If you like to drink coffee or tea over a period of a few hours, make a pot of either and put it in a thermos. You won't have to pay for electricity to keep it hot (as in a coffee pot) or keep going back to make more (as in cups of tea.)

When you come across a good buy on chicken, buy as much as you can, then boil it and take the meat from the bones and package and freeze it in cup sized portions. It's much cheaper than buying canned chicken for those quick recipes.

You've heard of making dish scrubbers from those plastic mesh bags that produce, etc. sometimes comes in. They work best and last forever if you crochet or knit them into a square or rectangle. Sew them together with floss or fishing line to make one long strip. If you're into macrame or knotting, try that, too.

If your little ones, like most, enjoy playing with the box as much or more than the toy that came in it, why not make the box an official toy? You can cover it with contact paper or use markers to decorate it. A box full of fancied up boxes would make a great gift.
