Tuesday's Tip 26: Get Creative

in Frugal Series, Tips & Basics

For products in your home, try to think of other ways to use. For example, if you’re running low on coffee filters and can’t find a great deal, try a paper towel. Or, vice versa, if you’re low on paper towels. Coffee filters are the perfect size and shape to cover a plate in the microwave and they are cheaper than paper towels.
Other tips I’ve heard is to substitute your shaving cream with conditioner. Of course this only works if you don’t have extremely sensitive skin. You can also cut pantyliners in half to use as breast pads when nursing!
Once you start thinking outside of the box, you can find more uses for your cheaper products and save your more expensive item for times when only they will do.
