I buy bread at the discount bread stores. It is often 2-3 day old bread that is less than 1/2 the cost of even sale bread at the grocery store. So I get the really healthy fiber rich breads for a lot less. IYAMCHEAP!

Every time I get wings, I save the towelettes I don’t use and stash them in my car. IYAMCHEAP

Whenever I get things sent to me in boxes, I save the boxes and packing materials, and reuse them to send things to other people. It saves the hassle of trying to find a box, and since one of my friends lives in a country where she has to buy boxes to ship things, it saves her money. Plus, it amuses the heck out of me when a box has clearly traveled a lot. IYAMCHEAP

Going to Disney World was really expensive, so I was trying to save money on food while I was there. I came up with the concept of Food Court PB&J. My hotel’s food court sold packages of two slices of bread for 50 cents. I then took packets of peanut butter and jelly from the condiment section and made PB&Js. I’d make three of them in the morning before I went to the parks and take the extras with me to eat during the day. IYAMCHEAP

Instead of buying a bunch of expensive gifts, make baked goods if you have a knack for baking. Homemade cookies and brownies always go over well, and save you a bunch! IYAMCHEAP

My grandfather washes his bendy straws and reuses them. IYAMCHEAP (Actually, he is cheap.)

I cut my make-up removing wipes in half, carefully use both sides and I make sure to use the very edges! This way get twice as many uses out of a package because IYAMCHEAP.

I hate wasting anything. To save money and reuse old things, I turn old cards from Christmas or birthdays into gift tags. I cut off the back flap, use a paper cutter to cut out the main picture on the card, and a corner rounder to give it a more ‘finished’ look. I can either use tape to tape it onto a gift, or a hole puncher to tie it onto something! IYAMCHEAP
