1. Knick-Knack Decorations Although they are cute and hard to resist, they are sometimes a waste of money, especially if they never get used or thrown away after one holiday if they are holiday themed.
2. No Cheap Furniture Buying some expensive furniture may be costly at the moment, but in the end, it will be better economically because in a year you won’t have to replace it
3. No Disposable Plates Or Disposable Cups Buying disposable plates, cups, and cutlery adds up eventually. The best thing to do would be to buy one set of everything and reuse it.
4. Minimize Technology If you have a game consul, then you don’t need an Amazon Fire Stick. Or if you have cable, then you don’t need Amazon, Hulu, and YouTube Red.
5. Keep Tupperware to a Minimum This is something I am struggling with so bad! I tend to lose the lids or lose the base, and then I end up at target buying more Tupperware. But if I were just a little bit more organized, I would know where all the pieces are at, and I’m sure it would save me a lot of money.
6. Bottled Water The price of bottled water can add up eventually. The best thing to do to get would be a filter that connects to your sink or the big 5-gallon jug, that can be filled at most grocery stores for little to nothing.
7. No Yard Workers Instead of paying somebody else to cut your lawn, you could invest in a lawn mower and do it yourself.
These are just a few simple things that may lower your home expenses. I do not have much experience with this because of my age. These are only a few things I have picked up on since I’ve started paying my way, and also mistakes I have seen my parents or family members make.
