When you come home from a nice night out to dinner, you set your leftovers in the refrigerator. A few days go by and you haven’t eaten the leftovers, so you toss the rest. If you did that twice a month, you could be throwing away hundreds of dollars each year.
Gray Transportation is always looking for tips for you to save money, be safe, and enjoy your driving time so in today’s blog we are going to point out four things to stop wasting your money on right now.
- Buying name brand. More often than not, the generic brand of food items and cleaning products are just as good as name brand. Name brand items can cost upwards of 50 cents more per product, which will add up in the long run.
- Buying pops and food items at the convenient store. When you shop at the convenient store, you are paying the price for the convenience. With a little planning, you can avoid the cost by buying in bulk and bringing snacks and drinks with you.
- Bottled water. Bottled water is not only harmful to the environment, the cost will also add up quickly. A filter for your faucet can save you plenty of money over the year because a 24 pack of bottled water costs about $4. Fill up a gallon jug of water and keep it in the truck, throughout the day try and drink the entire container. You will feel hydrated and you will save money.
- Eating out too often. Not only is wasting leftovers bad, but going out to eat too often is worse. With meals averaging $10, you could be spending upwards of $150 per month on eating out. You are better off taking a little time to prepare a meal at home before you hit the road for the day.
Gray Transportation hopes these tips will help you stop wasting money on everyday occurrences while on the road. A little bit of planning can keep you from crazy amounts of money on the road. What are you waiting for? Join the team of professional drivers who are driven to succeed.
