Popular Post Gurn Posted January 23, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted January 23, 2022 (edited) A thread for posting your money saving, spend less ideas. Food ideas: Freshco chicken noodle soup @ $.67 is $.60 a can cheaper- and still just as good as Campbell's. Freshco Root beer @ $.97 per 2 litre bottle compared to Mug or A/W at $2.00 a 2 litre bottle. Still tastes fine. -Costco tip- watch out for their bundle packs, sometimes one of the two/or more items being sold together is almost out of date. Car ideas: When parking try to find a spot that will allow you to drive straight out, without backing up. If you have backing up to, do it with an already warmed up engine. saves a bit of fuel, each time. If there is nobody behind you, there is no need to rush up to that red light just to jab the brakes on; slow down early, and coast till it turns green. Getting a car moving is harder on gas than keeping it moving. Tire inflation is actually important, check to see you are inside manufactures guidelines. Fuel up when it is cold. do the math on how much a full tank of gas weighs, and consider hauling around less of it on a daily basis. Also how much extra stuff do you just haul around in that car but never use? Costco gas is cheap, doesn't take too long to pay off that membership fee, just in gas savings, never mind the stuff in their store. Seasonal sales: Valentines day coming up, and chocolate sure gets cheaper the day after Valentines day, same as after Halloween. Remember how damn hot it got last summer? Probably a decent time, now, to buy an air conditioner. Likewise as winter ends, snow shovels, and rock salt get cheap. Credit cards: I never used one, until I discovered I could get money back from using my card. Now almost everything goes on the card, and gets paid off every month. No fees, no interest; and every year I get back about $100 bucks. Also, kind of nice to have the money stay with me for the entire month, before it gets sent of to Master Card. Around the house; Turn the thermostat/heat down at night or when you are not going to be home. Simple to do, but simple to forget. Cooking and using the clothes dryer at night might mean the furnace doesn't come on for awhile. Toaster ovens take less electricity than the big one in the stove, if you are only cooking for one.
