The Price is Right Posts

If you’re looking to save some money at home, one of the easiest ways to do it is to look on YouTube.

There are thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands, of videos out there that teach you how to improve your home on a budget. These could be through some general advice, or some easy DIY tricks to save you hiring a professional.

Many of these videos are duplicates, time wasters, and plain suck. So I’ve grabbed the best few for you and compiled them into this easy to consume post. Take a look:

Make your own fabric softener

This video shows you 3 easy ingredients you can put together to create your own fabric softener and save yourself spending a fortune annually on buying in fancy brand names.

For Ladies Only: Trim your hair at home

My fiance said that I should be very clear that guys should under no circumstances do this, but for girls, it’s perfectly fine to give your hair a trim at home. It’ll save you a bit of money and it’s rather simple to do. Check out this video to find out how.

Tint your windows

This is pretty cool, but I’ve never tried it because we have blinds. It basically saves you the need of spending hundreds of dollars on a blind or curtain. Instead you just tint the window to stop so much sunlight getting through, just like how sunglasses work.

You can also get magic (sticky) blackout rolls for this, again, not tried them – just seen them around.

Home made air conditioner?

I would never try this, but I just thought it was cool to see how it could be done if you wanted to. I’ll just stick to paying for a real air conditioner though!

Live in a smaller house

This is a cool video about a family that live in a 168sqft house, sound impossible? Not for them. This video does not show you how to live in a smaller house, if you want to try this, you’ll just need to experience it for yourself. But it does show how their family does it and may inspire you to downsize your property, at least a little bit.

So there you have it, my favourite 5 YouTube videos on saving money in your home. What do you think? Is there any particular videos you really love or have you tried any of the techniques shared in these videos?

General Home Saving Money

If you’re as non-technical as me, you probably have no idea what half of the things in this infographic mean. Nonetheless, we’ll just roll with it, haha.

It is basically just a few cool sources of green energy that may be utilised further in the future.

I don’t know much about green energy. I drive a BMW, and love the roar of a V8 engine, so I’m not the best example of this. But I do understand we need to be more efficient with our energy, and things like this are a great way of actually saving money.

So with that said, take a look at the infographic below:

5 Weirdest Energy Gadgets

InStep Nano Power sounds very cool, nothing like walking powering things. Now if more people would just turn off their engines and go for a walk.

Energy Saving

My whole way of finding content for this blog is infographics, lol. It’s easy inspiration.

I just came across another one that you may find useful, it’s about how being more green can save money.

Most of this is about saving money at home, but there is also a few others that you can do outside of the home, e.g. driving more slowly.

To save you reading the entire thing, I wrote down the 8 ways they share that can save you some money, and help the environment a little bit, win win:

  1. Turn down the thermostat
  2. Use CFL bulbs
  3. Clean your light bulbs
  4. Plant shade trees
  5. Use programmable thermostat
  6. Rechargeable batteries
  7. Turn off your monitor when not in use
  8. Drive slowly

That’s about it. If you want the full details, I’ve included the infographic below:

Watch the video below or scroll down for my recap:

The 7 gadgets that can save you money and cost less than $100 each (approx £60):

  1. Home Workout DVD’s – Who needs a gym membership when you can do it in the comfort of your home
  2. Rechargeable Batteries – An obvious one here that we should all think about using, my keyboard batteries are almost dead, I should have listened to this earlier!
  3. iPhone Docking Station – Turn your phone into a loud music player, alarm clock, and more with a docking station
  4. External Harddrive – You need to backup one way or other and this is a cheap long term way
  5. PC Blue Ray Drive – Even today, blue ray DVD players expensive, pick one of these up for less than $100 and save yourself some easy money
  6. Creative Labs Vado Pocket Video Camera
  7. Klean Kanteen – withstand any element and keep your water fresh to drink

Ok, so a few of these you don’t actually need, but they are pretty cool, and for less than $100… why not right?
