Here are few ways to reuse, re-purpose or recycle things you already have in order to save money.

Keep all the paper you use from printing. Instead of throwing that paper in the trash, throw it in a box near your printer and reuse it for scrap paper.

Often when you buy things they come in a glass jar, like spaghetti sauce and pickle jars. Once you are done using the contents, rinse out the glass jar. You can use it to collect your cooking grease or to store things like pens, crayons and the list can go on.

Don’t throw those sandwich bags away. Instead rinse the plastic bag out and let dry. Then cut one bottom corner off of the plastic bag and use the bag to put frosting on a cake or squeeze mayo on a sandwich.
