WEIRD WAYS TO SAVE MONEY

Don’t Grocery Shop Until the Kitchen is Empty

This tip is drastic and not for the faint of heart. After your next trip to the grocery store, do not make another trip until you have eaten everything in your fridge and pantry. This way, food won’t go to waste and you won’t be throwing money away.

Reuse Plastic Bags

If you have extra plastic bags from the grocery store, reuse them as trash bags (or poop bags if you have a dog) instead of paying for trash or poop bags. If you use Ziploc bags, take the time to wash them out and reuse them a couple times so you have to buy them less often.

Only Drink Water When Eating Out

Instead of paying for a soft drink or other beverage when eating out, just stick with water. If you need a little flavor to your water, ask for a couple lemon wedges. Don’t pay $3 for a glass of Pepsi (which will inevitable be served with a ton of ice so you won’t even get that much Pepsi) when you can just get water for free.

Take Advantage of Fast Food Packets

Whenever you hit up Carl’s Junior, KFC, or Taco Bell, grab some extra packets of ketchup, mayo, mustard, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. True, these packets are small, but if you grab enough of them, over time you will have quite a little stash at home and you won’t need to head to the grocery store the next time you need condiments.

Use Hand Sanitizer

Carry hand sanitizer with you in your purse or keep some in your car. Use it whenever you grab a basket at the grocery store, open a door, or touch a surface many other people have touched. This will reduce your chances of getting sick and having to pay for a doctor’s visit or medication.

Stop Smoking

Smoking is expensive and bad for your health. Do whatever it takes to stop smoking. Not only will this save you money on a daily basis, but it may also save you money on future expenses such as medical and auto insurance.

Displace the Water in Your Toilet

Fill a water bottle with some sand, put the cap back on, and stick it in your toilet tank. This will save you up to one gallon of water every time you flush and will consequently reduce your water bill.
