Paved Roads are Best for Frugal Living

E-mail Print PDF

If you’ve been working hard to get the best gas mileage possible, there’s good reason to come up with new routes that only include flat, paved roads.

Sure, it’s often the dirt or gravel roads that are the most scenic and that give us a nice break from the hustle and bustle of street lights and stop signs. But, when you drive on these unpaved surfaces, your vehicle’s engine works that much harder to turn your wheels. Driving on surfaces where it’s hard to get traction will always cost you more in gas.

So, while you don’t have to forever swear-off the scenic route for frugal living, just don’t make it a habit of driving on these rough roads every day if you can.

Prevent Dust with this Frugal Living Tip

E-mail Print PDF

I don’t know too many people that love to spend their time dusting, so if you’re like me, you would love to learn new ways of preventing the need for this household chore altogether. Okay, today’s frugal living tip may not get you out of your dusting duties forever, but it will reduce their frequency.

One of the most effective ways to decrease the amount of dust in your home is to ensure that your air conditioner and furnace filters are cleaned on a regular basis. Not only will this keep the amount of dust down, but it will also allow these units to run more efficiently, saving you more money.

Make it a habit of checking and cleaning these filters every other month and pick up a new hobby to fill the time you used to spend dusting.

Save Power When Using the Self-Cleaning Function on Your Oven

E-mail Print PDF

That self-cleaning function on your oven sure is handy, isn’t it? The only problem is that it requires a large amount of energy to get the temperature of the oven high enough for the cleaning function to work.

To make this tool a little more frugal living friendly, consider planning to clean your oven after you’ve used it and, preferably, the broiler. This way, the temperature of the oven will already be warmer than if the self-cleaner had to bring the temperature all the way up from zero. If the broiler has been used, the oven is more than half way there!

It’s easy to save power. Just learn to adapt aspects of your daily routines to make them a little more conducive to frugal living.

Wash Produce When You Need it & Reduce Food Cost

E-mail Print PDF

Do you find you’re tossing foods from your fridge before you even get to use them? One of the reasons this could be happening is if you often wash produce before putting it in the fridge.

Sure, it’s convenient to have a bowl of grapes or berries already washed and ready to go in the fridge, but the excess water that stays on produce can cause it to spoil. The same goes for choosing produce at the grocery store that hasn’t been doused in water by the store’s misters.

For frugal living and the sake of your grocery bills, only wash produce when you need it and as you use it.

Avoiding Mosquito Bites & Preventing West Nile

E-mail Print PDF

We’ve already shared a number of natural remedies for relieving the itch and sting of bug bites. But, with all of the talk of West Nile virus lately, we thought it would be a better idea to share an effective way to keep mosquitoes away.

In addition to wearing long clothing and using bug repellents, you can burn coffee grounds in a small dish or saucer. This way, you can enjoy the last days of summer without being swarmed by the virus-carrying pests that we wish were long gone by now.

While natural remedies are conducive to frugal living, prevention is just that much better.
