We live in a society that, for the most part, operates on instant gratification. While most strategies tied to money are long haul, long run types of payoffs, I thought it would be interesting to list several things, 21 to be exact, that could save you money right away.
There’s nothing groundbreaking below and this list is nowhere near all inclusive. When I started to document my 5 Frugal Things recently I noticed that there are tons of everyday things that were often overlooked as being frugal. I’ve come to find, in our lives at least, that taking a few frugal minutes to think about what we are doing and consuming can make a big difference.
When I’m brushing my teeth, do I really need that big of a blob? Or will a small blob do the job? Ha! I’m totally going to use that phrase when instructing Little Daisy to brush her teeth,
Like I said, nothing groundbreaking. Each of these 21 things is relatively effortless. If only half of them became a habit, you will see the savings add up as I have.
If thoroughly checking your bills and invoices becomes in an ingrained habit, I guarantee that you will catch a mistake that ends up saving you money.
If you make breakfast for dinner at lease one night each week, you will feed your family for pennies on the dollar.
If it becomes a habit to take a few seconds and rinse out Ziploc bags, you will save yourself the $4 each month (of few times each month) purchasing them.
A few small tweaks in habits and our daily lives can really make a difference!
