One way to save NOT to Waste it! is a new site that dedicated to help folks realize their unneccesary spending and "confess" this spending. You can also calculate your wasteful spending. I know, sounds like a "blame game" that may not be of interest UNLESS you actually think about it...we ALL are guilty of this from time to time or in a past where we weren't careful. I believe this site helps us to see where we can improve our spending efforts and maximize our dollar in a more meaningful way.

There are so many ways that we can stop the "waste"...for examples:

  • Turn of lights when you leave the room
  • Resist the urge to spend at the check out (the ever so popular Impulse does add up over time)
  • Do you really need that extra bottle of window cleaner that is on sale when you already have two bottles at home?
  • When buying it really important to buy an extra gift because it is on sale when you already have that person the "perfect gift?"
  • Don't throw out cans ....recycle them in some fashion, donate, take to a recycling center, an Art Room (hmm...I am collecting to do some art projects with my students and cans I don't use...go to my fifth graders who are recycling to pay for their beach trip!)
  • Think about it, this list can go on and on and on....take time to figure up your wasteful spending....SAVE that money, put it in a jar...and put it to Good use...debt reduction (a bill)...or put it in a savings account for your child. Put it to GOOD use! It does add up!

Happy Saturday! What can you do not to general or money! :-)

Psst...sometimes that wasteful spending is good for the soul...we need it once in a a meal out etc...don't beat yourself up....but stop where you can! :-)
