Vacuum bags and traffic
Claire at Tired But Happy posted recently about the power of "putting it off" when it comes to saving money. I'd like to say all my thrifty ideas are born of motivation, but more often than not, they result from procrastination. For instance, I keep putting off a trip to the Oreck store for more vacuum bags. Instead, I take the full bag outside, empty it in the corner of the flowerbed, then roll and seal the end with duct tape. This is its fourth re-use and probably its last. I won't be able to avoid the Green Hills traffic forever!
