I make trashcans out of paper grocery bags and plastic bags. They’re sturdy enough to use anywhere indoors, and by tossing out the plastic bags, I can keep using the same paper one! I can make unlimited trashcans for pennies! IYAMCHEAP

I use rechargeable batteries. They are more expensive at first, but they save you heaps in the long run. In my experience, they tend to last longer than normal batteries too. IYAMCHEAP

I go to Giant Eagle with my friends; we buy enough food and sweets to last two months, and we use my gas card. At Giant Eagle, you get gas points for gas holders, so I buy about ten. I then wait until I have a cheap price of gas per gallon, then I fill up my tank AND all my gas holders so I don’t have to pay when gas per gallon is expensive. IYAMCHEAP

In our country, there is a grocery store chain that sometimes throws away food months before the expiration date. So a few times a week, we raid their dumpsters. 12 pounds of chocolate wafers? Six 10-pacs of eggs? Our favorite cheese? Our freezer is always full of bread. Even the security guards think it’s a waste, so they always ignore our looting. IYAMCHEAP

I’ve taken into filling out the blank side of my grocery bill as a shopping list. That way, each time I go to the store, I have a handy list to go through and discard at the end, and receive a new one at the checkout. No paper wasted. IYAMCHEAP
