    Default How do you save money on everyday expenses?

    This question is inspired by the many threads on reddit about saving money.

    I was wondering how the members of this forum budget and save money on living/life expenses?

    I buy my dog's toys at the dollar store. Spending more than a buck on a dog toy would be pointless, since she destroys them within an hour of receiving them.

    Oooh is this going to be like one of those, buy buying this toothbrush you are contributing to the torment of the underpriveledged. Awareness.

    Money just doesn't seem real to me, just some sort of imaginary concept. Makes it easy to overspend, maybe some awareness would be a good thing. I mean it isn't as if I am rolliing in it.

    Your dog makes me squee with delight. I have three cats at the moment though.

    Yeah, while I rarely purchase anything really tactile, I have an issue with buying books and music. The library is too far, and I am too lazy. Gas prices though.

    I buy a lot of books on my kindle app for tablet because I can't be bothered to get in my car.

    Spending my precious thoughts on deciding what is cheapest is bit of a waste, and unhealthy for my own well-being as a result of myself becoming anxious and quick to lose my inner peace when spending too much energy on monotonous, everyday tasks. (one of the reasons my school record isn't the greatest...).

    There are times I go on a kindle book buying bender. It's embarrassing. I got the kindle unlimited, maybe that will help me reign it in.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I reduce my need for books by reading articles by the author. I only read non fiction.

    I also try to practice minimalism and stoicism and have no need for anything other than the desire to be stronger. I try.
