Saving Money Tips That I Use
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.
