Here are a few more ways to save significant amounts of money from the new book by Jeff Yeager called Cheapskate Next Door.
-Cut pieces of foam insulating board to fit windows in the winter and put them in at night or when you’re away to save a fortune on heat.
-Save big money on a car rental by helping auto transport companies relocate vehicles. Lay down a deposit and they’ll provide a vehicle and tank of gas for approved drivers.
-Over a lifetime you’ll save about 5,000 gallons of gas and $30,000 or more by driving only cars with manual transmissions.
-Dry cleaning is a $9 billion a year business in the United States, loaded with toxic chemicals. According to an article in Consumer Reports, “Dry-cleaning isn’t the only way to safely clean garments labeled dry-clean only, and other methods might even do a better job.”
