I’m particularly trying to “make things last” to the most drastic degree sometimes, even if that means reusing napkins that I dry my hands with to clean my bedroom counters after the napkins have tried.
I would never do this with a napkin used to wash dirty hands, however it still makes myself and others suppose exhausting having to save something in a corner that I simply used to make my clean hands dry again.
When you’re on a fixed or limited income, you have to come up with particular ways to save money, & sometimes you have to get creative. Even if it means taking leftovers from a meal & using them to make a current meal altogether. I do not like to admit it, however this is how a lot of restaurants that I worked for in college did to save money. Occasionally they’d stretch ingredients far past the advocated dates, always leaving myself and others puzzled how all of their purchasers did not come down with food poisoning each night. But there are far less dramatic ways to save a few dollars here & there. For instance, some people might mistakenly guess that HEPA filters are prefer HVAC filters & need to be replaced every three months at least. Some people will even replace their HVAC filters once a month. However, HEPA filters are nearly twice the thickness of a random MERV 8 HVAC filter, so they can be left in your media media air cleaner for as long as multiple months. If you’re a smoker, you might need to replace your HEPA filter more often than multiple months, however I don’t have this issue. On top of that, the pre-filter is made out of activated charcoal & it prevents dust buildup in the HEPA filter, making the latter last longer.
