When the bar of soap is getting too thin to use, don't throw it out. Wet it and wet the new bar then stick them together. It works even better if they've both just been exposed to a long hot shower.

What small frugality tips do you have?

I usually just use it until i cant hold it no more, I never thought of putting them together, when i eat something with sauce and i have bread i use teh bread to soak up teh remaining sauce

When you are whoring and your whoreness gets thin, do you stick it to your new whoreness so that you can whore longer and cheaper?

Unlock a chain from the outside: WTF are they talking about?

Remember to bring important things by leaving them with your keys/shoes/etc: I do this. It works.

Sources for your thesis from bibliography of wikipedia/good book: I do this, it works.

Buy some time by sending a renamed .mp3 file: Fine if your teacher is an idiot, but you're begging to get caught.

Get your thumbdrive back by putting an identification.txt on it: I do this on all my portable media including hard drives. I have no idea if anyone would ever actually look at it.

Get paid to poop: Workpoop FTW.

Free hotel porn and air: I'm skeptical.

Free wi-fi: Adding .jpg at the end will break most URLs. Fail.

Prevent splashing: Why did they illustrate it exactly wrong?

Extend a remote's range: Everyone knows this one. It's never worked for me.

Reboot the credit card machine: I'm skeptical...additionally, WTF is wrong with you if you want to do this to some innocent bystander?

Go straight to your floor: Again, skeptical.

Test a remote: Another option is to aim it at the electric pickup on an electric guitar. You will hear the remote's output converted into sound through the amp.

Extra batteries: The 9v thing is correct. 6 volt lantern batteries are rumored to have C or D cells in them but in actuality they have an odd size that is useless. I'm not familiar with the 12v battery they're talking about. It is a common construction technique for batteries with higher voltage than 1.5, until you get into automotive style batteries (lead acid, etc). Also, battery packs from remote control cars and cordless phones are usually made of rechargable AA batteries.

Beam-style wiper blades...unlike classic hinge-frame blades, the beam style blade doesn't wear out; only the rubber refill/insert wears out. It is worth replacing the refill instead of the whole expensive blade.

Well, to be even more frugal, get the blade at the junkyard. Then if it needs new rubber just give it new rubber.

I wish I could just buy a bulk roll of wiper refill.

Always keep a pack of preparation h wipes and flushable wet wipes around in case you gets diarrhea like crazy. The wet wipes will prolong making your butthole raw and the preparation h will calm it when it does become raw.

Sometimes we post those images that scroll for dozens of pages, full of life hacks and such. I once posted a thread for small tips on how to be frugal (like sticking the sliver of soap to the new bar). Etc.

Why not have a single thread for it all?

I've been binging on this today: http://www.reddit.com/r/LifeProTips
Of course there's always http://lifehacker.com
Then there was the short lived http://life.hackaday.com/

So anyway, while reading Reddit LPT I remembered one of my own. I do a lot of my best thinking in the shower, whether it's figuring out how to fix something or just my grocery list. Unfortunately by the time I get out of the shower I've forgotten. Solution: Buy tub markers/crayons made for little kids to scribble while they take a bath. They're perfect for writing ideas on the shower walls/doors.

I would probably end up drawing seks acts and leaving dirty notes for wifey :fp:

That would work too.

Here's another one. Don't have a headlight dinger? Hang something from your keys/around the ignition cylinder when you turn the lights on, so you will have to take it off to get the keys out. I use a harbor freight flashlight, which hangs from my headlight knob when they're off so I remember to use it.

Just saw this one on Reddit:
LPT: Eat your burger over your french fries so the grease drips onto them

I've been doing that for years, it's great.
:moogusta:

Also put a layer of fries between the bun and meat.

http://www.reddit.com/r/LifeProTips/comments/1tmmmz/lpt_when_getting_a_universal_remote_control_type/
When getting a universal remote control, type the instructions along with your device codes in a small piece of paper and store them in the battery compartment.
http://i.imgur.com/V6vmkrx.jpg

I've always done that. Works great. I don't bother with the instructions, just the codes, because I can usually figure out the instructions. Also I download the manual in PDF and stick it in my Dropbox where I'll always be able to find it. Just now I realized it would make sense, if the model number isn't clearly labeled, to write the model number on the note in the battery compartment too.

carry all your presents in a laundry basket

Been doing that for years too. Not just presents but all manner of stuff like that. Laundry baskets are GREAT for hauling around a bunch of stuff.

The only way I'd see that being useful is if you had like a party or something and wanted to quickly just slice a few pints in half and hand them out. Pero half way through the side of your "bowl" is gonna fall off.

Another fail:
LPT: You can save a little money by eliminating body wash from your daily routine by substituting hair shampoo instead. The foamy bubbles on your head are more than enough to cleanse the rest of your body and leave you feeling clean.
Life Pro Tips

The higher end product you use the better the results. I use Nexus Therappe shampoo and it has a fragrance of coconut. On a couple of occasions, I've received compliments on the way I smell. Skin feels great - very soft and smooth). Discovered this by accident when I was in a super hurry in the shower and thought, "What the hell, I'm in a hurry, just use the shampoo. Frugality begins at home. every little bit helps! Here's a link on the subject:

So I can buy $20 shampoo and skip using $1 soap, or I can buy $1 shampoo and $1 soap and not smell feminine?

OTOH this is a good one:
LPT: Name your pet something you won't be embarrassed screaming around town if they get lost.

It's pretty embarrassing driving around town screaming, "Stinkfist!!! STIIINKFIIIST!!!" because the little asshole finally got the balls to scale the fence.

When you open a shrink-wrapped package of paper plates, disposable cups, etc, open the bottom. That way, as it sits there waiting for the next time you take one, dust settles on the underside of the next plate/cup rather than the business end.

When microwaving a frozen meal that comes in a tray (such as a lasagna), take its box apart at the seams and stand the box up over it like a tent. That allows it to be as uncovered as the instructions require while protecting the microwave from splatter.
