Saving to me has become 2nd nature. I love to keep the money in my pocket. I do a lot of things now (habits) that I really dont have to think about anymore.
Buying foods when on sale.
Cooking own food, in big batches so to save time/effort.
Bake own cakes, sweets then cut into portions and freeze.
Never buy coffee out, make my own and take along, so easy.
Water is nice to drink, very thirst quenching and goes with almost everything.
Ivory soap is my beaty treatment, get so clean and fresh. expensive cosmetics is not really going to make me prettier, but sleep will.
Having beans 2 or 3 times per week is nice, low cost, tasty, satisfying, healthy, so easy to make and a break from meat.
My spa is to have long warm shower, then get so relaxed to go and rest in bed.
I find u tube is great, instead of TV.
Enjoy listening to the radio, you only have to listen.
Buy most of my furniture used, it works well for me and my wallet.
Instead of a gym, I like to hike and swim in lakes, ooh love the fresh air!
Saving time: It is ok not to have everything sparkling clean all the time: saves on time and on cleaning products.
Mizer driving style: hyper miling, why not, you will get red lights anyways.
Sell what you dont need or want, or give to good charity as Salvation Army.
Be greatful for many blessings: health, peace of mind, your desire to be frugal, not feeling need to keep up with the jones’s., not smoking / drinking.
Pack your own lunch, of course, I would not spend $5 for lunch.
Take care of your teeth, will save lots of money and give a nice smile.
Go deodorant free on your days off - let your skin breathe.
Air dry laundry, so easy while i sleep.
Have fun without spending money: picnic, window shopping, walks/hikes, walk somebody’s dog, bike, home made pizza night. Have useful hobbies.
Do a lot of substituting in cooking if some ingredients are expensive, it works quite well most of the time.
I cut my tooth paste tubes open when near empty, there is still a lot of tooth paste in there to be used up.
Some treats are much better if you make them yourself and a tonne cheaper such as sushi, vietnamese spring rolls.
Be organized: saves time, have a home for everything.
Declutter, why have a mess when you can have tidy?
Wash your hands as soon as you get home, avoid getting sick.
Just live simple, it is so simple and easy.
Dont sweat the small stuff, you really have much bigger fish to catch.
Enjoy the night sky, beautiful stars, what an amazing light show.
Listen to the rain, so cozy.
Look at the sun set, so special.
And it is free!
Just be yourself, you are better that way. No fake.
