I frequently check for free MP3 downloads on Amazon. I’ve found some great new artists doing this, but if I don’t like the songs, they didn’t cost me anything. IYAMCHEAP.

When my kitchen sponge starts to get too old and smelly to use on dishes, it goes into the bathroom to be used when I’m cleaning my toilet, shower, etc. The cleaning chemicals cover up that “old sponge” smell, and I can beat up the sponge as much as I want and just toss it when it’s too worn to use. I get twice the life out of every sponge. IYAMCHEAP

Some fast food places (ex: Panda Express) have quick surveys on their back of their receipts that will earn you a free entree after you take it. I always try to remember to keep my receipts to get the free entree. If I don’t have a receipt, though, it’s easy to spot one that’s near a trash can or has been dropped. Just fill it out and get the free entree. Sometimes they even let you stack receipts for more free food. IYAMCHEAP

I was saving up to move out. Every now and then I would go to buy some unessential item. When I went to do that, I would stop and say to myself “With that money you could buy *some essential item that was roughly the same price that I would need for moving out.*” It really made me think twice about what I spent my money on.

I work at a popular retail store, though the clothes there are a little too expensive even with the discount I get as an employee. We also don’t have a return policy, so we get people who return stuff from up to a year ago. These clothes are usually 75% off for clearance, since it’s out of season, and I get another 20% off of that. There’s even been a time where I bought a cute skirt for $2.60, and a shirt for $3! I have a way of getting super cute clothes even though IYAMCHEAP.

I signed up for the Victoria’s Secret catalog for the coupons. They send out these $10 coupons with no minimum purchase amount, so I go in and get a nice lacy pair of panties wrapped up in tissue paper for like 50 cents whenever I have a coupon. Guilt free luxury, because IYAMCHEAP.

I buy wine in bulk from www.wineloverswarehouse.com.au. They buy overstock from good wineries, then repackage it. You don’t know where it came from originally, but their tasting notes are really good and I’ve never had a bad wine from them. I mix up reds and whites at $4-$5 a bottle to make a case and get really good quality wine very cheap without paying postage. IYAMCHEAP.

You can make vegetable broth out of edible vegetable scraps. Things like the ends of peas and carrots, and carrot and potato peels. You store them in your fridge or freezer until you have a reasonable volume, cover them in hot water and boil for a few hours. Just don’t add celery or anything that’s gone off. It usually tastes great, and when it doesn’t, you’ve lost nothing because it costs no money (its all from veggies you already bought) and almost no time as well. IYAMCHEAP
