Stop buying more stuff- Ask yourself , Do I really need this? Will it make my life better? Will I use this to make is worthwhile before I loose interest or store it?
Buy used instead of new- Do you have friends or neighbors that you could buy their stored stuff from them? New cars lose 30% of their value just driving them off the lot when bought, buy used.
Buy the basics- Do you need all the bells and whistles on the new pc that you buy? Do you watch all the TV channels you have bought?
Use up what you do have- Drive the car until fixing it is no longer a viable option to a used one. Don’t throw away the shirt just because it is missing a button.
Recycle, if you can’t reuse- This goes for clothes, electronics, and household items. Perhaps someone else can fix and use what you no longer can?
Cut down on waste- Bake more from scratch, instead of heating from a box, take cans, paper, glass to recycle centers.
Think smaller- From smaller portions on your plate and what you drink (do you really NEED the 64oz of soda pop?). Do you need extra room in a home? While home sizes have doubled since the baby boom, family size has decreased by half in that time as well. Do you need the SUV or would something smaller be fine?
Cut down on driving- Make your time away from the house more productive by running as many errands in one trip; Delaying the desire to get something immediately and pick it up when you have more errands to run.
