Buying Used Items

Buying use items can be just as good new be it clothing, furniture, kids toys and even a car. There is one thing that I think I will chose not buy new and that is a car, you might say I am too frugal or crazy.

But I try to live my live not keeping up with the Jones. I live within my means.

A new car will depreciate its value by almost 11% once driven by it owner out of the garage. So why should I buy a new when is value decreases from the moment I drive it off.

I would rather wait and buy that car after 2 to 3 years when its value would even reduce further.

Buying Prepared Vegetables

Surely why do we throw away money to those giant supermarkets? Chopped carrots, peeled potatoes, ready to roast fresh peeled vegetables to make your delicious Sunday roast really?

How many knifes do you have in your house that you can used to peal and cut these vegetables? Do you have few minutes to spare cutting vegetable?

Here is a good example that will make you think, buying Asda chopped Carrot Batons cost £0.56 per 300grams where as buying Asda unprepared carrots cost £0.29 per kg.

Surely choosing the second option will help you save more money.
