I have a collection of not-that-impressive things to share with you today!
But hey, over time, small savings do add up too. You can get big wins AND small wins working together.
1. I used Sonia’s work discount
I found some cotton bath towels at her store for a good price and since Sonia was with me, I was able to use her work discount.
Even 10% counts as something!
Also: a fresh new towel is an inexpensive way to make your everyday experience feel more luxurious.
2. I hit the clearance shelf at Sprouts
Whenever I stop at grocery stores, I always take a peek at the clearance rack. I can’t resist!
Of course, I never buy things JUST because they’re marked down, but I find useful things for a good price, I throw them into my cart.
This time I found a marked-down natural deodorant, a marked-down bar of natural soap, and an $0.89 bag of multi-colored popcorn kernels.
3. I changed my CVS Carepass billing to annual
I realized that my CVS care pass membership could go from $5/month to $4/month if I switched billing to annual.
So, I called and got it changed over.
(with a CVS Carepass, I pay $4/month and get a $10 store credit to use each month. That’s a 60% discount, which gets even better if you use that in conjunction with coupons and sales.)
4. I submitted my out-of-network bills online
This saves an envelope, a stamp, and the cost of printing a submission form.
But mainly this is a win because it is SO STINKING EASY. It takes me under five minutes now.
Online insurance receipt submission is 100% better than mail-in submission!
5. I dumped my salad spinner water into an outdoor pot
This is indeed a tiny win because our water bill for our entire household is usually around $30/month.
Why yes, these seedings ARE from marigold seeds I saved last year.
So this was probably a $0.000001 savings.
But still, it seems smarter to give the water a second use.
