Penny Pinching Hints loves to give you hints on ways to save your money.
This time our tips also help you conserve and save!
Check these out:
- Save paper – Use newspapers and old calendars as gift wrap and save trees along with your money.
- Save materials – Panty hose was a great invention, and not only for gals’ legs. Use old panty hose as scrubbers, shiners, for storage, and even as pool skimmers. Why buy all that stuff when you can make-do with your left over hose!
- Save energy – Don’t turn on your kitchen or bathroom vent fans. They are blowing out either the cool or the warm air along with steam and odors, forcing either your AC or your furnace to work harder. Dollars out the roof top.
- Save the environment – Use fewer chemicals. Water and vinegar mix is as good as window cleaner; baking soda is as good a scrubbing agent with toxic chemicals, and one half a dryer sheet works as well as a whole one. Cleaning agents are expensive and not always eco-friendly.
- Save heat – Chimneys seem to heat, but they also let out a lot of air, sucked right up the flue. Many dampers are leaky. Buy an inflatable damper to seal your flue and stop that outflow of air, as well as dollars. You can save anywhere from $50 to $200 dollars with these dampers.
- Save by recycling – Don’t throw away pieces of left-over soap. Wrap the pieces up in felted wool or in an old cloth or melt them together, and you won’t have to buy so much soap.
When you save, you can save more than dollars. Doubling up on your savings, no matter what kind, seems like a good deal to us as well as for the environment!
