Give the gift of you

Instead of buying a gift, offer your help instead. You can mow the lawn, baby or pet sit, wash the car, run errands, etc., and it doesn’t cost you anything but your time.

Beeep…

Using your microwave can reduce your cooking energy costs by as much as 80%. Cooking times are shorter and your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard during the summer.

Do a closet dive

Do you really need a new wardrobe? Go through everything you’ve got and revive the buried outfits to feel fresh again.

Flip the switch

Turn off lights when you’re not in the house or in the room. Leaving 10 incandescent bulbs on for an hour a day adds about $24 to your annual electric bill.

Travel local

There are exotic places you could go, but how well do you even know the place you live? Save money by staying home and really explore your town or a neighboring community like a visitor would.

Hang in instead of out

You can be social without ever leaving your home. Invite friends or family over instead of blowing your entertainment budget on a night out on the town.

Patience pays off

When you really want to buy something, just wait. Putting some time between you and the item gives you a better perspective on whether you really need it.

Create memories

Making a gift for someone makes it personal and it can save you money. Your recipient will likely appreciate the homemade touch they can’t get from store-bought gifts.
