    Great advice! I stopped using paper towels when I realized I’m buying a new roll every week (that’s a lot of money per week). I converted my old T shirt to a rag. It has saved me a few bucks since then.

    I love the baking soda and vinegar trick. I’ll even boil a pot of hot water and use that too. I’m not ashamed to say I’ve used this method a handful of times.

    I should point out though, this method doesn’t work if you have a tree root growing into your pipes. That was fun.

    Saving money is effective way of keeping your earning without spending it. I loved what you post here. Keeping away from expensive restaurants can save us money. What i did was to bring bottle water whenever I go. It’s practically wise.

      I take my water bottle everywhere too. It really helps to save money from not buying drinks and even keeping you fuller longer.

    Thanks for the great tips. Personally, I feel that saving automatically is the most effective way to save money for me by far. What you don’t see you won’t spend.
