Repurpose things in order to save time and money

June 26, 2018 0 By Smartshopperdaphne

A great way to save money is by reusing the things you already have at home. One way to do it is by looking at things differently, especially the containers of items you buy frequently.

If you drink coffee and use creamer you can reuse the creamer container to store your sugar. Use the creamer bottles that have a locking cap on top so your sugar is secure and won’t spill out.

You can also reuse containers after you make your lunch. Many manufacturers sell pre-sliced lunch meat in containers that are basically plastic storage containers. So once you finish making your lunch you can reuse the container to store leftovers or your lunch and reuse it again and again.

So save money by looking at the containers your groceries come in and you might find another use for them!

Lastly, my favorite to-go containers for food storage are the ones from Pei Wei. Their plastic containers are super reusable. I use them over and over again when I travel. They are solid and the lids stay on tight.
