A series of conversations about saving money

Me: When we are done with Watchmen we should get rid of HBO

Kai: OK.

Me: I’m going to figure out how to coupon. Also we should get things only if they are on sale.

Kai: OK.

***

Me: Maybe we should change Ellis’ pre-K to only part-time instead of full time to save money.

Kai: OK.

***

Me: We should meal prep more and order out less.

Kai: OK.

Me: I think I’ll try to make our own soap and Laundry detergent.

Kai: NO! Too far. Too far. I’m putting my foot down! (He actually said that)

Me: uh-huh. [gives side eye. Researches ingredients for home-made detergents and soaps]

Seriously, though, tell me your money saving hacks. I’m not looking to create stockpiles of anything, which seems to be the result of good couponing skills…but, maybe I can do this in moderation with good results. Maybe getting rid of paper towels and wet wipes and other recurrent purchases completely is a good idea– switch to washable/ re-usable alternatives. But would the increased laundry still make it cost effective and environmentally friendly? I guess, as with everything, this will be a one-step-at-a-time kind of thing.
