A great way to save money easily is to reduce your monthly bills in simple ways. For example, you can reduce your water bill by reducing the amount of water that goes down the toilet with each flush. To do this, simply flush the toilet and then place a large water bottle inside the tank, which will ultimately cause it to fill up with a smaller amount of water, resulting in a lower water bill.

3. Make a multipurpose small box

The way you maintain your tools will determine how they will serve you in the future, and if you want to make sure that they don’t rust, we strongly advise you keep them in a plastic container filled with rice. The rice will absorb moisture which will prevent your tools from rusting, keeping them in excellent condition over time.

9. Remove rust from tools

The only annoying thing about washing dishes is not having a place to put your sponge when it's done. To solve this problem, prepare a sponge dish using a liquid soap, shampoo, or conditioner bottle: Cut the bottom of the bottle and remove it, then cut two straight lines down the bottle. Cut from one line around the bottle to the next so that one strip of plastic is left. Cut a circle at the bottom of the strip, and now you can place it on your kitchen faucet where the wet sponge will drain directly into the sink.

11. Turn on a remote control with only one battery
