#117 – use coupons

You don’t have to go crazy, but spending a few minutes searching for an online coupon code, using an offer received in the mail, or asking a sales clerk or checkout person if there are any discounts you are eligible for, could save you some money. If it takes too long to find an active code, or the process to get the discount is onerous, it may not be worth the aggravation, but a few seconds to save real dollars? Definitely worth it!

#104 – learn to cook

Everyone should be able to make some simple meals.  If you are new to the kitchen, start with meals that involve little cooking (i.e. salads, sandwiches), and/or that don’t have a lot of ingredients.  Take a cooking class to gain confidence.  Watch instructional videos (cooking shows, Youtube videos, etc.).  Order from a meal kit service if you aren’t sure what to buy.  If possible, make extra and freeze or save your leftovers for the next day.
