This year is all about saving money every day while trying to increase your income potential. If you did one thing each day that could save as little as $5 over the course of a year, you could have an extra $1800 in your pocket at the end of the year. Not all of these tips may apply to you, so to keep it fair, not all of them will apply to me.

Every week we do laundry in our apartment complex. Every week we end up going after that pain in the butt neighbor who uses a quart of nasty-smelling powdered laundry detergent in each load. The powder is everywhere and then my laundry ends up smelling so “spring fresh” I get a migraine.

Not anymore. A quarter cup of vinegar in place of fabric softener reduces or eliminates smells. It’s quick, easy, and cheap. Now I don’t have to rewash. It also helps for clothes that have a mildew smell, smoke smell, and more.
