They Did What? Top 5 Silliest Ways to Save Money

Posted by flsquared on March 11, 2009

When I started this blog, I mentioned that I tended to run across two types of information when it came to saving money: “common sense” methods that were things that I already do (or specifically choose not to do) and “extreme” penny pinching.  

The following are some of the funniest ways that I have heard about people saving a dime:

  1. Separating the two-plys of toilet paper.  And limiting your family to a certain number of squares per use.
  2. Reusing envelopes that businesses send you for personal mail.
  3. Making “lemonade” in a restaurant from tap water and sugar packets.
  4. Saving soap chips and putting them into a plastic bottle with a bit of water to make “liquid soap”.
  5. Turning your underwear inside out to wear again before the wash.

What others have you heard?  Or tried yourself???
