Single-Cup Brewing

Single-Cup Brewing

It is more efficient to brew one cup at a time and you can choose from a great variety. However, it can be very costly. The excess packaging also causes environmental problems.

Using regular ground coffee with a reusable filter in your single-cup brewer may be a little more work, but will save you money.

Microwave Popcorn

Popcorn is a great, healthy snack.

Instead of buying popcorn in microwave bags, one can also pop corn at home for much less than the bagged kind.

Bottled Water

Bottled water drinkers give 3 main reasons for their choice: 

  • Taste: Many claim their tap water tastes bad, but a simple pitcher filter can probably fix it.
  • Safety: Bottled water is not necessarily safer than public water sources. A high-end filter can remove impurities from tap water.
  • Convenience. A decent filter and a reusable bottle or stainless-steel flask can replace bottled water.
Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets are not that expensive but can cause other problems and health risks. Some of the chemicals used to produce a fresh scent are toxic, while others are known allergens. Dryer sheets can also damage certain types of clothes.

Reusable or DIY Dryer Balls can be used as an alternative.

Cable or Satellite TV

You don’t really need a cable or satellite connection to watch your favorite TV shows.

Cheaper alternatives include streaming, downloads, library discs or network TV.

Consider other money-wasters, for instance, in-app purchases in games, bank and credit card fees, or a lottery ticket.

Take a good look at every single expense in your budget and ask yourself if it is a good use of your money.

IDEAS

  • In Europe, iced coffee is more like a Frappuccino - a coffee milkshake with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and crushed ice.
  • The Japanese method involves brewing hot coffee and pouring it over ice, drawing out its fruity tastes.
  • Cold brewing consists of mixing coffee grounds and water and letting it sit in the fridge for at least 12 hours. It is more caffeinated and has a nutty, chocolatey, and less acidic flavour.
Check Your Personal Loan Rates

If you have a large balance on your credit card, call your credit card company and request a rate reduction. If you often pay on time, they may be willing to negotiate, or you can get a 0% balance transfer onto another card.

Many installment plans offer an interest rate reduction if you sign up for automatic debt repayment plans. They are convenient, save money automatically each month, and ensure you won’t miss a payment or incur a late fee.
