Water is healthy and doesn’t cost anything. If you want to be really healthy you can buy a water filter. The cost is far less than any other beverage. Drinking coffee, tea, sodas, and other beverages not only costs you your health it drops a pretty penny. Drink water.
Buy Second-hand Clothes Minimally
Buying second-hand clothes save oodles of money. I have saved hundreds of dollars over the last two years by buying good used clothing at the local thrift store. Choose classic clothes that never go out of style and buy only what you really need.
You can actually save money and be healthier by eating raw. Keep things simple by eating foods that are in season and commonly grown such as apples, oranges, celery, carrots, and other such juicy wonders. No need for fancy equipment when you have a knife and bowl. This saves electricity as well because you never turn on any appliances but an occasional blender. Grab and go!
Read Free Books
We read free books on our Kindle and Sony Reader. The classics are all available at no charge. There are also many books in romance, exercise or fitness, mystery, thriller, and other categories by new authors that are free. There is no end to the money that you save.
Exercise for Free
Go back to the basics with exercise for free. Run, walk, use body weight exercises, and yoga without using an expensive gym or driving to your exercise destination. Using these basics saves you tons of money, is convenient, and helps you be healthier.
Use the Internet
Using the internet to its full potential saves you money. There are often full length programs online that you can watch for free as well as endless free reading and games. Whether you choose to pay a reasonable monthly fee for internet service or go to the library for free use of a computer is up to you. In the long term its still less expensive than buying movie tickets or going out.
Work From Home
There are jobs out there that you can work from home legitimately. Medical transcription, paralegal, and freelance work are all examples of jobs that you can do from home. This saves you transportation, clothing, and other costs. Not everyone can work from home but if you have a dedicated space for your work as well as a routine schedule that you keep it makes for success.
Be Mindful of Resources
Being mindful of resources saves you money. Turn out the light when you leave a room. Keep the thermostat at one temperature in every season. Use only the water that you need such as taking a shallow bath instead of a long shower. Buy only what you truly need. Stop using convenience products such as paper products, fast food, and processed food. This saves tons on all accounts.
Stop Keeping Up With the Jones
Anyone can save a vast amount of money if they stop buying things because they are trendy or status symbols. Comparing yourself to others material wealth is a dangerous as well as ridiculous game and it makes for a sad existence. Becoming a minimalist family hasn’t deprived us of anything. Its led us to a less stressful and chaotic life and helped us recognize the value of things.
