5 time and money-saving hacks #5frugalthings

Some time-saving hacks will cost you money – like investing in a dishwasher instead of washing by hand or getting a taxi rather than getting the bus, grocery shopping on line rather than doing it yourself. Yes, cutting time can often mean increasing cost. But it really doesn’t have too. Here are 5-time saving hacks that will also save you money.

 

  1. Do encourage kids to wear only put clothes in the wash if dirty. By habit many kids now simply put the clothes they have worn that day into the laundry without checking if they are dirty. there really is no need encouraging them to check and see if the item can go back to their cupboard to be worn another day ill decrease your laundry/ironing time and save you money too.
  2. Double batch cooking saves you time by having a second meal in the freezer already homecooked and ready to go AND it saves you money by making sure that all the ingredients get used up rather than thrown out.
  3. Write a list before you go shopping – and stick to it. This will keep your time and money focused and deliberately rather than randomly spent.
  4. Drinking more water will save you time making tea/coffee and hitting Starbucks and will cost zilch.
  5. Cancel your magazine subscriptions this will save you money and time wading through all those ads (which will probably tempt you to spend anyway)

So these are super simple arent they and the list could definitely be expanded.

What time and money saving hacks can you think of?

    Batch cooking dishes like bolognaise and curries is so easy – I always do it and freeze extra portions.

    I guess my big time and money saver is meal planning. It stops me standing in front of the fridge (with the door open) having that “what do you want for tea?” “Oh I don’t mind”/”no I don’t fancy that” conversation. I know meal planning takes time but I try and do it at work when it’s quiet – time that would otherwise be spent clock watching!
    Your ideas are all great especially the shopping list. I always overspend if I don’t make one (and remember to take it with me!!). I’m not going to swap my tea for water though, some days it’s all that keeps me going ??.

    Agree with all of those. The laundry thing still drives me mad. If you have worn an item for an hour and aren’t a hod carrier, it does not need to go in the wash!!

    We do a lot of batch cooking! Definitely saves time if you’re working and have kids.
    We have a bad habit of chucking clothes in the wash after one wear.. need to get better at that
