5 Cool Life Tips That Will Save You A Fortune Or Less


As the cost of living continues to skyrocket and minimum wage stays stagnant, consumers of all ages need to find useful ways to budget, cut corners, and use coupons in order to survive in this capitalist society. There are certain financial tips, such as setting aside 10% of your income every month, that are kind of obvious but there are other DIY (Do It Yourself) tips that you can employ in order to save those dollars!

For example, there is justification for placing toothpaste on a cellular device screen. Obviously, nothing aside from a new screen is going to fix a cracked screen like that but a small dab of toothpaste (make sure it’s paste-based and not those gel types) applied with a microfiber cloth can help reduce the size of small scratches or simply make them less glaring.

So there you go! That’s the first freebie DIY for you! Up next, we’ll get into homemade pillowcases to a DIY dog bed. There are multiple ways for you to save money all the while recycling your used clothes. Here are 5 cool tips that can save you a fortune (or less…).

1. For girls (or guys) who want a crop top for free there is a solution. Find a tank top that you want to convert into a crop top. Cut a square from the bottom up ONLY on the back of the shirt.

Next, cut a straight line down the middle of the front of the shirt from the bottom all the way up to the neckline. At this point your shirt should be missing a huge (square) portion on the back, and it should be cut open on the front down the middle with two flaps.

Wrap the front two flaps around each other and tie it. And there you have it! A crop top made from an old tank top! These crop tops can be suitable for dresses, business casual or simply just casual if you want to flaunt those abs!
