I’m really trying to “make things last” to the most extreme degree occasionally, even if that means reusing napkins that I dry my hands with to scrub my kitchen counters after the napkins have tried.
I would never do this with a napkin used to scrub dirty hands, however it still makes myself and others think excruciating having to save something in a corner that I simply used to make my scrub hands dry again.
When you’re on a fixed or limited income, you have to come up with unique ways to save money, plus occasionally you have to get creative. Even if it means taking leftovers from a meal plus using them to make a up-to-date meal altogether. I don’t like to admit it, however this is how a lot of eating establishments that I worked for in university did to save money. Sometimes they’d stretch ingredients far past the proposed dates, consistently leaving myself and others puzzled how all of their customers did not come down with food poisoning each evening. But there are far less dramatic ways to save a few dollars here plus there. For instance, some people might mistakenly know that HEPA filters are like Heating as well as A/C filters plus need to be upgraded every more than 2 months at least. Some people will even upgrade their Heating as well as A/C filters once a month. However, HEPA filters are nearly twice the thickness of a random MERV 8 Heating as well as A/C filter, so they can be left in your air purification system for as long as 6 months. If you’re a smoker, you might need to upgrade your HEPA filter more often than 6 months, however I don’t have this issue. On top of that, the pre-filter is made out of activated charcoal plus it prevents dust buildup in the HEPA filter, making the latter last longer.
