The other day a lady appeared on T.V. via one of our local stations to tell us dimwits how to make things last longer which will help us save money.
This is what she shared. Add a little water to the soap pump bottle when it gets low so as to use up all the soap in the bottle. Yes, good idea.
Next she shared about heating up the syrup by running the bottle under hot water to soften the syrup and then you can poor it out. Geesh! She could save money by putting it in the micro for a couple of seconds instead of running it under hot water.
This is all I heard. I had to laugh out loud for a bit then because I've been doing this and more for years. I thought everyone did these things. I know you ladies do all kinds of things to save a penny here and there. We could have done this local commercial to all the
We use washable storage containers for years like my old friends up in the corner there. We use bar soap and save the little pieces to make another usable hunk. I used to even melt excess wax out of candle holders and jars to make new candles. Not so much anymore though.
Do you use your tea bag more than once? How about refilling the water bottles (but that's bad for your health now) or using a sports bottle? Re-using pots from flowers? Trying to save your garden flowers over until the next year just to see if how many make it?
I'll bet some of you make crafts with cans, lids, old jeans, shells and glass from the beach, etc. You name it, I'm sure some of you have done it.
So if we've been doing these money saving things for all these years, how can we save more money now? We need new ideas. Come on Martha Stewart
If you feel so inclined, please share your money saving ideas. I have barely brushed the surface with my mini offering of ideas. Have fun with this ladies. It will help others out too.
