1. Pack Your Lunch

Best Frugal Ways to Save Money

Don’t we all miss the days of wishing your Mom would buy you a lunchable but she says you can’t because you eat lunch for free at school. Well we all got older and now we are not forced to eat the mystery rib sandwich or those dry ass chicken nuggets. We are now perfectly content with eating at Panera Bread or Chipotle.

All of that is besides the point people. In fact do not read the above paragraph. Buying your lunch is really expensive. It cost too much bruh. Fix your food ahead of time so you’re not spending money en la calle. (in the street) đŸ™‚

The average American family spends $182 on paper towels. Ok this one is not a huge money saver but I’d like to make the point that a little goes a long way. Adopting more frugal habits like this one can add up to some cold hard cash savings.

3. Make Coffee at Home

Decide to make your coffee at home today. My wife and I love our 4 dollar Iced Caramel Macchiatos but that can add up. The average American spends 1,100 dollars a year on coffee. About  100 million Americans drink coffee everyday. That’s billions of dollars on a beverage. It’s time to cut back people, learn some self control. You’re drinking water strained through crushed up beans for god’s sake… now where did i leave my coffee cup…dammit!

4. Don’t Poo at Home


Clearly if you think about this you will see the savings. A few are obvious, you will save on toilet paper and water. I know being frugal with your toilet paper is dangerous but it will save you some money.

Older toilets can use anywhere from 3.5 gallons to 7 gallons of water per flush. Newer toilets are efficient and use around 1.6 gallons per flush or 1.6 GPF. You have to look for the saving people, do think Warren Buffet got to where he is today from pooing at home, of course not.

And to all the people that like to roll their hand around the toilet paper and use half a roll of paper, when the economy crashes you will be too broke to wipe your ass. Respectfully, of course.

The average american uses 50 pounds of toilet paper in one year. Try to cut that back, maybe give yourself a pound of paper to use every month. Again use the bathroom at work, school, restaurants, wherever you can. My favorite is at a relatives house, feels like home but its not.

Here are the not so obvious savings:

Cleaning Supplies


Light Bulbs


Toilet Maintenance

5. Don’t Pay for the Internet

Who really needs the internet…ok well everyone needs the internet. How would anyone see my blog without it?

Maybe a network of enthusiast that attaches thumb drives to pigeons and hope that other people find it enjoy it and release the pigeons or maybe penguins for Atlantic travel, it’s still a work in progress.

True story, my father used his neighbors internet for 10 years before he couldn’t connect to it anymore .My Father is very frugal about spending money. He now pays Verizon for internet now. I was so jealous all those years.

6. Don’t Pay for Cable TV

You should cut your cable TV. Comcast’s advertised price for their triple play package (phone, internet, cable) is 89.99. Now that is without any of the extras like multiple boxes, higher speeds, HD, DVR, you know all the things that make it cost nearly $200 dollars a month.

In our house we are starting to watch YouTube more than Netflix and Hulu. Regular TV comes in a dead last, maybe once or twice a month. Something tells me that I will miss out on something if I don’t keep it. But the truth is that we don’t watch it.

The last show we watched regularly on TV was The Walking Dead. After they did almost a mini series about the Governor in season 4 we stopped watching. Yes I know I’m lame for not watching up to season 7.

In the end it doesn’t even matter, I tried so hard, and fell so far so just cut the damn cable TV. ~Linkin Park

I’m sure you have heard about the Amazon Fire stick and how people are hacking them. I got one for my wife on her birthday! Yayyy! And I got an app called Kodi installed on it view movies for free. I also have Amazon Prime and they have fantastic shows on it.


Conclusion – 6 Best Frugal Ways to Save Money

  1. #4 makes me laugh! But #6 definitely. I can’t express that enough. I haven’t had cable in 3 years and I’m doing fine with just my internet because I can stream everything online. Great post!


    1. Wow 3 years strong with no cable that’s great! I predict that eventually TV and the internet will be the same thing and we won’t have an option anymore. Just having the internet is the way to go until then. I’m glad you enjoyed it Thanks! đŸ™‚
