Easy Savings: Feb 2011

Here is one way I like to save money without doing any extra work. This may not be suitable for everyone depending on their views towards personal hygiene. Like a lot of people, I like to wash my hands after I’ve been out for most of the day. So after a meal at home, usually dinner, I leave the dirty dishes in the sink. When I come home from work the next day I wash those dishes right away. When the dishes are clean, so are my hands. So I don’t have to then go use the washroom sink to wash my hands separately with hand soap.

Estimated annual time saved on hand washing? 2.5 Hours
Estimated annual savings on hand soap? $3.00
Not much, but the money will add up over the years if you invest it and take advantage of compounding growth.

That's a quirky but good tip 🙂

I compound my handwashing needs too. Soap can be expensive (especially if you use the liquid soap).

I use liquid soap, I find it easier to lather. Thanks for dropping by again.
