Start Saving Right Now! #1


Make a list of the top 10 house hold items you that use the most and/or tend to cost you the most.  Begin to watch for coupons and sales on these to reduce your spending right away where it will count the most.  Also, begin to create a stock pile of these items so that you are never forced to pay full price because you ran out.

For us the household items (non-grocery) we use that cost the most that are:

  • Toilet paper
  • Baby Wipes
  • Dish Washing Detergent
  • Laundry Soap
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner
  • Lysol Wipes
  • Bar Soap
  • Face Wash
  • Zip-lock baggies
  • Tin Foil

Spend a few minutes deciding what your “Top 10” list is.  This easy step will help you save money right away.   Today’s the perfect day to start!

Hint: Be sure to pull your two inserts from your (or your parents) Sunday paper before it gets recycled this week!

    Kari! You need to share this information with our mops group! Please say yes!!! Please, Please!
    You don’t have to do it lecture style. We could set up as an interview style. I could ask you questions, you answer them. So it would be like we are just talking. What do you think?

    another great tip is to get coupons from people like your family members who get the newspaper but don’t clip coupons. Ask them to put them aside for you each week. You can never have too many coupons.
