When I find a shirt or something I like while shopping for other things, I never buy it right away. I finish my shopping first and if I still want it at the end of the day, THEN I go back. IYAMCHEAP

I get my hair cut at the local beauty school for $5 bucks plus tip, instead of going to an expensive salon. Since they have professional stylists supervising, I’m not afraid of them messing the cut up, and my wallet thanks me! IYAMCHEAP

Every summer, my friends and I go blueberry picking, which around here charges by the pound. So, we’ll get something like three pounds of blueberries for $10, not counting the ones we eat while we’re picking. That alone saves us a lot on fruit. The extra blueberries either get frozen or turned into blueberry wine, which can be given out as gifts at Christmas. It’s fun, tasty, and I love it because IYAMCHEAP.

I get multiple uses out of plastic grocery bags. I keep several in my backpack to store my sweaty clothes after the gym, so they keep the rest of my stuff from getting stinky. When I get home, I dump the clothes into the hamper and keep the bag in the bathroom to use for a garbage liner. IYAMCHEAP.

When I buy something online, I always do a quick search of the website/company name and “discount” to see if there are any active discount codes. It only takes a few minutes to check and a few times I’ve found 10 or 20% off discount codes and even combined them with sale prices. I also use google to double check the prices of sales bargains (including Black Friday deals) to see if they are offered cheaper elsewhere as sometimes even the “sale” prices are not the best value for money.

Every time I go into a book store, I look for the stacks of discounted books. They usually have pretty good books for up to 75% off. IYAMCHEAP

Instead of buying shipping envelopes to send things, I reuse all my old ones that I had when I was online shopping. I never have to buy them. IYAMCHEAP

I like to do my grocery shopping on Sunday mornings (or as early as the store opens on Sunday) because that’s when the day-old rack in the bakery section is loaded up. I get bread, buns, danishes, and sometimes even pies and cakes for half price. IYAMCHEAP
