Frugal Tips 7.29.09


Daily Frugal Tips:

1. Consider using less laundry detergent then what is recommended. Start by trying 1/4th less to see if the clothes still come out clean and fresh. (This will all depend on the brand you use really)

2. Reuse plastic shopping bags for trash bags. They fit well inside a bathroom trash can or put one in your laundry room for your dryer lint.

3. When you go to a fast food restaurant, order a smaller sized soda with no ice. The soda comes out of the machine already chilled and you will get more if you get no ice.

4. When making tacos, use 1/2 ground meat and 1/2 brown rice. Once it's seasoned, no one will notice the rice.

5. Put your dishwashing soap in a pump style bottle and dilute with a little bit of water. It will still be enough to wash your dishes and you will be able to stretch the bottle of soap.

6. After 1/3rd of the bottle of shampoo has been used, replace it with water and shake well. It will still clean your hair, but the bottle will last longer.

7. Check to see if your washer has a timed cycle. Try using it instead of the full wash. It would save on electricity and water.

Here is the thread on the Disboard I am following, if you want to read ahead.

if you do save the dryer lint, there is a recipe for making play dough with it in the Super Baby Food book.
