Money Saving Ideas for the Home

What about the rest of the house? Should you just stop in the kitchen and don't work on anything else? I don't think you should, since there are many different ways you can save a bit here and there on energy costs and even help keep things last longer. Don't worry if you can't get to all of these...even one or two should help you a bit more than you think.

Laundry and Home Savings:


Don't think you have to stop in the kitchen! You can save some more if you consider these options.
Keeping temperature of AC down a couple degrees, blinds closing, blackout curtains, running washer on warm or cool instead of hot, using old bars of soap as a laundry assistant, using dryer sheets as cleaning aids, watering down soaps and shampoos to make them last slightly longer, using food materials as beauty products.

Home Stuff

Okay, heating and cooling your house. If you live in a super hot and humid climate like I do, cooling costs can become incredibly prohibitive. How do you save money while staying cool? What's a good temperature to hold your house at? Should you turn your AC off when you leave the house for an extended period of time? What should you do about the windows and blinds? These are all good questions, and I will tell you some ways to help fix the money expenses caused by these issues.
Washing clothes in cooler water. Washing clothes takes time and electricity, both to heat up the water and to run the machine. At my home, we try to use only cold water unless it's super dirty, hang dry our clothes, and to also hand wash those items that are only minimally dirty to save on water and electricity. Plus, if you live in a hot climate, running the dryer adds heat to the house and makes the air conditioning run longer, which costs money. Hang drying can pull heat out and keep the house slightly cooler than allowing the dryer to run and wasting valuable electricity.

Used Saves Cash

Yes, I know there are dangers to buying certain things from thrift stores, but for a lot of products, you can find things a lot cheaper than at the bigger department stores. With thrift stores you can find things that aren't available anymore and you can help reduce your ecological impact and trash footprint. Keeping old things you don't use anymore also takes up space in your home or storage unit and getting rid of them allows others to buy it and use it for longer.
These are just a few types of ways you can save a little bit here here and there. Hope they work for you.

To Conclude

Saving money takes time and energy. It can be somewhat uncomfortable, but if you want to save cash wherever you, sometimes it's not the most comfortable or coolest way. Small measurable steps build success. These steps you take will begin becoming habits, and will create less waste and protect our planet.

Personal Update and Fantastic Finds Boutique introduction!

It's been way too long since I've posted anything! My apologies! Life has gotten in the way a little plus I began my own entrepreneurship adventure! I am selling handmade items, skincare/bath product, and a delicious tea line that I have been working on branding and creating. I also got two little babies that are absolutely adorable AND annoying (what babies aren't at least some of the time) and started an adventure into essential oils! So, here's a bit more about everything:
Introducing Fantastic Finds Boutique!

Fantastic Finds is a boutique designed to give you beautiful and functional products at a discount. We search products to find the most useful products in colors and designs that show off your specific taste or ideas. We sell jewelry, home decor items, kitchen items, and tea ware. That's not all though. Recently, we have decided to create our own line of bath products and face masks and a delicious tea selection. There are black teas and green teas and quite a few herbal blends. I have a lot of trouble trying to stay away from my stock since it's so fantastic! My loss is your gain, however, because you can get your own sample sets and/or bulk sized teas! My tea selection is not listed, so you would have to email sales@fantasticfindsboutique.com OR check out our Facebook page to buy through messenger. Eventually we'll get everything listed, but for now I don't want you missing out! Here's what we have at this moment!

Available Teas for Purchase
Delicious Asian style tea with wonderful flavor. Available for immediate shipping in bulk 1 pound size. Only one available.

Another one of my favorites, with smokey black tea and orange with different spices. Reminds me of orange spice tea with a twist! Available in bulk sizes with a pre-order

A delicious twist on sencha and dragonwell tea! Good for days you need a strong flavor but don't want to make something complicated. Available in 2ish ounce tins and in bulk with a pre-order.

If you want a party in your mouth and adore coconut, then this might be for you! Deliciousness incarnate! This one is one of my favorites and I could drink it ALL DAY! Available in bulk or smaller with a pre order.

Lavender is well known as an herb that promotes calm and relaxation, so drinking this delicious blend is fantastic for relaxing after a really stressful day. Available in bulk with a pre-order.


Tastes like a mint explosion! Mint is well known as a digestive aid for stomach troubles, so this could be fantastic for that late afternoon discomfort! Bulk size available with a pre-order.

This delicious tea is available in 1.75 ounce tins and tastes like a blissful day! Only 2 left, so ordering now will ensure you have a chance to try it out.

Pumpkin spice fans unite! This tea is a delightful twist on the "pumpkin spice" craze and is packed with flavor! Hello Fall in a cup! Available for shipping or pick up immediately in one pound bulk size.

These teas are just a sampling of what's available! I am very excited about this opportunity and am hoping to learn as much as I can about the process so that I can aid you in your own entrepreneur adventure. As I am the owner of both blog and store, I will receive financial benefit from links in this post, but I felt that it was important to share my own stories with you. Transparency is important to me, so here I am. I am going to leave the rest to your own exploration as I don't want to write a book about everything, so I will cut this short here and share more in the next couple days. Good luck and happy saving!
