Methods I By chance Save Cash…

“What do you set in your hair to stick with it?” – the barista requested after ordering my day by day latte.

“Simply hairspray! After which I twist to make the spikes.” – I excitedly retorted again, at all times up for a very good chat about hair 🙂

“Superior. I’m pondering of doing my hair like that subsequent.”

“YES! You must!! You’ll save a bunch of cash too as you are able to do it your self.” – I replied again, which I feel excited her greater than the precise hair type, and rightfully so! Girls’s hair is not any joke to keep up. My spouse drops $200-$300 each time, and he or she has to house it out greater than she likes simply so her frugal bones don’t snap in half!

However rocking the ‘hawk? FREE. All you want is an electrical razor, mirror, pair of scissors and the aforementioned hairspray.

As soon as armed up with these you’re set for years to wow all future passersby 😂

After all, I didn’t set out to save cash by carrying my hair like this – I simply dig it – but it surely’s been a pleasant unintentional perk certainly… I reckon I’ve saved at the very least a few thousand over the previous 15 years doing my hair this fashion, to not point out a great deal of time saved too because you don’t need to mess with scheduling and visiting appts each different month, and many others… You simply decide up the razor everytime you’re prepared and knock it! Best hair minimize ever – perhaps outdoors of being bald 😉

This received me pondering of different methods I inadvertently save too, and right here’s what I’ve provide you with to date… How about you?


My garments

I really feel like when your go-to outfit is denims and a tee you’re doing fairly good, frugality sensible. And minimalist-wise too, although once more in each circumstances it’s pure unintentional. The combo is simply probably the most coziest/best to rock! And as a rule, you’ll discover various holes in them too, all *earned* btw and never paid additional for, thanks very a lot 😂

I’ve additionally gotten higher about repurposing previous garments I now not put on anymore. Resembling earlier this summer season once I realized I wanted some new shorts however didn’t have the time – or want – to buy groceries… As an alternative, I rummaged by means of the field of donations I had in my basement ready to exit, after which professionally and methodically took sheers to a couple pants hiding there and reworked them into shorts with a few snips!

And voila!

Much like the ‘hawk it’s not everybody’s type, however for this homeboy it really works completely. And now provides me an extra again up plan for getting pants sooner or later too! “Denims don’t match in addition to I’d hoped? Possibly they’d be higher off as shorts! *Snip *snip *snip… DONE!”



If I might solely decide one meals merchandise to outlive on, it will be peanut butter. I swear, whoever invented it wants a Nobel prize as MY GAWD is it heaven’s fruit!! I’d truthfully pay $100 a jar if I needed to for it, however fortunately inflation hasn’t strangled it simply but, so I can take pleasure in my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with out scaring my pockets an excessive amount of.

And currently, I’ve been smearing it on one other of nature’s dessert too for a day snack: sliced apples! Not solely does it rival the style of chocolate or cookies [or enter any other types of junk food here], but it surely’s additionally HEALTHY so that you get an extra jolt of feeling good about your self on high of it! Low-cost and engaging – extremely advocate.

You understand these occasions when pals ask “ought to we Uber or stroll?”, nicely I select strolling 9 occasions out of 10 as a result of walks are superb… In addition they occur to price $0.00, however the pleasure from recent air and surroundings tops the $$ all day every single day, until it’s pouring out or 150 levels, during which case OK – roof over my head it’s!

But when I might I’d use my ft to go all over the place and never even personal any vehicles…. We do, due to children and the place we dwell and obligations blah blah blah, however even then at the very least we purchase used. In actual fact, I don’t suppose I’ve ever owned a model new automobile earlier than?! ***checks reminiscences*** Nope! By no means! Wow…

Now that one IS extra price-based for me, but it surely’s additionally a “this factor is simply too shiny and I don’t wish to stress out about scratching it each waking second!” sort deal. I swear once I hit that fireplace hydrant years in the past w/ my new-to-me Lexus and dented the bumper I instantly sensed a sigh of reduction… At the very least after ensuring water wasn’t going to spray throughout me 😂  However principally model new issues and me don’t combine nicely.

Each day needs/leisure

And lastly, it fortuitously doesn’t price that a lot to maintain me entertained on this world… Whereas now and again I do want one thing that could be dear, most of my day by day “needs” are fairly low cost: journey to the espresso store…. a brand new (used) guide… a skate round city… a beer with my brother…

Even the cash I gather are all “used” and appear to be they’ve been handed round some time! No excellent and glossy ones for me – even when they’re extra beneficial.

Possibly all this makes me “easy”, I don’t know, haha, however both approach I’m glad it’s how I used to be made as the alternative would require extra vitality to keep up 🙂

[Frugal reading, but not so frugal bookmark! Handy when you need one though :)]


So a number of methods I unintentionally save! After all, I additionally unintentionally spend extra in different areas too I’m certain which will make up for it, haha, however we’ll save that listing for one more day 🙂 Let’s hold at this time the day of successful!!

What are among the stuff you do this naturally saves you cash? Are you the alternative of me with any of those above?

It’s good to embrace such pure frugalness… Temptation kills us in so many different areas of life – gotta be grateful for the stuff it might’t contact!
