Ten Tips for Tuesday: Money Saving Round One

Ten Money Saving Tips

(*Sorry to all my readers for this Tuesday’s post for being late. God says that I am a daughter to him first, and a wife to my husband second. So on Tuesday I was spending time with the hubby. Better late than never!)

1. Don’t bother spending money on store-bought spice blends that are FULL of salt and preservatives and cost an arm and a leg. Instead, take a few minutes to research spice blends and rubs online and on your next lazy afternoon throw a couple together. Store them in air-tight containers to protect the flavor of your hard work. Remember, spices should be replaced within one year so keep track of how long your blends have been around and renew them accordingly.

2. Save money by using natural products to clean with. Use products like white vinegar, baking soda, salt, lemon, and essential oils to clean your home, car, and even your work place naturally. You most likely already have these things in your cupboards anyway. Don’t waste your left over lemon from tea or cooking. Instead, dip the flesh of your juiced lemon in salt and clean the bottom of your copper pans or any other copper you have lying around. The salt is your abrasive and the acid in the lemon gets tough on all that grime and with a little scrubbing your copper will be right back to its old self! For those of your who are skeptics, know that vinegar truly will disinfect your surfaces. If you want proof, fill one spray bottle with peroxide and one with white vinegar. Go to your sink or any grim-filled area that you need to clean. Spray the area first with peroxide and watch it bubble away. Follow up with the vinegar and let it sit for a minute or two. Rinse the area well (if you want, the smell will go away either way, rinsing just speeds the process), then dry, and follow-up with the peroxide. If you’ve done a good job cleaning and you let the vinegar sit for a minute or two, your peroxide won’t fizz the second time. Read the rest of this entry »
