52 Money Save Ways: Week 46: Go Green

Did you know that going green can help you save money? In this week's 52 week challenge tip we talk about tips that can help you go green and SAVE!!

This week’s tip is a broad subject, but I wanted to just talk a little bit about some ways that going towards an more Eco-friendly lifestyle can actually help you save green as well. Here are some examples.

Making your own cleaners– Not only are the ingredients bought to make your own cleaners green (think baking soda, vinegar and lemons), but they are often very low cost as well. Making your own cleaners is easy and usually takes less than 10 minutes. Look for recipes on Pinterest for Inspiration.

Re-using things– If you find another use for something, such as a plastic food container or a pair of hose with a run in it, you get double the use for your money and less items end up in the trash over time. Also, cut your cost by purchasing things in bulk. Not only does this cost less in many cases, it also cuts down on paying for packaging.

Growing your own food- While most people are not capable of growing all of their own food, growing at least some can help reduce your need to go to the store and buy it as well as your carbon footprint. Whatever you have left after the harvest that you can’t eat up right away can be canned or frozen for use throughout the winter.

Cloth diapering or using rags instead of paper towels- Anything disposable is completely wasteful. Using  rags to do your cleaning and cloth diapering are only a couple of ways you can cut out all of the disposables in your life. Get creative and try to see what else you buy just for the sake of using it once and tossing it. How can you make a  more permanent solution? Finding ways to cut down on this saves you so much money in the long run!
