  • Use vinegar & water or Peroxide & water to replace most of your cleaning liquids. Use on counters, floors (vinegar), toilets, sinks, windows, mirrors. Half and half solution in a spray bottle. Peroxide gets rid of more bacteria than bleach.

  • I have "pennies make dollars" running through my head when I'm shopping for food. If one brand of beans is 78 cents and the other brand is 84 cents, I'll 90% of the time purchase the cheaper one, even if I'm not familiar with it.

  • I never buy fast food, starbucks coffee, or anything "to go" if I can help it. Those dollars add up. I'd rather spend my money on a good meal at a nice restaurant.
