Below are things I have been doing to save money and most would find it unusual but hey, all in the name of peso-pinching.
- Bring breakfast to work so I can drink freshly-brewed free coffee
- Reusing floss - Gross? Shut up! Do you throwaway your toothbrush every after use? No! So is floss! I do run it with hot water every after use and besides, I am not sharing it with anybody so it's a-okay!
- Making reusable sanitary napkin/pads
|Hand-sewn by Your's Truly|
Cut out old tee-shirts in the shape of the regular sanitary pads with wings, put few layers in the middle, sew it by hand, put some snap buttons on the "wings" so it won't budge while wearing it and voila, reusable pads! Eco-friendly and I save tons! Gals, let me know if you want to know how I did mine and I'll make a separate,detailed post.
- Toilet Flushing Mantra: "When it's yellow, let it mellow, when it's brown, flush it down"
Unusual, right? Some might say it's "ewwww, gross" but, how do you think I was able to saved up for my First Million Pesos,My First Million Pesos in Stocks and how do you think I'm worth 5 Million Pesos? Because I made frugality and cheapness my friends so don't judge. ha!
So fellow kuripots and peso-pincher, what's your unusual way of saving money?
