8 Extreme Ways to Save Money

21 Jun

I’m serious about saving money, but the following tips are a little to extreme for me:

  1. Keep dog and cat fur that they shed, to stuff pillows with.
  2. Keep dryer lint to stuff pillows with.
  3. Use cloth toilet paper (yes, I have actually heard of a family that did this).
  4. Use hand signals when turning in your car, so your blinker bulbs will last longer.
  5. Take fewer showers, and on the rare occasion you do shower, skip the soap and shampoo to save even more money!
  6. By 2 ply toilet paper and pull it apart to make one ply.
  7. Not going to the doctor or dentist when you really need to.
  8. Using your fallen out hair to scrub things with. One of the sites I get weekly tips from actually had a lady suggest this! The next week, they apologized for the “gross” tip! lol

    haha! Way to funny! šŸ™‚ Who knew that I was being extravagant when throwing away my dryer lint and dead hair?! Btw, if someone is frugal enough to keep dryer lint, why are they using a dryer to begin with? Why don’t they just hang their clothes? haha, things that make you go hmmm….

    Ummm…with the amount of hair I lose, I could probably make a NEW pillow šŸ™‚ That was funny about the comment on dryer lint and line drying! Good catch!
