Why don’t you try these tipid tricks if you’re having a problem saving money? These things are easy to do!

1. Smelly armpit? Use tawas instead of branded deodorants!



Well, the effect is just the same, right? Your armpit won’t smell like vinegar and it’s 10x cheaper than branded deodorant.


2. Using the same toothbrush for over a year… No, don’t say “Ewww!”

3 in 1 coffee just costs about P6 compared to Starbucks which costs P150. And STAY AWAY from friends who always want to be treated to Starbucks!

Alternatively, you can just buy a Starbucks mug and put generic coffee on it and TAKE a picture of it.
