    Switched to powdered soap for when my husband does the laundry, as he always uses to much of the liquid soap, but using the exact amount of the powered soap. I think it is because he doesn't see the line on the cap for the liquid. I wish they would have clear caps.

    Don't throw out any left overs!! With a little creativity, a meal can be created around left overs. I received some left over ham from family after our get together. I used half of that to make an Indonesian dish (Nasi) and the other half to make a casserole (Ham/Potato/Cheese). I was joking with my boys that we were living off charity for the two meals. Even a little left over rice can be used to make a fabulous type of stir fry....a little imagination goes a long way.

    I always take cutting of geraniums, busy lizzies etc to increase my chances of keeping them alive over winter. Plus I get extra free house plants.

    We shut off our propane hot water tank when we go away for more than 2 days, big savings there.


    ------------------------

    Also organize and take part in a dessert exchange around Christmas Holiday Season, get to try new desserts and share yours, also saves the effort, time, ingredients & hydro of cooking 9 different desserts for example.

    -------------------------

    Swap books with colleages, co-workers, neighbours etc....save $ and you get exposed to authors you never would otherwise read

    -------------------------------

    I cut my S0S pads the big ones into 1/4's as I don't use them that often and they end up rusting or getting thrown out. It's cheaper than buying the tiny ones that are just about the same size.

    -----------------------------------

    I try and BBQ as much as possible because it's faster & cheaper than the Hydro rates in Ontario

    -------------------------------------

    I try and do my baking before I have to use the oven or after my main course in cooked, so the oven is still warm.

    ---------------------------------------

    For those of you that use the dryer, set a timer so that you can rotate/switch your dry clothes out and your wet clothes in while the dryer is still warm

    In the summer when we travel to the cottage often we make our own ice for the coolers, etc...

    I also take 1 or 2 drinks with me if I am doing groceries or errands this way I will not feel the need to buy an overpriced pop or coffee while out, the savings add up considerably over a short period of time.

    Not so much a recipe but a cheaper way. So here we go.....
    First a trip to Dollarama and get
    1- Jcloths. These are durable and washable.
    2-Cleaning solution
    3- Suitable rectangluar with tight fitting lid.

    Put the cloths in container and pour solution on them. Put lid on and give a good shake. Open, turn cloths over, pour more solution on . Put lid on, shake again. Don't put too much on as the cloths will be too saturated and then you will have to wring them out. Just eyeball it until you are satisfied. Mark the container clearly as cleaning cloths. I keep it on the toilet tank for easy access and quick clean ups. Once I use a cloth, I put it in the laundry. I like using these as the can be washed and reused again and again. Just laundry them, re-fold and reuse. I like to wait once they all have been used and then can be all added to the container at once.

    Some people use paper towels such as Shop Towels. But I find if you are going to do this, you may as well get the commercial wipes to begin with.

    Hope this works for you as well as it does me. It was a start up cost of under $6.00 but I have saved far more than that using this method. Good Luck!

    Most people choose to send money in the bank but for me, the best way to save money is to buy gold reserves

    Cook meals at home instead of eating out. Have left overs for lunch the following day.

    Cut up starbucks napkins to use as oil-blotters. Those clean&clear ones are super expensive!

    Walk, or use public transportation.
