Today's money saving hint- don't throw away what you will need to buy.

Seems simple, right? But think about the things we buy that we havbe thrown away a perfectly good- and free- replacement of.
Confused? Question- do you get plastic bags when you shop? Do you then throw then away, or return them to the storefor recycling, and the buy garbage bags? This is a perfecr example. Use those bags for your garbage instead.
On the subject of bags- do you toss out the bags your bread, tortillas, and produce come in, and then buy baggies. Another way to save money-use them for your sandwiches instead! Wax ceral bags, shaken out, also make excellent sandwich bags.
Ask yourself before you throw something away "Is this just like something I will need to buy?" and you will be surprised how much you can save.
