Realistic Ways to Save Money in these tough times No 2

Realistic Ways to Save Money in there Tough times… continued…

  • Get haircuts, get your hair done less often – Judy had commented on “haircuts”… I had spoken to my barbercash_pocket regarding the effects the economy has had on his business. He had said people are waiting longer between haircuts (It is consistent with Judy’s comment.) I had also gone from a haircut every 5 weeks to 8-9 weeks (to the point of people making comments).
  • Wash your hair every other day. (If you do not have greasy hair that should not be gross.)
  • Unplug “things”. Unplus the power cord when not charging something. Sometimes they are still using a little electricity.
  • When your bottle of shampoo gets half empty, add a little water. This will make it last longer. Shampoo is mostly water anyway.
  • Do the same thing for hair gel. When your bottle of hair gel gets half empty, add a little water.
  • Run your dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer late at night when utilities are less expensive. (Is this true?)
  • If you are getting rid of a older car, see if it may be worth more to you to donate it to charity. At times they may give you a better net when you calculate it against your taxes.
  • Instead of going out, invite friends to your home. Having drinks at home is dramatically less expensive than out at a bar or restaurant.
  • If you are going out, invite friends over for drinks before hand (instead of having drinks while waiting for a table.) That will save significant money. — Remember don’t drink and drive!
