is much stronger than for your TV operator. You get the point? No? Cut the cable and go online!

 

Reorganise your Refrigerator

Refrigerator

How many times has it happened that you bought spices, forgotten about them and when you finally went to use them, found that they have expired? Many items on our grocery lists, such as spices, have a shelf-life which means that they have an expiry date and go bad after that. So it’s better to put all these items in your fridge separate from others so that he next time you remember about them going stale and don’t end up spending double.

 

Look for Deals

Deals

Online retailers such as Amazon and eBay are always offering some deal or the other. You need to look out for these and you can buy stuff at over 70% off the retail price. Now that’s a deal you can’t refuse. Also, if you are a bookworm, you can register at Bookbub which is a free service that will provide you with daily updates about eBook deals.

Well, are you convinced yet that you can save a ton of money by just putting a little more work in thinking about how to run your home? I bet you are! Well then, what’s the wait for? Go save the day!
