I hate staying in overpriced cramped hotels. Way better deals can be found at vacation rentals. Pile in a bunch of friends in a SUV, all chip in 4 gas and drive to the nearest beach. Split the cost of the rental 4, 6, 8 ways and cook the majority of our meals at the house or condo and $AVE! Awesome deals can be had last minute too.
i needed a new face wash and wanted to try one from a highend beauty store. instead of just getting the facewash, i got a kit they sold that had the face wash, moisturizer, and toner for about 40$ less than what they would cost individually. plus, since i had someone help me pick out some eye makeup, they gave me samples of some products. so I got what i came in for, plus loads of free extras, for a lot cheaper than it would have been if i bought them all seperate! iyamcheap!
Whenever I go to the movies, I always get a large popcorn. When I leave, I’ll get a refill to take home. Not only I am stretching the dollar (or in this case almost $7.00) but I have popcorn to last a few days after. IYAMCHEAP
Instead of hiring a moving company, a friend agreed to help me by driving several short trips in his car between my new and old places with all the boxes, suitcases, and dismantled furniture. We even fit my 6.5″ bed poles in…by rolling down the front right and left backseat windows, easing the poles diagonally in, only tiny bits of either end sticking out. I held them in place as he drove one last time. IYAMCHEAP!
Rather than spend a ton of cash on a new rug for the living room, I went to a carpet remnant store and got an 10’x12′ piece of brand new carpet for $20. No one can see that it’s not bound at the edges when the edges are hidden under furniture! None of my friends know IYAMCHEAP.
My family often neglects vegetables. I moved the vegetables from a fridge drawer to a shelf. I also wash and prepare veggies as soon as I buy them, such as by removing the leaves of radishes, washing them and storing them in a bowl. For lettuce, I cut off 1-2 cm of the bottom of the stalk, and store it in a plastic container with water in the bottom, like a vase of flowers. Veggies last longer and get eaten more often! IYAMCheap
I like shopping on Taobao, which has more choices and prices are cheaper than entity stores. Sometimes, when I take a fancy to a pair of shoes or a piece of clothes in stores, I will try to search on Taobao and the price is much cheaper. I believe that fashion on the internet spreads faster than stores.And goods prices in China are cheaper than overseas, as I know, there are many customers like shopping in China, and have saved much money. In addition, some have done a business. Thanks IYAMCHEAP
Buying in bulk is great, but WHAT you’re buying is just as important as HOW MUCH of it you’re getting. Boneless skinless chicken thighs are usually cheaper, and more flavorful, than breasts. They’re not as dry when cooked, and can be used in just about any recipe where chicken breasts are called for. Yeah, they’re a little higher in calories, but it’s worth it to me, because IYAMCHEAP.
