Stop Buying These 10 Items To Save Money

Who doesn't like to save a few dollars, especially with the current state of the world?

As I get older, I'm trying to get wiser about what I spend money on. It's so easy to waste money on items we don't need because we want it at the moment and it's cheap. Here' a list of ten things I no longer waste money purchasing. Comment below with your suggestions. 

1. Cable - If you have Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime video, there's really no need to pay for cable. 

2. Stationery - A trip to Target used to mean grabbing a pretty notebook, pencils, and stickers no matter what. Now, I have several journals and stickers that I don't use. Now, I avoid the supplies section and use what I already have. 

3. Subscription services - The costs of subscription services add up quickly, and there's no guarantee you'll love what you get each month. 

4. Gym membership - Most gyms aren't open right now, so I've seen more people than ever at the park jogging, walking, and enjoying the fresh air. Try following workout videos on YouTube, and you can use cans, milk jugs, and exercise bands for strength training. 

5. Bottled Water - Instead of buying bottled water, invest in a good filter, or get a water dispenser. I love our Primo water dispenser, and it saves us so much money each month. 

6. Fabric softener - I can't remember the last time I bought fabric softener. I don't think it's necessary, and I'm sure there are DIY alternatives.

7. Shaving cream - Baby oil is a great alternative to shaving cream, and you're legs will be silky smooth when you're done shaving. 

8. Books - Instead of paying full price, visit your local thrift store and buy used books online. 

9. Makeup Remover - I have a morning and nighttime routine that works really well, and gets my skin squeaky clean. Makeup remove remover ends up being a waste of time and can tempt someone to avoid doing their full nighttime routine. 

10. Greeting Cards - Most people don't keep greeting cards that long (unless you're me), but a handmade card from the heart ends up on refrigerators and scrapbooks to be treasured.
