If you’re in debt, then I would definitely read Dave Ramsey’s book The Total Money Makeover which you can check out here. He’s helped MILLIONS of people climb their way out of debt and have financial peace and security. So DEFINITELY check him out!

Also! He has another great book called the Legacy Journey which is a great read. Check it out here!

Trash cans to the rescue

The dollar store trash cans can give you a pot for your plants. You can spray-paint the can, stick some wood planks on the outside, put in some plants, and you’re good to go!

From frames to clipboards

Frames can be costly and take up a lot of space in your room. And I’m sure your child’s accomplishments outnumber the number of frames you can hang on the walls. Clipboards are easier to hang the pictures on and can be changed easily.

Crayons or popsicles

Everybody has that one popsicle tray in their house they never use, so it’s time to put it to use. You can organize crayons color-wise for your little one by putting each color in a different holder.

Frozen sponges

Get some sponges wet and put them in the freezer; this will make them into ice packs. Use them to soothe a bruise or keep a packed lunch cold.

No need for a cleaning cabinet

Have a lot of cleaning equipment lying around that you can’t find space for? Shoe racks are here for you. You can put in different cleaning tools in sperate compartments to make cleaning easier.

Hooks in the kitchen

Kitchens are always overflowing with utensils and crockery. And you wouldn’t want to throw them away, but there’s no space, so what can you do?

Well, you can hang them up on the inside of your cabinets by attaching hooks you find from the dollar store. It’s way less costly than buying a new utensil holder.

Serve easy

If you’re a person who likes to host parties, then this hack is for you. Don’t want to spill drinks on guests? Well, you can put glasses in a muffin tin and make serving convenient for yourself.

These dollar hacks are just a few of many, but they’re definitely lifesavers! So give them a try!
