I plan meals around the sales going on at my local grocery store, shopping once or twice a week and keeping my pantry well stocked. I also love to find local farmers markets or other small produce markets to get fresh produce and baked goods cheaper than I would at the grocery store. IYAMCHEAP

I wait until after Christmas for toys to go 75% off, buy them, and save them for next year. $20 Polly Pockets for 5 bucks? Why not? IYAMCHEAP

Whenever the weather is good enough for yard and garage sales, I cruise around town when they’re covering everything up. Usually, the free boxes have some interesting things I can use or give as gifts. IYAMCHEAP

I make almond milk at home. It comes to about half price of cowmilk (30 almonds/litre) and I spare on things that are good for the environment (packaging, advertisement, cattle grazing etc.). It doesn’t even have to be refrigerated. Look the recipe up–it takes 5 minutes every 3 days. IYAMCHEAP

I frequently go grocery shopping with my friends at a chain that has a card which accrues gas discounts based on how much you buy. They buy most of the stuff, I scan my card, they get the in-store discounts, and I get the gas points. The best part: I typically fill up the gas tank twice a month. IYAMCHEAP

I make my own housecleaners with vinegar, baking soda, and salt. Cheaper than Windex and Pledge, eco-friendly, and easy! IYAMCHEAP

I ask my dentist for any sample toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, and toothpaste she can spare. Dental product salespeople give these to dentists for free. My dentist always has tons and she’s happy to get rid of them. Since I see the dentist twice a year, I get enough toothbrushes to last the whole year, using a new one every 8 weeks! IYAMCHEAP

Nearly all of my clothes are hand-me-downs. I will frequently refer to them by a name, but it’s not the name of the designer. It’s the name of the person I got them from. IYAMCHEAP
