We often overlook our gardening mistakes with the hope that others will too. This year let’s take them one by one and fix them. The top eight mistakes and remakes are below…. I know, I could have said makeovers, but it didn’t rhyme.
So, you want to know how to save on toilet paper… that wasn’t the thought in naming our family blog How We Roll, but let’s roll out the statistics:
Studies have been done on how much toilet paper
the average American uses.
One independent study we’ve found was penned by Josh Madison on his website joshmadison.com. Josh was kind enough to break down how much TP he used over a one-year period. He provides extremely detailed data in his report; down to the start and end date of each roll, and average sheets used and cost per day. His study showed that in one year and four days he used 49 rolls of toilet paper bathroom tissue,or 49,000 sheets, at an about cost of $52.43. Now, I’m not sure what Josh was eating but that breaks down to 134 sheets a day – that seems like a lot!
What would your weekly supermarket run look like if you had a billion in the bank? For oil magnate T. Boone Pickens, grocery shopping is less extravagant than you might expect: composing a strict shopping list and taking no more cash with him than the list dictates. The billionaire applies more discipline to his big shop than most of us despite a financial buffer zone that would cover 300,000 jobseeker’s allowances for a year. Of course, what he writes on that list may well be astonishingly expensive, but the point is that Boone – like many others among the rich and famous – does not use his infinite chequebook as a license to splurge. – These people are FRUGAL!
New to being frugal? Here is a quick video letting you know what you are in for. Been here for a while? I’m sure you will be able to relate. Either way, hopefully this light hearted video finds you well. And yes, I realize I should not drink too much caffeine before shooting videos. I’m usually better behaved then this. 😉
I am a simple living creature that finds joy in things that money doesn’t typically buy. I have been called a “frugal minimalist”. How about you? This is my top ten list of things that I do not buy or just simply stopped spending money or time on. Enjoy!
Join me on my journey as I enjoy the benefits of living in financial freedom and come along to learn how I did it:)
