RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
Would you wash your
drinking straws to save money? The Diva of Discounts does and from routine to extreme -- here are eleven ways you can start saving today.
the winter after cooking, I crack the oven door to let the excess heat into the
house-I did pay for that heat!
joined a community-supported agriculture program for buying fresh, local
produce. The prices are often cheaper than commercial chains plus they give
away freebies every time I shop.
save seeds from vegetables we eat to grow in the spring.
saved yogurt containers to start the seeds.
of containers, Chinese food and lunchmeat containers make perfect Tupperware.
We can easily see the leftovers that need to be eaten.
leftovers and non-pork products supplement my dog's dry food. We rarely buy wet
dog food and the vet says he's in excellent health.
7) I've started recycling metal. In two trips I've made about $30.
codes on the inside of Coke caps can be redeemed online for fuel savings. Every
14 caps gets me 10 cents off a gallon with the Fuel Rewards Network. I also get
free PowerAde coupons using Coke points.
discovered the power of bleach. Not only does it remove all that icky stuff
from the shower, it also kills moss and mildew growing outside surfaces, like
on my roof and deck.
I eat out- I don't pay for kids meals. We choose to eat at restaurants that
participate with kids dine free. For every adult meal you buy, you get one kids
meal free. The card costs 20 dollars and lasts for three months, but I pay half
that buying though Groupon and Living Social.
the first time in 20 years, I got a credit card. It's a Kroger 1-2-3 Card that
rewards me for shopping. I use it to pay for just about everything making sure
to pay it off every month. In a year, I've gotten more than 100 dollars worth
of free groceries.
