Commodities you own too many of – Things that can eat your savings – part 1

Hey Guyz, Today I am gonna discuss about some common things which we normally have in our possession, some personal things may be. These are day-to-day commodities which we need practically everyday. But we usually gather multiples of them without any proper reason, so few of these turns into too many of them. Let’s check on some of those which we can cut off to save some bucks..yeah!

Bed Sheets – If you have more than two kids and you need to change bed sheets daily, then you really require more than two or three sets of sheets for your each bed. But if you have a grown child then you don’t need ¾ pairs of bed sheets, 1 or 2 sets will be more than enough for you. So, stop buying extra pair of sheets. Keep looking for quality instead of quantity, consider comfort rather than luxury. You can also have some bucks in your pocket if you sell your old sheets to a garage or backyard sale. You can also donate old pairs to dog shelters.

Transparent glasses – You’ll prefer Wine glasses, specially for drinking juice or soda, martini glasses for party…right? But seriously, do you really require different glasses for different purpose? Some people will disagree, but if you also go for the trend, it will fill your cupboards but simultaneously empty your wallet. Many of us normally use same glasses for drinking different beverages.

Handy towels – Similar as bed sheets, the towels. Is it necessary to change new towel in every week or month? Or much worse, after every bath or shower? Many people use different towel for different purpose. Like – a hair towel, a bath towel, a hand towel etc. Don’t change it so frequently, if you really want to change it, donate old towels to some place else like an animal shelter or something. Put aside big ones to use it on the beach or while having a tan beside the pool. Make space in your closet by buying less number of handy towels, increase using old ones more often.

Cleaning/Grooming Products – Specially for ladies, whether it’s face products, hair products, nail products, hair baubles or anything else, we are all a bit choosy. We normally always try to gather the best with great prices. But now it is time to eliminate that habit. Modify your routine, whether it’s a bath product or a cleaning product, cut out things you don’t use. Try to use low budget commodities, like medicated products and local made cleaners, stop going for the brand. It will save a lot from your budget.
