We all have those silly things that we do to save money. They may take time, or not be appealing to anyone but ourselves, yet we do them anyway.
Things like reuse a piece of foil that you used to cover a dish while warming or cooking something in the oven. If it’s still clean, why not use it again?
- Saving scraps of soap, material, pieces of paper to reuse.
- Collecting things from a friend to reuse for a project.
- Buying larger quantities or sizes of food than you will actually consume.
- Taking things just because they are free.
None of these are necessarily bad, but if you don’t reuse the items that you are saving or in the case of food (or materials) waste the extra – are you saving money? Buying an item just because it’s cheap or free is wasteful in itself and cheats another person who really wants the item.
