Grocery Bag

Get yourself a cotton grocery bag that you can use all the time instead of buying one of those plastic bags every time you are at the checkout. You’ll save money and it’s better for the environment to not buy the plastic bags.

Big Bottle Of Soap

If you are like me and you want to make your bathroom look all cute so you get yourself one of those cute small hand soaps just because they look cute, well then let me give you this tip! Get yourself a cute soap dispenser and when you are out to buy soap to put inside your dispenser, buy one of those big bottles of soap. This way you save money since you are not buying one of those small bottles of soap all the time, and you get a lot of extra soap, how great is that?!

Freeze Meat Down

Buy meat when it’s on sale and freeze it down. If you know that you’ll be eating meatballs in a few weeks and you know that they are on sale now, why not get them while they are on sale and freeze them down until you want to make them?

Make A Grocery List

If you make a grocery list you will be more likely to only buy what’s on the list and nothing else. You won’t be stressed out on what to buy when you are at the grocery store when you have your grocery list right there! So start creating grocery lists in your notes on your phone and check each item off that you buy. 

Dish Soap + Water

Another way to save money is when you are almost done with your dish soap you know that there is always a little bit of amount left at the button but it’s just hard to get out, just pour a little bit of water and shake the bottle, the dish soap will be a bit watery but hey now you have a bit more dish soap that you can use for a while instead of going out to buy a whole new bottle of dish soap!

Grocery Shop Once A Week

As the title says, only grocery shop once a week! This way you would have planned out what you are going to eat for that week and you be spending more money than you are planning.

But it’s so much good for you to have a job since you will have something else to do instead of studying all the time, and you’ll earn some money that you can save up for something! So go get yourself a part-time job and start earning some money!!
