Here’s how I’ve been saving money lately.
1. Watching YouTube Videos
Every week, Collin at Hip 2 Save shares the best deals at Target and Walgreens. By watching her videos, I was able to get 12 packs of Pepsi for $2 each and bottles of laundry detergent for $1!
2. Dug in the Trash
Yes, I dug in the trash to save $5!! When I realized that I had thrown away this grocery coupon, I went outside, opened up the trash bag, and dug around for the coupon. The neighbors probably thought I was crazy!
3. Holiday Sales and Coupons
On Veteran’s Day, JC Penny’s and Kohl’s both had coupons for $10 off $25 purchases. Both of the coupons were on their store app, so I didn’t even have to print off a coupon, and I was able to get a head start on Christmas gifts.
4. Grocery Shopping Every 2 Weeks
Nikki at Carry Grace shares her grocery hauls on her YouTube channel. Recently she has been saving money by grocery shopping every 2 weeks instead of every week. On the “off” week she only gets a few necessities. I started doing this as well and have been able to cut back on our grocery budget.
5. Made Pumpkin Puree
We bought a huge pumpkin for our outdoor fall decor. My husband was ready to get rid of it before it started rotting. But instead of tossing it, I made pumpkin puree out of it. It took some time to do, but now we have 12 cups of pumpkin puree.
6. Cut the Cable
We were in a contract with our cable company that would cost us more to cancel than to keep it. But last month, we were finally able to get rid of the cable and save big time on our bill! Netflix is much cheaper, and I love not having commercials!
7. Cooked a Batch of Beans
I bought 2 lbs. of dried pinto beans and cooked them up into 4 cups of refried beans and 4 cups of pinto beans that I can use in chili this fall and winter. This is about half of what I normally pay for canned beans.
