Saving Money Tips That I Use

Updated on March 10, 2017

Rich or Poor?

I was having a conversation with my son, who listens to how to get rich, or how to be successful kind of stuff. I enjoy these types of podcasts and videos too. Well I was sharing some of my tips with him so that he and his girlfriend could maybe save a bit more on their groceries and he said, “If you think like a poor person you will always be poor”. I wanted to say if you think like an arrogant person you will always be arrogant, just kidding. I don’t consider myself poor not do I consider myself rich. Well actually I do consider myself rich but more in a blessing kind of way, good health, good relationships, thankful for the basics you know what I mean. We debate always but also agree on many things. I love my little entrepreneur son who is over 6 feet tall. Anyway I told him that I disagree with him. If you can cut down your grocery bill and then invest it into a money making asset even better.

Saving Money Habits or Habits of the Rich or Poor

Well here are my tips I am sure you have heard of most of them.

-Don’t by paper towels (use rags, old shirts and towel cut up and wash them)

-Wash and reuse freezer bags

-Reuse cereal bags and other packaging

-Use your shopping receipts for shopping lists

-If you used lemons in a recipe collect them in a jar and place them in your closet for a couple of weeks- It smells great.

-Use can also use the left over lemon to clean and shine your sink

-Wash a few items in the shower or after a bath. I will wash about 2-3 items.

-I hardly ever buy garbage bags; I use container or grocery bags.

-Cancel cable, use Netflix, YouTube, library.

-Don’t eat out – make all your own food and plan menus and shopping, carry snacks so you are not tempted to go through the drive thru.

-send sandwiches for bag lunches in bread bags, produce bags, cereal bags etc.

That’s it for now I will be posting more tips, recipes and ideas probably every week. Cheers.

I would love to here your tips and tricks.

      My father has taken this to the extreme by telling my mother not to empty her bathwater when she's done. He takes a bath in it (2nd use) then instead of draining it waters his garden with it (3rd use). He's convinced they are poor because they are retired, but they are certainly not. Just really frugal. It drives my mother nuts. Gardening, however, is a practical investment.
