Painless Ways to Save One Hundred Dollars a Month or More

Here are some painless ideas to incorporate into your daily routine. Doing so will save you money each month.
Tip 1 If you use a drip coffee maker to brew a pot of coffee don’t throw away the coffee grounds. Simply add two full tablespoons to the top of once-used grounds. Brew as usual. This can save you at least $20.00 a month and the coffee tastes fresh on both days.
Tip 2I find 100% juice drinks too sweet for my taste. I dilute the juice with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water. You will use less, save calories and save ten dollars or more a month.
Tip3 Here is an oldie but goody that my parents used. Gently squeeze toilet paper rolls so the cardboard center doesn’t easily dispense huge amounts of toilet paper. Children in particular seem to use way more than they need. They can still use as much as they need but it takes a bit longer to roll around the holder. Guarantee it will quit unnecessary waste of paper.
Tip 4 When dinning in restaurants, forget sodas or other beverages. Ask for a plain water and slice of lemon. Squeeze the lemon juice into your water glass. Add sugar or sugar substitute from the table. The lemonade you have made tastes delicious, quenches your thirst and is free.
Tip 4Quit throwing 8-10% of your money away in coin- counting machines at grocery stores. Buy paper coin holders at the dollar store or ask your bank if they have any to give you. Usually they gladly give them away for free. Sort your coins and wrap them. Deposit them and save all of your hard-earned money.
Tip5Old t-shirts that are stained make perfect dusting and cleaning rags. Simple wash them , cut them to desired size, reuse them to clean up around the house.
Tip 6 Re purpose old square coffee tins and Pringles cans. Clean them up and cover them with sticky drawer lining paper. They make perfect color spots. Organize children’s odds and ends and even make cute banks when the plastic top is slit for coins to be placed in.
Tip7- Try coloring your own hair. It will save you expensive salon trips. Painting your own nails or learning how to apply your own false nails will save you $100.00 a month easily.


Reward Cards That Pay to Own

 There are many reward card available that are used to save you money. My favorite reward credit card is Discover.  They offer a certain percentage back on everything you charge on your card. So if you use it for gasoline, to pay your electric bills, groceries you will be receiving money right back for doing so. Just make sure to pay off the balance every month. Subtract it from your checking account and spend like cash. Before you know it hundreds of dollars will be coming back to you just for using a charge card. Wonderful rewards for chores you do every week anyway. Check out their $50.00 sign up bonus too. You just can’t go wrong. This link will take you to the Discover Bonus Page. Check it out to get started. .

   In less than six months of making Discover my primary credit card I have earned over $200.00 back. You can request a check and have it deposited into your checking account. You can also use the balance to purchase gifts from the Discover gift center. Either way you are earning money for things you do every day. Perfect way to start saving painlessly. 


Reward cards at grocery stores are free. Sign up for every one you go to to purchase things. Frys, Safeway, Drugstores such as CVS and Walgreens. Save and be rewarded. It adds up quickly and you can’t beat the special deals they give you for being a good customer at their store. Inquire at customer service and keep those free rewards cards handy. They usually come with a key chain variety that is easy to carry along with your keys. 

Another nice way to shop in bulk and still save money is Costco. Membership there is not free. However, if you have a close friend or family member that also has a Costco membership you can easily spit the cost of the huge quantities and reap the benefits of bulk buying. Another bulk purchase warehouse to look at is Sams Club. They are the large bulk store owned by Walmart. Buying in bulk really makes sense when you have young children that are going through diapers, and baby food at a large quantity rate. Make sure to use your membership card to take advantage of gasoline pumps run by Costco. They have super deals on tires and gasoline.
