Frugal Friday – 10 Tips for Living Frugally

July 11, 2008 at 11:11 am 2 comments

Below are a few frugal tips from a recent issue of A Lady in Waiting:

  1. Limit your cleaning products to one or two that will handle all sorts of jobs, instead of having separate cleaners for windows, floors, showers, etc.
  2. Don’t drink juices “full strength” – adding a little water will stretch the number of glassfuls you get without diluting the flavor.
  3. Ask your grocery store for its policies on almost-out-of-date foods.
  4. Use a debit card with a rewards program for all your big purchases. Points can usually be redeemed for gift cards that you can give as gifts or use to treat you family to a nice dinner out.
  5. Use overripe fruit in smoothies.
  6. When cooking chicken breasts, slice them horizontally in half to make two thinner pieces. The portion is still sufficient for most appetites and it doubles the amount of meat you can serve (and it cooks faster, too).
  7. Buy refilled or recycled ink cartridges.
  8. Don’t toss paper that’s only been printed on one side – cut it into squares to use for jotting down notes.
  9. Use a clothesline for drying your clothes.
  10. Stay home! It’s easier to be content with what you have when you’re not surrounding yourself with things you don’t have.
