This isn’t exactly what you think it is. Do you take children out on a treat? Each birthday my children get to go to Starbucks and get one of their smoothies. One way I don’t spend $20 on smoothies for all of us, is to ask for 2 smoothies split into 4 cups– two for the price of one, or in my case four for the price of two.
Many times I have a small project I want to accomplish and usually this requires only a little bit of supplies. Asking around for leftover paint, nails, even 2x4s have helped saved us a lot of money in the long run but also use up items that normally would get tossed. This has even extended to asking for leftover newborn diapers on a for sale page on Facebook. Think outside the box!
