Welcome to a new feature on the blog called the “Tuesday Tip Jar” where I will share awesome savings and financial tips as I find them. I might not have something for you every Tuesday, but when I do, you’ll find it here!
Starting Debt (01.01.19): $126,310.77
Current Debt: $109,710.00
Total Paid Off: $16,600.77
Income Going to Savings: 2%
For some of you this may be one of those “duh” tips that you’ve known about forever, but it was new to us, so I thought I’d share.
Like everyone else, we have things that we buy every single month without fail. Think of things like toilet paper, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc.
If you do as well, then you should know that Amazon offers some pretty good prices on these items as it stands, and if you shop around on the site you can even find prices that beat Costco in some cases.
If you subscribe to these items using Amazon’s Subscribe and Save feature, you automatically take an additional 5% off of each item. You can set the frequency, can cancel at any time, and can even manually choose to pause for a month if you over order on any item.
If you subscribe to 5 or more items in a month, you get 15% off of every order! Between things like toothpaste, dish soap, paper towels, and the stuff mentioned above, I’ve got my deliveries now set up to where I’m hitting that 5 item limit every month. 15% every month in savings is pretty solid!
Worth looking into for sure.
