In a time where it seems that most of us want and/or need to save money there are various options available to us. We can use coupons, bargain shop, control our spending, etc. However, in addition to those things there are actually some simple things you can do with the items you already have to help you get the most out of them.
By utilizing these easy tips, you will be saving money and every little bit helps.
- Unwrap a bar of soap and let it to dry out for a few weeks before you use it and it will last you longer. If you use a bath gel or wash, you should use a loofah, instead of applying it directly onto your skin (you ended up using more without the loofah).
- Dry your razor blades after each use to remove all of the water. The water droplets damage the blades and cause them to rust and oxidize.
- Cut a dryer sheet in half before throwing it into the dryer, so you’ll get double the amount of loads of laundry out of that package. Plus, once it has been used, you can also use that same dryer sheet to dust your house.
- Keep your perishables (like milk and eggs) towards the back of the refrigerator. By doing so, they can last several days past the expiration date on the carton. The back of the fridge is much colder and will keep it a lot fresher.
- A little goes along way, use a pearl sized drop of toothpaste on your toothbrush and your toothpaste can last twice as long.
