The effects of the new coronavirus have changed our lives. It is not easy to go shopping like before, and it is becoming necessary to review the way of shopping. Even for consumables that you use every day, you can reduce the number of purchases and save money by slightly changing the selection method. Here are five great items I’ve bought to save money.
◆ 1. Coffee filter
Perhaps you have more opportunities to brew and drink your own coffee at home while refraining from going out. If you brew coffee several times a day, it will consume a lot of paper filters.
So I bought a stainless steel dripper that doesn’t require a paper filter. It’s easy and economical because you don’t have to set a paper filter every time.
◆ 2. Double-edged razor
It is a cartridge type T-shaped razor that is convenient for shaving and treating unwanted hair, but will the replacement blade soon be damaged?
If you think the replacement blade is expensive, we recommend a double-edged razor. The double-edged razor is a traditional stainless steel razor that is used with a spare blade set. A double-edged razor replacement blade costs around 60 yen per piece, which is more economical than a cartridge-type razor replacement blade.
◆ 3. Silicon zipper bag
Just like a freezer bag, you can store it in the refrigerator or freezer with pre-made items and leftovers. Made of durable silicone, it can be washed and used repeatedly, and will not tear or leak liquid. It can also be used in dishwashers, microwave ovens and ovens.
Since it can be sealed, it can be used when traveling with a toothbrush or when bringing a smartphone to the bath. If you have one, you can use it for various purposes. It can be used about 3000 times.
◆ 4. Beeswax wrap
Beeswax wrap is an eco-friendly wrap that can be washed and used repeatedly. The cloth is coated with beeswax so that it sticks firmly like a wrap. You can use it repeatedly by washing your hands lightly with cold water after use.
It is mainly used to wrap used vegetables and fruits and to cover dishes. It can’t be used in microwave ovens or real people, but the amount of plastic wrap you buy on the market has clearly decreased.
◆ 5. Cotton puff
There is also a cotton puff made of cotton that can be washed and used repeatedly, which is indispensable for daily life such as when applying lotion or cleansing. Compared to disposable cotton puffs, it costs less and can be removed cleanly. Rinse lightly and machine washable.
I tried to use all the items I introduced and collected only the items that I thought were saving money.
In addition, items that can be used repeatedly can reduce garbage and reduce the environmental burden. Because it’s something you use every day, why not try incorporating items that can be used repeatedly?
