How to save money

    Inflation is hitting harder and harder every week.
    I'm finding it more and more difficult to save any money.
    Some ideas I have for cutting costs include:

    -Drying my clothes outside.
    -Closing off rooms in my girlfriends house that we don't really live in to cut back on cooling costs.
    -Opening window curtains during the day instead of turning on lights.
    -Making grocery trips to buy stuff as needed and not stuff I might want later (Only could work because I live near a grocery store).
    -Using coffee grounds twice instead of once.
    -Getting a small 4cylinder car to replace my gas guzzling Ford Escape.

    I have a few more ideas but I haven't thought them out enough to type them up.

    In the last week I spent a thousand dollars and it kind of sucks but some of that was in part due to 1 time a year payments for things like taxes and my cell phone bill.
    Either way, grocery and gasoline cost more and more and electricity just doubled so I am really trying to think this out more.

    I'd like to close off the laundry room in the house with a door since there is already a door jam in place and we only go in there to do laundry.
    I think that would cut out some cooling costs.
    Also the kid's room has this attic/closet attached that has a shitty piece of plywood separating the 2 and if I could seal that off better then perhaps we could save some more money there too.

    Also, the central air conditioning in this house sort of sucks as a lot of the air is wasted through poor duct work.
    I'd like to be able to cool the rooms we use and not waste 2/3rd of it cooling the already cool basement and rooms we don't hang out in all day.

    After having worked on my car this last weekend I am leaning toward getting rid of it more.
    It is costing me a lot of money to keep running and to keep gas in it.
    Unfortunately the used car market is fucking bonkers right now.
    But as it sits I really don't even want to drive my girlfriend or the kid around in my old car.
    I need to look into getting a moped maybe or something 100+mpg

    Did you quit smoking?
    How close is the food store if it's close get a bicycle and a back pack you'd save on gas and get in shape it's a win win.

    Only reason you're going to out pace inflation is by hedging against it. Lrn2stockmarket.
