Environmental Saving Tips

 

Saving on all Purchases

Buy only what you will use. The most expensive item is the one that spoils in the refrigerator or is never used.

Save money on groceries by planning out a weekly menu and sticking to your grocery list.

Buy in bulk.

Purchase and visit thrift stores regularly.

Purchase tires from Costco or other wholesale clubs. Simply put, they cost a lot less than buying them at the dealer or even a chain tire store.


I buy day old bread very cheaply and freeze it. Later, I take out what I need on a daily basis.

Buy generics, of course, they save you money.

Do holiday shopping right after the holidays. Use grocery bags for rubbish instead of buying kitchen trash bags.

Buy powered milk instead of regular milk. You will save a lot of money.


Buy big bags of food and repack to smaller sizes.

Leave the junk food at the grocery store. You will become healthier, and the savings will pile up.

I only buy meat from local grocery stores that is on sale for that week.

Figure out price per unit, and buy the item that's cheaper. However, if the larger item is cheaper, but you're not going to use all of it, get the smaller size.  Wasting food or milk just to get the cheaper prize per unit isn't very smart or moneywise.


Buy large cuts of meat, then cut it up and freeze it.

You can save money by buying non-name brand vegetables
in cans. The taste is ok too.

Items that we use a lot of during the month (paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, etc) are purchased in bulk at Sam's Club. They last us at least a month, sometimes longer.

Buy a large pitcher and use powders or concentrates (tea bags, fruit punches, kool-aid) instead of liquid drinks. Making the drinks at home saves us a lot of money.


Consider trying store-brand or generic versions of your favorite brands.

Send away for and follow up on rebates. After you buy a
product with a rebate, send in the form that day. Then mark your calendar to remind yourself to follow up with the rebate company if the check hasn't shown up.

Only purchase what you need. Pass on extended warranties. A $129 two year extension on a $300 product is just not worth it. Warranties are insurance, and we rarely need to insure such a small amount.

Avoid buying clothing that must be dry cleaned. You end up paying over and over for the item when it has to go to the cleaners, not to mention the trips to the cleaners.

Purchase from thrift stores and yard sales! AND turn off that light when you leave the room. Five minutes here & there adds up! I am a tightwad.
