I’m all about saving money, not spending money or simply utilizing what I have.
Though, of course, money is a necessity for a lot of useful things, like new eyeglasses, and even sometimes those not so ‘needed’ things…like chocolate or match box cars…but today I’d like to share five ways I saved money this week…in some cases, even made money;
1. Brought my coffee from home instead of buying take-out.
2. Packed my lunch (and Finns) at home, including beverages (water in re-usable glass jars), and snacks.
3. Purchased a down winter jacket (Adidas) from a local consignment shop (a steal at $15!).
4. Collected $25 from the children’s consignment shop I consign with (this is where I made money).
5. Borrowed books and movies from our local library.
The only money I spent was $15 for the down jacket. I have to post a photo of it – I love it!
Now I know most of you probably already do a lot of these things, so this is really a friendly reminder…
There has been much talk about preparing food at home, packing lunches, investing in travel coffee mugs, etc…but with the holiday season upon us and time always moving faster and faster, why not be reminded of these little ways to save money and hassle.
Why not shop at a consignment shop? Why not check out books from your local library? Why wouldn’t you consign your good unwanted items? Making lunch at home requires a bit of fore thought, but not that much…really.
Saving money means doing more of what you want to do…whatever that may be.
What little things do you do to save money?
