Now here’s a tip

• The end of the year is a great time to pick up next year’s holiday decorations at a discount. Before you pack away your holiday lights, ornaments, cards, etc., do an inventory and see if you are able to find what you need to complete your look at a slashed price.

• Computer grocery lists can make not only shopping easier, but organization as well. Keep a file listing all the items you usually purchase from week to week. You even can create sections based on where certain items are located throughout the store. This will ensure that you don’t miss something, necessitating a return trip to the store. Stay organized to save money.

• “Keep a small package of antibacterial wipes in your car to clean your hands after pumping gas. Not only is there any potential gas to get off your hands, but those handles don’t get cleaned often, and are very dirty.” — R.D. in South Carolina

• “If you have extra papers that are printed only on one side, save them. You can cut them in quarters and staple several sheets together to make scrap-paper pads to keep near the telephone or on the fridge. They are handy, and you’ll be reusing material, which is good for the environment.” — U.L. in Missouri

• Putting up new calendars? Before you toss your old one, be sure to look through it for important anniversaries, and cut out and save any pictures or art that might be reusable for craft projects. (c) 2011 King Features Synd.
